Tomorrow at the Cinerama brings the commencement of Horror Week, which is exactly what it says it is: seven days of the world's best horror films—including Psycho, Alien, The Exorcist, The Omen, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, An American Werewolf in London, and more—projected onto the Cinerama's state-of-the-art screen. Tomorrow's special opening-night feature: Army of Darkness, preceded by a Q&A with the film's legendary star Bruce Campbell.
Meanwhile, the Grand Illusion kicks off a week of great, scrappy horror—Hellraiser!, Dario Argento's Deep Red! A triple-feature of classic horror compilations!—and Central Cinema screens The Lost Boys, The Cabin in the Woods, and a one-night-only extravaganza devoted to killer clowns.
(Sadly, Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave—featuring some of the most disturbing villains in cinema history—doesn't open till next week, but this week's citywide parade of horror should make for a good welcome mat...)
