Ace Hotel x DCAP MEDIA present Persistence of Vision featuring Creepy Fest's Bill Heintz 

A three-day horror film experience. Day 3:

SUNDAY 8/25 | 11AM - 2AM
THEME: MODERN GOTHIC
Things can go from innocuous to bloodcurdling at breakneck speed, can’t they? Take a stroll down Elm Street during our finale and remember why this is America.

Scooby-Doo series (Joe Ruby & Ken Spears) 11:00am-11:10am   Modern Gothic: Suburban Mysteries | This animated mystery classic was originally broadcast on CBS from 1969 to 1976, and featured four groovy teenagers and a talking Great Dane named Scooby-Doo.
Beloved Popcorn Reading, Feat. Too Trill Trivia's Terri Simon & Special Guests 11:10am-11:30am   Modern Gothic: More Morrison | What better way to recognize and celebrate the life and work of Toni Morrison than by reading the beginning of her Pulitzer-winning 1987 novel, Beloved, a modern Gothic ghost story set in the 1860s.
Blood Runs Down (Dir. Zandashé Brown) - REPEAT SCREENING 11:30am-11:45am   Modern Gothic: Mother Knows Best | When a woman undergoes a frightening transition, her vigilant daughter must decide between saving her or protecting herself. This horror short had its premiere at the 2018 Overlook Film Festival.
A Quiet Place (Dir. John Krasinski) 11:45am-1:20pm   Modern Gothic: Best Dad Dundie | A far cry from his days as a reluctant paper salesman on comedy series The Office, Krasinski showcases his directing & acting talents in this post-apocalyptic horror film where a family of four navigate their lives in silence while trying to avoid being killed by mysterious creatures that hunt by sound.
Vampire's Kiss (Dir. Robert Bierman) with Live Commentary, Feat. Too Trill Trivia's Terri Simon & Special Guests 1:20pm-3:05pm   Modern Gothic: Trash Men | This 1989 dark comedy stars Nicolas Cage as Peter, a greedy lothario who is convinced he is a vampire. Although no one shares his point of view and he hasn't changed physically, he dons fake fangs and begins stalking women. Sounds like a catch.
Lair of the White Worm (Dir. Ken Russell) 3:05pm-4:45pm   Modern Gothic: I'm On Drugs | This 1988 British horror film is based loosely on the Bram Stoker novel of the same name, and features the sensual Lady Sylvia, an immortal priestess on a mission to bag another sacrifice for her beloved snake-god, who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Director Ken Russell's disorienting surrealist-collage effect throughout the film will have you feeling like you dropped some acid, tbh.
Horror of Dracula (Dir. Terence Fisher) 4:45pm-6:10pm   Modern Gothic: Bitter Bloodsuckers | Unlike the 1931 original, this 1958 British remake doesn't star film icon Bela Lugosi, but it was released in the U.S. on a double feature with the Universal film The Thing That Couldn't Die. That's a freebie for horror trivia (it will come in handy later).
Bride of Frankenstein (Dir. James Whale) 6:10pm-7:30pm   Modern Gothic: I Can't Make You Love Me | Did you ever try to make your heart feel something it won't? The Bride understands. Widely regarded as one of the greatest sequels in cinematic history, this 1935 science-fiction horrof classic begins where the 1931 hit Frankenstein left off, and has inspired a legion of homages.
Horror Trivia with Terri & Zandashé: Vampire Olympics Lightning Round 7:30pm-8:10pm   This is your last chance to win a limited-edition, official Persistence of Vision t-shirt, which would obviously make you better than everyone else. Show off your trivia skills to claim this wardrobe upgrade and other awesome prizes. Will you take home the coveted Ghoulish Gold Medal?
The Exorcist (Dir. William Friedkin) 8:10pm-10:15pm   Modern Gothic: Don't Talk To Strangers | We tried thinking of some clever demon puns, but so far nothing is ringing a Belphegor. Hopefully this terrifying masterpiece starring a headspinning 'tween gives you enough entertainment.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (Dir. Wes Craven) 10:15pm-11:55pm   Modern Gothic: The Boogeyman | One, two, Freddy's coming for you.

Three, four, better lock your door.

Five, six, grab a crucifix.

Seven, eight, gonna stay up late.

Nine, ten, never sleep again....
Friday the 13th (Dir. Sean S. Cunningham) 12:00am-1:35am   Modern Gothic: Helicopter Parenting | This 1980 slasher flick is our finale, and also a cautionary tale for parents who force their children to live out their personal agendas. Don't be like Pamela Voorhees; the world has enough Jasons.

 

Watch movies and stay the night. We have the comfiest beds around. https://www.acehotel.com/neworleans/reservations/promo-code/SHOWATACE/
