On Saturday October 12 The Arkham Film Festival presents our Euro Horror Marathon featuring our tribute to director Lucio Fulci! You get six movies in one day all on 35mm and all Euro Horror. So far we have three classic Lucio Fulci films confirmed and we will be announcing the other three titles in the coming weeks.

Film Screening Schedule

11:45am - Doors Open

12:00pm – Opening Intro

12:15pm – The Horrible Doctor Hitchcock
The year is 1885, and necrophiliac Dr. Hitchcock likes to drug his wife for sexual funeral games. One day he accidentally administers an overdose and kills her. He leaves his home shattered. Several years later he remarries and returns. Discovering that his still beloved first wife is alive but insane and prematurely aged, he plans to use the blood of his new bride to rejuvenate and heal her.
(Come out early since our day will start with this excellent example of Italian Gothic Horror presented in a very rare but unfortunately redish print.)

2:00pm – Burial Ground (Plus Trailers)
A professor opens a crypt and reanimates rotten zombies. The zombies attack a jet-set-group which is celebrating a party in a villa nearby...
(I know we showed this film not too long ago, but it was popular and we felt we should show it again to make up for some technical issues during the previous screening of Burial Ground.)

4:00pm – Man From Deep River
A photographer in the rain forest is captured by wild natives and after months of living with them, he marries the chief's daughter and helps protect the village from a vicious cannibal tribe.

6:00pm – House By The Cemetery (Plus Trailers)
A New York Doctor moves his family to a Massachusetts home to continue a colleagues’ research only to uncover a horrible secret.

8:00pm – The Gates Of Hell (Plus Trailers)
A reporter and a psychic race to close the Gates of Hell after the suicide of a clergyman caused them to open, allowing the dead to rise from the grave.

10:00pm – The Beyond (plus Trailers)
A young woman inherits an old hotel in Louisiana where after a series of supernatural 'accidents', she learns that the building was built over one of the entrances to Hell.

This all day marathon will feature all films being screened from 35mm prints and vintage trailer shows. You can see all six films for only $30 or if you want to only see the final double feature of the night (starting at 8:00pm) the cost of admission will be $12.
