Starting Tonight! Hobo With A Shotgun with Director Q&A

When Shawn Lewis of Rotten Cotton/Black Devil Doll fame told me I had to see Hobo With A Shotgun, I knew that I was in for the real deal and not some “Grindhouse” cash-in, like so many seem to be trying to do lately.  Shawn is a no BS kinda guy, which you could tell by looking at Rotten Cotton’s hate-mail responses.  Anyway, the man was 100% right and I loved every blood-soaked minute of it.

Anyone who is remotely interested probably knows the amazing story behind director Jason Eisener’s success… Which I will not get into cause you can read it all in the newest issue of Rue Morgue available right here at Forbidden Planet. (shameless!)

What I will tell you is to clear your schedule this weekend for a double dose of exploitation madness, cause Hobo With A Shotgun is coming to The Village East Cinema.  The director will be in attendance, and there will be special Q&A’s at each midnight screening moderated by respected genre personalities Jeff Lieberman (Friday) and William Lustig (Saturday).  There is also a Hobo costume contest, so throw on your worst and make a night of it!

Black Devil Doll TONIGHT at Sunshine

Exploitation, Blaxploitation, Sexploitation, Horror and Comedy… you get all that and more with Shawn and Jonathan Lewis’ Black Devil Doll.  Head over to the Sunshine theatre tonight for a midnight screening of this modern cult classic.  I also heard that they’re giving away posters, buttons, etc… free crap is always a plus.  Click the header to check out their official site.

Heather thought that a Ouija board was nothing but an innocent child’s game. Little did she know, this child’s game would open a flaming door to hell and re-animate the soul of a recently executed black militant serial killer! With his spirit now trapped in the body of a trash-talking ventriloquist doll, Heather and her friends must fight off the unrelenting horrors and unspeakable deviant advances of a three foot killer with a taste for young flesh and warm blood. Can they stop the Black Devil Doll?

I truly love this movie. You can quote me on this: Black Devil Doll is one of the best movies of the last decade period.  True, this may not be for everyone, but it sure as hell was for me!
