From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) & The Evil Dead (1981)
FROM DUSK TILL DAWN From Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez comes the ultimate rock n roll vampire movie…Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney star as convict brothers, who kidnap a preacher and his two kids (including Juliette Lewis–Natural Born Killers) and flees for the safety of a remote nightclub in Mexico. But once they arrive, they discover that the club is anything but a safe haven for criminals. Its bloodthirsty clientele forces the brothers to team up with their hostages in order to escape alive. THE EVIL DEAD (1981) Writer/Director SAM RAIMI’s relentless, gore-spattered debut is a landmark in horror cinema, a no-holds-barred onslaught of gruesome terror and nightmarish effects which has earned its rightful status as a legendary cult classic. Five college students travel to a remote cabin in the woods and unwittingly unleash a monstrous evil force hellbent on their total destruction…
Scream (1996) & Fright Night (1985)
SCREAM: 20th Anniversary screening: Wes Craven’s smash hit horror movie is a post-modern take on the slasher cycle of the late Seventies and early Eighties, which included the director’s own ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’. In the small American town of Woodsboro, a psychotic freak with a love of horror flicks murders teenager Casey Becker (Drew Barrymore). The killer then begins terrorising Casey’s classmate, Sidney Prescott (Neve Campbell), whose mother was murdered a year earlier. When Sidney encounters the stalker and escapes, her boyfriend Billy (Skeet Ulrich) is arrested. However, the phone calls and killings continue. FRIGHT NIGHT (’85): Meet Jerry Dandridge. He’s sweet, sexy, and he likes to sleep in late. You might think he’s the perfect neighbor. But before inviting Jerry in for a nightcap, there’s just one thing you should know. Jerry prefers his drinks warm, red and straight from the jugular! Only 17-year-old Charley Brewster knows Jerry’s bloodcurdling secret. When Charley can’t get anybody to believe him, he turns to TV horror host Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), who used to be the “Great Vampire Killer” of the movies. Can these mortals save Charley and his sweetheart Amy from the wrathful bloodsucker’s toothy embrace? If you love being scared, FRIGHT NIGHT…will give you the nightmare of your life.
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)
BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA: Francis Ford Coppola’s faithful retelling of the classic novel – When young lawyer Jonathan Harker (Keanu Reeves) is assigned to a gloomy village in the mists of eastern Europe he is captured and imprisoned by the undead vampire Dracula. Dracula, inspired by a photograph of Harker’s betrothed, Mina Murray, travels to London where he begins a reign of seduction and terror… DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS: In this sequel to ‘Dracula’ (1958), four English tourists are holidaying in the Carpathians when they meet the unconventional Father Sandor at an inn. He warns them to avoid the local castle if they value their lives, but the next day the quartet find themselves stranded in the mountains after their driver abandons them. When a driverless carriage arrives they board it, intending to travel to the nearest village. However, the carriage instead takes them to the very castle which Sandor warned them against, where they are welcomed by the sinister manservant of Count Dracula (Christopher Lee)…
Carrie (1976) and Christine (1983)
CARRIE (’76): Carrie (Sissy Spacek) is a gawky, unloved teenager whose awakening sexuality is at odds with her puritanical mother’s fanatical teachings. Physically abused at home and shunned at school, an unexpected Prom invitation seems to be Carrie’s first chance at happiness. But when the Prom night ends in a vicious practical joke, Carrie’s despair manifests itself in a fiery telekinetic revenge. Brian De Palma’s breakthrough psycho-sexual horror yarn is adapted from a Stephen King novel. CHRISTINE: John Carpenter brings Stephen King’s best-selling novel to life in this chilling thriller. She was born in Detroit … on an automobile assembly line. But she is no ordinary automobile. Deep within her chassis lives an unholy presence. She is CHRISTINE – a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon), who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek, rounded chrome-laden body. She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion and when outsiders seek to interfere, they become the victims of Christine’s horrifying wrath.
