It's an explosion of terror to end the Summer and usher in the Halloween season! Join us in a mammoth dusk 'til dawn kickoff to this fall's 7th Annual SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK,
the Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon (October 17-18 at the Drexel Theater)! As part of this diabolical undertaking, you'll lay witness to:
- The EXCLUSIVE unveiling of the film lineup for this year's SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK!
- A cavalcade of 35mm Horror Trailer and Shorts!
- Three, count 'em, THREE horrific features, all in GLORIOUS 35mm! They include
-A 30th Anniversary screening of George A. Romero's cult classic DAY OF THE DEAD, featuring Lori Cardille leading a ragtag bunch of humanists against Joe Pilato's military thugs in an subterranean lair besieged by the undead, Tom Savini's landmark stomach-churning gore FX work, and Howard Sherman giving the greatest zombie performance in cinematic history!
-David Cronenberg's debut feature THEY CAME FROM WITHIN! A posh Montreal apartment complex is invaded by mutant parasites that unleash the carnal desires of the inhabitants in an orgy of lust and bloodshed. One Candian critic called it "crammed with blood, violence and depraved sex" and "the most repulsive movie I've ever seen." Which makes it perfect for our Nightmarathon faithful!
-John Carradine in the schlock-tastic erotica of VAMPIRE HOOKERS! Because John Carradine and sexy vampires are always a nice chaser for a night of unbridled terror.
Join us for the fun! Join us for the terror! Join us for SHOCK-O-RAMA, the beginning of our annual plunge into cinematic madness!!! And keep your eyes peeled for more info on the 7th Annual SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK on this website!!!
