Horror in the Hammer’s mandate for Fright Night Theatre is to entertain film audiences with a monthly showcase of shocking, scary, schlocky, and scintillating independent and mainstream horror films.

“Our goal with Fright Night Theatre is to honor independent Canadian and international talent,” says Aaron Allen, director of Horror in the Hammer. “We want to help give unique independent films such as Bloodsucka Jones more exposure and a voice in a difficult marketplace. We are passionate about bringing back the communal sense of fun, unpredictability, and showmanship that have been lost at the major corporate cinemas that now dominate our communities. Fright Night Theatre is not just a scary night at the movies – it’s a celebration of fringe filmmaking, controversial cinema, tongue-in-cheek B movies, and the art of the macabre.”

 To celebrate the screening, Horror in the Hammer commissioned artist Patrick Carson Sparrow (http://patricksparrow.tumblr.com) to design new artwork for the film, exclusive to Horror in the Hammer. As part of Horror in the Hammer’s program to support independent art, 20% of every poster sale goes directly to the artist.
