The Two Boots Pioneer Theater, New York’s Showplace for Independent Cinema, presents an entire month dedicated to horror and cult film programming, including World Premieres of brand-new indies, double feature retro-trash classics, horror shorts, bigfoot movies, free screenings, special guests every night and much, much more! Some highlights:
Trailer Park Of Terror
(Opens 10/3 @ 7PM)
World Premiere! Based on the Imperium Comics series of the same name and directed by Steven Goldmann, Trailer Park of Terror concerns the evil deeds of undead Norma (Nichole Hiltz) and a group of white-trash ghouls who haunt the titular locale. The film also stars Devil’s Rejects alumni Lew Temple and Priscilla Barnes, as well as Michelle Lee, Ed Corbin, Duane (Feast) Whitaker and Myk Watford. Drac FX created the film’s gruesome makeup.
Tokyo Gore Police
(Opens 10/3 @ 9PM)
This gleeful sci-fi destructo party mixes Starship Troopers with Robocop, then grafts the love child of Shinya Tsukamoto and David Cronenberg to its back, screaming with body horror, and douses itself in a waterfall of thick, bubbling gore. Packed to its mutated gills with transgressive imagery, this flick knows just when to wink while chewing your head off with a crocodile vagina monster. Behind the camera are some of the most talented filmmakers to emerge from Japan in recent years.
Daggers: The Short Festival Of Short Horrors
(10/22 & 10/23)
Screamfest, Dead by Dawn, Puchon, FanTasia—horror fans know these as world-class showcases.
