SLASH-O-RAMA! An All-’80s, All-Slasher, All-Nighter!June 17, 2017 10:46 pm Anne Evans
A gaggle of nubile, screaming teens! A deranged, bloodthirsty Santa Claus! The ultimate cinematic boogeyman! Yes, they’ll all be there at 10pm, Saturday August 19th at the Drexel Theater (2254 E. Main St.) for SLASH-O-RAMA, a shock-drenched all-‘80s, all-slasher, all-nighter! In honor of one of the most memorable decades of horror, we’ve re-christened our annual SHOCK-O-RAMA Horror Marathon kickoff event and filled it with enough knife-wielding homicidal maniacs to keep you nightmare juices flowing long after the final reel! This all-night excursion into day-glo terror includes:
-Wes Craven’s iconic classic A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST., the birthplace of the legendary man of your worst dreams, Freddy Krueger!
-The most notorious slasher film of the era, the ultra-sleazy killer Santa epic SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT (in glorious 35mm!)
-Scream Queen Brinke Stevens in Amy Holden Jones’s feminist slasher send-up SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE!
-The pre-eminent backward-masking, Satanic panic slasher classic TRICK OR TREAT (in glorious 35mm!)
-The gore-soaked Canadian revenge opus MY BLOODY VALENTINE
-The EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT of the film lineup for this fall’s 9th Annual SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK 24-Hour Horror Marathon (October 14-15)!
-A mammoth History of ‘80s Horror 35mm trailer show throughout the evening!
-Win prizes and glory in our ‘80s Horror Costume Contest!
-Two free Drexel tickets and two free popcorn coupons to all who survive the entire night!
