The Coolidge Corner Theatre’s 20th Annual Halloween Horror Marathon
— Limited to 50 tickets only —
A different kind of animal…
The Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Halloween Horror Marathon is changing into something horrifying—join us outdoors, on Halloween Night under a full Blood Moon in the Rocky Woods, for twelve straight hours of movies featuring horror’s ultimate lunatic; the Werewolf!
For our twentieth show, hundreds of horror fans from across New England will camp out overnight while watching some of the most lauded tales of lycanthropy. Beginning at 6pm on Saturday, October 31st until dawn…that is if you make it through the night!
The carnage commences with John Landis’ AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, followed by Joe Dante’s THE HOWLING! Both from 1981 and boasting the best practical werewolf transformations in horror history!
After these first two films, you’ll be moonstruck by another four throughout the night. As per Marathon tradition, the titles won’t be revealed until they hit the screen, but one thing is certain: there will be plenty of teeth, claws, curses, and silver bullets to keep you screaming for more!
Also featuring our costume contest, trailers from the Coolidge Crypt, and much more!
Campsites are available—movie tickets sold separately. Register with the Trustees directly by emailing email@example.com to reserve your site today!
About the Films
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON
American tourists David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) are savaged by an unidentified vicious animal whilst hiking on the Yorkshire Moors. David awakes in a London hospital to find his friend dead and his life in disarray. Retiring to the home of a beautiful nurse (Jenny Agutter) to recuperate, he soon experiences disturbing changes to his mind and body, undergoing a full-moon transformation that will unleash terror on the streets of the capital…
Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White (Dee Wallace) takes some much-needed time off. Hoping to conquer her inner demons, she heads for “the Colony, “, a secluded retreat where her new neighbors are just a tad too eager to make her feel at home. Also, there seems to be a bizarre link between her would-be attacker and this supposedly safe haven. And when, after nights of being tormented by savage shrieks and unearthly cries, Karen ventures into the forest to find answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life…but for her very soul.
