Directed by Joseph Zito. US. 1984. R. 1 hour 31 minutes. Paramount. 35mm.

If you thought that the seemingly unstoppable killer Jason Voorhees was finally stopped in Friday the 13th Part III, then you were wrong – dead wrong. Having recovered from his wounds in the previous film, Jason goes back to doing what he does best – terrorizing teens.

Halloween 3: Season of the Witch

Fri., October 20, 2017

Directed by Tommy Lee Wallace. US. 1982. R. 1 hour 38 minutes. Universal. Digital.

When co-creators John Carpenter and Debra Hill were approached to make another Halloween movie, they were very reluctant. They didn’t want to rehash the same plot over-and-over again, so they proposed a unique idea: create a series of stand-alone sequels that take place on Halloween – but do not involve Michael Myers. Serving as the producers (and uncredited writers), they hired director Tommy Lee Wallace and . . .

Lady in White

Fri., November 3, 2017

Directed by Frank LaLoggia. US. 1988. NR. 1 hour 53 minutes. MGM. 35mm.

In the annals of the most overlooked ‘80s horror movies, Lady in White tops the list. And that’s a shame because it’s one of the most original, heartfelt and sublimely scary horror movies ever made. Thanks to a couple of bullies, Frankie Scarlatti (Lukas Haas) finds himself trapped in his grade school cloakroom on Halloween night. While struggling to free himself, Frankie meets the ghost of a young . . .

The Shining

Fri., December 1, 2017

Directed by Stanley Kubrick. US. 1980. R. 2 hours 26 minutes. Warner. Digital.

Martin Scorsese calls it one of the scariest movies ever made. Stephen King declares it an abomination of his book. No matter which side of the hedge maze you fall on, everyone can agree that Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining is visually stunning, tremendously creepy and not quickly forgotten. Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson), an out-of-work teacher and alcoholic, takes a job as the winter caretaker at . . .
