Horror is back in Poughkeepsie! Full details on Hudson Horror Show 12

Without a doubt one of the best horror shows I have been to, is the Hudson Horror Show up in Poughkeepsie, New York. This is the show that enabled me to see my absolute favorite horror flick in 35mm, that being Fulci's House by the Cemetery, along with such gems as Phantasm 2 and Re-Animator. I've not had the chance to get to it, for the last few times, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, my work schedule has conflicted with it, and secondly it sells out so damned quickly, due to its increasing popularity. Now its back with its 12th installment, and instead of just screening its 6 films on one screen, they've expanded to two. So, now more can enjoy the goodness in 35mm!!

Once again, 6 films will screen, with one being a mystery movie that won't be unveiled until it screens. I can tell you this; it never fails to impress! Alongside the mystery flick, Hudson Horror Show 12 will screen, in no particular order or preference, The Warriors, Demonoid, Halloween II, Stunt Rock and Friday the 13th Part 2. Hell of a line-up, so get in there soon for tickets, if there are any left!!

Official press release:

It’s back, Hudson Horror Show, the biggest and baddest retro horror film festival in the Hudson Valley return for its twelfth all day 12 hour movie marathon! Hudson Horror Show #12 will be taking place on Saturday December 12th, 2015 at the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, NY.
We are thrilled that we are still at Silver Cinemas/South Hills 8 and we have added a second theater! The same program will run in both rooms, just in a different order.  One theater is already sold out, with seats in the other room going fast.  Get your tickets now!  Tickets are just $33.00 in advance for six full length movies and tons of classic trailers, ALL off vintage 35mm film! If any tickets remain, they will be available, day of show for $38.00 each, cash only. We haven’t sold tickets at the door in a few years, so don’t wait on buying those tickets.
If you haven’t heard, our lineup for show #12 (taking place on 12/12 – see what we did there) is absolutely phenomenal!  
Directed by Aussie great Brian Trenchard Smith and starring Stunt Man Grant Page and cult heavy metal rockers Sorcery, your brain will absolutely melt when you witness the carnage and cacophony that is STUNT ROCK!
Starring the greatest eyebrows in cinema history (owned by Stuart Whitman) our friends at Vinegar Syndrome will be presenting the latest acquisition to their film library, the Mexican horror movie mash up that is DEMONOID – MESSENGER OF DEATH!
We’ve of course got the dreaded MYSTERY MOVIE!!  We might actually announce the title in advance, or maybe we’ll ditch that idea and go for something ultra obscure.  Want to know what we are playing?  Buy a ticket and find out!
We then kick it into overdrive with a triple threat of headliners!  We’ve got Jason Voorhees' debut as an unstoppable killing machine, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2!  This is presented by the unstoppable movie watching machine, Jordan Garren of the B Movie Film Vault! 
The granddaddy of them all is of course, John Carpenter’s Halloween.  Well we are pleased to screen the amazing sequel, HALLOWEEN II, which is far gorier than its predecessor and features the best looking cast of victims of any slasher film ever.  As if that wasn’t enough, we bring it home with the action packed urban assault of THE WARRIORS!!
Besides the movies we will have vendors selling toys, t-shirts, posters and all sorts of cool horror related merchandise. Tickets are NOT needed to shop at our vendor’s area; tickets are ONLY needed to watch the movies.
If you are interested in being a vendor, or have a question, shoot us an email at chris@hudsonhorror.com. We will see you on December 12th, 2015 for Hudson Horror Show #12!
