Sweeeeeet! The Cult Movie Mania Screaming Cinema series is returning to the Tampa Pitcher Show in Tampa, Florida. Last year this series played such flicks as Slime City Massacre, Chillerama, Bellflower, The Theatre Bizarre, Dear God No (where my wife had to walk out because even though she looked away from the screen, the sound effects in one scene were too gross), Father’s Day, and other messed up stuff.
This year’s lineup includes John Dies at the End, The Manson Family, Lost Faith, Excision, Bloody Bloody Bible Camp, and Cosmopolis. The series runs Friday nights at 10:30 PM, starting on April 26th. (Of course, I’ll be out of town for the Texas Library Association conference on April 26th, so have fun without me, jerks!)
Check out the Cult Movie Mania website for all the details.
For the past several weeks, Cult Movie Mania has had a fantastic film series at the Tampa Pitcher Show, including great stuff like Slime City Massacre, Bellflower, The Theatre Bizarre, Chillerama, Father’s Day, Dear God No, and The Uh-Oh Show. But on Friday, May 4th, they’ll have a show so SHOCKING, so THRILLING, so GASP-INDUCING, so SENTENCES LIKE “HOLY CRAP I CAN’T BELIEVE I AM FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO BE SITTING IN THE THEATRE WATCHING THIS EVENT!” INSPIRING, that you’ll want to bring an underwear sponge with you!
The evening consists of three short films: Andy Lalino’s gross-out masterpiece “Filthy,” JB Whirley’s “The Psycho Dish,” and…wow, a long-lost film by the legendary Ed Wood, “The Final Curtain!” (It’s actually the pilot for a TV series that never aired, and based on the few minutes I saw, it is awesomely bad.)
But that’s not all! There is also a “live theatre” element, consisting of three ghoulishly funny skits written by
highly acclaimed moderately acclaimed occasionally acknowledged author Jeff Strand (me) and performed by members of the Cheap Little Punks, joined by Joel D. Wynkoop!
And it’s only ten bucks. Short horror flicks and live theatre! You can’t possibly have any better options on a Friday night. The insanity starts at 9:00 PM at the Tampa Pitcher Show, 14416 North Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, Florida.
