ABCs-2When Drafthouse Films released the twisted horror short anthology The ABC’s Of Death two years ago, it was an anarchistic free-for-all where the enlisted filmmakers were all in unknown territory like the wild west. Some of them went for juvenile humor, others wanted to find out how fast they could gross out their audience to the point of puking in the aisles and a couple, like D is for Dogfight and Q is for Quack, that were creative segments that really stood out from the herd.

Demon'sRook-box-02It may be new, but Tribeca Film’s The Demon’s Rook looks like a lost flick from the midnight horror heyday of the 1980’s, when you could watch practical effects ooze from the tube late into the night.

DawnoftheDead-box-02“When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.” Zombie fans can watch Ken Foree utter this immortal line on the big screen now that 1978’s Dawn of the Dead is headlining next year’s April Ghouls Drive-In Monster-Rama’s Saturday night lineup.
