"A worm-like parasite named Aylmer latches into Brian’s (Rock Herbst) neck and offers to inject his brain with a hallucinogenic fluid, giving him pleasurable psychedelic experiences. But the catch is, to keep the “high”, Brian has to feed Aylmer his favorite food… human brains! Directed by Frank Henenlotter (Basket Case, Frankenhooker), this amazing cult film favorite will have you screaming with laughter as you reach for your barf bag."
Brain Damage will screen on a very rare uncut 35mm print at the Northwest Horror Show.
"Banned and heavily censored throughout the world, here is a film that surpasses its reputation as a shotgun blast to the senses. Cannibal Holocaust presents the ‘found footage’ of four documentary filmmakers who experience brutal death at the hands of a savage South American tribe of flesh-eaters. The footage is so intense so graphic and so unflinching in its realism that the director and producer of Cannibal Holocaust were arrested on its original release and the film was seized.
Predating The Blair Witch Project in its use of ‘found footage’, Cannibal Holocaust also served as a key inspiration for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno. Be forewarned: This is the one that goes ALL THE WAY!"

"You’re either in or you’re in the way!" The Northwest Horror Show is proud to present the Vancouver premiere of Duke Mitchell’s long lost follow up to Massacre Mafia Style to the big screen. The story follows a group of gangsters who plan to sail to Rome to kidnap the Pope and hold him ransom for a dollar from every Catholic in the world.
“Italian-American actor and nightclub singer Duke Mitchell wrote, produced, directed and starred in this homemade answer to The Godfather, self-financed with earnings from his career as the self-proclaimed “Mr. Palm Springs.” Previously known for his Martin and Lewis act with Sammy Petrillo as seen in Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla, Duke plays the ruthless son of a Mafia kingpin who blasts his way through Hollywood on a bloody crime spree. Promising “more guts, more action, more dynamite” than the Mario Puzo
gangster classic, Massacre Mafia Style delivers an onslaught of low-budget mayhem unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”

"A psychopathic killer stalks a Boston campus, brutally slaughtering nubile young college co-eds, collecting body parts from each victim to create the likeness of his mother who he savagely murdered with an axe when he was ten years old!
Pieces is a wild, unrated gorefest, with enough splatter and sleaze to shock the most jaded horror fan."
"From legendary Italian horror master Lucio Fulci comes the ultimate classic of supernatural terror. A remote and cursed hotel, built over one of the seven gateways, becomes a yawning malevolent abyss that begins devouring both the bodies and the souls of all who enter in a graphic frenzy of gory crucifictions, chunkblowing chain-whippings, eyeball impalements, sulphuric acid meltdowns, flesh-eating tarantulas, throat-shredding demon dogs and ravenous bloodthirsty zombies. The Beyond is a towering achievement in hair-raising, mind-bending cinematic terror!"
