As the nights turn brisk and the shadows let loose their creatures, join us for ‘A Nightmare on Bridge Street 3’ (The Colonial Theatre’s Halloween Marathon). This year’s selection is two frightfully funny and horrific titles that deliver a cinematic experience that must be experienced with an audience. There will be some additional surprises too. Don’t hold back on this groovy evening.
Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn
(Sam Raimi, United States, 1987, 1h 24min, R, 35mm)
Synopsis: The second of three films in the Evil Dead series is part horror, part comedy, with Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell) once again battling horrifying demons at a secluded cabin in the woods. After discovering an audiotape left by a college professor that contains voices reading from the Book of the Dead, Ash’s girlfriend Linda (Denise Bixler) becomes possessed by evil spirits that are awakened by the voices on the tape. Ash soon discovers there is no escaping the woods. The 35mm print is courtesy of Exhumed Films.
The Cabin in the Woods
(Drew Goddard, United States, 2011, 1h 35min, R, DCP)
Synopsis: When five college friends (Kristen Connolly, Chris Hemsworth, Anna Hutchison, Fran Kranz, Jesse Williams) arrive at a remote forest cabin for a little vacation, little do they expect the horrors that await them. One by one, the youths fall victim to backwoods zombies, but there is another factor at play. Two scientists (Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford) are manipulating the ghoulish goings-on, but even as the body count rises, there is yet more at work than meets the eye.
