Friday the 13th Part III & Sleepaway Camp

A FILM BY: Steve Miner (FRIDAY THE 13TH)
WRITTEN BY: Martin Kitrosser (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Carol Watson (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Robert Hiltzik (SLEEPAWAY CAMP)

Friday The 13th Part III tends to get overlooked, being sandwiched between Part II—which features one of the most memorable heroines of slasher horror— and the quintessential, although misleading, Final Chapter. Part III delivers one of the most danceable horror themes this side of Prom Night, impressive kills (the harpoon and handstand split are Crystal Lake hall of famers), and solidifies an image that would terrify Boy Scouts for the decade to come: the hulking Jason Voorhees in his workwear couture and iconic hockey mask. A visually impressive film, the shift in location from the east coast to sunny California gives Friday The 13th Part III a distinctively warm palette. Director Steve Miner utilizes the emptiness of space, expertly suggesting the presence of Jason Voohees and delivering some welcome suspense before unleashing him on his latest batch of teenagers having an unlucky day in the windy, atmospheric climax. As the only Friday The 13th film shot in scope, even without the 3-D, this one deserves to be seen on the big, big screen. - Mike Vanderbilt


Robert Hiltzik’s Sleepaway Camp ushered in the second wave of slashers in the ‘80s, less focused on suspense and more on creative kills and gooey, gory special effects makeup. The film positions its killer as a sort of anti-hero, giving the vile tormentors of Camp Arawak exactly what they deserve and eliciting both scares and cheers from the audience. Hiltzik elevates Sleepaway Camp above the glut of forgettable Friday The 13th ripoffs by loading the film’s potential body count with not only the prerequisite rock-hard hunks and stone cold foxes, but with a collection of memorably disgusting characters that feel like the New Jersey equivalent of John Waters’ stable of weirdos. (Here at the Music Box Of Horrors, we stan Aunt Martha.) The infamous climax remains as provocative and shocking as it was in 1983, and still has audiences debating what the film is trying to say...or if it has anything to say at all. - Mike Vanderbilt

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

A FILM BY: Tommy Lee Wallace
WRITTEN BY: Tommy Lee Wallace
STARRING: Tom Atkins, Stacey Nelkin, Dan O'Herlihy

Part of Half-O-Ween 2021: Horror Weekend at the Drive-In, Presented by Creepy Co. 

Unfairly maligned for far too long—largely because of a lack of Michael Myers—Halloween III: Season Of The Witch has finally begun to take its well-deserved place as a goopy, nasty, unsettling, black comedic horror gem. With an inimitable (and alcohol-soaked) performance from Tom Atkins (and his ass!), a jingle that will stick in your head for days, a paranoid toy-manufacturing conspiracy plot guaranteed to chill your marrow, and children's heads collapsing into a soup of snakes and creepy-crawlies, Tommy Lee Wallace's (Fright Night Part 2) Halloween III is the perfect, perverse antidote to the absurdity of contemporary life on earth.

Midsommar & Alucarda

A FILM BY: Ari Aster (MIDSOMMAR)
WRITTEN BY: Ari Aster (MIDSOMMAR), Alexis Arroyo (ALUCARDA)
STARRING: Florence Pugh (MIDSOMMAR), Jack Reynor (MIDSOMMAR), Vilhelm Blomgren (MIDSOMMAR), Claudio Brook (ALUCARDA), David Silva (ALUCARDA), Tina Romero (ALUCARDA)

Part of Half-O-Ween 2021: Horror Weekend at the Drive-In, Presented by Creepy Co. 

The sun never sets in Midsommar, just one of the many disorienting things about writer-director Ari Aster’s followup to Hereditary. At once an eccentric entry into the burgeoning folk-horror revival, an embittered relationship drama, and a slasher movie told in slow motion with the lights on, Midsommar stars Florence Pugh as a college student who reluctantly joins her boyfriend and his roommates on a trip to rural Sweden to observe a pagan fertility festival. The film starts off intense—some A+ wailing from Florence in this movie—and turns twisted, building to a drug-fueled nightmare scenario that’s also oddly cleansing. Happy May Day! - Katie Rife


Speaking of perverse catharsis, there’s Alucarda, a movie that’s known among connoisseurs of far-out world cinema for three things: Blasphemy, blood, and lots of screaming. This late ‘70s Satanic horror oddity centers around two teenage girls, Justine and Alucarda, who fall in love at a convent in 1830s Mexico. They then do what all young lovers do when their thoughts turn to spring: Pledge their souls to Lucifer, and vow revenge on God and all his servants. Admirers of Ken Russell’s The Devils will get a kick out of the movie’s anti-authoritarian and anti-patriarchal themes, and its feverish visuals will appeal to fans of Moctezuma’s countryman Alejandro Jodorowsky. But we can all appreciate a Satanic orgy and a literal blood bath on a Saturday night, right? - Katie Rife
