Free ‘Spooky Christmas’ horror film festival plans bloody night at Ale Mary’s in Scranton on Dec. 17
From a press release:
The first annual NEPA Horror Film Festival debuted at the River Street Jazz Cafe in Plains on Oct. 16, drawing over 100 guests. Rather than wait until next year for more scares, the festival is presenting a “Spooky Christmas” at Ale Mary’s (126 Franklin Ave., Scranton) on Thursday, Dec. 17.
There will be free screenings of “Dismembering Christmas,” the 1972 cult classic “Silent Night, Bloody Night,” “Feeders 2: Slay Bells,” and some short films, all starting at 7 p.m. There will be drink specials, and the kitchen will be open until 10 p.m.
A synopsis of “Dismembering Christmas,” a new holiday horror film from Slasher Studios, follows:
It was supposed to be a holiday vacation they would never forget, not a holiday vacation they would never survive. When Mark and his friends go up to his father’s new vacation home for Christmas vacation, they were ready for a fun time. Out in the middle of nowhere, the house is cheerfully decorated for Christmas, but an unknown visitor is there, and one by one they are murdered. It’s Christmas, and not a creature is stirring except for the killer in the house…
A tribute to the glory days of holiday horror, “Dismembering Christmas” can best be described as “Friday the 13th” meets “Black Christmas.” Have you ever wanted a “Friday the 13th” set in the winter? Well, so did Slasher Studios, and that’s why they created this movie just for you. Practical effects from beginning to end, likable characters, and a kickass final girl – what more could you want in a slasher?
