NYC! Catch the 12-hour 35mm horror marathon the day after Halloween!Movies/TV,News Michael Gingold
Even when October 31 is past, things will be scary in Manhattan. Anthology Film Archives (32 2nd Avenue), in conjunction with Outcast Cinema, is hosting an all-day festival of classic fright flicks on film this Saturday, November 1.
The Day of the Dead, 12-Hour, Day-After-Halloween, Horror Movie Marathon begins at noon and runs until midnight, showcasing seven rarely screened horror features from the ’50s through the early ’80s (some no longer available on video), all on 35mm. The titles are being kept secret, though the graphic seen above being used to promote the screenings offers a pretty strong clue, and the official description promises “…a little-seen Canadian slasher film! A nature-run-amok masterpiece! A Mexican horror matinee! British anthology terror! Satanic death cults! Lesbian vampires! And a Hollywood-star-studded mindblower that must be seen to be believed. From giant chickens to severed hands, from Peter Cushing to William Shatner, this horror marathon has something for everyone,” also including trailers, with snacks available in the lobby. Tickets for the whole show are $30, and can be pre-ordered here; see more info here and at the marathon’s Facebook page.
