Six Back-To-Back Films!
1982, Orion Pictures, 104 min. Dir. Damiano Damiani.
This hit prequel to THE AMITYVILLE HORROR was loosely inspired by a real-life mass murder that took place in the Long Island town in 1974. The Montelli family’s dream home turns out to be a nightmare - built on an Indian burial ground, an evil spirit resides in the house, and eventually takes possession of oldest boy Sonny. Scarier than the original, with Burt Young’s (of ROCKY fame) turn as the family’s abusive father and Lalo Schifrin’s soundtrack ratcheting up the tension.

1977, Dimension Pictures, 97 min. Dir. John 'Bud' Cardos.
Horrorthon vet William Shatner stars as a veterinarian who sounds the first note of alarm when animals begin dying from spider venom; soon the entire populace of Verde Valley, Ariziona is under attack from tarantulas. A low-budget but highly entertaining revenge-of-nature tale, made with thousands of real spiders.

1986, 20th Century Fox, 100 min. Dir. David Cronenberg.
This new version of the 1958 sci-fi hit isn’t just a remake but a complete reimagining, with director David Cronenberg mixing in his own sensibilities about organic life and its startling mutability. Teletransporter inventor Seth Brundle (Jeff Goldblum) inadvertently mixes his genes with a house fly’s when he decides to use himself as guinea pig. His future as a human being, including his romance with science writer Veronica (Geena Davis), changes forever as he begins a slow slide into a gooey half-man/half-insect, complete with superpowers and messianic delusions of grandeur. Chris Walas and Stephen Dupuis won Oscars in 1987 for Best Make-Up.

1989, JGM Enterprises, 84 min. Dir. Douglas Grossman.
“The teachers are tough … but their exams are murder.” A biology teacher (Maureen Mooney) is tormented by four students - who have no idea that the woman has a homicidal past.

1977, Universal, 98 min. Dir. Elliott Silverstein.
Wildly-deranged shocker about a mysterious black car given to mowing down anyone in its path. It soon dawns on desert town sheriff James Brolin that the homicidal car has no driver and may, in fact, be a satanic entity! One of our favorite guilty pleasures from the 1970s. With John Marley, Ronny Cox, R.G. Armstrong.

1977, Universal, 92 min. Dir. Michael Winner.
In this creepy adaptation of Jeffrey Konvitz’s horror best-seller, a troubled model (Cristina Raines) moves into a New York apartment building that gives new meaning to the phrase “neighbors from Hell.” The all-star cast includes Ava Gardner, Burgess Meredith, John Carradine and Christopher Walken.

Special Horrorthon prices: General $20, Student/Senior $18, Members $15 - includes all-night snacks and coffee.
No vouchers accepted for this or any other specially-priced program. | All films screen in 35mm.
