FILMS (in order of screening)…

EVIL DEAD II (Sam Raimi, 1987) – 35mm
A parody to director Sam Raimi’s original feature, Evil Dead II is a comedic take on a lone survivor (the estimable Bruce Campbell) and a group of strangers who fight the undead released after reading the Necronomicon.

Widely considered to be one of the best movie sequels in cinema, James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein introduces Dr. Pretorius who tries to get Dr. Frankenstein back into the human-making business in order to make a wife for the beloved Karloff monster.

FRIDAY THE 13TH: PART 2 (Steve Miner, 1981) – Digital
A new set irresponsible, sex-crazed camp counsellors are back at a camp near Crystal Lake and so is the killer…it’s not Mrs. Voorhees but the indestructible Jason!

DRACULA: PRINCE OF DARKNESS (Terence Fisher, 1966) - Digital
Though technically the third in the Hammer Dracula series, Dracula: Prince of Darkness is the second film featuring the iconic Christopher Lee as Dracula as he seduces a group of four unsuspecting castle visitors.

RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD (Dan O’Bannon, 1985) - Digital
The dead are back…Return of the Living Dead features a group of scientists who accidentally release poisonous gas that reanimates the dead, eventually turning most everyone into zombies who crave BRAINS!"
