Classic Horror Films Event

What do Hilary Swank, Angela Bassett, Winona Ryder, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Cameron Diaz have in common with Donald Sutherland, Don Rickles, Anthony Hopkins, Jack Nicholson, and Tom Waits? They were all on-screen in six films at our Classic Horror Films Party, along with an international host of vampires, werewolves, ancient relics, and human monsters. “The Classic Horror Films, Part 16: Back to Basics: 1992-1995” was held Saturday, November 3, 2007, from 1:00 p.m. to midnight at the Holiday Inn Select International Airport—Mall of America. As always, the event was free and open to the public. This event was the 16th in our annual fall Classic Horror Films Party series, which surveys the history of the classic tradition in horror films, complete with refreshments and liner notes about films viewed.
