CREATURE FEATURES: A Secret 16mm Horror Film Marathon

Run Time: 720 min.

35mm can be beautiful, but 16mm is personal. It’s the weird magical object in your parents’ attic, the sacred feeling thing that you might find at a garage sale – it’s being inducted into a secret society, an older neighbour giving you a joint. It’s the middle child after 8mm, the messy kid brother chuckling to themselves. It’s the most mustachioed of the film formats, if you’re still hanging along with this dumb metaphor.

This six-feature marathon of straight-up horror havoc comes from the archives of Secret Sixteen: L.A.’s sickest hand-picked collection of this portable, wondrous film format.

Join Secret Sixteen founder Mike Williamson, Josh Miller (Friday Night Frights) and Bret Berg (Museum of Home Video) for a 12-hour blast of creature-feature comforts.  These sickos decided that we needed to go even harder than our marathon last year by busting open their trove of Halloween spooks and scares that lovingly hearkens back to some dingy bong basement memory.

Titles aren’t revealed until they unspool onscreen — Get ready to squirm at savage vermin, screwed-up scientists, gooey gutterballs, post-nuke bogeys, swampy ogres and demented deities! BYO barf bags
