Adjust Your Tracking NYC Premiere! Friday May 24 7:30PM @ 92Y Tribeca 200 Hudson St. Tons of Analog Amazement to go around including a VHS trailer pre-show, not to mention Directors Dan Kinem and Levi Peretic of VHShitfest will be in attendance, along with Producers Matt Desiderio of Horror Boobs and Josh Schafer of Lunchmeat Magazine! Get your tickets here now!
The new issue of Lunchmeat is now available at Forbidden Planet, in store and on the web! If you don’t know Lunchmeat than you don’t know VHS. The first and only all VHS magazine! So grab Lunchmeat #6 now!
We’ve stacked the slimy slices o’ cinema high in LM # 6 serving up in-depth reviews of hard-to-find VHS-only flicks such as Blue Blood, America’s Deadliest Home Video, Rockula, and Desert Snow along with a slew of other blood-encrusted video vittles to chew on! Also skulking around in this issue we’ve got an interview with Daniel Roebuck where he spills his guts about his experience working on Penelope Spheeris’ cult-classic punk rock road flick Dudes! Director extraordinaire Gene Quintano gives us the skinny on how 3D films pounced on audiences across the world in the early 80s, and Lunchmeat is absolutely thrilled to present an interview with cult cinema hero George Stover as he details the history of one of the most amazing fanzines you may have never heard of: CINEMACABRE!
Also on the menu for LM # 6, we’ve got Heather Drain expounding on the cavorting and carnality soaked teen sex comedies of the home video era and, as always, we’re serving up Rob Hauschild’s dumpster diving dish: Tapes from the Trash Bin! Still hungry?! That’s what we like to hear!
For all you voracious Videovores out there we’ll take you for a weird and wild ride in the LM time-machine as we explore the sprawling and screwy history of Interactive VHS Gaming! Oh, and did we mention the crossword puzzle where you can win prizes? ‘Cause you know that’s in there, too! Try your might and snatch some groovy prizes from The Crossword Troll’s grimy fingers! What other toothsome treats await you in Lunchmeat # 6? Guess you’ll have to grab one, before it grabs you! Hooooo-Haaaah!!
Coming to Brooklyn this Sunday July 10th, Wild Eye Releasing and Nitehawk Cinema present an event to sate the needs of any film freak. This ain’t no retro throw back, this is the real deal! Put your life on pause and prepare to Destroy All VHS! Not literally, I hope… but you never know what might happen after a few drinks.
Destroy All VHS is a one of a kind event celebrating the greatest home video format ever invented… VHS! At 10 PM the Play Button is pressed and the fun begins. First your eyes will be treated to tons of trailers and home movies, then a VCR demonstration by every Videovore’s favorite VHS magazine, Lunchmeat, followed by a sexy/scary clip show by the Horror Boobs.
To top it off- a showing of Friday The 13th The Orphan! If there was one reason to attend, it would be to catch this rare (never available on your schmancy DVD or Blew-ray format) forgotten classic. All screened straight from the VCR so you can revel in the fuzz, blips, grain, scratches and screeches. And if you got a problem with the way it looks get up there and fix the tracking yourself!
Did I mention that the Nitehawk Cinema rules?! Well if I haven’t yet I did just now. The theater’s located in Williamsburg Brooklyn just a few blocks off the Bedford Avenue L train stop. That’s only one stop out of the city, giving you Manahattanites no real excuse. They have a full bar and restaurant so you can get your drank and chomp on. And the icing on the cake? A VHS Museum, so you can soak in that beautiful Big Box art like a true trash connoisseur.
Both Lunchmeat and Horror Boobs will have a merch table with magazines, T-Shirts, buttons, and most importantly TAPES!!! I will personally be bringing a slew of crazy rare stuff for trade and sale. Trades are obviously preferred!!!
One more time…
Destroy All VHS
Sunday July 10th, 10 PM
136 Metropolitan Ave
See you there!
