The Great Astor Spooktacular Halloween Movie Marathon 2019
Get ready for Halloween with an entire night of back-to-back horror films.
Historic Melbourne cinema The Astor is hosting its Great Astor Spooktacular again for 2019, and it's going big. This year, more than nine movies will be be shown in an all-night horror marathon — right in time for Halloween.
Directed by "Lucifer himself" and featuring a cast of "the hounds of hell", some of the films include the retro fun of Dawn of the Dead, The Slumber Party Massacre, A Nightmare on Elm Street and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre — plus 90s classic Scream, 2009 standout Drag Me to Hell and the suitably unnerving The House of the Devil. The historic cinema, known for its presentation of classics and cult films, is the perfect venue to settle in for the evening, clutch a big bucket of popcorn, and get spooked over and over and over again.
It all kicks off at 7pm on Saturday, October 26 and runs overnight. With a few dark and twisted flicks on the bill — and a few surprises — needless to say, this one isn't for the faint of heart.
