The Bloody Disgusting Presents Retro Nightmares Cinema Series has brought five HD digitally remastered cultclassics–as voted online by fans–to the big screen for one night only every Thursday, starting with The House on Sorority Row (September 27th), followed by a Double Feature of Amityville: The Evil Escapes and Amityville: It’s About Time (October 4th), and concluding with a Double Feature of Sweet Sixteen and The Convent (October 11th).
Sweet Sixteen (1983)
Directed by Jim Sotos (Forced Entry); written by Erwin Goldman; and starring Bo Hopkins (Midnight Express, The Wild Bunch, American Graffiti), Susan Strasberg, Patrick Macnee, Don Stroud, Dana Kimmell, Don Shanks, Glenn Withrow, Michael Pataki, Sharon Farrell, and Steve Antin; Sweet Sixteen is about a teenage girl who moves to a small town and discovers that each time she goes
out with a boy he is mysteriously murdered.
Ahh, the ‘80s! This movie will take you back to a time where “teenagers” in movies looked like fully-grown adults. And for some men, going out with a girl who turns out to be jailbait is almost as scary as being murdered in cold blood.
The Convent (2000)
Directed by Mike Mendez (Masters of Horror, Big Ass Spider!, Lavalantula); written by Chaton Anderson; and starring Joanna Canton, Coolio, Megahn Perry, Renee Graham, Adrienne Barbeau (Swamp Thing, The Fog, Escape From New York, Creepshow), Allison Dunbar, Bill Moseley, Chaton Anderson, Dorenda Moore, Elle Alexander, and Liam Kyle Sullivan; the movie is about a group of college students that breaks into an abandoned convent and become possessed by demonic spirits.
Horror vet Adrienne Barbeau, immolated nuns, frat boys, and college girls battling Satanists, plus a bit of ‘90s rapper Coolio and a whole lot of gore makes for a campy yet religious pre-experience.
In addition, fans will get exclusive new in-theater content from Multicom Entertainment in a behind the scenes and in-depth look at the filming and restoration of The Convent.
Attendees also have a chance to win a FreeNAS Mini media storage device (estimated retail value over $1,200) from iXsystems by posting their ticket stubs on social media and tagging #Retronightmares. Follow on Retronightmares.com for more details.
