DOUBLE-FEATURE OF OBSCURE HORROR INSANITY
AT RERUN THEATER ON 10/29
reRun Gastropub Theater and Severin Films partner to host midnight double-bill
BROOKLYN, NY, October 25th, 2010 - Severin Films, distributors of the midnight movie sensation BIRDEMIC: SHOCK AND TERROR, today announced they will be sponsoring a night of obscure horror appreciation at reRun Theater on Friday, October 29th 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).
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!"
reRun is reBar's (http://www.rebarnyc.com) new independent movie theater - located just down the hall from the restaurant. Featuring 60 reclaimed car seats, a full bar and gourmet snack counter, and a twelve foot screen, reRun offers just the kind of intimate art-house theater experience you'd expect from the creators of funky gastropub reBar.
Severin Films was formed in 2006 with offices in Los Angeles and London. Their previous releases include Richard Stanley's restored HARDWARE, the midnight movie sensation BIRDEMIC: SHOCK & TERROR, recent Goya Award winner Jess Franco's MACUMBA SEXUAL and BLOODY MOON, pioneering 80s sex-comedy SCREWBALLS, the unrated Director's Cut of Just Jaeckin's GWENDOLINE, Oscar®-nominee Patrice Leconte's PERFUME OF YVONNE and THE HAIRDRESSER'S HUSBAND and Enzo Castellari's original action classic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS.
