UPCOMING FREAK SHOW: Holiday fright fest ! “New Year’s Evil” vs. “Halloween”
FILMREAKTER DOUBLE FEATURE #7 @ CINEMATHEQUE – FRIDAY 16/12/2011 starts at 22h00, Entry: 6€ (two films + free drinks)

You thought Halloween was over? Well, not for the weirdos at Filmreakter who were too drunk to notice! Busy pimpin’ around in the hood, unleashing psycho killers on Luxembourg audiences or else burying their heads in Russ Meyer’s massive mammaries, they’ve now come up with a new Double Feature:

First, schlock joins shocks in the obscure “New Year’s Evil”. Directed by Emmet Alston, who gave us instantly forgettable fare such as “3 Little Ninjas” or “American Ninja”, this fright-fest starts with an interesting premise: a punk rock TV host receives a call from a maniac who menaces to kill one “naughty girl” after another as the new year strikes in each time zone!

John Carpenter’s 1978 classic “Halloween” is the end-all of American slasher movies. Do we need to introduce it? The first horror flick to really make use of the now-ubiquitous “killer’s point-of-view” shot, this low-budget shocker is high on nail-biting and surprisingly low on actual gore, which only heightens its disturbing impact.

Join us on December 16th – the last day before Cinematheque closes its doors for the holiday! Or else… you won’t live past New Year’s Eve!
