Allhallows Eve is still a week and a half away, but you can avoid the last-minute holiday rush and get your adrenaline pumping now, as Horror Remix Presents ... Halloween
. Revel in two hours of terror featuring a trash trio from 1988: Hack-O-Lantern
, Night of the Demons
and Hollow Gate
. How bad are they? The first was released only in West Germany yet has four alternate titles; the second was also released in West Germany but only on video; and the third is the lone film credit of writer-director Ray Di Zazzo. (Apparently it was the story he was born to tell, and then, G'night, everybody!
) Presided over by puppet MCs Cheesecake and Thunderclap, the campy, gory, disturbingly entertaining remix gets under way at 10 p.m. at Screenland Armour (408 Armour, 816-421-9700). Admission is free. For more information, see horrorremix.com
