Dec 31, 1969 @ 7:00 pm| Free
Join us at Videology the first Friday of every month for Videology First Frightdays, bringing you the best of horror and the worst of horror (show up and find out which one)! This month we’re teaming up with NYC Grindhouse for extra terror (and fun!).
Hey all you dirty scumbags. Guess what? It’s that time of the month again. No, not THAT time of the month — yuck! It’s time for our new monthly GRINDHOUSE / HORROR Double-Feature!
Since so many of you have No Idea what GRINDHOUSE is, and have never seen a real Grindhouse film, like Frank, Washington, BigMoe, Nick, Diane, and many more, we figured we’d edukate you with this Excellent Documentary on the history of American Grindhouse, narrated by Academy Award nominated Robert Forster, including Awesome interviews from John Landis, Herschell Gordon Lewis, Fred Williamson, Larry Cohen, & William Lustig (among many others).
We’ll be following American Grindhouse with the 1981 Cronenberg classic, SCANNERS, starring Michael Ironside.
Scanners are people with unusual telepathic and telekinetic powers. ConSec, a purveyor of weaponry and security systems searches out scanners to use them for its own purposes. The film’s plot concerns the attempt by Darryl Revok, a renegade scanner, to wage a war against ConSec. Another scanner, Cameron Vale, is dispatched by ConSec to stop Revok.
