Inspired by a recent episode of Corpse Club I recorded with my #HorrorBFF Heather Wixson, I thought it would be fun to program 24 hours of Father's Day-themed horror movies. It's something Heather asked me to do on the podcast, but like a dummy I was winging it instead of preparing my lineup ahead of time; here's my opportunity to right that wrong.
Full disclosure: I'll be using the same titles here as I named on the podcast, but also adding about twice as many titles. Gotta go the full 24!
10 am - The Funhouse (1981, dir. Tobe Hooper)
11:45 am - It's Alive (1974, dir. Larry Cohen)
1:15 pm - Frankenstein (1931, dir. James Whale)
2:30 pm - Pumpkinhead (1988, dir. Stan Winston)
4 pm - Eyes Without a Face (1960, dir. Georges Franju)
5:30 pm - The Woman (2011, dir. Lucky McKee)
7:30 pm - Creepshow (1982, dir. George A. Romero)
9:45 pm - Frailty (2001, dir. Bill Paxton)
11:30 pm - Pet Sematary (1989, dir. Mary Lambert)
1:30 am - City of the Living Dead (aka The Gates of Hell) (1980, dir. Lucio Fulci)
3 am - Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985, dir. Danny Steinmann)
4:30 am - The People Under the Stairs (1991, dir Wes Craven)
6:30 am - The Loved Ones (2009, dir. Sean Byrne)
8 am - The Lost Boys (1987, dir. Joel Schumacher)
Happy Father's Day!
