As I noted before, some of us will be getting together with Sandy Petersen in Dallas on Saturday July 26th to watch B-movies. We have more room if anyone else wants to come join us. Just e-mail me at email@example.com for details.
Sandy and Chris and I (jr. partner) pick the movies, which makes for a varied slate. Sandy likes manic craziness in his b-movies, and has a heavy taste for wackier international stuff. He also likes obscurities. (He once asked me if I thought the invisible dinosaur movie Sound of Terror was “too well-known” for T-Fest.) Chris is active in independent films, and likes to show recent art-house/cult fare. For myself, I’m (surprise) the group’s traditionalist. Freeman Williams (Dr. Freex) also fills that role, but he can’t make it this year.
Chris has a few more empty slots, but here’s what we’ve got so far. The timings/order are but a rough:
10:00 Eternal Evil of Asia 89 Mins. 1994 (WARNING: HEAVY GORE AND VIOLENCE!)
Well, I don’t know what it’s about, but here are the film’s Amazon plot words: Female Nudity; Beautiful Woman; Stop Motion; Sex; Blood; Brothel; Death; Erotica; Evil Sorcerer; Ghost; Group Sex; Invisibility; Love Potion; Martial Arts; Nudity; Oral Sex; Penis; Rape; Revenge; Sex Magic; Taoist Priest; Thailand; Witchcraft. In case people are wondering, we’re starting with this so that Sandy can bring his kids in for the milder fare later on.
11:30 From Hell it Came 73 Mins. 1957 B&W (Actually, I can’t find my copy of this. I’ll try to get another, but otherwise may go with something else. Originally I was going to show Queen of Outer Space, but we had NO black and white movies in the line-up at this point, so I switched.)
1:00 The Harrad Experiment 97 mins. 1973 (WARNING! HIPPIES!)
3:00 Big Man Japan 2007 113 mins.
5:00 DINNER BREAK
7:00 Big Meat Eater 82 mins. 1982
8:45 Chris Pick
10:00 War in Space 89 mins. 1977
11:30 Some Movie with a T-Rex in it.
One nice thing is that all the movies (save Big Man Japan) are about an hour and a half or less. I dig that. Lots of shorts, too, courtesy of Chris. I expect Dr. Tran will be making his annual appearances.
