HAPPY DEATH DAY
2017, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

SCREAM meets GROUNDHOG DAY in this darkly comedic slasher hit from Blumhouse Productions. University student Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, in a breakout performance) caps off her birthday by getting murdered – only to wake up and re-experience the day’s events. As the process repeats itself, Tree gathers clues to stop her killer and escape the endless loop. “A snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.


BLACULA
1972, Park Circus , 93 min, Dir: William Crain

When the charitable Prince Mamuwalde (William Marshall) travels through 18th century Transylvania, a fated run-in with the one-and-only Count Dracula damns him for all eternity. It isn’t until a century later, that he suddenly finds himself in 1970s Los Angeles, where he must balance his infatuation with a woman, whom he believes to be his wife reincarnate (Vonetta McGee), with an insatiable taste for blood. The first and perhaps most enduring Blaxploitation horror film of the early 1970s, BLACULA tells the tragic story of a good-natured man’s transformation into a blood-sucking undead killer.


SKINNER
1993, MPI/Severin Films, 90 min, Dir: Ivan Nagy

Ted Raimi (XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS) delivers an unnerving performance as psycho drifter Dennis Skinner, who wears flesh-suits that he slices from his victims, falls for a lonely young housewife (Ricki Lake of HAIRSPRAY fame), and is himself hunted by a horribly scarred survivor (Traci Lords, in an equally unhinged performance). Featuring the most intensely graphic scenes yet by KNB EFX Group (THE WALKING DEAD), this remains perhaps the most disturbing – and rarely seen – shocker of the 1990s.
