DOUBLE FEATURE! It’s family-friendly scares this Friday the 13th with two eighties classics back-to-back, Gremlins (1984) and Creepshow (1982). See one for $9 or double your chills and see both for $18.
Don’t get him wet, keep him out of bright light, and never feed him after midnight.
Gremlins is a wildly original roller-coaster ride of hilarious mischief. One minute your hair will stand on end, the next you’ll hold your sides with laughter at the havoc these supposedly gentle furballs create when the rules surrounding their care and feeding are inadvertently broken one fateful Christmas. Written by Chris Columbus and directed by Joe Dante, Gremlins unleashes special effects that dazzle and enchant and merriment that lingers in the memory. And isn’t that “what superior popular moviemaking is all about” (Richard Corliss, Time).
Five creepy tales from horror master Stephen King are strung together by a framing story involving a young boy being punished by his father for reading the gruesome, titular comic book.
Father’s Day tells the tale of a family patriarch exacting beyond-the-grave revenge on the daughter who murdered him. In The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill, a Maine hayseed is overtaken by a meteor-based plant growth. A cuckolded husband exacts watery revenge on his cheating wife and her lover in Something to Tide You Over. A hairy beast in a box is used for nefarious purposes at a university in The Crate. Finally, in They’re Creeping Up on You, a wealthy, arrogant New Yorker with a fear of germs has a disturbing run-in with cockroaches during a blackout.
Watch out for Leslie Neilson, Ed Harris, Stephen King and Ted Danson – amongst many others – in the cast.
