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.
“From the depths of the sea…a tidal wave of terror!”
Undeniably bad and undeniably entertaining, Attack of the Crab Monsters tells the tale of a scientific expedition that has been sent to a remote Pacific island to discover the fate of a prior group of scientists. Unhappily for the expedition, they discover that the first group of scientists were eaten by a pair of radiation-mutated giant crabs that then absorbed their minds. What follows is a delightfully campy tooth and claw fight for the fate of the entire world!
Directed by Roger Corman, starring Richard Garland, Pamela Duncan, and Russell Johnson. Playtime: 62 minutes
Tickets available in advance or at the door. Doors open at 6:30pm.
