Just a quick thought for Twin Cities horror fans looking for a slightly different Hallowe'en experience. The Oak Street Cinema is showing the results of the latest Minnesota Film Arts 24 Hour Horror Film challenge this evening.
Moviemakers had just a day to make a horror movie following a number of rules, including that the film had to be shot on a set, that there be no depiction of death on-screen, that there be at least one scene involving eating, and it could be no longer than 5 minutes.
Oh - and it had to be a period piece too. None of this 21st century stuff.
The films were due in at 10pm last Friday, and Adam over at Mn Film Arts said he expected about 15 finished movies.
You can see them all at the Oak Street in Minneapolis tonight, starting at 7.30. Admission is five bucks. Another five gets you into "All Freakin' Night," an all night horror fest featuring rare and not-so-rare footage, lasting till dawn. "Carnival of Souls" kicks it off at 10pm, "The Devil's Rejects" plays at midnight, "Slumber Party Massacre" at 2 am, and "Nosferatu" will ring in the morning hours at 6 am.
