THE RAY HARRYHAUSEN SUPER-8 TRIBUTE is a great way to honor the stop-motion wizard who breathed cinematic life into the gargantuan, the mythical and the extinct. Harryhausen created countless memorable big-screen moments from sword fighting skeletons to swooping pterodactyls, and from 8pm to Midnight, we will distill his entire career into an amazing show with the Super-8 sound films condensed from his films. The Super-8 sound format cuts features down to an average length of 15 minutes and Harryhausen’s films lent themselves to this format beautifully. The digest versions of the Ray Harryhausen films are cut around the animation, so there will be so many Harryhausen monsters crammed into thefour hours that is the THE RAY HARRYHAUSEN SUPER-8 TRIBUTE at HORRORHOUND WEEKEND, it will make your head spin. We will be showing the films (average length: 15 minutes) in chronological order so the line-up is: MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, IT CAME FROM BENEATH THE SEA, EARTH VS FLYING SAUCERS, 20,000,000 MILES TO EARTH, 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, MYSTERIOUS ISLAND, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, ONE MILLION YEARS BC, THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD, SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER, and a 3-reel 50-minute cut of CLASH OF THE TITANS
