Now that fall is truly in the air here in Houston, it's time to get in the Halloween spirit as well. To that end, you should drag your bones down to the Edwards Marq*E for Horrorthon 2018.
Director Mick Garris will be the guest of honor this Sunday (October 21), and will be hosting a screening of Critters 2:The Main Course, with a pre-screening Q&A at 7 PM, followed by a "secret" screening at 10 PM. Several episodes of the Showtime series Masters of Horror will also be aired, and Friday the 13th's Ari Lehman will be on hand as well.
