SHOCK-O-RAMA presents a Dusk to Dawn David Cronenberg-a-thon

May 24 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

SHOCK-O-RAMA

It’s
The 5th Annual
SHOCK-O-RAMA!
10pm Saturday August 10th
at the Drexel Theatre (2254 E. Main St., Columbus, Ohio)

It’s no secret that the legendary David Cronenberg has long been a patron saint of our Mighty Marathon Empire. Now, to celebrate the 5th Annual SHOCK-O-RAMA (our annual kickoff to Horror Marathon and Halloween season), we present an all-night Cronenberg-a-thon in tribute to a career like no other! It’s a spine-tingling evening of transgressive terror, featuring:

-A rare 35mm screening of Cronenberg’s ultra-influential SHIVERS (a.k.a THEY CAME FROM WITHIN), starring Horror queen Barbara Steele, cult fave Lynn Lowry, and an army of sexual slug parasites invading an upscale Montreal apartment high-rise!

-Adult film icon Marilyn Chambers as the Typhoid Mary of the ’70s in the epidemic of madness that is RABID!

-Oliver Reed and Samantha Eggar in THE BROOD, Cronenberg’s most personal film and a disturbing dive into repressed rage and psychoplasmic fright!

-James Woods and Debbie Harry in the gruesome and prophetic media nightmare VIDEODROME!

-One of Christopher Walken’s greatest performances in the excellent adaptation of Stephen King’s THE DEAD ZONE!

PLUS!
-The EXCLUSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT of the film lineup for SHOCK AROUND THE CLOCK, the 11th Annual Ohio 24-Hour Horror Marathon (Noon, Saturday October 12th-Noon, Sunday October 13th.)
-An undead army of 35mm trailers and shorts!
-Prize giveaways!
-2 free Drexel Passes and 2 popcorn coupons for all who survive the entire night!

Tickets for SHOCK-O-RAMA are $20, and are on sale at the Drexel box office (2254 E. Main St.), Laughing Ogre Comics (4258 N. High St.-CASH ONLY)
