I just went to TWO movie marathons this weekend!
The first, on Friday night, Amy screened the Vengeance trilogy by PARK Chan Wook. I and another person couldn’t make it until later, so they fortunately screened Oldboy first (which we had both already seen). I then got to see Sympathy for Mister Vengeance and then Sympathy for Lady Vengeance.
Then Dave had his annual 24-hour movie marathon, from 7pm Saturday to 7pm Sunday.
The films screened were:
1. Fiend Without A Face
2. Beat Street
3. Paper House
8. 7th Voyage Of Sinbad
9. Over The Edge
11. The Slumber Party Massacre
12. Common Law Cabin
13. Fangs aka Holy Wednesday
I got there late, so arrived towards the start of Paper House. I had trouble staying awake during Bananas and 7th Voyage of Sinbad, so went home and napped; meaning I missed Over The Edge and Zombie.
I’m pretty sure I saw my first Dario Argento film (Suspiria) and my first Russ Meyer (Common Law Cabin).
For the first time ever, I guessed what one of the films was going to be before the marathon. One of the clues included Ski lift – which made me exclaim: “FROZEN! FROZEN! FROZEN Frozen Frozen! YAY!”. It’s a horror set on a ski lift. Awesome.
One of the themes that came up was horrifically injured legs. Three films in a row showed leg bone jutting out. There were other examples later on.
13 films total for the weekend. Sweet.
