Saturday, May 5th / Midnight

Spectacle Theater 124 South 3rd Street. Williamsburg Brooklyn

HORROR BOOBS presents: MICROWAVE MASSACRE

dir. Wayne Berwick, 1983

76 mins, USA

Donald & May are a working class couple in Los Angeles. When May decides she want to try up their social status by getting gourmet in the kitchen, she purchases a humongous new microwave. Donald, content with bologna and not impressed by his wife’s poor attempts as haute cuisine, spends a lot of time complaining to his co-workers. One night in a drunken rage, he kills May. He stashes parts of her in the fridge and some in the microwave. A few days later, while looking for a midnight snack, Donald accidentally eats some of May’s hand. From there it’s a downward spiral of hooker murder and serving human flesh to his friends and co-workers. How long can Donald keep this up? Can his heart, and more importantly his stomach, take it?

Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh – 4/20, Midnight – Spectacle Theater

Friday, April 20th / Midnight

Spectacle Theater 124 S. 3rd Williamsburg Brooklyn

HORROR BOOBS presents: Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh

dir. Alan Smithee, 1991

89min/USA/In English

Investigating a horrible murder, Sgt. Joe Blocker and his partner Sgt. Sweeney Birdwell notice a curious similarity to case from their past. When more details surface – wearing Egyptian paraphernalia to hide the identity, taking only a single body part from victims while leaving a note in hieroglyphics, he becomes even more despondent over what’s happening. As the deaths continue and with Chief ‘Buzz Saw’ Ryan, screaming at them for results to end the rampage, they play a hunch on who the killer is and are surprised to find that it reveals the killer’s ploy, using the body parts in an ancient ritual to bring to life an Egyptian War Goddess. Can they stop him in time?

A send up of buddy-cop pictures and a pre-cursor to the slew of horror parodies of the late 90’s/early 00’s BPIP is a raunchy, bloody, mess that you can’t take your eyes off of.

Last Man on Earth (a/k/a: L’ultimo uomo della Terra)
dir. Ubaldo Regola
86 mins, Italy, 1964

The year is 1968 and a virus has all but wiped out the Earth’s population. Every day Robert Morgan (Vincent Price!) drudges on – gathering weapons, keeping these undead, bloodsucking monsters from his doorstep. Having lost his wife and daughter to the plague, Morgan is alone and immune to the disease. While out on his daily rounds, he comes in contact with a mysterious and sickly woman named Ruth (Franca Bettoia). Ruth is infected but, along with a group of others like her, in in treatment. As time runs out, will Morgan be able to find a cure for this terrible plague? Can the group of survivors be trusted or will the plague take them over as well?

Based on THE OMEGA MAN by Richard Matheson, this bleak vision of future’s past is considered by many to be some of Vincent Price’s finest work. Also, the film was cited by George Romero as the basis for his film NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. Initially the film was not well received but has since become a classic of the genre and has been re-made numerous times. Matheson was not a fan of the adaptation while Price regarded it as one of his favorite roles.


Brother From Another Planet
dir. John Sayles
104 mins, USA, 1984

A three-toed alien slave (Joe Morton) on the run from “another planet” crashes in Harlem and tries to blend in while fleeing the Men In Black (David Strathairn & John Sayles) who are also aliens attempting to bring him back to their own world. While unable to communicate through speech, The Brother has telekinetic powers and moves around the city just trying to feel at home.

Sayles directed, edited, wrote, composed, and co-stars in this comedy drama. Featuring a snapshot of NY past, the film stands up remarkably well. Morton would go on to a slew of TV and film roles. Also, look for an appearance from Fisher Stevens on the subway!


Kamillions (a/k/a: The Wingates)
dir. Mike B. Anderson
90 mins, USA, 1990

Nathaniel Wingate (co-writer/producer Harry S. Robbins), professor at the Miskatonic University, has finally opened the door to another dimension. Unfortunately, it happens to be the same night as his 50th birthday celebration. In the craziness of preparation and guests arriving two horseshoe crab-like creatures make their way through the portal – one good and one evil. These shape-shifting creatures take the forms of a buxom blonde model (from a poster in Sam Wingate’s room) and a distant relative – Count Desmond of Liechtenstein. Hilarity and calamity ensue as the Wingate family deals with these uninvited guests.

From director Mike B. Anderson (Alone in the T-Shirt Zone, The Simpsons) comes this rare Lovecraftian comedy that lives somewhere in between BEETLEJUICE, Cronenberg’s THE FLY, TERORVISION, and MEET THE HOLLOWHEADS. Plenty of laffs, practical effects (model work, makeup, stop motion, and more), and fantastic character actors in this RARELY screened lost gem. Shot on 35mm but relegated the VHS market after being poorly marketed. Spectacle is proud to include this film as part of our first sci-fi marathon.


Mold
dir. Neil Meschino
90 mins, USA, 2010
Presented courtesy of the filmmaker.

It’s 1984 and Reagan’s War on Drugs has reached it’s frenzied height. Inside a secret lab, scientist and government officials meet to discuss a new, highly potent strain of mold – called Stachybotrys Morte – that is to be deployed on the coca plants of Columbia. When the situation in the lab becomes compromised and sabotage is the only possible explanation, can this team find a way out before they’re infected with this powerful strain?

Meschino’s debut feature (filmed in Long Island) deftly toes the line between sci-fi nightmare and parody. While some reviews paint images of early Henelotter (and that’s not entirely unfoudned) MOLD! sits firmly in the realm of melt-movies like STREET TRASH and SLIME CITY. Meschino makes great use of limited space and budget by pulling great performances out of a cast of unknowns and some pretty effective special effects. With a host of references – everything  from ROBIN HOOD to BACK TO THE FUTURE, MOLD! knows it’s audience and plays it up proper.

Featuring an intro and Q&A from director Neil Meschino.


Bad Taste
dir. Peter Jackson
91 mins, New Zealand, 1987

When aliens invade a small New Zealand village and begin to harvest humans for their fast-food chain, a team of paramilitary troops go up against the the seemingly insatiable appetites of these intergalactic chow-hounds.

One of the first films from Peter Jackson, made on the weekends over the course of four years and starring Jackson and his friends in multiple roles. Made on a shoestring budget totaling $25,000. All of the makeup effects were made at home by Jackson  in his parents oven.


The Wizard of Speed and Time
dir. Mike Jittlov
95 mins, USA, 1989
Presented courtesy of the filmmaker.

A special effects wizard (Mike Jittlov) is trying hard to make his dream of working on a feature film come true. Sadly, he finds himself facing not only a mountain a monetary challenges but also the threat of being ground up in the gears of the Hollywood system. With the help of his friends, and a little movie magic, can Mike makes his dream come true or will the heinous executives betting on his failure real the reward?

Based on the 16mm short from ten years earlier, TWOSAT is an updated version of Mike Jittlov’s manic vision. All at once a love letter to the magic of cinema and an icy glare at the evils of the inner workings of Hollywood. A showcase of every type of special effect, with exceptional long-form stop motion sequences, Jittlov makes use of the budget and time in ways that seems almost unimaginable. One of our favorite films, it is truly an honor to be able to present this phenomenal work.


Class of Nuke Em High (a/k/a: Atomic High School)
dir. Richard W. Haines & Samuel Weil
86 mins, USA, 1986
Presented courtesy of Troma Entertainment

Class of Nuke’Em High, the timeless classic of readin’, writin’ and radiation, is available for the first time ever in this unrated Director’s Cut. When first released in theaters in 1986, Class of Nuke’Em High became an instant sensation. Its unique blend of horror and humor was cheered by audiences and celebrated by critics. The film spawned two sequels and legions of fans. At Tromaville High School, located a stone’s throw from the local Nuclear Power Plant, the students are getting brighter. In fact, they’re beginning to develop a Troma-green glow. Innocent students mutate into sex-crazed psychos, the Honor Society’s turned into carnivorous, kinky cretins, and the slimy monster stalking the hallways isn’t the principal! The Director’s Cut of Class of Nuke ‘Em High has been lovingly restored by co-director Lloyd Kaufman (who developed the film during detention) and the Troma Team.

Presented by the fine folks at Troma, this event mark the first in a series of collaborations between Troma and Spectacle. Starting in April, Spectacle will play host to a monthly midnight featuring lesser known and rare films not available on DVD. Stay tuned for more details!

I BURY THE LIVING // Albert Band // 1958

A new caretaker at the Immortal Hill Cemetery begins to believe he holds the power of life and death in his hands. Is it merely coincidence or are sinister forces at work?

KILLING SPREE// Tim Ritter // 1987 // courtesy of Camp Motion Pictures/Alternative Cinema

Tom Russo (Asbestos Felt) has begun to suspect his wife of cheating. So he takes to the streets to get revenge in a myriad of horrible ways. No one is safe!

Tim Ritter is infamous for his outrageous, low-budget horror films including Creep, Wicked Games and Truth or Dare. His 1987 feature Killing Spree (1987) wallows in extreme violence, insanity and gore-soaked depravity. Part Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and part Pieces, it’s a no-holds-barred glimpse into the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic and bloodthirsty psychopath – presented uncut and uncensored.

THE TAINT // Drew Bolduc & Dan Nelson // 2010 // courtesy of the filmmakers.

The water is tainted. THE TAINT poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to KILL WOMEN. When society is transformed into a land of sadistic violence and horrible brutality, it is up to Phil OʼGinny and his female friend, Misandra, to combat the horrible evil that is “THE TAINT”.

The low-budget independent film was made in Richmond, VA with the help of many incredibly talented local artists and Virginia Commonwealth University students. It is a testament to guerilla style filmmaking and a great example of what can be accomplished outside of the studio system with very little money.
