Ahoy boys and girls! Get ready to roll up your breeches and grab your snorkels because it looks like the grand ‘ol Nitehawk Cinema has been flooded… with Deep Sea VHS! Those globe-sailing lads and lasses at VHS Vault, Wild Eye and Horror Boobs have gone fishing again for the weirdest, wackiest, and wettest VHS tapes they could reel in to bring you a one-of-a-kind event that?s just drowning in deep six video insanity. There will be more trailers, more crazy clips, more trivia games and more freebies than ever before – including a first-time ever, very special 3-D VHS segment so intense, we think we’ll need a bigger VCR! Meanwhile, Nitehawk’s onsite full restaurant and bar will provide you with all the right rations and rum specials to survive the night, but just when you thought it was safe to go back in the theater, we’ll be serving up a feature film from VHS so landlubbing ludicrous that your eyes will sting like a jellyfish – Lamberto Bava’s 1984 sexed-up sea monster masterpiece Devilfish. So when you are finally sick of staring at your leftover Thanksgiving bird, make sure to set sail to the Nitehawk Cinema on Sunday November 27th at 9:30 PM and enjoy an all-you-can-eat VHS seafood buffet for the eyes!
I thought I was pretty well versed in 80s horror schlock, especially films from the year 1987. So believe me when I say my mind was blown when I came across Grizzly 2: The Predator, also known as Predator: The Concert. I’m a big fan of the original Grizzly for the “it’s so bad it’s good” factor, but Grizzly 2 makes the original look like Jaws.
Grizzly 2 was never officially released, and never finished for that matter. Sweet live footage of some great New Wave rock bands and early appearances by Charlie “The Wraith” Sheen, George “Return of The Killer Tomatoes“ Clooney, and Laura “Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Stains” Dern make this a must see. I recently snagged a pretty well compiled work-print bootleg and obviously footage is all over the internet.
Spread the wealth.
