Severin Films, distributors of the midnight movie sensation Birdemic: Shock And Terror, is sponsoring a night of obscure horror appreciation at the reRun Theater tonight, October 29, at midnight. Billed as “an evening of top shelf cine-masochism” by Severin’s Evan Husney, the evening will consist of the unveiling of an obsessive assemblage of forgotten horror hilarity titled Brain Bludgeon, and Chester Turner’s essential shot-on-video omnibus film Tales From The Quadead Zone (1987). Check out the trailer and descriptions below, looks like a blast! Advanced tickets can be purchased here for only $3 (super cheap!), otherwise admission is free at the door if seats are left over.
BRAIN BLUDGEON / 2010 / 30 mins / edited by Evan Husney and Shal Ngo
Sewn together from hundreds of forgotten horror films, BRAIN BLUDGEON is a transcendental fusion of trash exposing the willing to everything curious, bizarre, hilarious and awful about no-budget genre films. Hot penny torture, exploding 3d skulls, brutal “de-fetusing”, raping zombies, and much more collide in this blissfully IQ-withering amalgamation of exploitation hell.
TALES FROM THE QUADEAD ZONE / 1987 / 61 mins
Chester Turner (BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL) is easily the most mysterious auteur to emerge from the `80s camcorder horror underground. TALES FROM THE QUADEAD ZONE centers on a bereaved mom who entertains her invisible son with three stories – rednecks fighting over sandwiches, a dead body dressed up as a clown and lastly, her own. Perhaps the single weirdest thing (coming from a long, long list) about QUADEAD is its poignant, surprisingly personal ending in what Bleeding Skull calls, “the greatest shot-on-video trash film of all time time… creepy, hysterical, surreal and well beyond explanation!”
