Time Out says
Scare yourself silly at The Astor's overnight Halloween film frenzy
And so it returns. The Great Astor Spooktacular arrives at the Astor once again for a night of blood-curdling cinema.
This year the Astor is screening nine horror films spanning four decades. The line-up includes 1970s zombie classic Dawn of the Dead; Freddy Krueger's first outing A Nightmare on Elm Street; the gory slasher The Texas Chain Saw Massacre; '90s teen slasher Scream; sexy-scary flick The Slumber Party Massacre; grotesque body horror Society; the award-winning supernatural horror Drag Me to Hell; the 1980s-inspired The House of the Devil; and homegrown horror movie Next of Kin.
The marathon begins at 7pm on Saturday, October 26 (as Halloween itself falls on a Thursday this year), with the Astor promising spooky surprises in addition to the films. Tickets are $35 (which works out to be a measly $3.80 a film) and are on sale now.
