CREEPSHOW and  PAPERBACKS FROM HELL
George Romero, Stephen King and... Grady Hendrix!  Join us for a night of pulp fun and insanity.  First, author Grady Hendrix (Horrorstör; My Best Friend's Exorcism) will appear in person with his hilarious PAPERBACKS FROM HELL.  In the early Seventies, three books changed horror forever: ROSEMARY'S BABY, THE EXORCIST, and THE OTHER. The first horror novels to hit bestseller lists since 1940, they opened the floodgates for an avalanche of horror paperbacks to pour onto supermarket shelves throughout the Seventies and Eighties until SILENCE OF THE LAMBS slit the genre's throat in the early Nineties. Hendrix will deliver a mind-melting multi-media history of this now forgotten world of Nazi leprechauns, skeleton doctors, killer crabs, killer jellyfish, killer babies, pretty much killer everything.  Plus, insights into Stephen King and secrets of CREEPSHOW to be revealed!

Then it's the fan favorite CREEPSHOW, written by Stephen King (who knows a thing or two about paperback horror) and directed by the legendary George Romero.  An anthology of five terrifying tales based on the E.C. horror comic books of the '50s, CREEPSHOW features Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielson, Ed Harris and so many, many more!  Not rated.  Combined run time expected to run close to 4 hours.
