This is something so fucking awesome I had to put in on my blog. One of the only truly cool theaters left in Boston is the Coolidge Corner Theater in--ironically--Coolidge Corner. This Friday starts the Horrors OF John Carpenter Series which kicks off with the classic Halloween. Wash the taste of Rob Zombie's God-awful remake from your mouth with a big gulping taste of the original!! Here are the times and days of the festival:

I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes.

Director John Carpenter's original masterpiece gave bloody birth to the slasher genre. Before Michael Myers, babysitters felt safe on the job and children were comfortable in their beds at night, having forgotten about the Boogeyman. This is the film that put inexplicable evil back on our list of fears. The shape of horror was forever changed the night he came home.

I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

They are everywhere. They have taken over the Earth. Lucky for us, Rowdy Roddy Piper can see them and he's going to kick their asses back to whichever planet they've come from. Boasting the best fight over a pair of sunglasses ever filmed, this Carpenter classic is a bit on the campier side but is still not to be missed!

Nobody... nobody trusts anybody now, and we're all very tired... there's nothing more I can do, just wait...

We live in a time where horror remakes are king at the box office. Unfortunately none of them will ever be as good as this re-imagining of 1951's The Thing From Another World. John Carpenter breaks frozen ground once again with this milestone in special effects and gore. When an alien being begins killing off and assuming the identities of Antarctic scientists, it's up to R.J. MacReady (Kurt Russell) to battle the creature as well as his paranoid colleagues.
