Lethal Ladies of Horror

You can’t keep a lethal lady down. Flicks for Fans and Arrow in the Head, the team behind last year’s Evil Dead Fest, are proud to present the resurrection of the all new Lethal Ladies of Horror Film Festival Saturday, 29 March, 2014 at the famed art deco-themed 1940s built Crest Theatre in Westwood, CA. This will be an amazing event for all film fans and those with an appreciation for strong roles by women in horror. As always Flicks for Fans will have much for fans who attend the fest including great concession specials, cool Lethal Ladies themed décor and even rare trailers and ads – it’s going to be a night to remember.

Beginning the evening will be Sam Raimi’s horror classic Drag Me To Hell with a special Q&A appearance by evil gypsy woman Lorna Raver. Next up, fans of Night of the Comet will be in for a treat with lethal ladies Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelli Maroney in attendance to represent the ’80s classic for a special 30th Anniversary screening in 35mm.

Finally, Flicks for Fans is proud to not only present a big screen presentation of the John Carpenter classic Christine, but there will also be a special viewing of Christineherself – the 1958 Plymouth Fury. This is one of only two cars left in existence that was actually used in the film and it will be on display for fans to enjoy. Plus as a bonus we will have various cast and crew from Christine in house as well for a Q&A after the show.

Flicks for Fans is once again teaming up with iconic horror site Arrow in the Head for this fest and Arrow writer James “Jimmy O” Oster will again host and moderate the event.

Cost: $30 General Admission / $25.50 Student & SAG-AFTRA Members.

The Festival is on the same weekend as Monsterpalooza so fans from out of town could hit that event during the day Saturday and Lethal Ladies at night for a perfect day (pizza and Elvira sodas will be served!).

The Crest Theater is located at 1262 Westwood Blvd, Westwood, CA 90024.

Tickets are on-sale at the Crest Box Office or online at www.crestwestwood.com.
