One of the coolest upstate New York horror events is at it again. The Hudson Horror Show will be presenting its fifth event on May 19th. The entire line-up has now been announced, and one word describes the Hudson Horror Show V films… classic!

Hudson Horror Show is being held once again at the Silver Cinema in Pougkeepsie, NY. You can get more info and purchase tickets on the Hudson Horror Show website. Read on for all the details!

From the Press Release
On Saturday, May 19th, 2012, the hallowed grounds of the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 will once again showcase the greatest classic horror film festival in the Hudson Valley, Hudson Horror Show V! Our fifth 12-hour movie festival will feature five full length classic genre films along with shorts and drive-in style trailers, all off rare 35mm film prints!

Our December to Dismember 2011 show was a sell-out with people having to be seated in our “reserved for staff seats.” Don’t miss out; grab your tickets now! This is our third year of shows, and ticket prices are still only $26.00 in advance via PayPal. Advance ticket holders save money and will be admitted first. If any tickets remain, they will be available at the door on the day of the show for $30.00, cash only.

Our Frankenstein-like monster of a line-up is now complete! Doors open at noon that day, and our “opening act” will be a mash-up of two of the greatest movie studios of all time as Hammer Films and the Shaw Brothers collide in Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires! This film, also know as The Seven Brothers Meets Dracula, mixes Gothic horror with, well, kung fu. It’s kind of like putting your peanut butter in my chocolate; who knew they would taste so good together?

We’ll have our semi-traditional “Mystery Movie” in the line-up, and that could be just about anything at this point. Perhaps some blaxploitation? How about a good old fashioned rape/revenge flick? Maybe some more giant monsters? Our lips are sealed until show time, but we are sure the mystery movie will be anything but a disappointment.

Hudson Horror V will then push on full steam ahead with our triple axe attack triple headliner! Our zombie movie for this show will be an extremely rare screening of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead. Unfortunately this amazing film was barely seen in theaters upon its original theatrical run in 1985, and it’s had even fewer screenings since. We are proud to unearth this zombie classic one more time.

Headliner number two will be a movie that has been constantly requested by Hudson Horror fans, Phantasm! With dwarf zombies, crazy bugs, killer spheres and, of course, “The Tall Man,” this nightmarish masterpiece will definitely make you want to sleep with the lights on.

Our third and final headliner of this triple threat will be none other than the incredibly influential slasher flick, the original, Friday the 13th! This film, originally released in 1980, was a watershed horror release and kickstarted the slasher craze that took Hollywood by storm for many years to come. Perhaps the biggest star of the film isn’t Jason Voorhees, but Tom Savini’s realistic and gruesome special effects. These effects were unfortunately toned down in 1980 so the producers could secure an “R” rating. However, we’ve been lucky enough to obtain a print that has the best parts intact! At long last, Hudson Horror presents the UNCUT version of the original Friday the 13th off 35mm film!

We will have the usual shorts, drive-in trailers, vendors, giveaways, trivia questions and nonsense that make Hudson Horror so much fun. We’ll have just a few vendor spots for HHV; if you are interested in selling or promoting your wares, or if you just have questions regarding our show, visit the Hudson Horror Show website.

Will Director Andrew Stanton Return for STRANGER THINGS 3?

Published

on

Monday we brought you the killer news that the third season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things had begun filming and today we have more updates!

First off, the new season will run 8-episodes with producer Shawn Levy telling Collider Stranger Things 3 will be back down to the original season’s 8-episode run, following season two’s 10-episodes.

Levy also let us know if Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) will be back in the director’s chair this season…and it doesn’t look like it… Weak.

No, you know what,” Levy said. “We had some schedule issues trying to figure out how to bring Andrew back, because we were beyond thrilled with him as a human being and his episodes. So the only answer I can give you today is it’s not Stanton, though we very much hope to keep him in the director club of Stranger Things as we move on to other seasons.”

Stanton is one of my favorite directors so this news kinda bums me out. What do you think? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Strangers Things seasons 1 & 2 are currently streaming on Netflix.

Death Line:
When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasence of Halloween) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets for fresh victims… and a new mate.

Deathdream:
In this shattering variation on The Monkey’s Paw, grief-stricken suburban parents (Academy Award nominees John Marley of The Godfather and Lynn Carlin of Faces) refuse to accept the news that their son, Andy (Richard Backus), has been killed in Vietnam. But when Andy returns home soon after, something may be horribly wrong: Andy is alive and well… or is he? Produced and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas) and written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged), Deathdream was one of the very first films to confront the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War. More than forty years later, it remains one of the most chilling horror films of all time.

However, this causes them to doubt their own memory, perceptions – and even their own sanity in this thriller in the vein of Disturbing Behavior and The Faculty.
