  3. One directors that has a film in the lineup, one of his earlier movies featured a title that would make Leatherface proud. What is the movie title? William Girdler’s Three on a Meathook (1972).

So thank you to everyone who did send in their guesses, most of which were correct. But there can only be the 4, so here they are:

Ken Johnson, Richard Diaz, Neil Wright, and Jerry Downing

For everyone else, I hope we still see you come out for this year’s Music Box of Horrors. Not only will you have a great time, see some amazing movies on the big screen projected from real film, but you will also be showing your support to keep these kind of events running at this theater.

And did I mention that you will be able to meet Mariano Baino, the director of Dark Waters, which is being screened at 6:25pm? He will be on hand to introduce the film, a Q&A afterwards, as well as then moving out to the Music Box lounge to meet the audience and sign autographs (FOR FREE!). Severin will be on hand with copies of Dark Waters for any fans that want to pick one up. There should be some other merchandise goodies, but will be a limited quantities, so get there early! Plus, there will be plenty of other great horror vendors, food trucks, and just a lot of crazy fun. And it all starts in a little more than 24 hours. So get your pillow, get your rest, because tomorrow….the Music Box of Horrors 2017 will commence!
