Scary Movies is back with an upped deadly dosage of hair-raising premieres and classics. Join us for Ben Wheatley’s genre-crossing Kill List and the first New York showings of Ti West’s supernatural caper The Innkeepers, Scott Leberecht’s fresh take on vampirism Midnight Son, and the deliciously grotesque multiple-director omnibus The Theatre Bizarre, as well as Mariano Baino’s 1993 atmospheric chiller Dark Waters.

Plus, a trio of feline frights, including the North American premiere of the brand-new K-Horror The Cat, a rare showing of the 1969 treat Eye of the Cat, and, to kick off a Halloween dedicated to the Father of Gothic Horror himself, Edgar Allan Poe, we will screen Stuart Gordon’s The Black Cat. Gordon’s Masters of Horror season 2 episode will be preceded by the Corman/Price gem House of Usher, and followed by a special live performance of Nevermore, Jeffrey Combs’s one-man Poe show, directed by Stuart Gordon. It’s the first-ever staging in NYC—and hopefully not the last.

Combs and Gordon will also be on hand to introduce a screening of their gore classic Re-Animator. And last but certainly not least are two masterpieces of the occult and the supernatural: The Seventh Victim and Poltergeist.
