FRIDAY NIGHT FRIGHTS: Waxwork (director Anthony Hickox & star Deborah Foreman in person!)

“[Displays] a sincere love for the horror classics to which it pays tribute, even going so far as to shoot a Night of the Living Dead-inspired sequence in black and white to match its source material.” — Slant Magazine

Director Anthony Hickox & star Deborah Foreman (Valley Girl in person! The wax museum has always been a fertile playground for horror, and the most fevered entry in this wicked little subgenre has to be Anthony Hickox’s Waxwork, a low-budget shocker that takes the core “trapped in a wax museum” concept and breathes new life into it, pun intended. Starring Zach Galligan (Gremlins) and Deborah Foreman (Valley Girl), the film — a glorious pastiche of comedy, classic monsters and splatter — was successful enough on home video to spawn a zany, time-hopping sequel. But you aren’t stuck watching this finely crafted simulacrum at home — dust off your favorite replica and join us for a real live 35mm screening.
Dir. Anthony Hickox, 1988, 35mm, 95 min.
