A Nite to Dismember

A Nite to Dismember


Join Nitehawk and hosts SAM ZIMMERMAN from Fangoria and the theater’s own KRIS KING on Halloween night (10pm until 8am) as we show five horror cinema classics that each touch upon well-loved themes: the werewolf, the witch, the vampire, the slasher, and the zombie.

Forget trick-or-treating, spend the nite with us!

FILMS (in order of screening)…

American Werewolf in London (John Landis, 1981). DCP.
A backpacking trip through England gets hairy when one friend gets killed by a werewolf while the other turns into one. With amazing special effects and slight comedic undertones, this is John Landis’ at his horror best. Beware the moors!

Burn Witch Burn (Sidney Hayers, 1962). 35mm.
A college professor’s wife dabblings into magic and witchcraft are enacted to protect him from his intellectual colleagues. He doesn’t believe it at first but then the devil becomes all too real in this underrated 1960s horror film.

Fright Night (Tom Holland, 1985). DCP.
A vampire moves into a suburban neighborhood and the only people who notice are the kids next door (and those he’s killing). Fright Night is a late-night movie adventure that has heart…and Chris Sarandon’s dad sweater.

The Burning (Tony Maylam, 1981). 35mm.
Ah, the camp slasher movie is always a delight. Featuring “Cropsy” and a bunch of “before they were star actors” like Helen Hunt, Jason Alexander, and Fisher Stevens (with a script written by Harvey Weinstein), The Burning has all the boobs and blood you could want.

Dawn of the Dead (George Romero, 1978). Digital.
The quintessential horror film on capitalism and patriarchy (our own zombie existence). Four people flee the ongoing zombie outbreak into a shopping mall center where things are fine at first but, as Romero always give us, people are the ones who should be feared the most.
