Thoroughly enjoyed James Wan's Insidious, a refreshingly non-gory horror film that mixes elements of The Exorcist, The Amityville Horror, Poltergeist, Sam Raimi and Peter Jackson into something that, if not wholly original, is certainly creative, atmospheric and genuinely creepy. Listening to Tiptoe Through the Tulips will never be the same again...

For Aussie folks in Melbourne...can't wait for this! And at the grand old art deco Astor, only 10 minutes walk from me...this screening is part of the St. Kilda Film Festival. Each state in Australia had their own Deadly Earnest on least one has passed on. The Deadly that is showing up for this event is the original Melbourne one, as played by Ralph Baker.

DRIVE IN DELIRIUM'S HORRORPALOOZA! - a selection of trailers from the 60s and 70s


SATURDAY 28 MAY 10.30PM - 12AM

He’s back! From late night Fridays, way, way, back in the 1960’s, the one and only DEADLY ERNEST, Australia’s pioneering horror host, will emerge from his creaking coffin to introduce this program of blood-drenched, flesh-filled, skull-splitting terror that’ll stand your hair on end.

Come join us for this eye-popping, jaw-dropping trip back to the gory days of big screen exploitation with the most insane horror film trailers ever to up-chuck on to the giant Astor screen!

Horrorpalooza guarantees ninety delightfully depraved minutes of non-stop violence, monsters and Scream-Queen mayhem — not to mention numerous undead armies of flesh-feasting freaks running amok.

Programmed by Mark Hartley and Jamie Blanks, the makers of Not Quite Hollywood and Urban Legend, a mind-numbing cinematic orgy you won’t want to miss!
