This year’s scream-inducing line-up (all start times are approximate):
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974, 83 min., rated R)
Tobe Hooper’s original, finger-licking-good terror masterpiece, the drive-in classic that forever changed the course of American horror! Watch as Leatherface and his crazy clan invite a gang of hapless travelers to a down-home barbeque dinner at which THEY’RE the main course!
STREET TRASH (1987, 91 min., Not Rated)
Thirsty winos are melting and exploding all over the streets of New York City … could it have something to do with that delicious new liquor called Tenafly Viper? Featuring a bevy of psychotic junkyard killers, dumb cops, trashy gals and liquefied body parts, this gloriously cracked bad taste classic is like a Herschell Gordon Lewis horror flick crossed with a John Waters comedy, with an extra helping of gut-churning goop poured on top.
CHILD’S PLAY (1988, 87 min., rated R)
In director Tom Holland’s original installment of the beloved horror franchise, everyone’s favorite pint-sized, homicidal rag doll, Chucky, proves that when it comes to delivering pure terror, big (and bloody) things very often come in small packages.
FROM BEYOND (1986, 86 min., rated R)
Stuart Gordon’s freaky follow-up to Re-Animator is a wild slice of Lovecraftian horror detailing the adventures of a nutty scientist and his slimy love affair with a gang of other-dimensional creatures. Starring Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton from Re-Animator, and Dawn of the Dead bad-ass Ken Foree!
SLEEPAWAY CAMP (1983, 84 min., rated R)
This gruesomely goofy summer camp slasher flick will drive a very-sharp knife (not to mention various other slicing-and-dicing implements) through your love of the great outdoors, before knocking you on your keister with one of the greatest shock endings of all-time! Oh, Angela!
DEAD AND BURIED (1981, 94 min., rated R)
From Dan O’Bannon, creator of Alien and Return of the Living Dead, comes this twisted tale of a quaint small town populated with corpses who just won’t stay dead … and buried! Featuring great gross-out gore effects by the legendary Stan Winston, and a seriously creepy performance by Jack Albertson (“Grandpa” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!) as the weird town mortician.
PIRANHA (1978, 94 min., rated R)
Joe Dante’s fishy fright fest, scripted by John Sayles, is a tasty Jaws rip-off swimming with squeamish scares, outrageous black humor and gallons of gore … not to mention a gaggle of hungry little beasties just itching to sink their teeth into a delicious cast of B-movie icons, including Barbara Steele and Paul Bartel!
