Grab a buddy, grab a bag of popcorn, and buckle in for a night of low-budget terror and thrills during Eco-Horror Movie Nights this October. Scary, silly, and delightfully cringey, these sci-fi/horror movies engage human anxiety around nature and our impact on the natural world.
This year the center is featuring Attack of the Monster Crabs (1957) and Frogs (1973). Read more about each film below.
“Today the pond…tomorrow the world!”
Frogs is an environmental revenge flick that’s both gruesome and ridiculous. The plot centers on Jason Crockett, a nature-hating millionaire who has invited his family to his island estate to celebrate his birthday. Crockett has been attempting to control the frog population on his island through excessive use of poisons…and the frogs have finally decided to fight back. As the guests slowly realize that something is amiss, they attempt to flee—only to be picked off one by one by snakes, tarantulas, and all manner of frenzied creatures. This movie is heavy on the agonizing deaths, so consider yourself warned!
Directed by George McCowan, starring Sam Elliott and Ray Milland. Rated PG. Playtime: 91 minutes
Tickets available in advance or at the door. Doors open at 6:30pm.
