*Start times are approximate*
7:00pm – Mandy
Nicholas Cage goes “Full Cage” as Red, a regular guy whose peaceful life in the Pacific Northwest with his true love Mandy is shattered by a sadistic hippie cult, catapulting him into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance, demonic bikers, hallucinogenic drugs and hand-forged battle axes! Director Panos Cosmatos’ utterly unique horror thriller Mandy is a mind-blowing freak-out led by a truly crazed Cage, and an experience that shouldn’t be missed on the big screen! (Dir. by Panos Cosmatos, 2018, USA/Belgium, 121 mins., Not Rated)
9:20pm – Creepshow / 35mm print!
Gather ‘round, kiddies, as Masters of Horror Stephen King and George A. Romero team up to scare the hell out of you with five tales of terror in this gruesome, ghoulish and giggle-inducing homage to the EC horror comics of the 1950s, featuring every nightmare you’ve ever had rolled into one unforgettably nasty package – zombies and monsters and cockroaches, oh my! (Dir. by George A. Romero, 1982, USA, 120 mins., Rated R)
11:30pm – Freaks/ 35mm print!
Dracula director Tod Browning’s 1932 gothic horror cult classic, detailing the lives of a tight-knit group of circus sideshow performers and the shocking revenge they’ll unleash upon those who cross them, still stands as one of the most controversial films in Hollywood history – an uncommonly empathetic and deeply unsettling film which effectively destroyed its director’s career yet retains every ounce of its curious power. “Gooble Gobble, we accept you, one of us!” (Dir. by Tod Browning, 1932, USA, 65 mins., Not Rated)
12:45am – A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge / 35mm print!
Freddy’s back and now he’s stalking the dreams of a teenaged boy named Jesse whose family has moved into the cursed house on Elm Street where the original nightmare took place, but this time, the creepy child-killer is looking to continue his reign of terror in the real world using Jesse’s body! The first sequel in the iconic Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Freddy’s Revenge has become a bona-fide cult classic thanks to its emphasis on horror rather than camp, and a homoerotic subtext that snaps harder than the towels in the film’s infamous locker room murder scene! (Dir. by Jack Sholder, 1985, USA, 87 mins., Rated R)
2:20am – Pieces / 35mm print!
The co-eds on a Boston college campus are literally falling to pieces when a chainsaw-wielding masked maniac decides to create a human jigsaw puzzle from their body parts in this wild and sleazy, mercifully unrated gore-fest filled with gratuitous violence, nudity and weirdness that stands as one of the sickest and most “out there” slashers of the ‘80s. As the ads promised, “Pieces … it’s exactly what you think it is!” (Dir. by Juan Piquer Simón, 1982, Spain, in English, 85 mins., Unrated)
3:50am – Final Destination
A group of teenagers narrowly escapes dying in a plane crash, and the grim reaper is royally pissed off because they’ve cheated “death’s design,” leading to a series of improbably violent and elaborate deaths for each them as they race to break the death chain in this fun and fast-paced horror flick that updated the “dead teen” genre for the new millennium, spawning a long-running franchise and widespread fear of the John Denver song, “Rocky Mountain High.” (Dir. by James Wong, 2000, USA, 98 mins., Rated R)
5:30am – Dawn of the Dead (2004)
Fast zombies are on the move and ready to take over the world in Zach Snyder’s blood-splattered, action-packed remake of Romero’s 1978 original, in which a ragtag group of survivors are going to stay holed-up in a mega Midwestern shopping mall until the zombie apocalypse has passed, or until they’ve all become zombie chow, whichever comes first! Starring Sarah Polley and Ving Rhames, and featuring cameos from three actors from the original film, this James Gunn-penned monster mash is a remake that actually works! (Dir. by Zach Snyder, 2004, USA, 101 mins., Rated R)
