When concert promoter Tim Sweeney discovered that the staff of Boulevard Drive-In (1051 Merriam Lane in Kansas City, Kansas, 913-262-2414) had yet to plan any horror-movie events during the Halloween season, he contacted Brian Neal (grandson of Boulevard Drive-In owner Wes Neal) about the possibilities. And then what started as a simple movie marathon turned into a two-night carnival of lost souls titled, "It Came From the Drive-In ... Horror on the Boulevard." On both nights, attendees are treated to the triple threat A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Army of Darkness. Also on the bill:a performance by the Haunted Creepys and a wide assortment of vendors and horror personalities, including Allan Kayser of cult hit Night of the Creeps; Stink-O-Rama's Uncle Roy Hoskins; and the original Jason Voorhees, Ari Lehman (who on Saturday performs with his band, First Jason). For the nearly 10 hours of rock, revelry and repugnance, the cost is $20 per car — with no limit on the number of bodies inside. Gates open at 5 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Saturday.

Price: $20 per car
