It's almost February. What does that mean? Another year alone on Valentine's Day. But who knows that better than anybody? Vampires, those godless, undead creatures of the night who exist solely to feed on the blood of the living. It's hard being a bloodsucker. You could even say... love bites. And that's exactly what will happen on February 18, 2015, just a few days after that horrible Hallmark holiday is over, when lowculture returns to PhilaMOCA for another edition of NIGHT TERRORS. February's double-feature will lead off with 1993's vampire splatter opus DARKNESS and follow with a second even more insane SOV vampire film. Like previous NIGHT TERRORS films THE DEAD NEXT DOOR and THE DEADLY SPAWN before it, DARKNESS is the kind of DIY nightmare that rarely reoccurs in today's bland VOD market. Sprung from the mind of a disturbingly creative young auteur named Leif Jonker, the film was written, directed, edited, and everything'd by the then 19 year-old on a micro-budget of $5000. It tells the story of a young man seeking revenge from a clan of creatures of the night armed only with a shotgun, a chainsaw, and a bloodlust of his own. Among its many accolades, DARKNESS holds the distinction of being considered one of the bloodiest movies ever made. What more could you ask for? Well, it also might hold the record for most exploding heads. Don't be dumb. You need to see this. NIGHT TERRORS is a recurring monthly series of double-features that takes place the third Wednesday of every month. Established as a co-production between PhilaMOCA and lowculture, the series intends to highlight the strange and disturbing, with a primary focus on low-budget trash cinema of the 1980s and 1990s. In the coming months NIGHT TERRORS will cover everything from gory no-budget horror freakshows to hyper-violent action-schlock and everything in-between in an attempt to establish thematic links between the seemingly contradictory and the occasionally obvious.
