Chicago Friends – this weekend, THE MASSACRE (Chicago’s original 24-hour horror film event) returns to THE PATIO THEATER for a full cycle of monstrous goodness just in-time for Halloween! Kicking off with a short film program at 11:15am on Saturday, October 17, the feature-length goodness runs from noon-noon, with “survivors” being counted on Sunday – those brave enough to make it through the full 24 hours. There’s some Rock Father Favorites in the mix this year including GREMLINS 2, George A. Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD, THEY LIVE and CHRISTINE. Check out the full lineup below, or grab your tickets now for just $20 via Brown Paper Tickets.
