Price: $8.50

Man, old-school Wes Craven was a bad dude—and the remakes of two early flicks from him can't hold a candle to the originals' brutality and disturbing nature. First up is his debut film, 1972's The Last House on the Left, the utterly harrowing tale of what happens when two young girls encounter a gang ... and what happens when the gang unknowingly enters the home of the girls' parents. Featuring some of the most sickening violence ever depicted on screen, the film was widely decried by the public but received a four-star defense from Roger Ebert and has become an acknowledged classic. Next is 1977's The Hills Have Eyes, about a family who encounters a tribe of deformed rednecks; horrible death ensues. It spawned a (disowned) sequel by Craven himself, who also co-wrote the sequel to the 2006 remake, which is borderline meta. Bring $8.50 and a strong stomach to the double feature, which starts at 7 p.m. —Zack Smith
