It’s that time of the year again! It’s time for Doctor Gash’s favorite all-day film festival, the Hudson Horror Show. This is the ninth edition of the bi-annual event, and the line-up looks fantastic.
With screenings of 35mm prints of Maniac, Mad Max and an uncut version of The Burning, as well as several other films, moviegoers get 12-plus hours of entertainment for under $30. Not to mention you’ll get to peruse an entire lobby full of vendors of hard to find horror items.
And there will be giveaways as well. Even yours truly, Doctor Gash, will be there in his usual spot just before the final movie of the night giving away a load of horror swag!
So if you’re anywhere near Poughkeepsie (that includes you, NYC horror fans!) get your Hudson Horror Show IX tickets now. It will sell out! And don’t forget to check out the hilarious Hudson Horror Show “Rules” video below, featuring clips from some of your favorite horror movies!
From the Press Release
The movie festival that even modern technology could not kill, Hudson Horror Show, is back from the grave and hungry for your soul! Hudson Horror Show IX will be at the Empire South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, NY, on Saturday, August 9, 2014. This is the same theater we have been in for the last five years (formerly known as the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8). Now celebrating our fifth anniversary, we will present six movies (for the price of five), all off of vintage 35mm film. Itâ€™s been a long time, and oh, we have such sights to show you…
From director William Lustig we present one of the most brutal and unflinching horror films of all time, Maniac! You will be amazed at Joe Spinellâ€™s riveting dual performance as both a slimy and sadistic killer and a suave ladies’ man!
Hudson Horror goes post-apocalyptic! Before you see the reboot/sequel, join us for a 35th Anniversary screening of the original Mad Max! They say people don’t believe in heroes anymore; in Poughkeepsie weâ€™re gonna give em back their heroes! Sugar tits!
We really dig slashers and are overjoyed to present the early 80â€™s classic The Burning! While our beloved Cropsey does all of the killing, the true star of the film is special effects maestro Tom Savini. Saviniâ€™s glorious gore work was heavily cut to get an â€œRâ€ rating in America, but we will be screening the uncut international version with all of the juicy bits intact!
What would HHS be without some foreign film insanity? You may need to wear tinfoil on your head to prevent your brain from melting from the madness that is Lady Terminator!! Presented by the B Movie Film Vault, this incomprehensible mess of a movie is a note-for-note ripoff of the Schwarzenegger sci-fi classic which needs to be seen to be believed!
The only thing better than one mystery movie is two! As a thank you for five years of patronage, HHS IX will screen two mystery movies, so that is six movies in total for the price of five. What will this gruesome twosome be? Get a ticket for Hudson Horror Show IX and find out!!
Our last show was a record-setting advance sell-out, and tickets for this show are on sale now! Donâ€™t miss it; get your tickets now! Advance tickets are just $26.00. If any tickets remain the day of show, they will be available for $30.00, cash only. But donâ€™t count on it. As always weâ€™ll have vendors selling toys, DVDâ€™s, t-shirts, and all other merchandise.
