We marked our calendars months ago, when the New Beverly Cinema first announced the date of this year’s Halloween horror marathon, which is presented in association with the Grindhouse Film Festival. Now they have finally let their public in on what films will be screening – an eclectic selection of rarely screened cult titles, most of which have not been seen on theatre screens in decades. All will be presented in 35mm prints.
Here are the titles listed in the official announcement:
