Last year Williamsburg’s Nitehawk Cinema celebrated Halloween with the inaugural Nite to Dismember, an all-night horror-movie marathon that included An American Werewolf in London, Burn Witch Burn, Fright Night, The Burning, and Dawn of the Dead. For the second annual event, which begins at midnight on Halloween, Nitehawk will be honoring the sequel with an all-night marathon of horror sequels. The frightful fun begins with a 35mm screening of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead II, which is really more of a parody remake, followed by digital projections of James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein, Steve Miner’s Friday the 13th: Part 2, Terence Fisher’s Dracula: Prince of Darkness (with Christopher Lee and dubbed Scream Queen Barbara Shelley), and Dan O’Bannon’s The Return of the Living Dead, with the Pathmark man himself, James (Poltergeist) Karen. In addition, there will be horror shorts, trivia, giveaways, and a costume contest, all hosted by Fangoria’s Sam Zimerman and Nitehawk’s Kris King, eighteen and over only, please. This is likely to sell out well in advance, so don’t wait to get tickets for this sequel-filled sequel. (Keep on watching twi-ny as we highlight other crazy, weird, funny, scary, bizarre, wacky, eclectic, and downright stupid things to do for Halloween this year.)
