It’s been a long time since I attended a movie marathon, so what better way to get back into it by finally attending Nitehawk Cinema’s A Nite To Dismember? Their fifth annual Halloween fest is unlike most other marathons in that it starts at 12:00 midnight and continues from there. I’ve been to many marathons before, including a 24-hour horror marathon (which is an endurance test on another level) but it’s been a while, and I’m getting old for this. Despite seeing almost 10 hours of movies way past my bedtime, I managed to stay awake and enjoy the festivities, aided by free Jameson drinks, candy, breakfast and David Lynch coffee, which is strong and flavorful and totally a real thing. Besides the films there was a hilarious costume contest, a rambling book review of Ringu, and some really fun commentary by our hosts, who stayed up the whole night with us and seemed as excited about the experience as the audience did. The theme this year was “Haunted Library”, and so every movie was either based on a book or centered on a book.
