NIGHT OF THE LIVING ’80s: A NEW WAVE OF HORROR
Double Feature! Director Tom Holland In Person!
FRIGHT NIGHT / CHILD’S PLAY
Discussion between films with director Tom Holland.
30th Anniversary!

FRIGHT NIGHT
1985, Sony Repertory, 106 min, USA, Dir: Tom Holland

In this vampire favorite, Tom Holland creates a blend of true creepiness and ’80s horror movie fun. After seeing a coffin carried into the house next door, young Charley Brewster believes his neighbor (Chris Sarandon) is a vampire. Desperate to convince anyone, he enlists Roddy McDowall, who steals the show as the television vampire hunter who is truly a coward. Great visual effects by Richard Edlund.


CHILD'S PLAY
1988, MGM Repertory, 87 min, Dir: Tom Holland

“Andy Barclay has a new playmate who’s in no mood to play." Young Andy Barclay is thrilled to get the hottest new toy - until he learns his doll is possessed by the spirit of a psychotic criminal! Can Andy convince the adults in his life that "Chucky" (voiced by an exceptionally creepy Brad Dourif) is out to get him before it's too late? Chris Sarandon and Catherine Hicks star in this horror classic which spawned an entire Chucky franchise, and which does double duty as a shrewd satire on consumerism and its effect on children.


Screening format: DCP (FRIGHT NIGHT) and 35mm (CHILD'S PLAY)
