What’s better than a night at the movies? Why, twelve hours of horror! This was the second horrorthon I attended from Secret Sixteen, and like the one from last October, I had a great time. All six prints were in great condition. No fading, no bad sound, no big gaps missing. Many of them looked fresh, which is surprising when you consider the age of some of them. The lineup was Man’s Best Friend (1993), The Deadly Bees (1966), Anaconda (1997), The Uncanny (1977), Orca (1977), and Jaws: The Revenge (1987).

The Deadly Bees (directed by Freddie Francis) was perhaps my favorite of the six. More of a mystery/thriller than an outright horror film, but it was fun, and also cool to see footage of The Birds (with Ron Wood, pre-Rolling Stones) opening the movie with their song “That’s All I Need You For.” (MA)
