Let's say you got the opportunity to operate a Dusk-till-Dawn horror movie fest at the local Drive-In theater, what movies would you pick? I think my lineup would go something like this:
  • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM: A Nightmare on Elm Street
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM: Halloween
  • 10:00 PM - 12:00 AM: House of 1000 Corpses
  • 12:00 AM - 2:00 AM: Evil Dead
  • 2:00 AM - 4:00 AM: An American Werewolf in London
  • 4:00 AM - 6:00 AM: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

So, list your picks already! :D

From Dusk Till Dawn. (It seems appropriate for said theme.) 6:00 PM-8:00 PM
Re-Animator. 8:00 PM-10:00 PM
The Howling. 10:00 PM-12:00 AM
In the Mouth of Madness. 12:00 AM-2:00 AM
Alien 2:00 AM-4:00 AM
Dawn of the Dead. (either version) 4:00 AM-6:00 AM

That would just about cap it. I could easily do a second, third or fourth list.

Oh man, if you're doing Friday 3, it's gotta be in 3D! While you're at it, might as well do the Friday the 13th 3D Drinking Game I concocted a while back.

I like the inclusion of Horror trailers too. Good way to fill time while the films are switched out.

Thank you. And do you have any idea how long it takes for drive-in people to set up the next movie in a marathon? I've never actually been to a drive-in before so I just assumed it could take between 7 and 10 minutes... even if they had to hurry.

Actually, I don't think it takes any time at all. I was at a drive-in last summer for a double feature (Open Water and Bourne Supermacy) and the second movie started almost immediately after the first was over.

But, doing trailers give people an opportunity to get snacks between pictures. :D

And the movies don't have to end at 5:30, that's actually where I designed the trailers to go because I'm running the Drive-In. But of course like anything I'm into the learning experience, all I have right now are ideas. So then the trailers could be doubled up on and get at least 2 trailers inbetween the movies, whole bunch after all seven movies. And in the space between each movie, there would still be time between the trailers to show ads or commercials for the theater snacks or whathaveyou. Nothing more important also than running a toothpaste ad. Ha ha.

Hmm .. this is a good one. I would have to choose:

Night of the living Dead - original
Dawn of the Dead
Hellraiser (any of them up to Inferno)
28 Days later
Anguish - cheesy but not to bad
Nightmare on Elm Street

That's just to name a few I could pick .. though the list could be endless :D
