CLEVELAND -- Vampires, zombies and sharks! Oh, my!

For the third year in a row, the Capitol Theatre is hosting 12 Hours of Terror -- a horror movie marathon that splatters on the screen from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20.

"12 Hours of Terror is my favorite sleepless night," says Dave Huffman, Cleveland Cinemas Director of Marketing. "It's been a blast doing this every year at the Capitol. Our line-up of films is incredibly fun this year so people will be screaming and laughing all night long."

Guests will gaze at the screen like members of the undead as the following films flash before their tired eyes:

- "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (1974)

- "Fright Night" (1985)

- "Terror Train" (1980)

- "Slither" (2006)

- Shaun of the Dead" (2004)

The highlight is a rare screening of "Jaws 3-D" (1983). The new digital print from Universal Studios will offer fans a chance to see the flick on the big screen for the first time in nearly 30 years in its original 3-D format.

As in previous 12 Hours of Terror events, guests can anticipate a surprise mystery movie, which won't be revealed until it hits the screen.

All of the freaky features will shown in the Capitol Theatre's main auditorium with HD projection and digital sound.

Those who find themselves too scared to watch any more of the horror can climb upstairs to the "Cowards Corner" where random classic cartoons and TV shows will help them rekindle their bravery.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event. Admission includes a complimentary continental breakfast.

In between movies, door prizes like DVDs, haunted house passes and movie tickets, will be given away.

Nobody under 18 will be admitted.

The Capitol Theatre is located at 1390 West 65th Street in Cleveland.
