BLOOD & FLESH: THE REEL LIFE & GHASTLY DEATH OF AL ADAMSON
Dir. David Gregory
Documentary, USA, 2019, English, 90 min.
“Horror Film Director Found Slain, Buried Under Floor”, screamed the 1995 headlines read around the world. But the truth behind the wild life of Al Adamson – including the production of such low budget B-movies as SATAN’S SADISTS, DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN and THE NAUGHTY STEWARDESSES – and his grisly death reveals perhaps the most bizarre career in Hollywood history. BLOOD & FLESH is chronicle of bikers, go-go dancers, porn stars, aging actors, freak-out girls, Charles Manson, Colonel Sanders, alien conspiracies and homicidal contractors.
THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE
Dir. Amy Holden Jones
Horror, USA, 1982, English, 77 min.
Directed by women and written as a commentary on the inherent sexism of slasher films by feminist icon Rita Mae Brown — but filmed completely straight — SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE became terrific inside joke. A group of high school girls decide to throw a slumber party that turns into a night of terror as an escaped lunatic decides to party crash. Although written with a feminist slant, the film doesn’t exactly steer away from the slasher cliches. In fact, it plays it completely straight and embraces them. That’s where the humor comes from. Especially with the most on the nose phallus of all time used by a psychotic killer: an industrial power drill. With its stylized photography, plot points involving pizza and an endlessly cool homemade synth score, SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE is a drop-dead masterpiece of subversive trash-horror.

IMAGES OF APARTHEID: FILMMAKING ON THE FRINGE IN THE OLD SOUTH AFRICA
Dir. Calum Waddell
Documentary, UK, South Africa, 2018, English, 84 min.
A historical documentary on the largely unknown period of South African B-movies, and the later cinematic identity of the nation, that was established under the apartheid regime – from Zulu language spaghetti westerns to gangster thrillers, low budget home invasion horror and much, much more!
Dir. Nabwana I.G.G.
Action, Uganda, 2019, Swahili, English, 82 min.
Welcome to Wakaliwood, Uganda: home of “DA BEST OF DA BEST MOVIES!” and the vanguards of DIY commando cinema. Under the guidance of writer/producer/director Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey (IGG) and with producer/star Alan Ssali Hofmanis, this crack crew of self-taught filmmakers and martial arts aficionados produce dozens of gonzo action films in the Kampala ghetto with budgets that rarely exceed $200 USD. Utilizing scrap parts to build computers, machine guns and a full-sized Huey helicopter, these real-life superheroes inspire more heart, imagination and soul than a thousand Hollywood blockbusters. In the latest Wakaliwood’s film CRAZY WORLD, a gang of child-snatching mobsters make a fatal mistake when they kidnap the Waka Stars, a team of pint-sized kung-fu masters who soon turn their cunning wits and deadly skills upon their captors.
08.29 ŠEŠTADIENIS / WALERIAN BOROWCZYK
LOVE EXPRESS: THE DISAPPEARANCE OF WALERIAN BOROWCZYK
Dir. Kuba Mikurda
Documentary, Poland, Estonia, 2018, French, English, Polish, Italian, 82 min.
A documentary celebrating the work of Walerian Borowczyk, a director of unparalleled sensitivity, revered in the 1970s, who was later labeled as a maker of erotic movies. Love Express features interviews with his closest collaborators, filmmakers and leading intellectuals who put his work into perspective, including Terry Gilliam, Bertrand Bonello, Neil Jordan, Andrzej Wajda, Patrice Leconte and Slavoj Zizek. It offers a rare insight into Walerian Borowczyk’s work and poses questions about artistic freedom.
THE STRANGE CASE OF DOCTOR JEKYLL & MISS OSBOURNE
Dir. Walerian Borowczyk
Horror, Sci-Fi, France, Germany, 1981, French, English, 91 min.
It’s the engagement party for brilliant young Dr Henry Jekyll and his fiancée, the beautiful Fanny Osbourne, attended by various pillars of Victorian society, including the astonishing Patrick Magee in one of his final roles. But when people are found raped and murdered outside and ultimately inside the house, it becomes clear that a madman has broken in to disrupt the festivities – but who is he? And why does Dr Jekyll keep sneaking off to his laboratory? Walerian Borowczyk’s visually stunning adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s much-filmed tale is crammed with wildly imaginative and outrageously perverse touches characteristic of the man who scandalised audiences with IMMORAL TALES and THE BEAST, not least the explicitly sexualised nature of Mr Hyde’s primal urges.
08.30 SEKMADIENIS / ŠVENTADIENIS SU ŠĖTONU
Dir. Penny Lane
Documentary, USA, 2019, English, 95 min.
A look at the intersection of religion and activism, tracing the rise of The Satanic Temple: only six years old and already one of the most controversial religious movements in American history. The Temple is calling for a Satanic revolution to save the nation’s soul. But are they for real?
Everything Is Terrible! presents: THE GREAT SATAN
Dir. Everything Is Terrible!
Comedy, Horror, Found footage, USA, 2018, English, 80 min.
Since the dawn of time, man has searched for answers… and failed. But the fog of existence has finally cleared thanks to the eternal fruits of EIT!! With their longtime collaborator Lucifer, Everything Is Terrible! has ingested over 2,000 satanic panic, religious kook, and D-horror VHS tapes. They have recontextualized them and created a narrative feature that reminds us all who we are, why we are here, and what we should be doing with our paltry time on this dumb planet. And now they invite you to be an initiate of the psychedelic devotion of EIT! As you take your blood oath, your journey will brim with evangelical ducks, goopy ghouls, and sad white men who believe that Dungeons & Dragons summon actual horned demons. Be warned… If you really want to see your mind, you’ve got to be ready to rip your skull open.
