Comfort Film Halloween: ALIEN ZONE AKA HOUSE of the DEAD (1978)

  • Comfort Station 2579 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Comfort Film Halloween 2018.

All of October we feature films just for Halloween curated by Paul Freitag-Fey with films provided by the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA)!

Directed by TV veteran Sharron Miller (“Cagney & Lacey”, “L.A. Law”), this low-budget Oklahoman horror anthology features ghoulish vignettes ranging from wryly comedic to genuinely grim and unsettling.

Four tales of intrigue and horror await anyone brave enough to enter the House of the Dead…

When a philandering husband is lost during a rainstorm, he’s taken in by an elderly mortician and is forced to learn the ghastly origins of four freshly arrived corpses: a scornful teacher whose students teach her a fatal lesson, an amateur filmmaker with a deadly muse, two dueling detectives attempting to solve a mysterious murder, and a bitter man whose arrogance costs him everything…

Runtime: 80mins
Media: Digital Projection

We would like to thank AGFA for providing the films for October.

Programmed by Raul Benitez and Nando Espinosa Herrera.
