EVENT UPDATE: Hudson Horror Show is BACK! Lineup Includes Mad Max, The Burning, Maniac and Lady Terminator

The movie festival that even modern technology could not kill, Hudson Horror Show, is back from the grave and hungry for your soul! Hudson Horror Show IX, will be at the Empire South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, NY on Saturday August 9th, 2014. This is the theater we have been at for the last five years which is formerly known as the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8. Now celebrating our fifth anniversary we will present six movies (for the price of five) all off of vintage 35mm film. It’s been a long time and oh, we have such sights to show you…

From Director William Lustig we present one of the most brutal and unflinching horror films of all time, MANIAC! You will be amazed at Joe Spinell’s riveting dual performance as both a slimy and sadistic killer and a suave ladies man!
By now I really should have written that damn song. You know the one I sing whenever Hudson Horror Show announces their lineup. I get giddy. I actually have a Ramones style song that I actively sing out loud. No shit. "Oooo Baby I wanna go. To the Hudson Horror Show". It's pretty much Palisades Park as covered by the Ramones. Pretty much. One day I'll record it, and then you can understand better my enthusiasm. 

So the line up is insanely good. Mad Max for the post-apocs. Maniac for the splatter nuts. The Burning for folks who like to see Jason Alexander with hair (more hair). Lady Terminator for folks who know how to laugh in a theater while staring at boobs. PLUS two, Two, TWO! Mystery movies. Let us not forget Hudson Horror Show's ability to create special memories with its mystery movies. One of them was House by the Cemetery. Then of course there's the one we shall not speak of (hush hush). It was fantastic. I've seen The Burning and Lady Terminator projected and can assure you these are must-watch-with-a-crowd features. 

My previous experience with Hudson Horror Shows have been splendid. Each one better than the last. The ones I have missed (which has only been for extreme circumstances like the birth of my child) have been regrets (even though my kid is damn cute). 

So you can buy tickets now and from what I understand they are moving faster than ever. Buy em. Come out to the show. See me. Buy shit from the vendors (who are eclectic and have such a cool variety of stuff). Support a theater that would allow for a 35mm event and meet friends.

Also, Poughkeepsie is the hometown of Edward D. Wood Jr. So you can try to find his birth home.

Full release with details on how to pick up your tickets, the lineup and how to get more info.

Ooooo baby I wanna go... to the Hudson Horror Show! See... I'm singing it. I'm singing it! 

Full release:

Hudson Horror goes post apocalyptic! Before you see the reboot/sequel, join us for a 35th Anniversary screening of the original MAD MAX! They say people don't believe in heroes anymore, in Poughkeepsie, we’re gonna give em back their heroes!! Sugar tits!

We really dig slashers and are overjoyed to present the early 80’s classic THE BURNING! While our beloved Cropsey does all of the killing, the true star of the film is special effects maestro, Tom Savini. Savini’s glorious gore work was heavily cut to get an “R” rating in America, but we will be screening the uncut international version with all of the juicy bits intact!

What would HHS be without some foreign film insanity? You may need to wear tinfoil on your head to prevent your brain from melting from the madness that is LADY TERMINATOR!! Presented by the B Movie Film Vault, this incomprehensible mess of a movie is a note for note rip off of the Schwarzenegger sci-fi classic which needs to be seen to be believed!

The only thing better than one mystery movie is two! As a thank you for five years of patronage, HHS#9 will screen two mystery movies, so that is six movies in total, for the price of five. What will this gruesome twosome be? Get a ticket for Hudson Horror Show #9 and find out!!
