This Saturday October 22, 2016, at the historic (and newly renovated) Belcourt theater in Nashville, TN, the 6th annual Halloween event continues with another 12 hour marathon. The website describes it as a marathon of monsters, murderers, mad scientists, myths, mayhem, masked unknowns and mysteries that span the decades and most known exhibition formats.
The fun starts at 10pm - get there early to catch a performance by Nashville spooky rockers The Boo Dudes. This is a must-see event for horror fans in the Middle TN area. The Belcourt staff always does an amazing job, and I will be introducing one of the movies myself during the night, HENRY, PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER.
You can read a recap of last year's event here. It is always a total blast and endurance test of celluloid chills.
General Admission: $20/$15 for Belcourt members. Tickets are going fast, so grab yours early
Here's a shot of the crowd lined up around the corner last year waiting for the doors to open!
So what movies are they showing? Well, you'll have to show up to see! But here's what information the Belcourt has released so far:
Joe Dante's 1981 lyncanthropic masterpiece.
HENRY PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER
4K 30th-anniversary restoration of John McNaughton's unsettling horror-crime film.
THE PIT, 1981
"A perverted young boy whose teddy bear tells him to throw people in a pit full of monsters."
And here's what local paper THE NASHVILLE SCENE said about the rest of the night:
We can't reveal any of the four remaining titles, but The Belcourt has these little hints for us:
1. "A very rare international supernatural thriller that you'll totally lose your head over"
2. "An under-appreciated gem of '80s paranoia"
3. "A film in anaglyph 3-D"
4. "An eye-popping finale"
Seasonal Scene faves Boo Dudes will rise from the grave to play a set, and there will be a special guest appearance from local legend Dr. Gangrene. There's more — costume contest, giveaways, gimmicks — but by this point, I'm thinking you're already sold. Admission is $20, and $15 for Belcourt members. Get your hands on tickets at The Belcourt's site.
AGAIN, this is one you don't want to miss. Sat, Oct 22nd 10pm! See you there!
