Sweet Sixteen (1983)
Directed by Jim Sotos (Forced Entry); Written by Erwin Goldman; Starring Bo Hopkins (Midnight Express, The Wild Bunch, American Graffiti), Susan Strasberg, Patrick Macnee, Don Stroud, Dana Kimmell, Don Shanks, Glenn Withrow, Michael Pataki, Sharon Farrell, Steve Antin.
What it’s about: When a teenage girl moves to a small town, she discovers each time she goes out with a boy, he is mysteriously murdered. Ahh, the 80’s! This movie will take you back to a time where “teenagers” in movies looked like fully-grown adults. And for some men, going out with a girl who turns out to be jailbait is almost as scary as being murdered in cold blood.
The Convent (2000)
Directed by Mike Mendez (Masters of Horror; Big Ass Spider!; Lavalantula); Written by Chaton Anderson; Starring Joanna Canton, Coolio, Megahn Perry, Renee Graham, Adrienne Barbeau (Swamp Thing, The Fog, Escape From New York, Creepshow), Allison Dunbar, Bill Moseley, Chaton Anderson, Dorenda Moore, Elle Alexander, Liam Kyle Sullivan
What it’s about: A group of college students breaks into an abandoned convent and become possessed by demonic spirits. Horror vet Adrienne Barbeau, immolated nuns, frat boys and college girls battling Satanists, plus a bit of 90’s rapper Coolio and a whole lot of gore makes for a campy yet religious pre-Halloween experience.
In addition, fans will get exclusive new in-theater content from Multicom Entertainment in a behind the scenes and in-depth look at the filming and restoration of The Convent.
