Highlighting most of the members from the comedy troupe The State, this skit-fest is one of those films that grows on you until it's suddenly one of your favorite line-quoting movies ever. Must see gags by Paul Rudd & Janeane Garafalo are worth the admission alone! Preceded by early 1980s summer camp trailers. Rated R. 97min. 35mm print courtesy of Universal.

- FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)
(30TH+ ANNiVERSARY 35MM SCREENiNG!)
Written by Victor Miller & Ron Kurz; Directed by Sean S. Cunningham
Containing: Adrienne King, Betsy Palmer, Ari Lehman & Kevin Bacon
Director Sean S. Cunningham found the perfect mix of Mario Bava's bloody TWiTCH OF THE DEATH NERVE (1971) with John Carpenter's minimalist gem HALLOWEEN (1978) with this "summer camp" classic. With Tom Savini delivering his newly grotesque SFX and even giving Kevin Bacon his debut appearance, this low-budget mainstream success (inspiring 11 films to follow) is now at the top of the heap of Stalker giants. Preceded by a gaggle of priceless Stalker films. Not to mention you'll be humming one of the greatest Horror soundtracks ever written for days after. Rated R. 95min. 35mm print courtesy of Paramount.

- DEAD/ALiVE (1992)
(20TH ANNIVERSAY 35MM SCREENING!)
Written by Stephen Sinclair; Directed by Peter Jackson
Containing: Timothy Balme, Diana Peņalver and Elizabeth Moody
The main event of tonite's "KiLLER SUMMER" five film festival is easily the funniest, goriest and most inventive horror/comedy this side of Sam Raimi's EViL DEAD 2! Brilliantly conceived in New Zealand 20 years ago by LORD OF THE RiNGS master Peter Jackson, this film has gained the crown ala creme when it comes to zombie films. Watch a diseased Sumatran rat-monkey bite Lionel's Mom, who then will single-handedly create hell on earth which includes ass-kicking priests, zombified babies, more walking dead than George Romero's whole sextology! Did I mention that you will never look at a lawnmower the same again?! Come see Jackson's magnus opus before his new 48-frame rate epic THE HOBBiT hits theaters later this year! Preceded by some upcoming M4M events! UNRATED newly struck 35mm print courtesy of Lionsgate.
Watch the RARE original BRAiNDEAD trailer:
- THE BURNiNG: UNRATED & MOSTLY UNCUT (1981)
(30TH ANNiVERSARY 35MM SCREENiNG!)
Written by Peter Lawrence, Bob & Harvey Weinstein; Directed by Tony Maylam
Containing: Brian Matthews, Leah Ayres, Brian Backer, Holly Hunter, Fisher Stevens & Jason Alexander
This nasty lil' knockoff of FRiDAY THE 13TH was conceived by Bob & Harvey Weinstein and now represents everything amazing about summer-camp Stalker films. This creepy little tale of "Cropsey" showcases yet again Tom Savini SFX that will have squealing like a grown man... though this only known UNCUT AND UNRATED 35mm print is missing the infamous "raft" scene. :( With debut's by Holly Hunter, Fisher Stevens and a priceless performance by SEiNFELD'S Jason Alexander, you don't want to miss this early-80s gore-fest! Preceded by the meanest and bloodiest Stalker trailers I could find! Unrated & Uncut. 91min. 35mm print courtesy of MGM.
