Carrie
Join us for a mind-bending Opening Night of the Idaho Horror Film Festival. Best Bad Prom Costume wins a pair of VIP Passes! 

Grab your low-backed chair, or get there early and claim one of Boise Brewing's table and for just $5.00 at the door (FREE FOR IHFF PASS HOLDERS) screen one of our all-time favorites!

Carrie White may eat shit in Hell but she’ll fuck you up before she gets there. Based on Stephen King’s first novel, Brian De Palma’s adaptation is a bonafide horror classic. As social pariah Carrie White (Sissy Spacek) nears the end of her high school career she becomes more confident in her burgeoning telekinetic powers. As she faces down her school bullies and her overbearing, over-zealoted mother (Piper Laurie) she increasingly becomes a target for all those who want to control her. As prom night draws near little do all the characters know the darkness that awaits them. At once both a grisly coming of age tale and a tender look at a young woman who just wants to be accepted, Carrie remains one of the most frighteningly relatable horror films ever made.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Idaho Horror Film Festival & Humpin Hannah's present: The Rocky Horror Picture Show! This low-budget freak show/cult classic/cultural institution concerns the misadventures of Brad Majors (Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Sarandon) inside a strange mansion that they come across on a rainy night. The owner of this house is a transvestite clad in lingerie, Dr. Frank N. Furter (Curry), a mad scientist who claims to be from another planet.

But seriously, do you need a description? It’s ROCKY HORROR! THE cult classic... there is no other film quite like Rocky Horror and there never will be. This timeless film is best screened late and we’re more than happy to bring this tradition back to Humpin Hannah's!

Props: rice, toilet paper, water pistols, toast, noisemakers, cards, confetti & more sold at the door for ONLY $6! Character Costume Contest with HUGE Prizes for:

Dr. Frank N. Furter, a scientist
Janet Weiss, a heroine
Brad Majors, a hero
Riff Raff, a handyman
Magenta, a domestic
Columbia, a groupie
Dr. Everett V. Scott, a rival scientist
Rocky Horror, a creation
Meat Loaf as Eddie, an ex-delivery boy
The Criminologist, an expert

Rocky Horror is a true audience participation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props various times during the film. It is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films. Dress as one of the characters, or just in bustiers, fishnet and burlesque-type costume.

IHFF passholders get in for FREE or ONLY $5.00 at Hannah's door!
