Every October, theaters around the country host horror-movie marathons that span anywhere from 24 hours to more than a week. Some, such as the one at Coolidge Corner Theatre
in Brookline, MA
, showcase time-tested classics along the lines of Nosferatu
and Bride of Frankenstein
. Others gravitate toward grindhouse schlock, ‘70s slasher flicks, or even short films produced by up-and-coming talents.
