Why do people keep making movies about Marvel super-heroes when the best one already exists? A maniacal psychopath known as Spider-Man is on a crime spree. He steals golden statues, attacks strippers in strip clubs, and murders people with shower nozzles, speedboat motors, and guinea pigs. In addition, Spider-Man’s bushy eyebrows pop through his mask-holes and he prefers a switchblade over web-shooters. Naturally, the legendary super-hero team of Captain America and El Santo are called in to take care of business. AND THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS. Upside down drop kicks in karate dojos! Fistfights on top of speeding cars! Spider-Man’s ability to clone himself at will (and often)! With non-stop fights and a total disregard for logic, this movie illustrates the proper way to realize the dreams of a thirteen-year-old without spending two hundred bazillion dollars doing it. At one point, Spider-Man and his girlfriend make love through his costume. Three puppets show up and start laughing. By the way, this movie is Turkish. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

VIDEO VORTEX unearths and celebrates ultra-obscure, ultra-bizarre movies from the fringes of the universe. And beyond. Projected from VHS tapes that play through a VCR on stage, every movie is carefully curated to potentially be the greatest thing that you’ve never seen. This is 100% pure analog beauty, blown up on the big screen and ready to melt your brain. Horror! Comedy! Action! Computers! Gore! Rap! Nerds! Turkish people dressing up like superheroes! This is the surreal, hilarious, and singular experience that VIDEO VORTEX delivers.
Michael owns the Star Body Health Spa. It’s a very futuristic place, because “the computer runs the spa.” Years earlier, Michael’s wheelchair-bound wife died in an inferno. Today, the spa is plagued by an unseen supernatural force, which causes graphic gore, full-frontal nudity, and leotards to erupt in flames. A guy’s face falls off while making out with a girl. Another guy gets ripped apart by a workout machine. A girl BLOWS UP while staring at a mirror. Questions arise. Why was Michael’s new girlfriend burned by the steam room, and why is she the only person who wears bandages for the entire film? Clearly, other people have sustained injuries that also require bandages. The detective asks, “How does a goddamn diving board just COME LOOSE?,” after a girl dies because of a faulty diving board. During a costume party at the spa, Michael is besieged with paranormal researchers and an in-law with a secret. A female detective says, “Aw, fuck this computer shit!” But you won’t say that. Because DEATH SPA is the irrational, workout-themed NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET rip-off that you’ve been waiting your whole life to see. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
Tickets only $1! Hosted by Matt Desiderio (Horror Boobs).

A little more info on the film…
LUCKY BASTARD is the found-footage story of a pornographic website that sponsors a contest for its subscribers—a contest in which the prize is having sex with a porn star. The entire film is shot from the point of view of the website’s cameras recording the on-screen and behind-the-scenes action.At the center of the story are: porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting subscriber who wins the contest. The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions; now he shoots the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, his most popular performer, initially refuses to participate. She dismisses the contest as “sick,” knowing that the winner will eventually be humiliated by the experience. Ashley views herself as an entertainer supporting her two children; the contest is nothing she would call “adult entertainment.” Nevertheless, she gives in to Mike. The young contest winner, Dave G., quickly discovers himself to be a pawn in a game of commerce. When, as Ashley predicted, he becomes humiliated, his personality is transformed and he seeks revenge on his tormentors. In this world, where everyone is safe within its borders, an outsider poses the ultimate danger. Those who humiliated him will discover that humiliation as entertainment, now an American pastime, has consequences they could never have expected.
As a guy who managed an Adult Video store for 5 years, who also just so happens to be a huge horror fan, you can understand why this film speaks to me. I’m excited, to say the least!
Lucky Bastard is only playing for one week at the Cinema Village so make sure you mark your calendars!
Feb 14th – 20th at: 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 7:15pm, 9:30pm

Troma’s newest flick Return To Nuke Em’ High Vol. 1 is finally hitting theaters in NYC! Why is this important to me? Well I love Troma… duh! But for reals… one of my life long goals of being in a Lloyd Kaufman directed Troma film was finally fulfilled. Now this ain’t just any Troma flick, this is Return To Nuke Em’ High! A modern rehash of one of Troma’s most beloved films – Class of Nuke Em’ High. Who cares that I don’t have any lines and my screen time totals less than a minute, what matters is that I did it! I even made it into the trailer for a millisecond!
I saw this Tromasterpiece a few months back as part of The New York Horror Film Festival. And let me tell you… it was amazing! All the blood, boobs, and buffoonery that you could ever hope for! So mark your calendar and come out to support true independent cinema!

The portal opened five feet from his left, and Wolverine watched the lanky, muscled frame of his former teammate and friend step out onto the snowy grounds of the Jean Gray School for Gifted Students. Cyclops looked grim as usual, and travelled with a dusty satchel. Wolverine couldn’t remember the last time he had seen Scott Summers smile.
“I’m here, Logan.” Cyclops said, looking around for traps. “What is it you needed? Make it quick, I’m a wanted man.”
Wolverine uncrossed his arms and stepped forward. “I’ve been one too, Cyke, many times. After awhile, being out in the cold gets to ya’.” Scott just nodded, and so Wolverine continued. “Remember that first Christmas back at the Mansion with Chucky, Kitty, Peter and Kurt? We all laughed watchin’ Storm give the Professor Snow-Fros?”
“That was a long time ago,” Cyclops said, and instantly struggled with a thought. How long ago was that? Sometimes it feels like it was Thirty years ago, but it may have been only Five.
“If there’s one thing you learn while being an X-Man, it’s that time can always be changed.” Wolverine half smiled, and reached behind a nearby statue. He pulled out a box, brightly wrapped in red and green candy cane printed paper.
It was an X-Mas present from one X-Man to an Ex-X-Man.
Cyclops opened the box with hesitant hands. Years of battle hardened ambushes had trained him to be wary of gifts. What lay inside the present surprised him more than any bomb, alien parasite or severed head of a beloved comrade.
Inside the box was a case of custom made, ruby quartz contact lenses. Enough to last an entire year.
“Merry X-Mas, Slim.” growled Wolverine. “Hank helped with the design. I wonder why we’ve never thought of this before.”
“Logan,” choked Scott, “It’s-. I don’t know what to say.” Embarrassed, he turned and reached into his travel bag, taking out a brightly wrapped box of his own. Wolverine was stunned. He did not expect this…because this story takes place now. If this was the 80′s or 90′s, they would have said Wolverine could pre-smell the present with his heightened senses, but nobody remembers that power set anymore.
“I had hoped your message was sincere, so I came prepared. Thanks for forgiving me for killing Professor X. Again.” Cyclops laughed.
“Ah, heck, Slim. Who hasn’t killed that bald S.O.B. once or twice. Now what have we here,” Wolverine asked, opening the gift. He, too, was surprised because again- no heightened sense of smell.
Inside was an Adamantium claw sharpener with a jar of Adamantium claw polish. Wolverine smiled. Cyclops did the same. Somewhere a jolly, fat elf was Ho-Hoed. They both started to laugh.
“You know, Scott, this gift is the most thoughtful thing anyone’s ever given me,” Wolvie sighed, “And as useless as a Metrocard for Nightcrawler. You see-” and what followed was a sickening SHLACK sound, as the bloody stumps of bones broke through Wolverine’s hands. “I sold my Adamantium claws and skeleton to a scrap dealer in order to afford the Ruby Quartz Contacts.”
Tears started to swell in Scott Summers’ eyes, as he broke into a silly grin. “Of course. That seems like our luck, Logan, because you see-” He paused. Red streaks started to roll down his cheeks. Tears of blood were flowing fast now, as Cyclops removed his visor, revealing the ruined cavities of his former weapons. “I sold my eyes to a mutant organ harvester in order to afford the Adamantium claw sharpener.”
They laughed, cried, hugged and bled all over each other there in the snow, both laughing at the magic of Christmas. They soon both passed out from blood loss and died of exposure.

Another day, another gift idea list! In the last couple of years Adventure Time has become one of those trail blazing pop culture phenomenons that just doesn’t seem to have a foreseeable end to its popularity. That being said, when your little one comes to you this holiday season and says “Mom, it would be totally Algebraic if you got me a Lumpy Space Princess this Christmas!” it is still understandable for you to respond with a blank expression, slacked jawed and wide eyed. Don’t worry your kids are not on drugs, this is really something that they are interested in. Ok, your kids may be on drugs but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make them happy this holiday.

What better way to celebrate the birth of the original zombie, Jesus Christ that is, than with a few gifts from the most popular name in the undead genre! I’m talking The Walking Dead baby, or TWD or WD, depending on how lazy I get. Who would have guessed Robert Kirkman’s apocalyptic adventure would become a household name? Not I said the fly…and the fly has been swarming this crew of walkers from day one. So if the fly didn’t see this coming how could anyone possibly have?

Officer Whatsername leans in and is about to asks for your license and registration when he catches a quick glimmer of light coming off your key ring… “Is that a Walking Dead zombie head dangling from your keys there?” he says. “Why yes it is sir” You answer. His eyes go wide and a smile begins to form “What do you think about Daryl Dixon? Oh dip! You better get going you’re gonna miss the new episode!” Look at that, you just avoided a ticket, points on your license, and possibly a trip down the river if he checked your trunk, and all because you have this Walking Dead Zombie Head Keychain.
