GRINDHOUSE RELEASING have announced the HUDSON HORROR FILM FEST 5/22/2010 at SILVER CINEMAS SOUTH HILLS 8 in Poughkeepsie, NY. Also, there will be a TATTOO MUSIC/METAL EXPO coming up in JULY at the CHANCE THEATER as ITP will announce that later. FROM BLABBERMOUTH.NET: Legendary cult metal thrashers TOXIK return and are on the big screen, for one night only!

Hudson Horror Show Inc., in association with Grindhouse Releasing, proudly presents a one-night-only horror film festival on May 22, 2010 at the Silver Cinemas South Hills 8 in Poughkeepsie, New York. The Hudson Horror Show festival will be highlighted by an appearance of one metal's most revered cult metal acts, TOXIK.

Hailing from New York's Hudson Valley area, TOXIK released a pair of classic thinking-man's thrash metal albums in the late '80s. An upstart record label named Roadrunner Records (later home to SLIPKNOT and NICKELBACK) released the band's two astounding masterworks, 1988's "World Circus" and 1989's "Think This". Both releases saw TOXIK take the aggression and brutality of speed metal and mix it with the technicality and proficiency of progressive hard rock.

TOXIK left the Hudson Valley region and toured the United States and the world, playing shows with the likes of PANTERA, SEPULTURA, EXODUS, KING DIAMOND and others in their quest for metal ascendancy before their premature implosion in 1992.

After decades apart, TOXIK has assembled rare video footage of those classic years for its first-ever officially released DVD, "Toxik - Think Again", which will have an exclusive extended preview at Hudson Horror Show. TOXIK members Josh Christian (guitar), Tad Leger (drums) and Mike Sanders (vocals) are all tentatively scheduled to appear at the event.

The festival kicks off at approximately 12 p.m. and runs until 11 p.m. on May 22, 2010.

The screening will be held at Silver Cinemas South Hills 8, located at 1895 South Rd, Poughkeepsie, NY 12601.
