A DUSK TO DAWN ‘80s HORROR EXTRAVAGANZA!
AT THE DREXEL THEATER (2254 E. MAIN ST., COLUMBUS, OHIO)
STARTING AT 10 P.M. ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 18

This October marks the 10th Annual SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK and the 30th Anniversary of the Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon (dating back to the 1988 NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREXEL). We have all sorts of monstrous delights cooked up for you for this momentous celebration of cinematic excess, but to kick off Horror Marathon season, we present the 4th Annual SHOCK-O-RAMA, an all-night mini-Marathon to prepare you for the all the anniversary atrocities to come! And by popular demand, we’re marking 30 years of 24-Hour Horror Marathons with a tribute to the horror films of 1988! Featuring:

  • Chuck Russell’s splatterific remake of THE BLOB, a goopy special effects tour de force featuring a screenplay by Frank Darabont!
  • George A. Romero’s psychopathic simian psychological thriller MONKEY SHINES, in GLORIOUS 35MM!
  • Bill Pullman in THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW, Wes Craven’s chilling plunge into voodoo terror!
  • The NEW RESTORATION of Frank Henenlotter’s insane splatter comedy BRAIN DAMAGE!
  • The fan favorite horror comedy WAXWORK, starring GREMLINS’s Zack Galligan, TWIN PEAKS’s Dana Ashbrook, Patrick Macnee, David Warner, and John Rhys-Davies!

PLUS!

  • The EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT of the film lineup for SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, the 10th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon (Noon, Saturday October 13th - Noon, Sunday October 14th)!
  • An undead army of 35mm trailers and shorts!
  • Prize giveaways!
  • Two free Drexel passes and two popcorn coupons to all who survive the entire night!

IT'S OVER FOR THIS YEAR!

At approximately 12:19 pm on October 15th, SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK (the 9th, yes 9th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon) was stabbed with a wooden stake, burned alive in the desert sunset, and left for dead for another year. But fear not! The Horror Marathon will never die! Next October already beckons, and a full-scale resurrection is once again in order. A HUGE thanks to the incredible folks at the Drexel Theatre and all those behind the scenes who brought this cinematic monstrosity to life. Finger lickin' good!

CHILLS, THRILLS, AND KILLS GALORE!
