Demons Invade the Knoxville Horror Film Festival Drive-In Experience

For every fest that’s gone virtual, another has parked themselves at the drive-in. Such the case with the Knoxville Horror Film Festival, which will bring a demon-themed line-up to the drive-in from Friday, October 23 through Sunday, October 25, with programming split between Maryville, Tennessee’s Parkway Drive-In, the nearby The Bird & The Book, and the festival’s home base at Central Cinema in Knoxville.

“After years hosting key screenings at a local multiplex, KHFF’s move to the Parkway is both a COVID-era safety precaution and the fulfillment of a long-term goal, reflected in a dream lineup of drive-in chillers: Friday night features Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 2 double feature of Dan O’Bannon’s Return of the Living Dead (1985) and Lamberto Bava’s Demons (1985).

“Friday night’s triple feature presentation will be rounded out by the Southeastern US Premiere of The Stylist, the debut feature from KHFF alum and collaborator Jill Gevargizian, who will be in attendance for the weekend. Heavy on both psychology and gore, The Stylist follows a disturbed hairdresser (Najarra Townsend, reprising her role from the award-winning 2016 short) as a gruesome secret life threatens her budding friendship with a client played by After Midnight’s Brea Grant. Director in attendance.

Saturday night’s closing film, meanwhile, straddles the line between premiere and throwback: abandoned in 1983 and long available only as a VHS workprint, the newly restored and completed Grizzly II: Revenge tracks the carnage at an outdoor rock show as a mama bear takes revenge for her slaughtered cubs. A nominal sequel to William Girdler’s popular 1976 B-movie Grizzly (screened at last year’s KHFF “Girdlerthon”), the film stars Raiders of the Lost Ark’s John Rhys-Davies and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’s Louise Fletcher and features pre-fame turns from Charlie Sheen, Laura Dern and George Clooney.

“Saturday night will also incorporate a special “GRINDHOUSE GRIND-IN” incarnation of KHFF’s annual Grindhouse Grind-out filmmaking contest, challenging local creatives to produce a fake movie trailer or drive-in ad based on a crazy genre prompt. This year’s competition kicks off Thursday, September 17 and spans an extended window of two weeks to encourage safe production; teams can register online for $35.

“In addition to Friday and Saturday’s drive-in programming, full passholders will have exclusive access to hours of touring & local short films as well as a live kickoff episode from local podcast Nerdy Laser. These events will be hosted at The Bird & The Book (a pub & eatery attached to Maryville’s Southland Books and video store The Dungeon) and at Central Cinema, a single-screen moviehouse just north of downtown Knoxville. (To limit venue capacity and keep things safe, the bulk of this programming will screen twice over the course of the weekend; guests will also be required to wear masks during indoor events, and should expect further safety measures as appropriate.)

“A limited number of Weekend Passes ($60) remain at Film Freeway and Knoxville Horror Film Festival, along with a handful of deluxe “R.I.P.” Passes ($90) including a KHFF 2020 shirt, priority admission to Central Cinema events and more. Standalone two-night drive-in passes ($40) will be available Friday, September 17, with single-night advance tickets to follow.”

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
