SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK


The 666th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon
AT THE DREXEL THEATER (2254 E. MAIN ST., COLUMBUS, OHIO)
NOON, OCTOBER 18 - NOON OCTOBER 19

As we announced at this weekend's fantabulous 31st Annual Ohio Science Fiction Marathon, we've booked the first six titles for this fall's 666th Annual SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, the Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon (October 18-19 at the Drexel.) We're already wildly excited, so just imagine what we'll try to cook up between now and then. The titles so far are:

This year’s film lineup includes:

  • A brand spankin' new 2K DCP restoration of Werner Herzog's lush, atmospheric remake of NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE featuring the luminous Isabelle Adjani and Klaus Kinski as everyone's favorite fang-toothed vampire.
  • Another Horror Marathon first with a 2K DCP screening of James Whale's creepy and humorous, "why are those pants running down the street" Universal classic THE INVISIBLE MAN!
  • Christopher Lee, Edward Woodward and the gorgeous Britt Ekland in the critically acclaimed Final Cut of Robin Hardy's stone cold Brit cult classic THE WICKER MAN (in paganistic 2K DCP)!
  • Kubrick! King! Nicholson! Duvall! Redrum! Penderecki! Carlos! Faked moon landings? Revisit the Overlook Hotel once again in THE SHINING (in 2K DCP)!
  • A rare 35mm screening of the absolutely bizarro gem THE MANITOU with an all-star cast of Tony Curtis, Susan Strasberg, Stella Stevens, and Burgess Meredith.
  • And last, but certainly not least, is Barbara Crampton in Adam Wingard's superior home invasion shocker YOU'RE NEXT (in 2K DCP)! This one had great buzz coming out of the 2011 festival circuit, and it is a tremendous exercise in suspense and raw, bone-chilling terror.

More info and films on their way in the next few months. Keep yer eyes on this site for all the latest!

IT'S OVER FOR THIS YEAR!

The cinelycanthropic monster that is SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK was beaten to death by Claude Rains's silver handled wolf beating stick. Or maybe it just finally fell asleep for a long deserved nap. Either way, it now lays dormant for another year. But be warned: the Wolfsbane will bloom again, and the full moon will return!

SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK


The 5th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon
AT THE DREXEL THEATER (2254 E. MAIN ST., COLUMBUS, OHIO)
NOON, OCTOBER 26 - NOON OCTOBER 27

Once again, the annual terror tradition, the place where your nightmares come true, the celebration of cinematic excess is back for another fright-filled rotation of the planet. And for the first time since 1994, the 24-Hour Horror and Science Fiction Marathons are back under the same roof! There's no more room in Hell, so the dead will walk the Drexel!

As part of this year’s fearful festivities, we’re thrilled to announce the resurrection of the Drexel's 35mm projector, as we expand our viewing palate to include the phantasmagoric delights of both film and digital offerings!

And what a splatterific slate of offerings we have! This year’s film lineup features:

  • Lon Chaney, Bela Lugosi and Claude Rains in a 2K DCP screening of the 1941 Universal Studios classic THE WOLF MAN!
  • A rare 35mm screening of Dario Argento’s shattering masterpiece of atmospheric horror SUSPIRIA!
  • Max von Sydow, Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller and (of course) Linda Blair in a 40th Anniversary 2K DCP screening of William Friedkin’s boundary smashing modern classic THE EXORCIST!
  • The haunting, dreamlike cult classic PHANTASM (in 35mm)!
  • The ultimate Aztec lizard monster attacks New York experience with a 35mm screening of Larry Cohen’s Q: THE WINGED SERPENT!
  • The bizarre feline frenzy of NIGHT OF A 1000 CATS (in 35mm)!
  • Tony Todd as the titular man of your nightmares in a 35mm screening of Clive Barker’s CANDYMAN!
  • Roddy McDowell and William Ragsdale hunting suave bloodsucker Chris Sarandon in a 2K DCP screening of the modern vampire classic FRIGHT NIGHT!
  • Heavy metal and Satanism run amok in the 1986 campfest TRICK OR TREAT (in 35mm)!
  • Rob Zombie’s stunning, psychedelic horror freakout THE LORDS OF SALEM (in 2K DCP)!
  • The Joss Whedon-penned, ultimate spam in a cabin horror/satire THE CABIN IN THE WOODS (in 2K DCP)!

In addition to this splatterific slate of films, one or two premieres may be added or substituted into the lineup. READ MORE...
