About the films:
Friday, June 12th:
EVIL DEAD (1981)– The world may not have been quite ready for the sheer audaciousness of this low-budget, amateur film production, but in the last couple decades, this film — along with it’s first sequel — ranks as one of the most popular — if not the most popular — horror films ever made among fans. No amount of rip-offs or reboots will ever rival it. It’s the ultimate cabin in the woods horror movie. It’s unrelenting and inspired. It’s always great… and always better on the big screen! New 35mm print.
ZOMBIE (1979)– The granddaddy of Italian gut-munching living dead movies is back to bite, tear and smear maggoty slime all over the Mahoning’s enormous CinemaScope movie screen! A woman searching for her father leads to a small Caribbean island infected by a voodoo curse of walking cannibalistic death! It may have been inspired by DAWN OF THE DEAD, but the show-stopping gore, putrescent make up effects and overall queasy atmosphere of Lucio Fulci’s undead classic has often been imitated, but never duplicated. Remember: in one of the most singularly inspired moments in horror film history, a zombie takes on a shark in this movie!
Saturday, June 13th:
EVIL DEAD (1981)– In case you missed it Friday night, or just want to witness Ash’s torment by the undead once more before it goes, Sam Raimi’s modern horror classic returns for an encore experience in grueling terror!
PIECES (1982)– You don’t have to go Texas for a chainsaw massacre! This movie certainly proves the aforementioned statement. It is what you think it is! Not only does PIECES give one the impression that it was put together by total lunatics, but it’s also one of the most dazzlingly stupid horror movies ever made, which makes it one of the most entertaining for fans who like their horror with large reserves of the gory stuff! If you’ve seen it, you know it’s worth seeing again at the drive-in! If ever never seen it, what are you waiting for?
