Eye Horror Marathon

To mark 75 years of Eye, Koolhoven & Simons present a night-long marathon of sophisticated horror films about eyes: the Eye Horror Marathon. Eyes Without a Face, Eyes in the Labyrinth and Eyes of Laura Mars will be screened on vintage 35mm, as well as a restored version of The Hills Have Eyes. Ticket sale starts at September 17!

poster Koolhoven & Simons: Eye Horror Marathon
Martin Koolhoven: “Wow. Ronald Simons and I have done a lot of things in Eye, but never a film marathon before. And what a marathon! Starting with a French body horror classic (Eyes Without a Face), then a great giallo from Italy (Eye in the Labyrinth), followed by Faye Dunaway’s chilling visions of what a serial killer has been up to (Eyes of Laura Mars), based on a script by John Carpenter, and finally Wes Craven’s cult classic about a family of cannibals (The Hills Have Eyes). All woven together by Ronald and me with chat and clips focusing on eyes. A real feast for all film-lovers. We’ll sleep when we’re dead!”

Part of

Koolhoven & Simons

Koolhoven and Simons are back! As ever, they will be scrutinizing the genre film, presenting films within pretty forthright themes that have never before been screened at Eye. Expect evenings on Trucker, Grindhouse or Revenge of Nature films. A tribute to rarely screened trailers and forgotten classics, where possible in 35mm, using films from Eye’s collection.
