An fps Films GRINDHOUSE DOUBLE FEATURE @ The Hollywood Theatre in Dormont, PA! Friday, April 23rd, 2010

So, unbelievably, fps Films and the Hollywood Theatre are doing yet ANOTHER Grindhouse Double Feature in the month of April. This time, the films are decidedly less schlocky. In fact, these films are regarded by Italian Giallo (murder mystery) aficionados as two of the finest examples of the genre (and a secret Gabrielle Lavia Double Feature!!!).

First up is "Revenge of the Dead".The title is misleading since it's not a traditional Zombie movie. It's actually a retitle of Pupi Avati's "Zeder". It's a movie about resurrecting the dead and has been cited as the inspiration for Stephen King's novel, "Pet Sematary".

The second feature is near legendary. We're playing Dario Argento's masterpiece, "Deep Red". The print we're playing has been retitled "The Hatchet Murders", but it is "Deep Red". Not much else to be said about "Deep Red", but if you're one of those people who haven't heard of it (Shame!), it's a taut murder mystery that will absolutely keep you guessing until the very end!

The films will be presented with a Short Subject and a reel of vintage Horror movie Previews. Everything in the program is being shown on 35mm film! There's no digital projection on this program.

It all starts at 10:00pm at The Hollywood Theater in Dormont, PA (On Potomac Avenue, just outside of Pittsburgh; a few miles from the Liberty Tubes on Rt. 19) Tickets are $6 at the door. Stomach Distress Vomit Bags will be provided for anyone who can't take the HORROR (or if you need to put your popcorn in something)! Oh, yeah, it's also a BYOB theater, so bring some beer, if you're inclined.

Please come and bring all of your friends. It's an experience you won't want to miss!
