What’s scarier than choosing to not support the community or refusing to vote? Probably nothing, but we think watching a scary movie outside in the dark is a close second. Our Shock Cinema Series offers drive-in movies that are sure to leave you electrified and get you in the spirit of Halloween.
Austin, Texas has become a hotbed of horror cinema and it’s time to celebrate it. Shock the Vote ATX and Blumhouse Productions, the mastermind studio that brought you Get Out, Insidious, and Halloween (2018), will showcase a drive-in double feature to die for at Community First! Village!
Sinister, written by Austin’s C. Robert Cargill, and Mercy Black, written and directed by Austin’s Owen Egerton, are terrifying entries in the horror genre and sure to make your blood chill. The evening will include a special “Blumhouse Presents” pre-show reel, horror trivia with prizes from Trick or Treat Studios, and a Q&A with Egerton and Cargill, moderated by filmmakers Alex Chew and Carrie Cates.

Snag your tickets quick, because these will sell out fast, boys and ghouls. *maniacal laugh*
