ERIC'S 35MM DOUBLE BILL BIRTHDAY BASH
NIGHT OF THE COMET (1984)
and ISLE OF THE DEAD (1945)
Plus ‘80s horror trailer reel!
It's Programming Director Eric Veillette's birthday, and he's inviting the Roncy community to see two of his favourite films - both on 35mm! After a trailer reel of 1980s horror flicks, the programme starts with Night of The Comet (1984, 95min. 14A), where Valley Girl meets Dawn of The Dead. When life is wiped out on earth, Regina & Samantha fight off cannibal zombies and a sinister group of scientists (led by Mary Woronov!). Our second feature, Val Lewton's Isle of the Dead (1945, 71min. PG), is a moody suspense flick featuring the great Boris Karloff, who is among several people quarantined on a Greek island during a plague. If that isn't enough worry, one of the people, a superstitious old peasant woman, suspects one young girl of being a vampiric demon.
Special Event. Double bill admission is $6 and donations to the Revue Film Society will also be accepted. Membership free event not applicable.
