THE THING (1982)
Directed by John Carpenter
In tribute to actor Donald Moffat
John Carpenter’s masterful re-imagining of the classic 1951 film has become a classic in its own right – a powerful and richly cinematic work of fright, drama and paranoia featuring ground-breaking effects and a host of powerful ensemble performances, with Kurt Russell in the lead role.
This screening is in tribute to renowned actor Donald Moffat, who brilliantly portrayed “Garry” in the film and who was a Sleepy Hollow resident before his passing. Members of Donald Moffat’s family will be present for a live introduction!
CHOPPING MALL (1986)
Directed by Jim Wynorski
The insanely entertaining CHOPPING MALL’s cult status continues to grow like wildfire and it’s totally easy to see why! It’s way, WAY fun, fast-paced and action-packed, and it’s one of the greatest ’80’s mall-culture cinematic time capsules you’ll ever lay eyes on!
The film’s co-writer and second-unit director, Steve Mitchell, will be present to introduce the film!
SAT OCT 16
MONSTER SQUAD (1987)
Directed by Fred Dekker
When classic monsters Dracula, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, The Mummy and The Wolfman run rampant in small town USA, it’s up to a rambunctious group of misfit kids to save the day – and do they ever in this wildly enjoyable ’80s monster-mash!
This screening is presented by La-La Land Records, who will have the film’s limited edition CD soundtrack available for purchase at the drive-in.
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981)
Directed by John Landis
40 years after its big screen debut in 1981, John Landis’ horror comedy retains its status as one of the best genre films in cinema history. Oscar-winning effects, a razor-clawed script teeming with shocks and laughs, and finely honed lead performances by David Naughton, Griffin Dunne and Jenny Agutter result in a creature feature classic. We can’t wait to screen this masterpiece outside, in Sleepy Hollow itself, with all of you!
MIDNIGHT SHOW! SATAN’S LITTLE HELPER (2004)
Directed by Jeff Lieberman
Renowned independent filmmaker Jeff Leiberman (BLUE SUNSHINE, SQUIRM, JUST BEFORE DAWN) brings a compellingly sly and sinister off-beat vibe to his macabre tale of a young boy who unknowingly spends Halloween night trick or treating through the neighborhood with a Satan-costumed serial killer! Don’t miss this rare, home-town big-screen showing of a new cult classic whose shooting locations include Tarrytown, White Plains, Hastings-on-Hudson, Yonkers and Mount Vernon NY!
Director Jeff Lieberman will be present to introduce the film. He’s also be signing copies of his acclaimed new autobiography DAY OF THE LIVING ME, which will be available for purchase at the drive-in.
