The anticipation was palpable as the Aero Theater hosted the official first screening of Osgood Perkins' latest film, "Longlegs," on Friday night, May 31st. The evening was marked by a significant surprise when filmmaker Osgood Perkins himself appeared, accompanied by none other than the film's star, Nicolas Cage, for a special Q&A session following the screening.

While the reactions didn’t quite reach the fervor of the unexpected screening of "In A Violent Nature" (we're still trying to confirm the identity of the audience member who vomited during that one), "Longlegs" elicited some notable responses. Reports suggest that several attendees were moved to tears during the viewing. The big question remains whether those tears were a result of sheer terror or disappointment with the film's quality.

Fans and critics alike will have the opportunity to form their own opinions when "Longlegs" officially hits theaters on July 12th. Until then, the buzz surrounding this screening and the unexpected presence of Perkins and Cage will surely keep the film at the forefront of genre enthusiasts' minds.
