VOYAGE OF THE ROCK ALIENS
(1988) Directed by James Fargo
Pia Zadora stars in this VERY 80's film about some outer space aliens looking for Earth women and rock and roll. What they get is Jermaine Jackson singing a duet with Pia, some Devo-like rockabilly music, lots and lot's of 80's style music, and fluffy hairdooz. A strange spoof on the 60's beach movies that play like an hour-long rock video.

Tonight the WPFS presents 'For Your Height Only'. A film from the Philippines that stars a pint-sized stick of dynamite. I really don't know if this is a spoof of the James Bond film ' For Your Eyes Only' because it is just too freaky. I do know the main character is some kind of spy guy who knows kung-fu and loves the ladies so that puts him up there with 007. Its a real low budget project that makes you laugh and laugh and laugh. Throw your logic out the door and glue your jaw tight cause you're in for a real bumpy ride with this gem.

Come celebrate this sham we call life. We at the WPFS wanted to create a holiday tradition that you can toss off like a warm dirty dishcloth that has been soaking in the sink. Yes, come see Blood Freak with us. A virginal Elvis look-a-like smokes some pot, eats an experimental turkey, and becomes a giant fake-ass looking paper mache headed turkey vampire who still wants sex with his human girlfriend. Slap your mama now.

THE EBOLA SYNDROME
(1996) Directed by Herman Yau
The main character in this film does the most horrific things. I can't even begin to tell you about it.
I've already taken my Prylosec OTC to ease my ulcer. You may want to bring your own tummy aids after seeing what this guy does. Oh the pain. The pain. No small dogs or children will be admitted....and no food inspectors, because this film will only drive them friggin' insane.

I got my phone turned back on but our WPFS hotline is Kaput. We had hoped for a jolly good swell 20th anniversary show, but with me being called The Scariest Man on the Hill , everything has changed. I can not set foot in the Library of Congress because for the second time in 10 years, another LC employee has told the LC authorities that I am evil. A female co-worker accused me 10 years ago of going postal. She also said that she was a gospel star in Japan and performs surgery on lions at the zoo. This other woman has accused me of sneaking up on her when she was in a No Escape position. She refers to black people as n*ggers. She says:
"Well that's what they call each other." This woman is now in charge of my old staff. Do ya get the picture now. I'm outta money. I've been placed on indefinite suspension without pay since August 18 2009. I get no paycheck and the bills are piling up......but like a real trouper...the show must go on. The show tonight is called: " It Came from Somewhere Else". It's a indie underground sci-fi comedy. Next week we celebrate the films of William Castle.
Tuesday, October 06, 2009
Tonight we've got a rare film called Mr. Freedom. I'm on a public terminal at the library so you're going to have to do the research ya selves. Peace ...out.
Tuesday, September 08, 2009
We shall let you once again enjoy, 'KONGA'. Mad scientist turns lil chimpanze into a King-Kong like gorilla. Interspecies Sci-Fi. I've got some kind of bad cold or bronchitis and had to post-pone tonight's show. Am ever so cranky:)

The Warehouse is going under renovation. So the WPFS will not be screening there this AUGUST. Tonight is our last screening til September. Plus I'm having more trouble on the job and am fighting a 2 week suspension without pay. Ive been accused of more wrong doings. Kind of like 10 years ago when some coworkers decided to frame me for a crime that was never committed. Yes, the 1998 Going Postal fiasco. So I'll be doing that....I got my mind on my money and my money on my mind sort of thing. I'll keep you all posted. Later folks.

Treasure of the Amazon is what some people call an Indiana Jones rip-off. WRONG! The Indiana Jones films were rip-offs of earlier serial adventures. I'm not here trying to defend either one. I'm just saying that this film has more of a crazed reality to it. Greedy Honchoes looking for gold on sacred ground. Bad men trying to hustle the natives. Topless women on horses. Bad men threatening topless woman on a horse. Well anyways, these bad boys go floating down the river and no one trusts the other.
Hungry Hungry Hippos and other jungle creatures glaring at them from the jungle. Angry Angry natives staring at them from the jungle. All this comes together with a lot of backstabbing. Unlike the kind that goes on at your job.

When it comes to local filmmakers, Charles E. Cullen is one of my favorites. I never met the guy. I hope he's cool and all too. His movies are just plumb crazy goodness and Super Badass is one of his finest films.
The WPFS is screening this gem once again because it just has to be seen and we like showing it. So come on down tonight to The Warehouse and enjoy it with us. We will be giving away some great door-prizes tonight thanks to Allied Advertising. T-shirts and hats that have nothing to do with this movie but are movie related.

It’s ‘Mystery Science Theater’ meets Twitter
Normally, rampant texting in a movie theater is grounds for ejection.
But in St. Charles, it’s encouraged.
During a screening of ”Zoolander,” audience members could heckle the movie via text, then watch as their comments appeared onscreen with the film: “I want a comb-over like Trump” and “Breakdance fighting is becoming more popular in UFC.”
“I’ve described it as a mash-up of ‘Mystery Science Theater 3000’ and Twitter,” said Rien Heald, the Naperville inventor of MuVChat.
Thus far, MuVChat is in the early stages, with three test screenings at Classic Cinemas’ Charlestowne 18 theater. The next will be Saturday’s screening of “Dodgeball” at 10:30 p.m.
“Normally, you don’t want people texting on their phones, [the glowing screens] are kind of like fireflies inside the auditorium,” said Charlestowne manager Randy Pollock. “But if everybody is doing it, it’s fun.”
Brian Stewart, 35, of West Chicago found out about MuVChat through Facebook. He participated in its inaugural screening of “Zoolander” in January.
He describes the texting as “funny comments that you normally snicker to your friends, but this you share with the whole audience.”
The multitasking experience of texting, watching the movie and reading others’ comments didn’t distract him.
“The movies they are doing are mostly movies we’ve seen, so they’re cult classics,” said Stewart, a grocery store manager. “Mostly, we’re watching for the comments. You can’t talk out loud, but it’s cool if you’re able to use your phone.”
Heald said the MuVChat concept popped into his head while he was riding the train one day as he commuted from an Internet job from which he has since been laid off. He’s now developing MuVChat full time. Its allure tends to be generational, he said, adding that older viewers can be skeptical of it.
“Anybody who is in the Millennial to Gen Y demographic thinks it’s a very good idea. Texting is a big part of their lives,” said Heald, 46. “It’s those kids who really latch on to it.”
The system works this way: Audience members text to a central number, which runs their comments through software. The MuVChat software then displays the texts in a three-line configuration at the bottom of the screen, like a vertical ticker, as the movie plays. Sitting in the projector booth with a standard computer, Heald uses a profanity screening program and can, on the fly, filter comments and ban abusive users.
Most viewers make about 40 comments per movie, Heald said, and not all of them are snarky. Just as often, people will play “Name That Tune” when the soundtrack swells or ask other members of the audience to bring them popcorn.
Ultimately, Heald said, “it could be used in movie theaters and then it could be used in non-theatrical venues, like college campuses. It’s a community-building event.” Right now, however, Heald wants to keep his business plan secret.
MuVChat only shows second-run features, often comedies. Sam Raimi’s “Army of Darkness” has been a popular request for a future screening, and ”Office Space” is up next. Charlestowne manager Pollock said he’d like to see box office bombs such as Mariah Carey’s ”Glitter” and Ben Affleck’s ”Gigli” get the MuVChat treatment.
“You can’t do ‘em any harm,” Pollock said.
But does he think MuVChat will ever be available for new movies?
“You never know,” he said. “If it makes money, I’m sure Hollywood would do it with their new releases.”
MuVChat’s screening of “Dodgeball” is at 10:30 p.m. Saturday at Charlestowne 18, in St. Charles. Tickets: $5. More information: MuVChat.com.

an alien brain from outer space, Starman dons his manly spandex suit to fight for the right. As an adult man-child, I must admit, the crazy space aliens look so damn fantastically weird that they creep me out something fierce. If all goes well, I may try to sneak in some Screaming Jay Hawkins just for the hell of it. Why....I dunno!

A small town is over run by wild dogs. Well dog gone it. Let's just call them radioactive dogs. Radioactive crazy dogs are terrorizing a small town in this
what-has-science-gone-now-and done film. The dogs are chasing the townsfolk around like rabbits. Of course, there is a reason for all this but you are going to have to decipher it out yourself. The director must have stumbled upon a mother-lode of stock footage containing dogs cause that's what he keeps using to keep the suspense going while the real dogs in the film just look on off screen at their handlers and await some signal that never comes. I mean come on...who is terrified of chihuahua
or a sheep dog. Anyways kids, it's a real scary movie about DOGS. I'm talking thrills and chills folks. The final scene in this flick will have you howling.

Tonight, we will know no shame. Tonight, the WPFS presents the origins of
Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dewellers aka C.H.U.D.'s.
That's right we will be screening the 80's classic film 'C.H.U.D.' Find out how they came to be. What they love and what they eat. Find out why they prefer the underground living rooms. Tonight, look to the right of you and look to the left of you
because you may be closer to a C.H.U.D. than you think. Stay late and discover some dark secrets. Arrive early and discover the truth about local politicians from an underground source. Bring plenty of cash, the C.H.U.D. and WPFS both love and need money.
Bring an extra pair of underwear because you may just yet Pit your shants. Dr. Schlock may
pull out some crazy stuff tonight. So crazy, that we can't even hint at what will happen or what laws will be broken. Small adults and large children will not be admitted. If things get out of hand.... You will be tased!
Tuesday, May 05, 2009
The WPFS is screening another rare gem. It's an un-aired pilot for a Quinn/Martin television show that didn't get picked up by ABC. It stars Don Johnson, Jimmy Dean, and Mark Hamill. You see young Marky thinks that
Jimmy Dean is his dad or something and he's going around the city doing really crazy things. It looks like he gone over to the crazy force. If the audience is lucky...they may get to see Karen Black get chased by a whacked-out blood-thirsty Zuni doll.
All in all, it's going to be a bumpy ride. A bumpy ride indeed.

In the old days of WPFS we used to do Retro Nights almost every 2 months. We stopped because it was expensive and time consuming. Besides, a lot of stuff is out on DVD or You Tube.
Tonight, we dug out some oldie but goodie stuff. Some banned.
Some freaky. Some very offensive. Some very strange. We've put together a collection of freaky, hard-to-find, rarely seen,
and fun animation. We have 2 versions of Tobor the Eighth Man. One version is aimed at the younger audience and the other version is edited to be darker and aimed at an older crowd.
Hercules is here too and he brought along Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot. If the audience is nice. We'll show something really rare and something really really really crazy.
Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Last Ghost Standing is one of those films the WPFS wants everyone to see. It has all the elements of a Psychotronic film.
It's good. It's bad. It's silly. It's weird. It's funny. It's horrific.
A demon, perhaps Satan himself decides to torment the staff at a movie house on their last night before going out of business. A feces monster is created and terrorizes some hipster youths.
A woman's head is turned into a soccer ball and is kicked around the theater. The popcorn lady is tormented by some kind of snack monster. You get the picture. There are freaky monsters running all around and all because some demon wants to freak out some humans. The WPFS will be screening this wonderful freaky gem in the darkness of the Warehouse.
Heads up on an activity going on this April 30 at our old hang-out
in Arlington, Virginia. It is a film done by a local yocal and we all plan on going out there to see: Plague Town http://www.plaguetown.com/
I'll post more info later.

We venture once again into the realm of forgotten genres.
This time it's a WOMAN-IN-PRISON film. Forgotten and taboo like the Crazed Nun films. Vendetta is the happier of the WIP films because the heroine has the advantage of being
in shape and mentally ready for the challenges of Raw Female Sexual Energy behind bars. After all, she is a Stunt Woman. Her sister gets sent to prison and something bad happens to her. The stunt sister wants to know what happens. She gets herself thrown in the slammer and the women there think they have themselves another kitten to play with. She's a kitten alright..A Kitten with a whip and a pair of brass knuckles! Who wants a night time knuckle sandwich? The WPFS brings this wonderful family film to you in living color.

"Forgive us, Sugardaddy, for we have sinned."
"I'm afraid you have to die!"
A killer priest is on the loose in swinging England. Did he forget the 10 commandments or is he just plain out of his friggin
mind! We invite you to see The Confessional aka The House of Mortal Sin. This is the same director that brought you, 'House of Whipcord'. The last time we tried to screen this chilling gem, the VCR tore through the tape like cotton candy. Hopefully, tonight there won't be any strange boo-boo's...besides..
we've learned from out past mistakes. We always bring a back-up selection. There will be holy water at the bar for all your mortal thirsts.

is about a woman who drops out of society to shack up with Darwinian
castaways...cavemen even. It's a very strange sexy erotic psychotronic film that tickles the brain and then wets its finger to give you a Wet
Willy. Got that! Good! Come watch this unique and wonderful film that
takes you where most Tarzan films leave off. Banana anyone?
Tuesday, March 17, 2009
Hey Folks, come on out and show your support for us tonight at The Warehouse. They'll be laughs and gaffs galore. As always
if you get here early there will be something on the screen that will make your brain squeal and if you stay after the show, you may see something that you've never seen before. So think about that.
Tonight's door-prizes will consist of jumping fingers and runny
noses. I'm serious. We've got some crazy toys for you. They're waaay better than YOGA. You can't get anymore serious than that. So whadda say? Entertainment for under 5 dollars!?
Thursday, March 12, 2009
for our opening night.
Just a simple setup. Nothing too fancy. Bring as many people as possible because I want to show people that we do exist and are no longer afraid of the light. I do want to thank the management at
The Aroma Bar on Connecticut Ave N.W. for being our back-up screening venue. I chose The
Warehouse because it was smoke-free. The
Aroma Bar has a smoking license and is a cigar bar. The back room we would have been in is smoke-free. That is all for now.
Saturday, March 07, 2009
Here it is folks, the middle of March and we have a new screening room. The Warehouse Theater at 1021 7th street N.W.
in Washington,D.C. We did a lil film festival here a few years ago and now we're back. It's a very intimate place and we hope you will join us on Saint Patricks Day March 17 2009 at
8:00p.m. for Prime Time. This is one of those spoof films that fell between the cracks but we dug it up for some needed laughs.
In the vein of The Groove Tube and The Kentucky Fried Movie this film is their bastard cousin. It even has
Kinky Friedman singing a funny booger song. So mark down your calendar and loosen you pants because it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Thursday, March 05, 2009
Greetings People of Earth! This is The WPFS

Have no fear or worries you Psychonites. We shall be in new digs by the end of this month. With the weather and my health, I
had to slow things down a bit. A screening room has been found.
I'm just in the process of finding a back-up, just in case things don't work out. Being homeless and not being able to share with you fine folks some funky films has made me restless. In the past few weeks of my insomnia, I've seen some gems that'll just make you smack your boss upside the head. I'm talking pure Psychotronic mind-jive. The kind stuff that makes you drink bottled water when there's already free water in the sink. Yeah, that kind.
On a more serious note. Robert Haggiag, 95, Libyan film producer (Candy) passed away on Feburary 28 2009.
Al Lewis, 84, American television host of the Uncle Al Show
passed on Feburary 28 2009
Clarence Swensen, 91, American actor (The Wizard of Oz Munchkin) passed away on February 25 2009.

I have just finished 3 weeks of jury duty. Now, it's back to business.
- Rock and roll.
- Groupies by the dozen.
- Topless teens.
- A crazed slasher.
- A band called The Clowns and they dress like mimes.
I don't like rating movies or say that they are good or bad, but I will say that Terror on Tour is jaw-droppable. Meaning that your jaw will drop and bounce around the room like a kangaroo on pcp. Yes! This film has to be seen by a proper deserving WPFS audience by all means! It will be my duty to hire another jive-ass non-certified doctor or nurse to re-attach the fallen jaws. Since I am Doctor Schlock, I volunteer myself because I have seen this film, thus I have the knowledge and expertise to get the WPFS members through a screening of this has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed gem of a flick. We have not set a date or found a club for our screenings. I am just so excited to be out of jury duty and to have seen this film. Now I just want to share it with everyone. I feel it is my duty to please your psychotronic booties. So bear with me as I venture out once more in search of a place to screen these psychotronis wonders. These films must be seen by a respective audience. So out I go, into the future because that is where you and I will spend the rest of our lives!
Wednesday, February 11, 2009
I've talked to one club manager and he has agreed to let us show our films at his joint. The deal is not sealed and I don't want to jinx it. So I won't give you the name of the club, but I will give you some clues:
It is on the Red Line.
It has a smoking license (you can smoke at the bar but not in the screening room.)
There is no kitchen (you are allowed to bring food in from the neighboring restaurants.)
It is in D.C. (in a safe neighborhood.)
It will be temporary, but at least we can share some funky films with our freaky friends again.

7 injured when cab hits nightclub
Police told the Washington Post that none of the injuries at Solly's U Street Tavern appeared to be life threatening. The driver of the cab was reportedly one of those who were injured, the newspaper said.
After the cab hit the club, "the wheels were still turning, so the place was filling up with smoke," an employee said, adding, "we got everybody out pretty fast."
The cause of the 12:15 a.m. crash was not immediately known, the Post said.

Ugh! They've semi chosen me for a jury!
I have to report again on Tuesday Jan. 27th.
I had jury duty on my day off! UGH! I don't have a cellphone or a laptop. I have no way of communicating with any one. Arrgh!
I ask again of any of youse regulars might want to do some foot work for the old WPFS by going to a joint and putting in a good word for us about needing a space. MY HEAD IS READY TO BURST! Keep watching the skies!
Thursday, January 22, 2009
With all the celebrations going on in town, I had to put off my footwork for new locations. I shall return to them tonight.
Earlier last week, I had dropped by Recessions on L street.
It was crowded and hot. I did not get to talk to the management.
I'm really worried about transportation. For you folks that mentioned The Big Hunt, well..we had a strange falling out with them a few years back..but times have changed. Just like at Chief Ikes where we were kicked out a few years ago.
Solly's is still on the list. WMATA has launched a new shuttle
bus that runs around Union Station and other joints in that realm. The shuttle will drop you off in front of The Atlas on H street and that's near The Palace of Wonders. If any of you
happen to drop by any clubs, put in a mention about us so we can get our foot in the door. Word of mouth is so important in this bizness and we thank you for your support.
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
I was not able to get together with the folks at Chief Ikes' last night. I was....tempted to go by the Meeting Place to see how their 3rd anniversary party went, but instead I treated myself to a Jumbo slice of pizza and called it a night. I start jury duty on Friday so that puts another curve ball in my schedule. Please keep those suggestions coming...and think about the places I mentioned earlier. From the list I gave you, which ones do you all prefer. Email me back your choices.
Tuesday, January 13, 2009
Hey folks, The WPFS is still alive! I'm now trying to drop by all the clubs that people have suggested in the past week. I got sidetracked with a cracked tooth and have seen 2 dentists in 2 weeks. I'm now back in action and will check out the layout at Chief Ike's Mambo Room on Columbia Road in N.W. DC. We were there a few years ago and have been invited back. The owner of Solly's Tavern has given us an invitation, but I haven't set up an appointment yet with him to check out their layout. Word has been put out on the street about us to The Black Cat so I need to get back to them. We've done a few shows there before. A few people have mentioned Wonderland, 1409 Playbill Cafe, Recessions, The Palace of Wonders, Bourbon, and The Red Derby. I've got to do the math and figure out things like transportation and comfortability. I thank you all for the help and the suggestions. Check back here and our webpage at www.wpfs.org for more updates. Until next time......
Wednesday, January 07, 2009
our patrons would like a separate screening room away from the loud bar patrons. We had 25 people show up on a blisstery night. Each person had a least two to three drinks and at least one meal so do the math. A $4 dollar beer times 3: $12. Throw in a hamburger for $5: $17. Now multiply by 25: $425! On a bad night too. Not too shabby. In the next few days, we'll be meeting with bar managers in several clubs to see what is best for the WPFS so come back here for the latest info and check our website at http://www.wpfs.org

Hey Folks! Megaforce is one of the manliest testosterone filled
movies we've shown since Sean Connery in Zardoz. I mean, come on..men in spandex...fast cars..submissive women..a planet at war..mega-motorcycles..and guns! Woo-wee! I know this for sure..
some very sensitive people will be offended by all the manly roly poly dialogue thrust at them. Uhn! Is there a plot? Uhm!?
Who cares! By the end of the night, you'll be eating raw meat and will have grown hair around your ankles. Hope you can make it down tonight cause it might just be our final night at the Meeting Place. We had problems last week with the VCR so if it happens again, I'll be bringing a back-up film to atone for our manly sins. Thanks for all the responses we received about finding a new screening place. They were much appreciated. Many thanks.
