Hudson Horror Show 13: 35mm Film Festival Announcement

"The Rules of Hudson Horror Show" Trailer:

Official press release:

Now in its sixth year, Hudson Horror Show continues to be the fastest growing retro horror film festival in New York. Fresh off another sold out triple feature at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers, NY, Hudson Horror Show returns to its stomping grounds, the South Hills Cinema 8 in Poughkeepsie on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 for Hudson Horror Show #13! This all day event will start around noon and run past midnight, showing six full length horror/cult movies, all off vintage 35mm film. That’s twelve hours of movie madness for only $35.00! Tickets are exclusively available at

While theater’s around the country are ditching 35mm film in favor of all digital film presentations, Hudson Horror Show recently retro-fitted one of the theaters at South Hills Cinema 8 from digital back to 35mm film! HHS #13 will be held on two screens, but one screen is already sold out, so get your tickets for the remaining theater while you can.

So what are showing in May? Hudson Horror has been threatening to show a blaxploitation movie for years and thanks to our friends at Vinegar Syndrome we are proud to present DOLEMITE!! Be prepared for the Rudy Ray Moore classic which is easily the most politically incorrect movie we’ve ever shown!!

You’ve seen the sequel, now it’s time for the original, Robert Englund’s star turn in 1984’s A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET! With John Saxon, Heather Langenkamp and Johnny Depp this is the movie that turned the slasher genre on its head and made Freddy Krueger a household name.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, HHS presents JAWS 2!!! The giant fish movie that many feels plays like a slasher flick, the shark sequel brings Bruce back to Amityville and the results are just as disastrous. JAWS 2 rarely gets any play theatrically and we are pleased to have this as part of our show.

Presented by The B-Movie Film Vault, we are excited to be screening NIGHTBREED! Clive Barker’s monster mash features more on screen creatures than any other movie ever filmed. The original theatrical cut from Clive Barker is still the most entertaining version of the movie out there and after six years we are pleased to finally have this at a Hudson Horror event.

On top of all that we will have not but TWO MYSTERY HORROR MOVIES!! Want to know what we are showing? Get your tickets and find out!

HHS is thrilled to announce that Louis R. Pisano who co-authored Jaws 2: The Making of the Hollywood Sequel (with Michael A. Smith) will be in attendance! Louis will have copies of this amazing fact filled Jaws book on hand and will be signing at the show.

Of course we’ll have vendors galore with DVD’s, shirts, toys and collector’s items; there will be door prizes, giveaways and so much more. That’s 12 hours of fun for only $35.00 a ticket! Each ticket sold comes with a free Hudson Horror Show/Leatherface sticker spoof sticker. Theater #6 is already sold out; get your tickets for the remaining theater now at! If you have any questions shoot us an email at We’ll see you at the South Hills Cinema 8 in Poughkeepsie on May 14th for Hudson Horror Show #13!

Good Night, My Sweet Prince! (Remembering Sir Christopher Lee)

I know I'm late, but I've been working and all that good jazz, but yeah, somebody deserves a tribute, since he's my favorite actor EVER! Ok, Gary Oldman is my favorite actor, overall, but my favorite horror actor, Mr. Lee!


Christopher Frank Carandini Lee was 6'5" of talented hunky hotness with his booming, sexy British accent, and his imposing stare.  Not only was he the best Dracula EVER..., but he was always "the bad guy", and I loved it!

Anybody who knows me knows I have an unhealthy obsession with Sir Christopher Frank Carandini Lee aka Dracula circa 1957-1976 (my favorite Dracula), who hots this series, (I mean hosts, Freudian slip), which you can watch online and check out all 26 episodes for free streaming online.

Sir Christopher Lee was actually knighted, which makes total sense, because he is the epitome of English hotness, even at his death at the age of 93.  He just turned 93 on May 27. He was knighted for his contributions to dramatic acting and charity in 2009 though he is also an operatic singer.  He even released a heavy metal album recently. 

You can watch the 100 Years of Horror series for free online by clicking here.

He has one of the sexiest voices and hottest British accents I have ever heard in my lifetime if not "the" hottest. He is particularly proud of his role in The Wicker Man, a British film in which he portrayed the ultra dignified and creepy Lord Summerisle in 1973.

The ever handsome and debonair, Mr. Lee starred in these killer films and TV shows!

The Curse of Frankenstein (1957)
The Mummy (1959)
Tales of Mystery & Imagination: The Black Cat
The Resident
Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
The Corpse Bride (2005)
Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Sleepy Hollow (1999)
Howling II
Dracula A.D. 1972
The Satanic Rites of Dracula
Scars of Dracula (1970)
Taste The Blood of Dracula (1970)
Count Dracula (1970)
Crypt of the Vampire (1964)
The City of The Dead (1960)
The House That Dripped Blood

And not to mention, well, yeah, actually I am mentioning it, and talking about it alot in this post, actually.  He is Lord Summerisle in the Wicker Man...the original one circa 1975, which you should watch if you have not.

The Wicker Man (1975), involves a British police officer visiting Summerisle, a remote British island to investigate the disappearance of a little girl. Pay attention, because there will be a festival going on (for May Day, I gather), and on this little island people celebrate just a little bit differently.   In fact, everything is a bit different there.  The pagan island of "Summerisle" was filmed around Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway.

Click here to watch In Search Of: Dracula, hosted by Christopher Lee in 1975.  I'll put up some other movies you can watch online for free to celebrate his memory.
