It’s time to saddle up for an epic start to your New Year! Not too early to hinder your New Year’s Eve and late enough to grab a few beers without feeling like Death.
This Saturday January 1st at the Hollywood Theatre, The Grindhouse Film Festival presents THE NEW YEAR’S DAY GRINDHOUSE MOVIE MARATHON! A triple feature of 35mm exploitation mayhem. It’s the hangover helper! $7 for one movie, or $12 for all three. There will also be a RAFFLE for one free pass to all Grindhouse Film Festival screenings in 2011. In order to be entered in the raffle, you must watch all three movies.
MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE (1975) The ultra-weird martial arts masterpiece! A blind assassin armed with a vicious flying guillotine is out to kill the legendary one-armed boxer (martial arts superstar Jimmy Wang Yu). Along the way, he interrupts a bizarre kung fu tournament and heads start to roll. It’s up to the one-armed boxer now, with his skull shattering punch and his ability to walk on walls. Eagle claw masters, a monkey style fight, and a Swami fighter with ten foot arms are just stepping stones to the massive showdown with the flying guillotine. Filmed in Super Cine-Vision!
GATES OF HELL (1980) A surreal Italian gutmuncher from gore-maestro Lucio Fulci! A priest commits suicide and unwittingly opens the gateway to hell. The rotting dead rise from their graves to feed on the living in gruesome fashion, while a psychic and a journalist attempt to stop the rancid carnage. This is Lucio Fulci at his finest, so forget about the “plot” and prepare yourself for zombie killing, head drilling, and intestine spilling! Powered by Fabio Frizzi’s creepy soundtrack and top notch special effects.
LADY TERMINATOR (1988) A beautiful woman is possessed by an ancient mystical queen out for vengeance, turning her into an unstoppable killing machine! She takes off on a rampage across Indonesia, gunning down anyone who gets in her way, and blowing apart half of the country. She also sports a mean leather jacket… except when she’s naked… which is a lot. But for those foolish enough to try to put their hands on her, she also castrates men with an eel that lives in her vagina. Bullet-riddled disco shootouts, mind-boggling dialogue, a mullet-headed cop who drives a tank, and so much more. All in full-throttle ’80s excess!
Beer will be provided by Bridgeport Brewery. All information and advance tickets on the website: www.grindhousefilmfest.com
