Halloween 2020: Horror Movies In The First Week of October

EHEhehEhehheHEHEhe, looks like Halloween is still happening boils and ghouls. It may be movies, but that's plenty fun for horror fans.

POLTERGEIST & THE LOST BOYS Two Feature Halloween-O-Thon

Glendale, CA 91203
$23 – $37 

We kick off with POLTERGEIST (@ 7:15pm) directed by Tobe Hooper, story by/produced by Steven Spielberg. One of the strangest and most glorious horror movies to come out of the 1980’s, POLTERGEIST pulses with the weird tension between the two auteurs involved in the movie. 

Second, we go to the late 80’s where director Joel Schumacher embraces the “hair metal” aesthetic of the time to make THE LOST BOYS, a more hard core yet simultaneously funny look at two brothers’ encounters with an ultra-cool, party all the time, group of rebel delinquents who turn out to be vampires.

In a dystopian Turkey, the Government installs new networks throughout the country to monitor information. The installation goes wrong in a crumbling apartment complex and Mehmet, the building intendant, will have to confront the evil entity behind the inexplicable transmissions that threaten the residents. The Antenna is a horror film with political elements that stands as an allegory for the lack of the freedom of speech in today's Turkey.

 First up, the all-time horror classic, Tobe Hopper’s original THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Made in 1974 on a very low budget, this movie follows a group of (what else) sort of clueless young people as they stop off in the middle of rural Texas to explore a run down old house only to discover ANOTHER house behind it.

 We follow up with Don Coscarelli’s cult horror hit PHANTASM (another movie that launched a number of sequels). Coscarelli fully commits (as he would in all his subsequent movies) to be as weird and singular as possible. Here we follow two brothers whose investigation of their friend’s suspicious death leads them to a very strange mortuary. In that mortuary is “The Tall Man” a mortician determined to hide his secrets at all costs, including murdering trespassers with a really strange flying silver ball with daggers.

Tonight, we pair two fun, offbeat, singular horror-comedies that involve cars and horrific deaths. First up is Quentin Tarantino’s DEATH PROOF which we’ll be screening in its extended version.

 We follow this with Stephen King’s one and only movie he directed himself MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE. Scored entirely to AC/DC music, King essentially remakes Steven Spielberg’s DUEL as a contained horror movie mostly taking place at a remote gas station.
