"SUPERTRASH" 72 HR FEST OF MOVIES / MERCHANDISE / PERFORMANCE / ART EXHIBITION Feb 1-3, 2008, a weekend of 9 unforgettable movies, live burlesque dancers, the return of Famous Mysterious Actor, and a stunning exhibit of 're-imagined movie poster art' sponsored by Seattle publisher Fantagraphics.
THE MOVIES: RE-ANIMATOR (1985, Dir. Stuart Gordon, 95 mins) ...a masterpiece of hideous gore and faultless drama. MAD LOVE (1935, Dir. Karl Freund, 68 mins) ...Peter Lorre shines as a lust-bent doctor capable of anything! ROAD HOUSE (1989, Dir. Rowdy Herrington, 114 mins) ...the most macho-hot movie ever put out! PSYCH OUT (1968, Dir. Richard Rush, 101 mins) ...a sleazy expose of San Francisco 'free love' with Jack Nicholson as a stoner rocker on the trail of an acid casualty played by Bruce Dern-streaming-Jesus. ROBOCOP 2 (1990, Dir. Irvin Kershner, 117 mins) ...incredibly undervalued sequel, stuffed with maniacal design and misanthropic ideology, Frank Miller's first film job. BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA (1986, Dir. John Carpenter, 99 mins) ...no dis to Raging Bull, Scarface, or Blade Runner, but for select hordes, BTILC is the greatest 80s rush. BUFFALO 66 (1998, Dir. Vincent Gallo, 110 mins) ...a lowlife fantasy chock with feline romance, family crap, and noirish cruising...love or hate it, it's cool. RETURN OF THE DRAGON (1972, Dir. Bruce Lee, 100 mns) ...Bruce Lee versus Chuck Norris!!! NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968, Dir. George A. Romero, 96 mins) ...the one that makes you believe the dead will eat you.
SUPERTRASH is wild, perverse, beautiful, grotesque...subversively combining powers of Art and Trash into SUPERTRASH.
