From 1968 to 2015, two weirdo horror films created and set in New York…. Toast our city’s infinite variety and wild spirit following Bushwig festival of drag. Films provided by Horror Boobs and Something Weird Video. Presented by Druid Underground Film Festival for the Horror Sundays series.
The Toxic Retards (2015)
Carl J Sukenick has been making horror movies in his NYC apartment for the last 30 years. As a filmmaker he uses the medium of horror as a means of therapy to navigate his mental illness. The Toxic Retards is the penultimate example of every idiosyncratic technique Sukenick has developed in his career. Groundbreaking, spellbinding and horrifying.
Confessions of a Psycho Cat (1968)
A wealthy, psychotic seductress invites three notorious tough-as-nails men (including actual boxing legend Jake La Motta) to her swanky trophy room saying she’ll give them each $100,000 “if you can stay alive in Manhattan for 24 hours!” Thus begins an epically sleazy play on The Most Dangerous Game. A true NYC horror oddity and the wildest murder scene ever shot in the middle of Central Park.
DJ Drew Redmond and his guest of the week will be spinning wild ass bizarro rock 45s before and after the screenings!
