Just when you thought we couldn’t top last year’s fest, along comes the biggest and most splatter-filled event yet…The Colonial Theatre’s Italian All-Night Splatterfest V: The Re-Splattering! Once again, were serving up FIVE of the most outlandish and entertaining Italian horror movies ever made: hilarious cult favorite Troll 2, off-the-wall reanimated corpse comedy Cemetery Man, influential murder-mystery What Have You Done to Solange?, bonkers slasher film Pieces and Lucio Fulci’s immortal classic Zombie! The evening will include trailers, prizes, posters, t-shirts, lapel pins, and, as a special added bonus, our second SplatterFEAST provided by our awesome sponsor Shorty’s Sunflower Cafe and Truckstop.
