[ MOVIES ]
Though Monster Mania has long fed hungry horror fans in Cherry Hill, PhilaMOCA's Mausoleum Horror Convention finally delivers some frightful bites within city limits. Saturday's one-day convention follows Friday's opening reception for the Art Show of Horrors, which includes short films from the North American Tour of Terror and a screening of Maybe We Can Go to Hollywood, the documentary starring late Philly punk legend Mikey Wild featured on the cover of City Paper last week. Convention day will feature numerous vendors, Divine Hand Ensemble's mournful violins, a sex-ed comedy group and ghastly puppeteer Mr. Deadguy's (pictured) burlesque show. Two movie premieres will finish off the night: Manborg traces a cyborg's return from the grave to fight Count Draculon's Nazi demons, while Comforting Skin concerns a woman whose tattoo comes to life and seduces her.
Art Show of Horrors: Fri., June 15, 6 p.m., $7; Sun.-Tue., June 17-19, free; Mausoleum Horror Convention: Sat., June 16, 11 a.m., $7-$12, PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 267-519-9651, philamoca.org.
