*Looks like there getting help from Delusion

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings some their most terrifying horror films to life when HORROR REWIND arrives in Downtown Los Angeles the weekend of Friday the 13th. Taking place over the course of three nights, this immersive experience is produced by The Great Company in collaboration with the creators of premiere interactive horror theater Delusion.

In a secluded corner of the Arts District of Los Angeles, a deranged horror movie super fan, has created a living, breathing installation in homage to his four favorite films (THE FLY, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, 28 DAYS LATER and CARRIE). In tribute to these films, he has trapped innocent civilians inside and transformed them into demented and deformed monsters, forced to live-out his most terrifying celluloid nightmares.

For those who make it out alive, forget what your mother told you and stop by the ominous van parked outside. There you’ll be able to feed your own macabre obsessions and purchase any of 19 brand new Blu-rays featuring collectible packaging cover designs by acclaimed digital artist Orlando Arocena.  Limited edition posters of Arocena’s work will also be available as a gift with purchase while supplies last.

Fans can also purchase the full line-up of the Halloween faceplates from Arocena here:

The first original screenplay by horror master Stephen King, a tribute to the E.C. Comics thriller comics of the 1950s, was the basis of this 1982 film. The movie was his much-anticipated collaboration with Night of the Living Dead director, and King inspiration, George A. Romero. The film, like an issue of any great E.C. comics publication such as Tales from the Crypt (story collections that dared young and budding fright-comics aficionados to look at the page with stories that compelled them to keep their sweaty palms moving), is made of five vignettes featured then up-and-coming stars such as Ted Danson, Bonnie Bedelia, Ed Harris, horror make-up effect expert and occasional Romero actor Tom Savini. And finally, in this compilation of giant hissing cockroaches, curses and severed heads, Stephen King himself in his first big screen role.

Soon after sound took hold in the movie industry, Hollywood studios experimented with ways to attract Spanish-speaking audiences. Using Latin-American actors, technicians and directors, they shot Spanish-language versions of their films on the same sets. Notable among these alternate versions is this stylish adaptation of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel. Directed by George Melford, Drácula was filmed at night during the production of the 1931 English-language version that starred Bela Lugosi. The Spanish-language version features Carlos Villar as the ancient vampire and Mexican-born actress Lupita Tovar as Eva, the target of his bloodthirsty affections.
