About the Film:
Saturday Night Rewind kicks off its October 2017 Fright Nights lineup with a truly creepy 35mm double-feature: Creepshow 1 and 2! Special 7 p.m. start time. $13 for both films (note: We will not be selling single film tickets).
About Creepshow (R; 120 min.): A compendium of five short but terrifying tales contained within a single full-length feature, this film conjures scares from traditional bogeymen and portents of doom. In one story, a monster escapes from its holding cell. Another focuses on a husband (Leslie Nielsen) with a creative way of getting back at his cheating wife. Other stories concern a rural man (Stephen King) and a visitor from outer space, and a homeowner (E.G. Marshall) with huge bug problems and a boozing corpse.
About Creepshow 2 (R; 92 min): This second horror anthology presents more eerie tales based on Stephen King stories. One episode finds a cigar-store Native American statue coming to life to avenge the death of the shop owner (George Kennedy) and his wife (Dorothy Lamour). Another features a group of teens menaced by a blob-like creature. The final installment follows a wealthy and callous woman (Lois Chiles) who hits a hitchhiker with her car and decides to flee the scene, but the victim isn't inclined to remain dead.
Saturday Night Rewind is a monthly 35mm film series presented by the Little Theatre and Fright-Rags.
