Seriously sick and awesome!

Poultrygeist and Chripy at the Anthology Film Archives

Anthology Film Archives will be screening Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead and John Goras’ Award winning Chirpy on Friday, January 14th, 2012 at 9:00 PM.  Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment, Creator of The Toxic Avenger and Producer, Writer and Director of Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, will be appearing in person as well as Chirpy creator, John Goras.

Anthology Film Archives is shelling out an Eggs-cellent program with this screening, which can be considered something of a Thankschrismakawanzayears Day (with an egg on top) gift to all of Troma’s feathered and plucked fans. First, Anthology will be presenting Chirpy, a film Oscar Nominated animator Bill Plympton described as “one of the sickest animated films ever made.”

They will then continue the evening with Kaufman’s critically acclaimed Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. Nathan Lee of the New York Times had the following to  say about Poultrygeist: “Within the context of its genre – the satirical sexploitation zombie chicken gross-out musical extravaganza – it is just about as perfect as a film predicated on the joys of projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea can be…Poultrygeist plays like a grindhouse analogue to the sloppy, psychosexual provocations of the performance artist Paul McCarthy and is, in its lowbrow way, every bit as  liberating.” That’s nothing to shake your tail feathers at.

If that wasn’t enough egg-citement for you, there will also be a Q&A with the two films’ creators and plenty of “clucked-up” Troma merchandise available, all of which the ruler of the roost, Lloyd Kaufman will sign free of charge.  Beak there or be square.

Anthology Film Archives is located at 32 Second Avenue, New York, NY. Tickets are available for $9.00 the day of the show only at the box office, beginning 30 minutes prior to the screening.  AFA can be reached at (212) 505-5181.

Found Footage Festival Vol 5

Vidiots unite this weekend, Friday January 28 and Saturday January 29, for the Found Footage Festival at Anthology Film Archives.

The Found Footage Festival is a one-of-a-kind event that showcases footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters across the country.

Not only will our eyes be marred by the newest entry in FFF catalog but as a truly special treat they’re screening “Heavy Metal Parking Lot” with co-director John Heyn in attendance.

But wait there’s more… Free Beer if you’re over 21 and while supplies last.

What more could you ask for? Merch designed by Johnny Ryan, they got that too.

So what would I do if I saw Joe Pickett, Nick Prueher, Glenn Severance, the men behind FFF?

I jump their bones!
