HEY FOLKS! Join the Music Box Massacre Facebook Fan group here!
This hideous, early-90s looking site is a simple information repository for fans of the Movieside Massacre, an annual 24-hour horror movie marathon presented in Chicago by Movieside Film Festival and held at The Music Box Theatre.
Please note that I am not affiliated or employed by either Movieside or the Music Box, I'm just a big nerd who wanted to have this information on hand. Special thanks to Rusty Nails for providing images and artwork, though!
I'm also going to include info for the Sci-Fi Spectacular and the Terror in the Aisles events. Unless otherwise noted, all events took place at the Music Box Theatre (3733 N. Southport, Chicago, IL).
All events are hosted by Rusty Nails and a variety of rotating assistants including Count Midnight, Dr. AC, and representatives of various charities for which the events have auctions (such as Vital Bridges).
