Two Awesome Nights Of Horror Movies At Illinois Drive-Ins
It's only the middle of September but some local drive-ins are getting into the Halloween spirit a little early.
Both the Midway Drive-in and the McHenry Drive-in will be playing some spooky stuff. The Midway is doing their annual Dusk Till Dawn Horrorfest with a Quadruple Feature of classic horror movies and McHenry will have LIVE organ accompaniment with their films.
Here's what's playing in the stateline:
Midway Drive-In, Sterling, IL
The Midway Horrorfest will only be shown on Saturday, Sep. 18th and will have a special adult admission of $20. Also Manson Brothers stars Chris Margetis and Mike Carey will be appearing in person, as well as vendors selling horror movie themed items. It's a great time and a bucket list item if you're into the classic horror movie scene. Their 4-movie line up includes:
The Manson Brothers Midnight Zombie Massacre
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Silent Night, Deadly Night
I would laugh at this and still not be able to sleep.

This entire movie is on YouTube. I couldn't find a trailer so I was going to just link the entire movie right here. Then I looked quickly through the movie and it's basically soft core porn. I don't think I should post that here. Search YouTube if that is something that would interest you.
McHenry Drive-In, McHenry, IL
Here is the latest post from the McHenry Drive-in Facebook page.
That's right, live organ music being played along with two classic old horror movies.
Friday night it will be Phantom of the Opera with Lon Chaney from 1925. Here's the whole movie. Not nearly as cool without the live organ.
Then on Saturday they will be playing Nosferatu.
Two nights of silent horror movie films with live organ accompaniment. What a great event.
Those are your two choices to scare yourself silly. Good luck sleeping.
