Ritz Cinemas tell us they’re having a whole weekend dedicated to classic retrospective horror films that are celebrating a significant anniversary this year.
First up is Brian de Palma’s peerless high-school horror “Carrie” (1976) screening on Friday 29 October at 8.30pm in celebration of its 45th anniversary.
Then there’s the cult cabin-in-the-woods horror “The Evil Dead” (1981) screening on Saturday 30 October at 8.30pm and celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
On Halloween day itself, there’s a family-friendly spooky option for kids who want to get in on the scary movie action; “The Addams Family” (1991) screens at 1.15pm and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
Finally, Ritz also presents a 25th anniversary screening of the ultimate meta-slasher film “Scream” (1996) on Halloween night, Sunday 31 October at 6.15pm.
Additionally, there are plenty of sessions of the new remake of “Candyman” directed by Nia DaCosta and co-written by Jordan Peele (”Get Out”, ”Us”).
