Magick, Mayhem, and Little Rubber Monsters

Presented by Movie Dumpster
35MM Screening


You can pray it’s not too late, but they’ll get you in the end! Witness a double feature of doom as we kick off the festivities with those toilet bowl-bound beasties known only as the Ghoulies (1984)! Then, in a terrifying tandem, we’re playing that Sacrifyx record backward and blowing open a tunnel to hell as we go through The Gate (1987)! Both films will be presented in glorious 35mm at the historic Colonial Theatre, complete with vendors, giveaways, and other surprises. Movie Dumpster implores you to prepare yourself for a night full of Magick, Mayhem, and of course, Little Rubber Monsters!



(Luca Bercovici, United States, 1984, 1h 21min, PG-13, 35mm)
Synopsis: A young man and his girlfriend move into an old mansion, where he becomes possessed by a desire to control ancient demons.

The Gate

(Tibor Takács, United States,  1987, 1h 25min, PG-13, 35mm)
When Al (Christa Denton) and Glenn’s (Stephen Dorff) parents (Deborah Grover, Scot Denton) leave town for the weekend, Al uses the opportunity to throw a party while little brother Glenn and his friend Terry (Louis Tripp) decide to explore a hole left by a tree removal service in the backyard. When unexplainable phenomena begin occurring, Terry — with the help of his extensive heavy-metal music collection — comes to the conclusion that he and Glenn have accidentally opened a gateway to hell.
