Remaining true to its tradition of bringing to town the best of eccentric, outrageously funny and extravagantly over the top films, Cinequest San Jose Film Festival VII's After Hours selections guarantee, once again, to be one of the funniest and coolest rendezvous of the Festival. Also, don't miss our After Hours Celebration. First a screening of Afro Promo at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, February 4th at Camera 3, followed by a party at South First Billiards(420 S. First St.) Tickets for the After Hours Celebration are $12.

World's Best Commercials 1995 is a hilarious compilation of the world's most bizarre commercial filmmaking sorted into categories (Food and Drink, Travel and Entertainment). 11:15 p.m. Saturday, February 1st (C3) 120'. Influenced by the expressionist film classics as well as the lunatic tales of Georges Melies and the sci-fi serials of the Thirties, Walter Feistle's The Human Bomb take a journey back to the future. Little Rolf is supposed to be propelled into the fourth dimension as a living bomb, but he's a coward so experiment fails. (German with English subtitles).

In the spirit of 19th century Gothic tales and reminiscent of Edgar Allan Poe, James G. Duddelson's Morella takes bio-technology as its bogeyman and sets it in its own cold and drafty "haunted mansion"--a gene splicing research lab. Morella plays with I'm a Cat Man. 11:15 p.m. Monday, February 3rd (C3) 90'.
