U.S. | 96 mins | Dir. James Signorelli | 35mm Print Curtesy of the Academy Film Archive

From Hollywood to Las Vegas, from screaming gremlins to campy schtick to witchy graveyard warfare, ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK is busting at the seams with morbid and monstrous misadventure.


U.S. | 94 mins | Dir. Clive Barker | 35mm

An old family home holds untold mysteries... and horrors for Larry Cotton and his wife, Julia. Floorboards that rattle. Rooms that absorb blood. The heavy and haunting air of things long past and better left forgotten. All fueled by the fugitive spirit of Larry's brother, Frank - who hovers halfway between this world and the next, between extreme pleasure and excruciating pain. And between family devotion and deadly instinct for survival.

Slowly, the old family home begins to swallow the Cottons. And there is no escape... for secret alliances and murderous seductions have been made which will propel the Cotton family into the horrifying and shocking conclusion of HELLRAISER.

CREEPSHOW 2 (1987)

U.S. | 92 mins | Dir. Michael Gornick | 35mm

The masters of the macabre STEPHEN KING and GEORGE A. ROMERO welcome you to CREEPSHOW 2.

Join our old friend, the rotting creep himself, as he introduces his latest tales of horror. CREEPSHOW 2 - a deliciously wicked roller coaster ride that will plunge you into the heart of darkness and to the very brink of madness. Where modern day punks receive an evil dose of frontier justice. Where a harmless swimming party can turn into a horrific and bloody nightmare into a carnivorous terror.

Just when you thought it was safe to come back to the movies, along comes a fright-fest like CREEPSHOW 2.


U.S. | 85 mins | Dir. Jeff Burr | 35mm

A pair of college students driving coast to coast are lured off the main highway and on to a deserted Texas road. Here, they are stalked by LEATHERFACE and his demented family... a bizarre cannibalistic clan with blood on their minds. Their only chance for escape is a survivalist with enough firepower to blast LEATHERFACE and the rest of his grizzly predators to hell. A depraved shocker of intense terror from the gruesome beginning to the bloody finish.

HOUSE (1986)

U.S. | 95 mins | Dir. Steve Miner | 35mm Print Courtesy of the Academy Film Archive

Cast into a sinister otherworld, looking into the void of uncertain death, in the darkness, one man grapples with terrible unseen forces to save his sanity and his only son. HOUSE - the nightmare is real, the torture has returned and they have come to DESTROY Roger Cobb (William Katt)!

Cobb, long overdue for a new horror novel, begins work instead on a different project - a book based on his experiences in Vietnam. In part, the new project is a way of purging himself of the horrors that he himself experienced while there. But what begins as an ambitious fiction experiment soon deteriorates into a seething and terrifying reality.

Gripped by graphic nightmares, haunted by strange and threatening phenomena, and rattled by hideous visions, his sanity gives way to a neurotic frenzy. And only by protecting his son is he able to overcome the irrational madness and all-consuming fear of HOUSE.


U.S. | 67 mins | Dir. Herschell Gordon Lewis | 35mm

The story of Fuad Ramses, maniac Egyptian caterer, was the most tasteless film ever made when it was released in 1963, and was the first movie to use explicit gore. The only thing more appalling than the bloody special effects is the acting, especially the starring performance of Playmate Connie Mason, who established a standard for airhead bimbos that still holds up today.

THE STUFF (1985) [Rare Pre-Release Cut]

U.S. | 93 mins | Dir. Larry Cohen | 35mm Print Courtesy of the Academy Film Archive

It's smooth and creamy! It's delicious! It isn't filling! It's taken the country by storm... and it KILLS! It's THE STUFF!

The newest taste sensation is outselling ice cream two-to-one and merchants can't keep up with the voracious demand. In order to save their failing businesses, an ice cream industry saboteur and a junk food mogul attempt to uncover the manufacturing secrets of THE STUFF. They soon discover the horrifying truth about THE STUFF - that it is a living and all-consuming parasite that turns its hosts into walking zombies!

Threatened on all sides and trusting no one, they suddenly find themselves in the middle of a last-ditch effort to ward off this invasion of the brand-name body snatchers and to save the country from the grip of this insidious and monstrous dessert!

Plus a very special MYSTERY FEATURE!
