We just keep making things cooler at DreadVision…
Every second Tuesday of the month, the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, Texas, gets together with Dread Central and shows you a movie you haven’t seen on the big screen, or haven’t seen for a long time.
This month it was Dog Soldiers, Neil Marshall’s kick-ass directorial debut that pits six British soldiers vs. an entire pack of extremely hungry lycanthropes. I describe it as Aliens with werewolves, and it’s just a hell of a good time.
I chose this title for July because of Dark Hour Haunted House‘s July show, Dog Days of Summer, which is their werewolf haunt. This weekend, Friday and Saturday, July 14th and 15th, the halls of Dark Hour will be ruled over by Baba Lupina, the wolf witch. Her hairy children will roam through the swamp, the graveyard, and the Coven Manor itself.
We made an arrangement with Baba Lupina to have one of her minions at the Alamo for DreadVision, and she obliged, as it would surely bring more vict…uh…visitors to the Manor this weekend for her whole clan to play with. The wolf in question even agreed to be part of this month’s Box of Dread Challenge before the show!
Below you can find photographic evidence of the mayhem caused by a big bloody werewolf roaming the halls of the theater, generally terrifying people who’d come to see Spider-Man and Despicable Me. The Drafthouse had up a “Homecoming” photo backdrop in honor of Spider-Man, and as you can see, some people decided to warp the universe and combine the two.
Next month we’ll be back with another DreadVision screening along with a twisted challenge as we go into cocaine-fueled madness with a master of horror and technological terror!
