Welcome to Coolasscinema.com! This is a site dedicated to the propagation of strange and exciting cinema (and television) from all over the world as well as America's own grand tradition of exploitation cinema classics. From the front (and back) seats of drive in's across the nation, to the sleaze pit theaters of New York's famed 42nd street, to the comforts of home watching fantastic cinema on the Late Show, remember those classic (and sometimes classless) films of old and even discover some new ones.
Listen up you primitive screw heads! The greatest horror and
exploitation film festival in the Hudson
Valley, Hudson Horror Show, returns to
the famed Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie,
New York on Saturday, June 8th,
2013! This show is lucky number seven and it will feature five full
length classic genre films along with shorts and drive in style trailers, all
of rare 35mm film prints!
AdvanceTickets are on sale now and are only $26.00 via PayPal.
Advance ticket holders save money and will be admitted first. If any
tickets remain they will be available at the door on the day of the show for
$30.00, cash only.
As the saying goes, either you are in, or you are in the way! Well, Pope Benedict is out and in his honor
we are proud to present the Hudson Valley Premiere screening of GONE WITH THE POPE! Duke Mitchell, who directed and starred
in the legendary Massacre Mafia Style, also stars and directs this similarly
themed but seldom screened exploitation flick.
The film was thought to be “lost” as it was made in the 70’s, but not
released until 2010! The discovered film
was put together by the great folks at Grindhouse Releasing (including Academy
Award winner Bob Murawski) and garnered rave reviews. This screening will be the first time Gone
With The Pope has ever played in the Hudson Valley.
Reaction to the trailer at our last show was so over whelming, we had to
find the full length feature of the monster movie classic, INFRA-MAN!
Starring Danny Lee from John Woo’s The Killer and featuring a pack of Asian
monsters that specialize in Kung Fu, INFRA-MAN (also known as Super Infra-Man)
is a 70’s drive in schlocktacular from the legendary Shaw Brothers. OK,
maybe it’s not a classic, but I guarantee you that you will be entertained by
the sheer insanity of it all!
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D recently made
the rounds in all its modern glory, so in its wake, Hudson Horror is proud to
present the very best of the TCM sequels, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2!
Starring Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper and cult
film legend Bill Moseley as “Chop Top”, TCM2 is by far the most beloved of the
Chainsaw sequels and reinventions. Who would want to miss the chainsaw
duel between Dennis Hopper and Leatherface? Be sure to be at Hudson
Horror 7 to view a rare screening of this unrated 35mm print.
Speaking of reboots, the Evil Dead remake is almost upon us. While
this new Evil Dead doesn’t feature an “Ash”, we can revel in the insanity of
Bruce Campbell’s biggest battle against the Deadites in ARMY OF DARKNESS!
I’m sure many Hudson Horror devotees didn’t catch the final entry in the
original Evil Dead trilogy theatrically in 1993 and as such we are overjoyed to
present this 20th Anniversary screening of Sam Raimi’s ARMY OF
In addition to the films above, we’ll have a fifth “MYSTERY MOVIE”. What could
it be? An 80’s slasher? A slice of 70’s sleaze? How about a Hammer flick? Be there and find out! Besides the five movies, we’ll be showing vintage drive in trailers, we’ll
have vendors selling horror merchandise, and there will be door prizes, trivia
contests and so much more. If you are interested in selling or promoting
your wares, or if you just have questions regarding our show, send us an email
your tickets now and watch our website and Facebook
pages for more announcements. We’ll see you on June 8, 2013 for Hudson
Horror Show 7!

I've been a huge movie buff since childhood catching old horror and monster flicks on Shock Theater and kung fu movies at the drive-in during the late 70's and early 80's. I've had a long time fascination with, and appreciate all genres of fantastic cinema, good and bad. One fans cheese is another fans juicy steak. I like both equally and seldom find a film I truly dislike as I will find something of interest in just about anything. The bulk of the films or tv series' seen here are mostly from my childhood, or films I own in what has become an Amazing Colossal DVD collection.
