The first feature was Evil Dead. This wasn’t my first time seeing it on the big screen but fuck, it’s Evil Dead, it’s special with every viewing. Following the movie was a Q&A with Tom Sullivan.
Next was My Bloody Valentine. The remake was such a fun movie but it doesn’t compare to the greatness of the original film. The George Mihalka Q&A was conducting by Going to Pieces‘ Adam Rockoff.
Next we got to see Michael Dougherty’s short animated film, Season’s Greeting which inspired Trick ‘r Treat. I loved it!
Then starts Trick ‘r Treat. I will be taking time to write about this movie separately but I will say that it was pretty great. I cannot express how happy I was to see this before the release in Oct but it still would have been worth the wait. It was funny, gory and I love the stories. I’m really anxious to see this again, like right now. I’m just glad that this movie got to see the light of day and it’s no longer being pushed back. Folks, see this if/when you can!
Michael Dougherty ended the night with his Q&A
And this concludes Chicago’s Terror in the Aisles 2.
Stay Tuned for October’s edition of Chicago Events for the Music Box Massacre 5. I sit through 24 hours of horror movies and take on an endless battle of sleepiness.
