Music Box of Horrors returns to The Music Box Theatre this October!

Music Box of Horrors creeps back to Chicago for its 12th Anniversary at
The Music Box Theatre.

This 24-hour marathon will run from Saturday, October 15th, through
Sunday, October 16th, 2016!

The Music Box of Horrors remains an absolute highlight on The Music Box Theatre Calendar and includes some scary surprises where only the strong survive. 

Every October, for one 24-hour period, The Music Box Theatre transforms into...the Music Box of Horrors.  The 2016 Music Box of Horrors is an unrelenting full day of scares and chills, featuring some of the most frightening and entertaining horror films around!

This year's marathon includes a plethora of fantastic programming!  Director Gary Sherman will present the ultra-rare Director's Cut of RAW MEAT.  Director Jim Muro joins The Music Box with his gross-out STREET TRASH, and a new Restoration of the silent horror SEVEN FOOTPRINTS TO SATAN with a live musical score!  Plus, 16mm prints of the demented DOCTOR BUTCHER, M.D., the erie & supernatural HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH.  The newly rediscovered EYES OF FIRE, a comedy duo tangling with Universal's iconic monsters in ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, will be featured.  Other titles to be announced!

STREET TRASH (pictured above) will be featured in this year's Music Box of Horrors along with other horrifying titles from Saturday, October 15th through Sunday, October 16th, 2016.  For further information, please visit www.musicoboxtheater.com.
