Master of Horror John Carpenter Will Be Celebrated at Inaugural Event

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Popcorn Frights is proud to announce its inaugural Wicked Weekend event celebrating the Master of Horror John Carpenter. From October 4-7, 2018, four of John Carpenter’s iconic genre films will be presented featuring special immersive theater performances and surprise giveaways.

Popcorn Frights Wicked Weekend will open with a newly restored 40th-anniversary presentation of Halloween on Thursday, October 4, and continue for the next three nights with special presentations of Christine for its 35th-anniversary, a new restoration of The Thing, and They Live for its 30th-anniversary.

All screenings will take place exclusively at the historic Savor Cinema theater, a South Florida landmark that in the 1940s was a Methodist Church.

Wicked Weekend is a new annual event hosted by Popcorn Frights shining a spotlight on a legendary genre figure. This year marks the perfect occasion to honor John Carpenter, not only as he recently celebrated a 70th birthday, but because of the worldwide excitement surrounding the release of the new Halloween sequel which he is producing and composing new original music for.

About Chewie

Chewie
I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
