If you’re anything like us, one of your most awaited parts of First Friday is the monthly Fright Night movie showings at Zoetropolis. Mike from Mr. Suit picks out a lost favorite that can’t be streamed anywhere online (legally, that is) and puts it on the big screen. Favorites in the past few months have included crowd pleasers like “Sleepaway Camp,” “My Bloody Valentine” and most recently, John Carpenter’s classic “Army of Darkness.” Since October is the (un)holy month for horror, Mr. Suit has unveiled next month’s feature and it’s a doozy: a double-feature of both “Creepshow” movies.
Considered classics in the canon of horror anthology, the movies each featured the winning combination of George Romero and Stephen King spinning spooky, yet comedic yarns. The casts of the shorts are a who’s who, in that other than stars like Ted Danson and Leslie Nielson, you are literally left asking “who?” Regardless, along with “Black Sabbath” and “Trick ‘r Treat,” you’ll be hard-pressed to find a pair of horror anthologies on the big screen anywhere near here. The whole thing kicks off at 8 p.m., Oct. 7 at Zoetropolis. Tickets are $15.
