Fright Night Movies at Maxwell’s in Hoboken Saturday November 2 8pm

Filed under: Hoboken,Maxwells,movies — Tags: , , , , , — TheBoken @ 3:10 PM

The regular music might not be a Maxwell’s of Hoboken anymore but a night of two horror horror movies awaits those not of the faint of heart coming this Saturday…..

Fright Night Movies at Maxwell’s

Saturday November 2nd

A scary double feature:  The original Night of the Living Dead and Tod Browning’s Freaks

Double Feature begins at 8pm – Admission is $5.00

Address: 1039 Washington Street, Hoboken 

Night of the Living Dead Hoboken 11-2-2013 at Maxwells

Night of the Living Deadthe original, 1968, black-&-white,  American, independent, classic, horror film directed by George A. Romero. 

The dead come back to life & eat the living in this low budget film. Several people barricade themselves inside a rural house in an attempt to survive the night. Outside are hordes of relentless, shambling zombies who can only be killed by a blow to the head.

The film  was heavily criticized at its release owing to explicit content, but eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as a film deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”

Five years after its premiere, Paul McCullough of Take One, observed that Night of the Living Dead was the “most profitable horror film ever [...] produced outside the walls of a major studio”. The film had earned between $12 and $15 million at the American box office after a decade. It was translated into more than 25 languages and released across Europe, Canada and Australia. It grossed $30 million internationally, and the Wall Street Journal reported that it was the top grossing film in Europe in 1969.

More than 40 years after its release, the film enjoys a reputation as a classic and still receives positive reviews; Night of the Living Dead currently holds a 96% “Certified Fresh” rating on the review aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes,and it is regarded by many as one of the best films of 1968. The New York Times placed the film on their Best 1000 Movies Ever list.  In January 2010, Total Film included the film on its list of The 100 Greatest Movies of All Time. Rolling Stone magazine named Night of the Living Dead one of The 100 Maverick Movies in the Last 100 Years.

It was awarded two distinguished honors decades after its debut. The Library of Congress added the film to the National Film Registry in 1999 with other films deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”. In 2001, the film was ranked No. 93 by the American Film Institute on their AFI’s 100 Years . . . 100 Thrills list, a list of America’s most heart-pounding movies. The Chicago Film Critics Association named it the 5th scariest film ever made.  The film also ranked No. 9 on Bravo’s The 100 Scariest Movie Moments.

Freaks is a 1932 American Pre-Code horror film about sideshow performers,
directed & produced by Tod Browning.  with a cast mostly composed of actual carnival performers. The film was based on Tod Robbins‘ 1923 short fiction story “Spurs“. Director Browning took the exceptional step of casting real people with deformities, rather than using costumes and makeup.

Browning had been a member of a traveling circus in his early years, and much of the film was drawn from his personal experiences. In the film, the physically deformed sideshow performers are inherently trusting and honorable people, while the real monsters are two of the “normal” members of the circus who conspire to murder one of the performers to obtain his large inheritance.

At the time of its release, despite extensive cuts, the film was negatively received by audiences, and remained an object of extreme controversy. Browning, famed at the time for his collaborations with Lon Chaney and for directing Bela Lugosi in Dracula (1931), had trouble finding work afterward, and this effectively brought his career to an early close. Beginning in the early 1960s, Freaks was rediscovered as a counterculture cult film, and throughout the 1970s and 1980s, the film was regularly shown at midnight movie screenings at several movie theaters in the United States.  In 1994, Freaks was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. It was ranked 15th on Bravo TV’s list of the 100 Scariest Movie Moments.

Pitch Perfect Trivia Hoboken Village Pourhouse 8-26-2013

On August 26 at 8pm Trivia AD will be hosting the Pitch Perfect Trivia contest based on the popular movie at the Village Pourhouse in Hoboken. The address is 205 1st Street Hoboken, NJ. This is your chance to get “pitch slapped” and you most certainly don’t want to be out of the action and later regret being absent and saying “son of a pitch” or something like that. But I digress like a never ending circle of fifths.
