Exclusive: Fulci, “C.H.U.D.” and More Make Up El Rey’s “MonstroCity Marathon”!


Fright fans might want to clear their calendars because things are going to get ugly at the El Rey Network this weekend. That’s right; FANGORIA has gotten the exclusive first look at the full line-up for El Rey’s MonstroCity Movie Marathon, which starts on Saturday, April 25th at 6:15 p.m. EST. And El Rey is not skimping on the gore either, with a truly bloody quartet of splattery creature features for your entertainment.

With a pair of Fulci features, an ‘80s camp classic and a fright flick written by El Rey head honcho Robert Rodriguez himself, here’s the line-up for the MonstroCity Marathon below:

SATURDAY, April 25th

Director: Eduardo Rodriguez
A journey that takes one man into the bowels of black magic in Mexico City

Director: Lucio Fulci
A reporter and a psychic race to close the Gates of Hell after the suicide of a clergyman caused them to open, allowing the dead to rise from the grave.

ZOMBIE (4:15PM EST & 12:30AM EST)
Director: Lucio Fulci
Strangers looking for a woman’s father arrive at a tropical island where a doctor desperately searches for the cause and cure of a recent epidemic of the undead.

C.H.U.D. (6:15PM EST & 2:30AM EST)
Director: Douglas Cheek
A bizarre series of murders in New York City seems to point toward the existence of a race of mutant cannibals living under the streets.
