There are two types of horror movies: the cheaply-produced, teen scream-a-thons that Hollywood has been churning out over the last decade or so, and the classic horror films from classic horror auteurs. For over a decade, the Horrorama film festival has been serving up the latter, and will continue its annual celluloid celebration of ghoulishly gruesome gore on Friday, Oct. 29 at Englewood Cinemas.
Four frightening features are lined up for Horrorama 2010: Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead II – Dead By Dawn”, Wes Craven’s “The Hills Have Eyes”, “The Asylum of Satan”and the Italian film “Pieces”, which “Hostel” director Eli Roth hails as one of his favorite horror films of all time.
New this year is the Horrorama Short Film Festival, a collection of original film shorts submitted from film makers across the country. Henrique Couto’s “Slay Ride”, Rachel Deacon’s ” A Fever and A River” and Andrew Shearer’s “Half Full” are a handful of the featured short films.
Additionally, costume, screaming and “zombie walking” contests (with prizes) will be held and are sure to keep horror fans shrieking throughout the night.
The doors open around 6 PM, with the film screenings starting at 6:30. Tickets are $11 in advance or $13 the day of the show. All of the proceeds of the 14th Annual Horrorama Film Festival will benefit Dr Creep’s (Barry Hobart) health care fund and The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
Stay tuned to DaytonMostMetro.com as we’ll have a quick rundown of the all-time favorite horror films of event organizers Andy Copp, Rick Martin and Matt Brassfield.
