Our January schedule

Happy New Year!

The Passenger and The Warehouse will be closed on the 4th so they will be no screening from us.

Jan 11 Night of the Bloody Apes (1969) dir. Rene Cordona Jr.
This is basically the directors remake of his earlier film 'Doctor of Doom' so he ups this one up with more female flesh and stock footage of an actual open heart surgery. The plot is about a babelicious female wrestler who is bummed out about her career in wrestling. A mad doctor wants to create a super wrestler so he attempts an ape to human heart transplant. Like with any mad doctor situations something goes wrong and the next thing you know..there's an ape-like creature gouging out eyeballs in the hood.

Jan.18 Grace Quigley (1984) dir. Anthony Harvey
Katherine Hepburn and Nick Nolte star in this dark comedy about euthanasia.."Say What!" Euthanasia! OMG!...OH it's a comedy. Carry on."
Katherine realizes that she doesn't want to end up old and fuzzled so she blackmails Nick Nolte into killing not just her, but her friends. Isn't that sweet. Now they can go out in blaze and glory.

Jan. 25 Blood Sucking Freaks (1976) dir. Joel M Reed
I remember seeing this at the Town Theater which is now the Woman's Museum. Two wino's were so intrigued by it that they didn't want go to the men's  room. Anyways, what intrigued them was this dark film of misogynist depravity. A poor man's Grand Guignol played out by 2 men who kidnap woman and turn them into savages. It's a comedy.
