This month’s guest performer: Sketch comedy duo Teenager of the Year

This month’s movie: From Beyond (1986)

After my screening of Dagon back in August, someone asked me if I’d seen From Beyond, another H. P. Lovecraft adaptation from Stuart Gordon, director of both Dagon and Re-Animator.

Hoff's Horrorfest Presents: Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight

Hoff’s Horrorfest is a monthly show featuring stand-up comedy from host Hoff Matthews and a guest performer, followed by a horror movie screening. This month’s installment will be at Videology (308 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn) at 7pm, Saturday, January 16th. It’s free!

This month’s guest performer: Evan Williams (Carolines Breakout Artist Series)

This month’s movie: Tales From the Crypt: Demon Knight (1995)

The recent news that M. Night Shyamalan will be bringing Tales From the Crypt back to television has me feeling a bit nostalgic–not for the old HBO show, which I haven’t actually seen much of, but for the original ’50s comic books, which my dad introduced me to via reprints when I was a kid. I never got much into superheroes, but I wasted plenty of my precious youth soaking up EC Comics‘ blend of O. Henry-style plot twists, Eisenhower-era cynicism and graphic gore. Read more…

This month’s movies: V/H/S (2012) and a surprise 2nd film to be revealed at the show!

A lot of people celebrate the Halloween season by watching horror movies. So how does a year-round horror movie screening show celebrate the Halloween season? That’s right: More horror movies. Two, to be precise. It’s the October Double Header!

First up we’ll have stand-up from Katie Hannigan, followed by the awesome 2012 found footage anthology V/H/S. Then around midnight we’ll have some more comedy from Zane Golia and reveal the second film of the night, which will remain a surprise spooky mystery secret until then.

It’s Halloween! Let’s watch some scary movies! See you on the 23rd!

–Hoff
