Rob Zombie's HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES (2003)

[Description from back of VHS] Two young couples take a misguided tour onto the backroads of America in search of a local legend known as Dr. Satan. Lost and stranded, they set upon by a bizarre family of psychotics. Murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals are just a few of the 1000 horrors that await. (US, 89 mins, Dir. Rob Zombie, 35mm)

HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH (1982) [35th Anniversary Screening]

[Description from back of VHS] “Halloween III: Season of the Witch” is an entirely original new movie based on the idea of Halloween and using the title but otherwise having nothing in common with the previous Halloween films. This one stars Tom Atkins, Stacy Nelkin and Dan O’Herlihy in a story that features witchcraft, robots, and a diabolical plot to scare 50 million children to death! So put on your masks and get ready for a few hours of pure terror. Halloween is here again. (US, 98 mins, Dir. Tommy Lee Wallace, 35mm)


He's eternally cool, fatally smooth, and now he's back... with a vengeance! Blacula lives, and only the legendary Pam Grier has the power to deep-six his reign of terror. William Marshall is "magnificent" (Los Angeles Times) as the noble African prince Mamuwalde, cursed by Count Dracula and transformed against his will into a bloodthirsty fiend. It's the hair-raising sequel to the terrifying hit that stalked its undying claim to horror fame.

This time, its voodoo power versus vampire fury when the son of the late High Priestess, Willis (Richard Lawson), seeks revenge on the cultists who have choses his foster sister, Lisa (Grier), as their new leader. Hoping to curse Lisa, Willis unwittingly resurrects Blacula's earthly remains - and becomes his first victim! The body count escalates with a rash of bizarre murders that have the police baffled. Can Lisa exorcise the demon inside Blacula, or will he and his freaked-out army of undead slaves plague humanity with a legacy of fangs? (US, 93 min, Dir. Bob Kelljan, 35mm)


[Description from back of VHS] Norman Bates is back to normal, but Mother's off her rocker again. Anthony Perkins returns as the screen's most beloved psychopath and makes his directorial debut in this second sequel to Alfred Hitchcock's legendary thriller. Picking up where Psycho II left off, the Bates Motel is once again the site of some nasty doings as the rehabilitated Norman attempts to help a disturbed young woman and a guitar-playing drifter while trying to divert a nosy reporter's suspicions away from Mother. Suspense, terror and black comedy worthy of the master himself are in hearty supply in this the most shocking Psycho of them all. (US, 93 min, Dir. Anthony Perkins, 35mm)


[Description from back of VHS] "Horrific thrills abound in this grisly tale of a group of youngsters and their fatal fascination with a madman and his dolls.

A group of unsuspecting friends happen upon a novelty in the desert, SLAUSEN'S LOST OASIS, a curious and eerie roadside museum. This goldmine of decaying, but strangely life-like mannequins is run by Slausen (Chuck Conners), an eccentric, but seemingly harmless has-been. Slausen has one warning for the youngsters: Stay away from Davey, Slausen's reclusive and disturbed brother.

The youngsters' curiosity gets the best of them and they go exploring. The trap is sprung! Amidst flying objects, slamming doors, scarves that strangle on their own, empowered by some hidden force, the trap slowly closes in on the group. The "Creature" Davey and his army of murderous mannequins make quick and brutal work of the friends, until only one remains.
Incredible psychic powers are unleashed as all the dolls are brought to life in an attempt to bring a nightmarish end to the final victim in this, the most deadly TOURIST TRAP!" (US, 90 min, Dir. David Schmoeller, 35mm)


[Description from back of VHS] Baron Frankenstein is dead, right? That’s precisely what he wants folks to think. He’s had it up to here with a public that doesn’t appreciate the trouble a mad scientist goes through to snatch good body parts. To carry on his work, he holes up in a place where the possibilities are utterly maddening: a home for the criminally insane.
A hand here. A brain there. True to form, the Baron (Peter Cushing) keeps his gruesome creation (Davis Prowse, widely known for his later portrayals of Darth Vader) in stitches in this sixth and final frightfest in Hammer Films’ Frankenstein cycle. (UK, 93 mins, Dir Terence Fisher, 35mm)
