Like the unstoppable monster that just keeps coming back for sequels, the Hudson Horror Show is alive and coming for your very soul! The latest installment of the area’s best film festival for classic horror and exploitation films will be Hudson Horror 666 taking place at the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie NY on December 1, 2012. We will present six feature length films, all off vintage 35mm film prints, with tickets still only $26.00 in advance.
SWITCHBLADE SISTERS, from legendary director Jack Hill (FOXY BROWN, SPIDER BABY) tells the story of the Dagger Debs, a tough-as nails, inner-city gang of snarling girls, who are put to the test as they go up against their drug-dealing rivals. This simmering slice of exploitation is one of Quentin Tarrantino’s all time favorite movies.
THE DEVIL’S RAIN from director Robert Fuest (THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES) is one of the best examples of the “Satanic Panic” films of the 70’s. An all-star cast, rounded out by William Shatner, Tom Skerrit, Eddie Albert and future Scientologist John Travolta, tells the story of a 200 year old Satanic priest, (played by the legendary, late Ernest Borgnine), who leads a coven of ultra creepy, empty-eye socket, hooded slaves. Borgnine’s half ram, half man and the infamous “meltdown” scene makes this a horror classic, you don’t want to miss!
Following on the heels of our screening of Don Coscarelli’s creepy masterpiece, PHANTASM, we are striking back with the even more incredible PHANTASM 2! With a bigger budget, more gruesome effects, more action, and more of the Tall Man’s deadly silver balls, Phantasm 2 emerged as one of the best sequels of any horror franchise. Unfortunately not many caught PHANTASM 2 in its original theatrical run, so we are very proud to present an ultra rare screening of this horror classic.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better, reigning over our 12 to 13 hours of mind-bending cinema, will be the one and only RE-ANIMATOR! Stuart Gordon’s chunk blowing tribute to H.P. Lovecraft, ReAnimator, will cast its green glow over the screen of the Silver Cinema. Starring Jeffrey Combs as one of fandom’s most beloved mad scientists, RE-ANIMATOR has it all; gore galore, talking heads and the most insane oral sex scene ever committed to celluloid, Hudson Horror is proud to present this rare screening of the unrated version of RE-ANIMATOR.
On top off all that, in celebration of our 6th show and our third year of film programming, we present a 6th bonus mystery movie. That’s five movies for the price of six! Six full length features for only $26.00! What will the mystery movie be? You’ll want to be at Silver Cinemas on December 1st to find out!
