Halloween 2019 LA Film Guide

Keep checking this guide as we'll update it with the latest special screenings, Q&A's and just plain weird showings you should see this Halloween.

Oh, look at guide to all things horror to watch on the big screen. There's going to be a lot, this is LA.

Beyond Fest 2019
Sept 25-Oct 8
The Egyptian Theater
6712 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
$, Free screenings

Some of the highlights in our book include the West Coat Premieres of JoJo Rabbit, Parasite, Color Out Of Space with good ol' Nicholas Cage, The Lodge, Swallow and Little Monsters. We're getting the LA premiere of Memory: The Origins of Alien, an in-depth look inside perhaps the best sci-fi horror film. And we're even getting the bloody version of Tammy and the T-Rex. This line-up will give any cinephile a reason to live still with so many live action Disney films coming out.

Oh, and Joe Bob Briggs is in town to explain how Rednecks saved the movies. The only thing missing is really that Lighthouse movie, but, hey, this is a huge line-up.

For the more hardcore horror fan there's a Tom Atkins Tom-A-Thon and Evil Dead Re-Imagined with a live band playing the music.

A number of the films remain free screenings, sadly in the smaller 90-seat theater, but still free.

Saturday, Oct 12, 2pm
Dynasty Typewriter
2511 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90057
Most horror marathons contain five or six movies, tops -- which equals a half-dozen bloody finales, three or four twist endings and a rad premise or two. How about one with OVER TWENTY different horror stories, one after another? Our dark secret: the “horror anthology” film, in which several shorts -- often with different casts and directors -- are bundled under one umbrella. At “Reels From The Crypt”, we’ll enjoy a parade of several anthologies to equal one gruesome, mammoth cinematic centipede of terror.

Plus, we start with a community potluck. Stuff like chips and drinks are not.
