The Night Is Coming After You: Nightmare City’s Video Nasties Watch-a-Thon


Cinefamily’s upcoming month-long horror celebration is pretty much the raddest thing ever. Presented in partnership with Elijah Wood’s The Woodshed Horror Company, Nightmare City is a 30-day midnight video nasty watch-a-thon to commemorate the 30 year anniversary of the video nasty uproar in the U.K.

Yep. It’s a nightmare come true. 30 days of over-the-top brain smashing, blood-gushing nasty goodness. To sweeten the deal Cinefamily is offering prizes to the fans who sit through the most movies:

3RD PLACE: the 3-DVD all-region UK box set Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide
2ND PLACE: a vintage large-format French theatrical poster for The Burning + the 3-DVD all-region UK box set Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide
1ST PLACE: the chance to guest-program an upcoming Cinefamily midnight movie screening + the 3-DVD all-region UK box set Video Nasties: The Definitive Guide. In the event of a tie for first place, we will hold a Video Nasties trivia runoff live on the Cinefamily stage as a tiebreaker!

All showtimes are at midnight and tickets cost $12 (free to members). The schedule is below, along with a sneak peek of all the nastiness. Driller Killer! Blood Fest! Cannibal Ferox! It all kicks off tonight with the creepy aunt classic: Night Warning.
