Join The Awesome Fest & Philadelphia Film Society as we pay homage to the late writer & director Wes Craven during A VERY SCARY SLEEPOVER: WES CRAVEN'S HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARE.
Reminding Audiences why they should be scared of the dark, Wes Craven's career began in the early 1970's with THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT and THE HILLS HAVE EYES. An anchor and icon of the contemporary horror genre, Craven is responsible for bringing serial killer Freddy Krueger to life in 1984's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, which has since provoked eight sequels including a remake in 2010. During the 1990's and 2000's Craven is most remembered for unhinging audiences with SCREAM and its three sequels.
This fright fest marathon runs from the morning of Saturday, October 31st through the wee hours of Sunday, November 1st at The Prince Theater, and features seven titles from the NIGHTMARE franchise plus four other unforgettable, unnerving classics. Scared you won't stay awake? Ox coffee will be in the lobby offering complimentary coffee from the awesome Stumptown Coffee Roaster to get you through the night!
