Dr. Creep, that seminal ghoul of Dayton, will be hosting the 14th Annual Horrorama Movie Festival at the Englewood Cinemas at 320 W. National Road near K Mart in Englewood, Ohio on Friday Oct. 29th. This horror movie festival will benefit Dr Creep’s health care fund and Breast Cancer Research. Doors open around 6 PM and the films kick off around 6:30 PM and last until around 4 AM on Saturday morning. Tickets are $11 in advance or $13 the day of the show.
The schedule of films features “Evil Dead II – Dead by Dawn”, the crazy sequel to the original “Evil Dead”, the original “Hills Have Eyes” – Wes Craven’s startling story of cannibalistic mutants, the little known but amazingly trippy 1974 film “Satan’s Children” aka “The Asylum of Satan” and ends with the grizzly 1982 Italian horror film “Pieces”. Also screenings are trailers and short films. Currently Horrorama is accepting short horror films as part of the first Horrorama Short Film Contest (see Horrorama Dayton on Face Book for more information).
For the last 14 years, Horrorama has raised thousands of dollars for charity. Horrorama sponsors are always needed. In previous years sponsors have included Bookery Fantasy, Foy’s Halloween Shop, Troma Pictures of New York and even Pulp Fiction’s director Quentin Tarantino, himself.
Horrorama is not just a passive movie watching event, every year Horrorama features a costume contest as well as other contests such as a “zombie walking” and ‘screaming” contests.
