Two weeks. 12 movies. Four venues. Many, many bumps, jumps, frights, spooks and scares. That's Kristian Fletcher's Halloween 2017 Movie Program, with the cult movie buff going all out in honour of the most unsettling time of the year.
It might've been easier to list what's not playing between October 13 and 31, given that all of the horror classics are covered: Friday the 13th on Friday the 13th, Re-Animator, Slumber Party Massacre, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Nosferatu, Evil Dead... they're all on the bill. Also on the lineup is the return of Fletcher's Roaring Twenties Cinema program with live piano accompaniment, a night of Halloween-themed music videos and a Halloween dance party, should you be after some scary variety.
Gracing screens at New Farm Cinemas, the New Globe, Metro Arts' Lumen Room and Ipswich's Studio 188, many of the movies screen as double, triple and even quadruple features, with prices ranging from $13.50 to $21.50. And while any evening in the program offers an ace night out, October 27's pair of Night of the Living Dead and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a must — not only because they're such iconic flicks, but to pay tribute to the recently dearly departed George A. Romero and Tobe Hooper.
