Horror Boobs presents The Abomination @ Alamo Drafthouse

Join those vidiots Horror Boobs once again, 8PM this Wednesday July 2nd at Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers for a VHS screening of Bret McCormick’s monster mash The Abomination! Oh yeah, and tickets are only a buck!

ABOMINATION

 

Prepare to puke! Shot on Super 8mm in Poolville, Texas and crammed with neon barf, disembowelments, and ambitious latex monsters, THE ABOMINATION is a benchmark in D.I.Y. trash-gore insanity. Cody lives with his mom in a wood-paneled shack. Mom devotes her life to shady evangelist Brother Fogg. Mom hacks up a tumor. The tumor infects Cody. He coughs one up, too. Soon, the tumors multiply. They infect the entire house and take form as The Abomination — a bloody vagina monster that hides in a washing machine and tears people in half! With no ties to rational thought, THE ABOMINATION falls somewhere between the calculated gross-out of STREET TRASH and the hallucinogenic dream-world of H.G. Lewis’s THE WIZARD OF GORE. This movie heaves with mismatched post-dubbing, constant jump cuts, and tape-manipulated synthesizers until it EXPLODES with the stench of wet cow intestines, burning Bibles, and pissed jeans. It’s psychedelic anxiety, 1980s style. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

Tickets only $1! Hosted by Matt Desiderio (Horror Boobs) and Mike Hunchback (Seminal Psychosis).

Bring your tapes! We’ll be set up for a tape trade, with rare VHS tapes also available for sale.

Get warped with Matt D

8PM Wednesday June 11th at Alamo Drafthouse NYC Area, Forbidden Planet’s very own Matt D hosts a VHS screening of Demonwarp.

demonwarp

Don’t miss the best “Zombie Sasquatches from Space” movie you will see all year! Oh yeah and tickets are only ONE BUCK!

George Kennedy is enjoying a game of Trivial Pursuit when Bigfoot breaks into his house and kills his daughter. Then a group of Bigfoot trackers (including Billy Jacoby from JUST ONE OF THE GUYS) set up shop in the same cabin. Sex! Practical jokes! Bigfoot wearing an Axl Rose wig! George Kennedy calls Bigfoot a “wooly bastard” and a “six-foot fleabag,” but that doesn’t stop the mythical beastoid from messing around with dynamite and REMOVING PEOPLE’S HEADS. Before you know it, DEMONWARP transforms from a movie about Bigfoot decapitating people to a movie about dimestore zombies, wet alien puppets, satanic sacrifices, and 1980s scream queen Michelle Bauer roaming around with no clothes on. Why is all of this happening? Your guess is as good as ours. But it probably has something to do with a zombie who does impressions of Jack Nicholson and a time-traveling spaceship. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

Tickets only $1! Hosted by Matt Desiderio (Horror Boobs) and Mike Hunchback (Seminal Psychosis).

Bring your tapes! We’ll be set up for a tape trade, with rare VHS tapes also available for sale.

GOREMET

The year is 1386. A group of wizards called “The Ancient Order” place a curse on a guy named Goza. Cut to 1986. Goza is now the proprietor of Goza’s Deli & Beach Club, which is a front for chopping off people’s body parts and eating them. Goza also enjoys dance parties with nude women, as long as they’re dancing to a rip-off of ELO’s “Don’t Bring Me Down.” At one point, Goza screams, “DON’T CHASTISE ME!” to someone, which leads to a showdown with The Ancient Order in a suburban park. There are hooded sweatshirts and invisible force fields. Goza may survive the ordeal, but will he survive the final showdown with a priestess who looks like Pat Benatar? GOREMET ZOMBIE CHEF FROM HELL reeks of weed, Doritos, and old Reebok high-tops in the best of ways. It was made by adults on Super 8, but most likely influenced by ninth-graders playing Dungeons & Dragons while watching EVIL DEAD. Plus it’s only 67 minutes. Bonus! (Joseph A. Ziemba)

Tickets only $1! Hosted by Matt Desiderio and Mike Hunchback of Horror Boobs.

3DEVADAM

 

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).

Balt Salt Zombies is simply a creative and chaotic caper from a pretty prolific artist coming into his own. –  Patrick Dolan, RUE MORGUE

Bath Salt Zombies is a new horror film directed and co-written by Dustin Wayde Mills (Puppet Monster Massacre, Zombie A-Hole, Ballad of Skinless Pete) and produced and co-written by Clint Weiler of Aggronautix. The movie sensationalizes the recent bath salt epidemic and the attacks surrounding them.

On March 9th at Forbidden Planet, starting at 7PM writer/producer Clint Weiler and members of the band World War IX will be on hand for signings. The band will be signing copies of their new EP “Off The Wagon” featuring the Bath Salt Zombies theme song. Guitar player Justin Melkmann will also be showcasing his newest comic book Ear Aches and Eye Sores #4, Melkmann’s Slap in the Face My Obsession with GG Allin has always been a big hit on Forbidden Planet’s indie rack when available.
Also, a VERY limited edition VHS of Bath Salt Zombies will be available at the signing. Collectors of this medium will no doubt want one.
At 8PM, singer Filthy Phil will be recording live in the store for his weekly podcastDispatches From The Underground so come on down for a chance to be on the show.
Later that night join the band in Brooklyn for a Midnight Screening of Bath Salt Zombies at The Spectacle Theater hosted by the fine folks at Horror Boobs. Spectacle Theater is located at 124 S.3rd Street (near Bedford Ave) Williamsburg, admission is 5 dollars.
“Although the film is somewhat of a black comedy, I wanted to portray the real power of drugs in a horror story… Dustin was able to pull it off with ease,” said Weiler who wrote the treatment for the film and worked on the basic characterization.

“It’s off the wall comic book insanity with blood, gore, nudity, martial arts, gunfights, and a mutant jack-chi,” said Mills. “You should check your brain at the door and prepare to have your face melted off.”

SYNOPSIS:

Present day, United States… The bath salts epidemic facing the southern and mid-western US has been stifled by an unprecedented government crackdown. Head shops have been raided and shut down, component imports from the UK, India and China have been completely stopped, and aggressive penalties for users have been instated. This has led to a tremendous amount of surplus stock hidden by black market dealers, and a migration of those dealers (and in turn, users) to the northeast and other areas. In New York City, potent strands have surfaced and have attracted the most devoted bath salt junkies. In an attempt to outsell said strands, a young aspiring chemist has developed and even stronger batch… but something has gone horribly wrong. The new ultra potent bath salt batch has revealed a major side effect… It turns users into violent flesh seeking “zombies.” When the zombies are high on balt salts, they are completely unaware of their actions and they seem to float in and out of consciousness. When they kill / eat people, they are unaware of what has happened when they come down off the drug. The drug is also more addictive than other forms, and users feel the need to stay constantly high due to the fact they become incredibly feeble when sober. They come down HARD.

FACTS ABOUT THE BATH SALT EPIDEMIC:

Traditional “bath salts” consist of a combination of amphetamine-like chemicals, mainly mephedrone, MDPV and methylone. Users of the drug have reported feeling incredibly hot, which is why many get naked (in this case, it gives us cause for female nudity). They also develop superhuman strength (it can take five or six men to restrain them) and become so manic and delusional that the term “excited delirium” is being used by the medical community to describe their mental state. The shocking wave of attacks has sparked fears of a real-life zombie outbreak in the south. This led to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention releasing a statement saying it is not aware of any virus that can cause zombie-like behavior. A spokesman said: “MDPV is an illegal and harmful drug and stiff penalties are in place for people who possess or supply it. Drugs ruin lives which is why we are taking tough action against dealers and criminal gangs and helping people to free themselves from the cycle of dependency.”

STARRING: Brandon Salkil, Josh Eal, Ethan Holey, Dave Parker, Jackie McKown, and more.

VHS in the NYT and QUADEAD @ MAD Museum

Today in the New York Times Arts and Leisure section you will find a little article about the VHS Series at the Museum of Arts and Design.  I know you all already know about it, but that’s because you are hip and you follow the Daily Planet… or maybe because I won’t shut up about it.  Hey you would be running your mouth too if a government funded museum asked you to help curate an exhibition celebrating one of your favorite things in the entire world!  Thank you Bloomie, The Gates and Waterfalls were weak in my opinion but you’ve redeemed your self with this one.

VHS overload!!!

Think about all the people across the country that the NYT will inform, bringing the masses up to speed with all you cool cats.  Now lets get real, its one thing to be in the know, but knowing amounts to nothing more than a pile of beans unless you actually come out and experience it.  And what better way to experience the true essence of VHS than with a screening of Tales From The Quadead Zone, one of the oddest films of the video era.

This Friday July 6th at the MAD Museum, I (Matt D) will host an epic event of analog proportions.  Not only will your eyes be assaulted by the oddity that is Qudead, but be prepared to experience a reel of VHS trailers that could only come from the bowels of forgotten film history. Included will be  Shot on Video trashterpieces, films that have never made the jump to DVD, and more weirdness than may be humanly possible to take, so make sure you mark your calendar because this must see to be believed cinematic experience will be a once in a life time event.

The direct-to-video market not only created more opportunities for creating and distributing breakthrough cinematic works, it also fostered the creation of a new chapter in “trashterpieces,” a genre of camp cinema that celebrates spectacular failures in traditional filmmaking techniques. Affordable home video equipment and an ever-expanding home viewing market paved the way for a slew of aspiring filmmakers. This created a “backyard Hollywood” movement in which many striving artists and opportunistic businessmen could capture and release their visions on video.

A horror anthology in three parts (thereby nullifying the theory that the “Qua” stands for four), Tales From the Quadead Zone is held together by a framing segment in which actress Shirley Jones reads stories to the ghost of her child from a book entitled Tales From the Quadead Zone.  Failing on nearly every traditional level, Tales From the Quadead Zone is often described as a car crash of a film.  However, the film’s earnest ambitions, and resulting great failure, make it a true camp classic made possible by the VHS camcorder.
