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.
