B.O.T’s BLOOD BATH THEATER PRESENTS:

BLOOD FEAST 

Sponsored by Arrow Video & shown at The North Door (Austin) 

November 22nd, 2017

The November screening of Blood Bath Theater (our monthly horror screening sponsored by Arrow Video) is Blood Feast! One of  the most influential movies — and the first splatter movies  ever— Blood Feast (1963) was directed by the “godfather of gore, “Herschell Gordon Lewis,” and is a feast of cult goodness. Today the film oozes with campiness, but when it was first released, it horrified audiences and spurred a few remakes — the 2016 Blood Feast and the cult classic, Blood Diner, in 1987. It is a huge influence on today’s splatter gore movies and a fun watch indeed.

This new high definition Blu-ray, offered by Arrow Video, is due to be released in October, 2017 and you’ll be one of the first audiences to experience it  — and on the 25 foot wall of The North Door no less. We recommend getting the Blu-ray to add to your library but more so because of the tons of extras! BUY HERE

Doors: 8pm • Blood & turkey day-themed Pre-show: 9:00-9:30pm • Movie: 9:30pm

The screening is FREE and is shown in a dark and quiet movie watching enviornment!

18+ • Food available from Pueblo Viejo Tacos (inside the venue) • Drink Specials

Sponsored by Arrow Video & shown at The North Door (Austin) 

December 12th, 2017

Also featuring Keith (Chris Makepeace from Meatballs) and AJ (Robert Rusier from A Nightmare On Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge). Vamp delivers laughs and scares with the added bonus of vampy sexy appeal.
