THE GRINDHOUSE TRAILER SPECTACULAR
Various / 65min / 35mm
Climb aboard the exploitation starship as we travel to the outer reaches of cinematic insanity! In the 1970s and 80's, distributors trying to creatively sell strange movies in oversaturated markets unwittingly created some of the most mind-blowing pieces of cinema to ever be burned into celluloid. This is a lineup of the best of these movie previews, presented on 35mm. All the wildest scenes, strange taglines, and oddball promotional gimmicks crammed into two minute cinematic rollercoaster rides. We'll see Italian horror, blaxploitation, hicksploitation, sexploitation, kung fu insanity, revenge films and so much more.
GATES OF HELL
Lucio Fulci / 1980, Italy / 90min / 35mm
A surreal Italian gutmuncher from gore-maestro Lucio Fulci! A priest commits suicide and accidentally opens the gateway to hell. The rotting dead rise from their graves to feed on the living in gruesome fashion, while a psychic and a journalist attempt to stop the rancid carnage. This is Lucio Fulci at his finest, so prepare yourself for zombie-killing, head-drilling, intestine-spilling mayhem! Powered by Fabio Frizzi's creepy soundtrack and top notch special effects.
