House Of Wax - In 3-D

The Dead by Dawn horror festival, ususally held in April, emerges from its crypt to present a back-to-back horror double. Part one is this Vincent Price-starring chiller from 1953, which holds the dubious honor of being the first 3D colour film produced by an American studio.

Halloween

Part two of the Filmhouse double bill is a late night screening of John Carpenter's classic slasher, in which Jamie Lee Curtis must escape the unstoppable killing machine that is Michael Myers. No, not the guy in 'Wayne's World'.
