Thursday Jan 26th VHS Trailer Show 3 @ 92Y Tribeca

This Thursday January 26th at 8PM the 92Y Tribeca Theater host their 3rd VHS Trailer Show!

Some of us refuse to let go of our VHS tapes.

One reason is that they have become a treasure trove of trailers for movies that time forgot. Being forced to scan past them each time you want to get to the feature, you end up developing an affection for these seemingly made-up movies. For the VHS Trailer Show, we present you with our favorite trailers, directly from VHS tapes. Armed with their favorites will be Cinebeasts, Matt Desiderio (Horror Boobs), Mark Freado (Junk Food Dinner), Sean Price Williams (DP for The Color Wheel), Cristina Cacioppo (92YTribeca’s film programmer), a special segment of “VHS Trailers That Should Have Been” from the Found Footage Festival and more.

We’ll also invite audience members to share their favorites, so if you’ve got a tape, cue it up!

Those f00ls good people over at the 92Y were dumb nice enough to let me join in on this wonderful event once again!  I thought my theme of nudity in trailers would have surely gotten my name crossed off of the future contributor list, even the extended Ilsa She Wolf of the SS trailer went over surprisingly well… or at least as good as it possibly could have.  So come on down and check out some insane trailers straight from VHS care of people like Mark Freado of Junk Food Dinner, The Found Footage Festival and me, Matt Desiderio, Forbidden Planet’s very own VHS expert.

Coming this Thursday to the 92Y Tribeca Screening RoomVHS Trailer Show Part Deux! I hope you guys are not tried of hearing me talk about VHS cause it ain’t stopping anytime soon.

Some of us refuse to let go of our VHS tapes.

One reason is that they have become a treasure trove of trailers for movies that time forgot. Being forced to scan past them each time you want to get to the feature, you end up developing an affection for these seemingly made-up movies. For the VHS Trailer Show, we present you with our favorite trailers, directly from VHS tapes. Armed with their favorites will be Matt Carman and Kseniya Yarosh (I Love Bad Movies), Mark Freado (Junk Food Dinner), Zach Clark (Modern Love is Automatic), Harry Merritt and Reid Bingham (Cinebeasts), Matthew Desiderio (Horror Boobs/VHS Vault) and a special segment of “VHS Trailers That Should Have Been” from the Found Footage Festival. Expect Vidmark oddities, action heros, and erotic thrillers, to name a few. We’ll also invite audience members to share their favorites, so if you’ve got a tape, cue it up!

Seems like they were stupid nice enough to bring me on board for a segment… finally some recognition! I call it a way to validate all the piles of tapes in my apartment.

Junk Food Dinner Movie Night With Special Guest Host Matt D

This Tuesday night I have the pleasure of co-hosting Junk Food Dinner movie night at the Project Parlor bar in Brooklyn.  They do a double feature of classic cult cinema every other Tuesday.  I picked Slime City, obviously to help get everyone hyped for the Slime City Massacre DVD Release Party we are hosting here at FP on Friday and Mark picked Blood Freak, probably cause he has a turkey fetish.

Slime City -1988- Directed by Greg Lamberson – Slime, Booze, and Broads… What more could you ask for? Murder, of course.

Blood Freak – 1972 – Directed and Written by Brad Grinter and Steve Hawkes – Bikers, drugs and Science… What else you say? More murder!

Junk Food Dinner Movie Night

My buddy Mark Freado over at Junk Food Dinner is now hosting a movie night in Bed-Stuy, along with Kevin Merryman, who also runs a radical blog called Cultural Atrocities.

March 1st is a red letter day for us here at JFD. It’s the first (of hopefully many) Junk Food Dinner nights at Project Parlor (742 Myrtle Ave.) in Bed-Stuy. Your charming hosts for this event are Mark Freado, Jr. and Kevin Merryman. Drink specials, trivia, drinking games, bickering, peanuts, couches, VHS prints- what’s not to like? We’re gonna kick things off at 9pm. Join us won’t you?

They’re showing Luigi Cozzi’s Starcrash, a mixed up Italian Star Wars rip off, starring Caroline Munro, David Hasselhoff and Joe Spinell… it’s like Maniac meets Knight Rider in space!

And Ice Cream Man starring Clint Howard as a killer… wait for it… Ice Cream Man.  Directed by Paul Norman of Edward Penishands fame. Yes, you heard me right…

Hope to see you there.
