The Hudson Horror Show 8 is the eighth year of the popular horror and cult film festival. Once again, the show returns to the famed Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, New York on Saturday, November 16th 2013. The festival will feature five full length genre films in glorious 35MM starting at 1pm.
Hudson Horror Show 8 Films Shown
Escape from New York (1981)
Headliner #1 is the 1981 sci-fi/action classic Escape from New York. John Carpenter directed one of the most amazing genre casts ever featuring Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasance, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton, Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, Lee Van Cleef and of course Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken, who we all heard was dead.
The Thing (1982)
Headliner #2 is the 1982 horror/sci-fi thrill ride The Thing, directed by John Carpenter. Carpenter and Russell teamed up again for one of the scariest films ever made, which boasts the amazing creature and special effects from Rob Bottin. 30 years after both Carpenter classics were originally released, The Thing will be shown 35mm.
Invasion of the Bee Girls (1973)
Starring cult film icon William Smith (Red Dawn, Grave of the Vampire) and the beautiful Anitra Ford (Big Bird Cage), this sci-fi/horror/exploitation hybrid has the sexiest murdering space aliens ever seen. With a fun script written by Nicholas Meyer (who later wrote and directed Star Trek II and Star Trek VI), Invasion of the Bee Girls is one of the best “B” movies ever made.
Horror Express (1972)
Starring Christopher Lee, Telly Savalas and Peter Cushing this British/Spanish co-production mixes the Goth trappings of Hammer Studios with the blood and sexiness of Euro cult films. If you only see one movie with a frozen ape monster that shoots laser beams from his eyes and turns people into zombies while on a train, Horror Express is it!
No kidding around this time, it won’t be blaxploitation or a giant monster movie, it’s a full on horror movie. But you’ll have to come to the show to find out what it is!
