Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly Cinemacabre screenings return to Toronto’s Bloor Theatre tonight with 1977’s Holocaust 2000. The mag describes it as an “over the top 1977 Omen rip-off [which] stars Kirk Douglas as a businessman trying to build a nuclear power plant in the Middle East. As everyone opposing the plan meets a grisly end, he suspects that his son is really the Anti-Christ trying to bring on doomsday! Tense, gory and featuring a score by Ennio Morricone, HOLOCAUST 2000 is evil… Italian-style.”

We’ll be there!

CASE 39
