CFF: GIRLS SCHOOL SCREAMERS + BLADES Double-feature
THE CINEDELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL presents

Sunday, April 7, 2013, 7:00 PM
PHILLY '80S HORROR DOUBLE FEATURE
GIRLS SCHOOL SCREAMERS (1986) and BLADES (1989)

A double-feature of Philly-area '80s horror with special guests BLADES director/co-writer Thomas Rondinella and associate producer/co-writer William Pace.

A group of students from the Trinity School for Girls are tasked with cataloguing the inventory of a vast mansion.  The bodies begin to pile up as a secret family history is revealed in this Satanic-tinged ghost story.  Filled with lo-tech gore effects, tedious banter, and a cast of amateurs that are shooting well below their actual ages, the Mount Airy-shot GIRLS SCHOOL SCREAMERS is great fun for the low budget slasher-inclined.

BLADES is the story of a killer lawnmower that stalks its prey on a golf course in South Jersey.  F'real.  Dismembered body parts begin appearing on the grounds of the Tall Grass Country Club shortly after the arrival of handsome golf pro Roy Kent.  The only one who can stop the murders is disgraced former groundskeeper Deke Slade, a badass survivalist type who shares a history with the menacing machine.  Filmed at a nine hole golf course in Rio Grande, NJ, BLADES succeeds in maintaining a strange, TWIN PEAKS-like atmosphere of dark comedy and danger.  Are the actors in on the joke?  It's tough to tell, and that's part of the fun.

John P. Finnegan recruited Thomas Rondinella and William Pace to work on GSS while they were still students at NYU, they each played multiple roles on the crew.  Finnegan then chose Rondinella to direct his follow up film, BLADES, which was co-written by Rondinella and Pace with Finnegan acting as producer.

Advance tix are $10, no refunds or exchanges.

The Cinedelphia Film Festival is a Philly-centric celebration of Philly film running from April 4-27, 2013.
