7:00pm: DAWN OF THE DEAD
“Dawn of the Dead is one of the best horror films ever made… It is gruesome, sickening, disgusting, violent, brutal and appalling. Nobody ever said art had to be in good taste.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth … and they’re heading straight for their local shopping mall in George A. Romero’s ground-breaking, gut-munching, side-splitting splatter satire of zombie-fied consumerism run amuck. A bona-fide undead horror classic! (Dir. by George A. Romero, 1978, USA, 127 mins., Not Rated) Digital
9:30pm: THE BURNING / Unrated UK Cut!
“One of the unexpected horror gems of the 1980s … it’s pretty damn nasty.” – Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
When the urban legend of Cropsey, the burned-face killer, becomes a terrifying reality for a group of sexed-up teenage summer campers, the woods are about to run red with gore (or is that just a spilled slushie?) in this gruesomely entertaining ‘80s slasher about a freak with an axe (actually, a big pair of hedge clippers) to grind! Featuring future stars Jason Alexander and Holly Hunter as clueless monster bait, this is the extra-gruesome, unrated UK version not seen in US theatres! (Dir. by Tony Malam, 1981, USA/Canada, 91 mins., Unrated) 35mm
11:10pm: A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET / 30th Anniversary!
“A fantastic horror film that still holds up resoundingly well today.” – Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
The teens on Elm Street are learning to sleep with one eye open in Wes Craven’s terrifyingly surreal shocker, the one-and-only original that started it all and introduced the world to everyone’s favorite boiler room bad guy, Freddy Krueger (not to mention Johnny Depp in his film debut)! 30 years after its original release, this one will still give you nightmares. One, two, Freddy’s coming for you … (Dir. by Wes Craven, 1984, USA, 91 mins., Rated R) 35mm
12:50am: YOU’RE NEXT
“You're Next is one of the most audience-gratifying horror films I've seen in quite a long time, rewarding viewers as much as it likes to screw with them.” – Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
When a ruthless gang of masked murderers crash the Davison Family’s party at an isolated house in the middle of nowhere (naturally), you just KNOW things are going to get real scary, real fast. But the mysterious killers might have a few surprises in store for them in this ultra-suspenseful, modern-day horror classic combining black humor and red goop in increasingly crazed proportions. (Dir. by Adam Wingard, 2011, USA, 95 mins., Rated R) Digital
2:30am: BODY MELT
“Body Melt is a fun gore-fest with some truly excellent set pieces that’ll keep you both disgusted and amused. Highly recommended.” – Ian Jane, DVD Review
A new health craze is sweeping the nation, and for those taking the mysterious dietary supplement called Vimuville, the pounds are just melting away – literally! – in this schlocky Aussie horror flick in the tradition of such gooey gore classics as Street Trash and Bad Taste. Nasty, wacky and hilariously gross, with lots of nudity, mutations, mucous, in-breeding, mad science, vomitus maximus, erectile eruption, cranial collapse and human rib removal, this is some seriously vile fun! (Dir. by Philip Brophy, 1993, Australia, 81 mins., Not Rated) Digital
4:00am: THE FUNHOUSE
"The Funhouse is an underrated gem, a mini-masterpiece of frights and atmosphere, and one of Tobe Hooper’s best.” – Dustin Putnam, Fright File
When a gang of thrill-seeking kids hit the local carnival and decide to spend the night hiding out inside The Funhouse, they’re going to get a lot more “fun” than they bargained for as deadly nookie, psycho carnies and a monster-on-the-loose make them all wish they’d just gone to the drive-in instead in Tobe Hooper’s creepy carnival fright-fest. (Dir. by Tobe Hooper, 1981, USA, 96 mins., Rated R) Digital
“As a prime example of bad-taste, low-budget, exploitation cinema gone mainstream, Grizzly is hard to beat. It really delivers the goods.” – Black Hole Reviews
Unsuspecting campers are not only losing their way in the woods, they’re also losing their arms, legs and heads when a very large, very hungry and very pissed off grizzly bear goes on a summer rampage in this entertaining and surprisingly gory ‘70s animals-gone-wild flick that promised “18 Feet of Gut-Crunching, Man-Eating Terror!” A Jaws with Claws exploitation hit from the director of The Manitou! (Dir. by William Girdler, 1976, USA, 91 mins., Rated PG) Digital
