“The only thing more terrifying than the last 12 minutes of this film are the first 92.” – SUSPIRIA

If you think of your favourite classic horror films, it’s likely that you can still recall their promotional trailers and infamous taglines.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is continuing its residency at the Metrograph Theatre in New York City this year with upcoming programming showcasing high quality film prints from the Academy Film Archive.

Just in time for Halloween, The Academy presents “It Came From the Vaults,” a unique program of classic 35mm horror trailers and advertising materials. Introduced by Rue Morgue’s Online Head Writer Michael Gingold, the program will include trailers from horror classics such as SUSPIRIA, PSYCHO, SCREAM, and more.

“It Came From the Vaults” will immediately be followed by a tribute to George A. Romero, where guests can experience a special screening of Romero’s science fiction-horror-action film THE CRAZIES.
