The Belcourt Theater's 12 Hours of Terror movie marathon crawls from the crypt again next Saturday, October 24th, for the 5th annual event.
This year's event promises more frightening features, although the Belcourt is playing coy about this year's lineup, offering only hints. Here's what they've teased so far:
Join us for 12 solid hours of quivering matter, cheap-o splatter, walking heads, the plastic dead, grisly ghosts and horrible hosts—not to mention the phantasmagorical rediscovery that's been blowing minds across the U.S.! All that, plus crazy antics, awesome vintage grindhouse trailers, live encounters with sinister forces, and the moment of truth where you the viewer must CHOOSE THE HORROR ABOUT TO UNFOLD—capped by one of the coolest scare-cinema finds you've never seen!
Interesting...! Out of curiosity, I decided to go back and make a list of all the films they showed at the fest over the years. The following list is pretty impressive!!
Night of the Creeps
Return of the Living Dead
THE BURNING - Noon
MESSIAH OF EVIL - 1:45 pm
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON - 3:25 pm
BAY OF BLOOD/TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE (Reazione a Catena) - 5:15 pm
