Pittsburgh, PA – December 1, 2013 – Horror Realm has a holiday treat for all its good (and bad) little horror fans! A special screening of three non-traditional Santa films will be held at the Hollywood Theater in Dormont on Sunday, December 8. Tickets are available at the door for $5 for each film, or see all three films for $10. The film schedule is:
– 4:30 PM – Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964) – hurray for Santy Claus! TV Guide says “This is, without exaggeration, one of the single worst films ever made, which hasn’t prevented it from becoming a cult classic.” The movie features a 10 year old Pia Zadora.
– 6:30 PM – Krampus: The Christmas Devil (2013) – St. Nick’s evil brother brings wrath on children who misbehave. This indie film has won Runner-up best horror film at both the 2013 Cleveland Indie Gathering and the prestigious Action on Film Film Festival in Monrovia, CA.
– 8:15 PM – Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987) – sequel to the 1984 Santa slasher flick. Prayers won’t save you in the silent part of this night….
This is the final night of the annual holiday gift drive to benefit The Bradley Center, a regional behavioral healthcare and child welfare system that provides comprehensive and caring services to children, youth and families. Patrons are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped gift donation. Suggested gift items include gift cards, arts and crafts items, board or card games, hats/gloves/scarves or items with logos of the city’s professional sports teams.
