It's Friday the 13th. To make matters worse it’s the Friday the 13th two weeks before Halloween. This means every enterprising event promoter, gallery owner, theater manager and wanna-be goth has come up with a half-assed entertainment venture with some thuddingly obvious Halloween tie-in. Here are a few things you can do tonight that'll probably suck less than sucking on the business end of Satan's pitchfork.

Creeper Double Feature
WHAT: To gear up for the Chainsaw horror movie awards, which happen on Sunday, Oct. 15, Fuse & Fangoria are screening a double feature: Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street at the Vista Theatre in Silver Lake. If you RSVP by emailing, you'll get in for FREE, which includes free popcorn, soda/pop and drinks (while supplies last). There will also be ticket giveaways for the Chainsaw Awards.
WHEN: Friday, Oct. 13 @ 8pm
WHERE: Vista Theatre
4473 Sunset Dr.
Los Angeles, CA 90027

A Ghoula-A Gala
WHAT: L.A.C.E. Productions presents a late-night screening of the 1959 Horror classic House on Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price and presented with the amazing wonder Emergo, where the thrills fly right off the screen. The film will be preceded by live entertainment including the dancing "Skele-rinas" of Caitlyn Carradine, the alchemy of Eli Presser and the eerie vibes of vibraphone virtuoso Nick Mancini.
WHEN: Friday, Oct. 13 @ 11:30pm
WHERE: Regent Showcase Theater, 614 N. La Brea Ave.
COST: All seats $13. (Note: All profits will go to the restoration of one of the world famous Ennis House, which was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is featured in House on Haunted Hill as the title character).
