They're Doing the Mash

If you want to enjoy Halloween with a movie marathon of Intergalactic Zombie Bikini Bimbo Slashers VII, I Defecate on Your Tombstone and Return of the Face Peeler then you may want to update your Netflix queue. For those of us with slightly more conventional tastes, Addison's Monster Movie Mash has lined up an assortment of frightfully fun family friendly films. Along with refreshment concessions and a costume contest, the event will screen Casper at 7 p.m. for the kids, Young Frankenstein at 9 p.m. for comedy nerds ages 8 to 80, and for fans of rock n' roll musicals or just good old fashioned cross-dressing enthusiasts there's a traditional midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show to cap off the evening We suppose it's a sexy, sexy sign of the times when a showing of Rocky Horror (what with the Transylvanian transvestite extraterrestrials, et al.) can now be described as "traditional." We blame terrorism and global warming. The Town of Addison's Monster Movie Mash runs from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday at Addison Circle Park, 4970 Addison Circle Drive. Admission is free. For details call 1-800-233-4766 or visit
Fri., Oct. 26, 7 p.m.-2 a.m., 2007
