I’ve thought about it long and hard (that’s what she said?) and I’m not going to be able to make Hudson Horror Show V. Someday soon I’m going to write an article about being a parent, loving horror movies and how these two things can ultimately conflict. I can’t go to all the conventions. I can’t go to all the movie marathons. In my mind I’m still an 18 year old kid (maybe younger if you mention boobies), but I do have a few obligations outside of this horror-verse. This whole growing up thing is almost as hard as breaking up. That being said, Hudson Horror Show was one of my favorite marathons. I got to attend the third one and wrote it up HERE. Take a gander at the awesomeness.
I can assure you that this event has a nice flee market feel for the vendor area which is thoroughly enjoyable and ultimately personal. You really get to connect with fans in the lobby. They show a cavalcade of the best of the best of the best. I missed HHH IV due to the birth of my little baby, Ava. While she is the light of my life, I can tell you that I was a bit miffed to miss Silent Night, Deadly Night on the big screen in glorious 35mm. It’s true. Someday, I hope. The braggarts who have chided me for missing this event due to the recent birth of my baby girl suggested that I bring her to the show to which I responded with… Yes…wait… NO. Santa Claus should be fun before he’s campy and horrifying.
So this time around I can’t make it due to yet another familial obligation.
Horror Show I will surely miss you and your horror movie goodness. I will miss
the friends there. I will miss buying cheap back issues of my favorite horror
mags and used DVD’s. I ‘d like to think
that this would be the last time a scheduling conflict keeps me away from an
awesome event like this, but I’m certain it won’t be. I can already see Exhumed
Films’ 24 Hour Horror-thon on the horizon, the Dead Til Dawn Drive-In zombie
classic in and a all night Italian Splatter marathon
in the coming weeks. Will I attend? I sure hope so. Coxasackie, NY
But I didn’t start writing this to bitch about my own personal iniquities (yes I did). I’m writing this to tell you what’s going down in
, home of Ed Wood, and home to the Silver
Cinemas theater. Beware the curfew for those under 18 because the mall police
might slam you up against their cars and pretend their in high school again.
Without further adieu here’s the line up: Poughkeepsie, NY
HUDSON HORROR SHOW V (in association with Grindhouse Releasing)
DAY OF THE DEAD (Got Bub?)
PHANTASM (Got Boy?)
The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires (Got Blood?)
Friday the 13th (Got Uncut?)
MASSACRE MAFIA STYLE (Got Mystery Movie)
Today was the last day to buy tickets in advance which you most likely won’t get to do since this is hitting you late in the evening but try… HERE! $30 the day of the show. Saturday May 19th, 2012 (like the poster says).
Tune into my Facebook Page this weekend to listen to me complain about not being there. Maybe I’ll run my own marathon of five awesome movies, not in 35mm and brutally interrupted by diaper changes and late night feedings. I bitch with love and hope one day Ava and Bella love horror movies as much as do. Teach your children well, right?
