The newest slice of sleaze from Troma premieres Midnight Friday February 10th at NYC’s Landmark Sunshine Theater. Astron-6’s twisted tale of father rape and revenge may just be another drop in the bucket of Tromatic insanity, but compared to the Sunshine’s usual mundane midnight fare of Goonies and Princess Bride – Father’s Day is gonna blow some poor NYU kids brain.
The urban legend known as ‘The Father’s Day Killer’ began some years after the demise of serial rapist/murderer Chris Fuchman. Since the 1970s, the use of contraceptives has tripled in North America alone and a generation of fathers fell asleep with the covers pulled tight, buttocks clenched. The story has become a fire-side cautionary ritual on camping trips, often used by fathers to warn their sons of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy. That deep seeded fear of penetration, violation and eventually death waned as the murder and rape of fathers continued to decline all over the world. Unfortunately those numbers didn’t remain low, and it would seem that the legend is not yet complete…Ahab, a man obsessed with exacting a brutal, violent revenge on the man who murdered his dad, joins John, an eager priest and Twink, a hot-headed street hustler on an epic quest to find and defeat this mythical monster known as Chris Fuchman AKA The Father’s Day Killer.
