  • Horror Movies Playing Locally

    Nearly everyone's town or city does something once a year in which they show an older horror movie. For some, it doesn't happen until October. This is a place to post anything locally you know about and to draw attention to it for others in the area. To kick things off, I'll post about two locations in Nashville, TN.

    The first is the Belcourt Theatre and it's October lineup.

    FRI-SAT, OCT 5-6

    PSYCHO
    Alfred Hitchcock’s genre-defining slasher masterpiece about an on-the-lam embezzling secretary who happens upon a motel run by a very peculiar young man.

    EVIL DEAD 2
    FRI-SAT, OCT 5-6 AT MIDNIGHT
    EVIL DEAD 2
    The lone survivor of an onslaught of flesh-possessing spirits is left to clean up the mess with the only tools he has on hand: a chainsaw and a shotgun. Groovy!

    HALLOWEEN
    FRI-SAT, OCT 5-6 AT MIDNIGHT
    HALLOWEEN
    The night HE came home… An escaped mental patient dons a mask and stalks the small town of Haddonfield on the 15th anniversary of his sister’s murder.

    ALICE, SWEET ALICE
    SAT-SUN, OCT 6-7
    ALICE, SWEET ALICE
    When a young girl (Brooke Shields) is brutally murdered during her first communion, her disturbed and withdrawn older sister (Paula E. Sheppard) becomes the main suspect in this criminally underrated, twisty Hitchcock riff by director Alfred Sole.

    Peripheral Visions: MANIAC
    TUE, OCT 9 AT THE BELCOURT
    Peripheral Visions: MANIAC
    Director William Lustig’s infamous gritty masterpiece is the New York City-set tale of a deeply disturbed serial killer (Joe Spinell) who collects the scalps and clothes of his victims to outfit his ever-growing assortment of mannequins.

    CARNIVAL OF SOULS
    SAT-SUN, OCT 13-14
    CARNIVAL OF SOULS
    A tragic drag racing accident leaves a sole survivor, Mary Henry, who pulls up roots and takes a new job to distance herself from the traumatic event. Despite the move, she is haunted by visions of a man who seems to be beckoning her to an abandoned carnival at the edge of town.

    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
    SUN, OCT 14
    A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET
    One, Two, Freddy’s Coming For You… Nancy and her peers are having bad dreams. A clawed maniac with severe facial scarring haunts them in their sleep, picking them off one-by-one as the nightmare crosses into reality.

    THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES
    SAT-SUN, OCT 20-21
    THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES
    A doctor, scientist, organist and biblical scholar, Anton Phibes (Vincent Price) seeks revenge on the nine doctors he considers responsible for his wife's death.

    12 Hours of Terror
    SAT-SUN, OCT 20-21 | 10PM–10AM
    12 Hours of Terror
    The Belcourt’s annual all-night horror festival rises like a vampire from its tomb to bring you a non-stop, all-night buffet of the best in ghastly grotesqueries, macabre mayhem, and outrageous obscurities spanning the decades.

    THE HAUNTING
    SAT-SUN, OCT 27-28
    THE HAUNTING
    The stories you’ve heard about Hill House? They’re all true. For 90 years, it has stood alone, isolated, patient. Now a group of four find themselves in a trap of their own making; a nightmare maw of wood and stone and secrets, slowly closing around them.

    THE FOG
    SUN, OCT 28 + TUE, OCT 30
    THE FOG
    The last time the fog rolled in from sea, just off Spivey Point, six lives were lost, and the fledgling town of Antonio Bay was born from the wreckage of that tragedy. But now, 100 years later, the fog has returned, bringing with it something unspeakable.

    THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
    WED, OCT 31 AT 10:00PM | FRI-SAT, NOV 2-3 AT MIDNIGHT
    THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
    With live cast Little Morals! This fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock 'n' roll tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad and Janet after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter. 18+ only.
    I've caught Evil Dead II at a midnight showing there before and it was a blast. I'm almost considering breaking with tradition and catching The Fog before Halloween night in favor of seeing it on the big screen with a crowd. No word yet on what their 12 hours of straight horror will consist of.

    The second item of note is a local horror group that meets at the Full Moon Cineplex usually once a week. A co-worker brought this to my attention. Just a group of folks who love horror and science fiction films. Here's a link as to what they're watching up through October 26th. I'm sure some of these are projected DVDs / BDs as I doubt they have a print of Funeral Home. Still, very cool to sit and chill with fellow fans.
    People hyping up latest comic book movie to be the GOAT and I'm like "psshh, you guys must not have seen Bigfoot rip off a man's dick before in 1980's Night of the Demon."
