The first monthly meeting of The Arkham Film Society featuring a screening of GHOSTHOUSE!

Thursday May 31st
7pm doors – 8pm movie
95 Empire Black Box
95 Empire Street, Providence

The Arkham Film Society and Malachi’s CafĂ© present a rare screening of one of our favorite late 80’s Euro Horror films GHOSTHOUSE, directed by none other than Umberto Lenzi (Cannibal Ferox, Nightmare City). GHOSTHOUSE is about a young couple who receive eerie messages on their HAM radio and track them to a haunted house and truly features everything including the kitchen sink. Not to mention the fact that the exteriors for said haunted house were shot at the same Massachusetts house featured in Lucio Fulci’s House By The Cemetery.

As an added bonus we will be screening of THE LUST MURDERS, a teaser made to promote an as yet unmade feature by David Marchand and featuring Sylvia Collatina who stares in Lucio Fulci’s House by The Cemetery. This short will be shown before GHOSTHOUSE. For more info go to

A note about this screening. As you may have noticed we are holding this event at a new location, we will still be holding our 35mm screenings at the Granoff Center but we are now also holding smaller digital screenings at the 95 Empire Black Box. These smaller digital screenings will act as our “monthly meetings” of the Arkham Film Society and will give us the opportunity to showcase a mixture of newer independent films and older films too obscure for us to feature in large screenings, and at a lower admission price as well. These screenings will also function as an opportunity for local horror and cult film fans to meet up and discuss films and will also feature the occasional vendor. Please let us know what you think about our “monthly meeting” plan and be sure to make recommendations of films or themes you would like to see us program.
