Long time fans of the site know that we have been both fans of and big supporters of the semi-annual 35mm Horror Film festival known as the Hudson Horror Show. Over the years we've seen the festival grow in size an popularity, easily outpacing this little website and getting traction at larger places like Dread Central (don't sue) and Fangoria. But becoming the largest most popular 35mm website in the Hudson Valley area hasn't caused the Errol and the guys to rest on their laurels. Festival after festival they consistently out do themselves, and this coming incarnation is certainly no exception.
The latest Hudson Horror Show will be held simultaneously on two different screens and has already sold one theater out, and tickets are going fast for the remaining theater, so time is of the essence if you are thinking of purchasing. Head over to hudsonhorror.com asap to grab your tickets. Now we could waste our time trying to be all cute and re-write the festival announcement, or we could be lazy and just cut and paste it below...so take a gander at the press release below and bask in the awesomeness that is this spring's 13th Hudson Horror Show.
"So what are showing in May? Hudson Horror has been threatening to show a blaxploitation movie for years and thanks to our friends at Vinegar Syndrome we are proud to present DOLEMITE!! Be prepared for the Rudy Ray Moore classic which is easily the most politically incorrect movie we’ve ever shown!!
You’ve seen the sequel, now it’s time for the original, Robert Englund’s star turn in 1984’s A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! With John Saxon, Heather Langenkamp and Johnny Depp this is the movie that turned the slasher genre on its head and made Freddy Krueger a household name.
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, HHS presents JAWS 2!!! The giant fish movie that many feels plays like a slasher flick, the shark sequel brings Bruce back to Amityville and the results are just as disastrous. JAWS 2 rarely gets any play theatrically and we are pleased to have this as part of our show.
Presented by The B-Movie Film Vault, we are excited to be screening NIGHTBREED! Clive Barker’s monster mash features more on screen creatures than any other movie ever filmed. The original theatrical cut from Clive Barker is still the most entertaining version of the movie out there and after six years we are pleased to finally have this at a Hudson Horror event.
On top of all that we will have not but TWO MYSTERY HORROR MOVIES!! Want to know what we are showing? Get your tickets and find out!
HHS is thrilled to announce that Louis R. Pisano who co-authored Jaws 2: The Making of the Hollywood Sequel (with Michael A. Smith) will be in attendance! Louis will have copies of this amazing fact filled Jaws book on hand and will be signing at the show.
Of course we’ll have vendors galore with DVD’s, shirts, toys and collector’s items; there will be door prizes, giveaways and so much more. That’s 12 hours of fun for only $35.00 a ticket! Each ticket sold comes with a free Hudson Horror Show/Leatherface sticker spoof sticker. Theater #6 is already sold out; get your tickets for the remaining theater now at www.hudsonhorror.com!"
