Junk Food Dinner presents: BEYOND DREAM’S DOOR
dir. Jay Woelfel, 1989
Ben Dobbs (Nick Baldasare) hasn’t been sleeping well lately. Or, maybe, he has. Not prone to dreaming, Ben has recently fallen victim to a series of interweaving nightmares and it’s become harder and harder to tell dreams from reality. His attempts to uncover the source have only led to more questions and mysterious disappearances. Until he discovers a book with information that may help him. Unfortunately for Ben, the nightmares know he found the book and now they want out.

PSYCHOS IN LOVE
dir. Gorman Bechard, 1987
USA, 88 mins.
Joe, the owner of a strip club (Carmine Capobianco) and Kate, a manicurist (the lovely Debi Thibeault) fall in love with the revelation that they are both serial killers, but as the body count rises, a cannibalistic plumber tries to throw a wrench in their plans. Add on a brief musical number, some highly misguided product placement, total disregard for the 4th wall, and a torrential downpour of blood and you have the first of three films (along with GALACTIC GIGOLO and CEMETERY HIGH) pairing director Gorman Bechard and writer/actor Carmine Capobianco, 1987’s Psychos In Love is the definitive romantic-comedy for people who mostly like slasher films.
No grapes allowed.

A stand out splinter of bone-chilling terror from last years SPECTOBER program, we couldn’t resist bringing this classic back out one more time this year.
Lunchmeat VHS Fanzine presents: THE UNDERTAKER AND HIS PALS
Dir. T.L.P Swicegood, 1966
USA, 63 minutes
Two degenerate café owners cook up a depraved alliance with a demented Undertaker and run amok through town on their motorcycles, hacking up hot dames and cleaving craniums. Select portions of the corpses are served up as daily specials at the café and The Undertaker gets to bury the leftovers. But when a pair of local detectives smell something fishy afoot, the trio’s reign of terror runs into some trouble.
One of LUNCHMEAT Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Josh Schafer’s all-time favorite flicks, this pioneering pitch black comedy is a kitschy slice of pure drive-in delirium that plants its tongue firmly in cheek, then bites it off and spits it out onto a sizzling hot plate ready for you to enjoy. Once you’ve ingested the wacky slab o’ cinema cheeze that is Undertaker and His Pals, you’ll never get the taste out of your mouth! Dig it!

In EnglishBEWARE THE DEMON FORCES OF THE…BLOOD BEASTS
A young family moves from their cramped New York City apartment to a spacious new home in New England. But this is no ordinary house in the country: the previous owner was the deranged Dr. Freudstein, whose monstrous human experiments have left a legacy of bloody mayhem. Now, someone – or something – is alive in the basement, and home sweet home is about to become a horrific hell on earth. The third installment of Fulci’s Gates of Hell trilogy (after City of the Living Dead and The Beyond) includes buckets of blood and gore, beheadings, creepy kids, ripped throats, a killer with maggots for blood, and giallo queen Dagmar Lassander. Fulci completely abandons traditional horror movie logic, and comes up with something nightmarish and truly bizarre. Twitch Film said that The House by the Cemetery is truly made to be seen in a crowd – take this opportunity to soak up the insanity in a group!
