SCARYMOVIES13ANNOUNCEFEAT

New York City’s best showcase of horror films new and old has its most exciting edition yet on the way for later this month and November, as the lineup for the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Scary Movies 7 has been announced, including a number of premieres and guest appearances.

Scary Movies 7 will take place starting Halloween night, October 31 and continue through Thursday, November 7. The series will include the U.S. premieres of Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson’s satirical teen terror tale ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE (review here), with producer Andrew van den Houten in attendance; Lorenzo Bianchini’s deep-woods Italian creepfest ACROSS THE RIVER (review here); and Gonzalo López-Gallego’s twisty psychological chiller OPEN GRAVE, starring DISTRICT 9 and ELYSIUM’s Sharlto Copley. Making their New York premieres are CHEAP THRILLS, E.L. Katz’s standout black-comic shocker about dare games taken to the extreme (review here); THE GREEN INFERNO, Eli Roth’s homage to Italian cannibal cinema (pictured above; review here), with Roth in person; PATRICK, Mark Hartley’s remake of Richard Franklin’s cult fave about a comatose but telekinetic hospital patient, starring YOU’RE NEXT’s Sharni Vinson (review here); PROXY, Zack Parker’s study of dangerous mind games stemming from a support group (review here); AFFLICTED, Cliff Prowse and Derek Lee’s action-packed variation on found-footage standards, with Prowse and Lee on hand; and NIGHTBREED: THE CABAL CUT, Russell Cherrington’s expanded restoration of Clive Barker’s monster epic.

On the retrospective side, fans will have the chance to check out Alain Robak’s BABY BLOOD (in its original French version), Michele Soavi’s CEMETERY MAN, “Jonathan Stryker’s” CURTAINS, William Fruet’s DEATH WEEKEND (a.k.a. THE HOUSE BY THE LAKE), John Hancock’s LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH, Peter Carter’s RITUALS and John Hough’s TWINS OF EVIL on the big screen. The movies will be shown at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center (144 West 65th Street), with the exception of GREEN INFERNO, which will be at the Walter Reade Theater (165 West 65th Street).
