Our Halloween month of classic horror continues as one of our all-time favorite monsters makes a triumphant return with a tweetalong to the Universal horror classics THE CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON and REVENGE OF THE CREATURE!
#driveinmob Has Nerves of Steele with Nightmare Castle and Black Sunday
We’re kicking off October with a live tweet night of gothic horror from Italy featuring British horror queen Barbara Steel! First up is Mario Bava’s groundbreaking classic BLACK SUNDAY, followed by NIGHTMARE CASTLE, directed by Mario Caiano, who passed away last week.
The live tweet crews from Trash Tuesday, #Bond_age_, The Drive-In Mob and #TCMParty are forming a supergroup to celebrate Back to the Future Day on October 21st, 2015 — the day Marty McFly goes…TO THE FUTURE! For all live tweet events, we will use the hashtag #TheFutureIsNow. Each organization might tack on their respective traditional hashtag as necessary. It’s a Twitter takeover!
Trash Tuesday hosts “Trash-Time Continuum” featuring Back to the Future.
#Bond_age_ hosts a double feature of Back to the Future II and AUSTIN POWERS
The Drive-In Mob hosts a double feature of Back to the Future III and Frankenstein Unbound.
The popcorn is in the lobby and the nuts are on the screen tonight as we ride along for Hal Needham’s daffy all-star road race comedies!

#DriveInMob Draws on Lee Van Cleef with THE BIG GUNDOWN
Due to a crazy schedule, and @culturalguter’s TIFF MIDNIGHT MADNESS BLOG duties, we’re only doing one film tonight and bringing back Mob favorite Lee Van Cleef in one of the best regarded non-Leone spaghetti westerns, directed by Sergio Sollima. Also starring familiar spaghetti western star Tomas Milian. The Morricone score is one of his all-time best! We’ll be watching the full version that mixes the English and Italian dub, so do not panic when some scenes briefly switch to Italian!
#driveinmob unleashes The Psychotronic Man
Due to some website disasters and personal issues, and @culturalguter’s TIFF MIDNIGHT MADNESS BLOG duties, we’re only doing one film tonight as @PsychotronicDB basks in the warm glow of his namesake movie, wherein Chicago barber Rocky Foscoe discovers he has uncanny abilities to kill people with his mind!
#driveinmob Remembers Dean Jones & Wes Craven!
Tonight join the Mob as we pay tribute to actor Dean Jones and director/writer/producer Wes Craven in an evening of crime and crime-prevention. First up, we learn about law and shape-shifting from Jones in The Shaggy D.A. (1976) and then we journey to a post-atomic wasteland full of ne’er-do-wells in The Hills Have Eyes (1977)!
