First, good ‘ol Dan Halsted from Portland Grindhouse again brings some glorious disgusting flicks to the Hollywood Theatre with a Double-Fulci! Starting at 7:30pm on Tuesday:
HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY (1981) A terrifying tale of gore and sleaze! A professor moves his wife and creepy ass son into an old cursed house. It doesn’t take long before blood starts oozing from the walls and the son befriends the ghost of a little girl warning them to leave. The real horror though is the living, rotting corpse hiding in the basement, who needs to kill to survive. This is Lucio Fulci at his finest, meaning we’ll see decapitations, impalements, maggots, and the longest rabid bat attack in cinema history, all immersed in Fulci’s masterful atmosphere of terror.
Wait – Before we move on to the 2nd film in the Double Fulci Fright Fest… An intermission from Red Dead Redemption:
Got it? Good, get it! Back to Fulci…
ZOMBIE (1979) Fulci’s gut munching masterpiece about a doctor on a remote island whose experiments have caused the dead to return to life. A group of Americans visit the island in search of the doctor, and are drawn into a ferocious battle with the flesh eating walking dead. Backed by Fabio Frizzi’s synthesized soundtrack, zombies rise from the grave, humans are ruthlessly attacked, a zombie fights a shark, and all gory hell breaks loose! “We are going to EAT YOU!”
You can get your tickets at the door or at Grindhouse Film Fest.
