We’re serving up FIVE of the most outlandish and entertaining Italian horror movies ever made: Mario Bava’s colorful and chilling Blood and Black Lace, Dario Argento’s infamous The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Bruno Mattei’s evil convent classic The Guardians of Hell AKA The Other Hell, Lamberto Bava’s monsters-in-a-movie-theatre masterpiece Demons, and an amazing mystery title to be announced on the night of the event!

The evening will include trailers, prizes, posters, t-shirts, lapel pins, and, as a special added bonus, our third SplatterFEAST provided by our awesome sponsor Shorty’s Sunflower Cafe and Truckstop.

Blood and Black Lace – A masked killer with a sinister metal glove preys on Italy’s top fashion models in an effort to acquire a diary full of incriminating evidence. Special Bonus: We’re screening this film simultaneously in two theatres using two different formats: In Theatre #1, a 35mm film print of the American release; In Theatre #2, a digital 2K restoration of the original, uncut Italian release – so you can chose which version you prefer to watch!

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage – After a mysterious figure attacks a woman in his presence, an expatriate writer (Tony Musante) scours Rome to find the vicious assailant. 35mm Projection.

The Guardians of Hell AKA The Other Hell – Who or what is causing the weird disturbances at a creepy convent? Priest/paranormal investigator Father Valerio is about to find out! 35mm Projection.

Demons – Do you hate it when people talk or text in a movie theatre? That’s nothing compared to the crazy stuff going on at the Metropol. It seems that an infection is spreading through the movie house causing folks to turn into the titular creatures! 35mm Projection.

Mystery Movie – What is it? You’ll have to wait until the night of the show to find out! 35mm Projection.
