Suzzanne & Brett Cromwell

Founded by avid film buffs Suzzanne and Brett Cromwell, the Lowell Film Collaborative (LFC) is a grassroots initiative dedicated to enhancing the burgeoning artistic community of Lowell, Massachusetts, by celebrating the art of motion pictures. Through film & video screenings, discussions, and film festivals, the LFC works to support local and regional cinema and motion picture artists while developing partnerships with local businesses and organizations. In addition to Suzzanne and Brett, the LFC includes a community of supporters who are like-minded film enthusiasts that share their desire to see more independent film in Lowell, AND the Merrimack Valley.

What lurks BELOW? Come venture beneath the streets of the city into the eerily abandoned basement of Lowell’s own HyperText Bookstore & Cafe and experience a frightful evening with fellow horror fans! Our “Horror Below” Movie Night guarantees scares and screams with a film showing of the terrifying creature feature “The Descent.” To warm your bones, we’ll have hot mulled cider available for purchase as well as all your favorite movie candy. We’ll even provide chairs for your seating enjoyment, but we highly recommend bringing your OWN pillows, blankets, or outdoor lawn chairs for optimum cozy movie comfort. But keep your wits about you — creatures of the night just love disturbing an audience.

About The Film

“The Descent” (2005, 1hr 39min)    |
Rated R

FEAR. CLAUSTROPHOBIA. ANXIETY. TERROR! One year after a tragic accident, 6 girlfriends meet in a remote part of the Appalachians for their annual extreme outdoor adventure, in this case the exploration of a cave hidden deep in the woods. Far below the surface of the earth, disaster strikes, and there’s no way out. The group splinters, and each woman pushes on, fiercely combatting the elements to locate an exit. But there is something else with them, lurking under the earth.
