Celebrate Halloween week with our friends The King County Cinema Society! They have scared up an eclectic mix of gruesome and inappropriate shorts and features, at two venues (LaunchPad, Spectacle) over three days (Wednesday at 8; Thursday & Friday at midnight).
J-Horror Double Bill Wednesday:
A twisted double feature of inspired hyper-gore and pop-culture curios from Japan: Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl (dir. Yoshihiro Nishimura & Naoyuki Tomomatsu, 2009, 84min) and 964 Pinocchio(Shozin Fukui, 1991, 97min). The former is a tragic love triangle with zero production value and cartoonish amounts of neck-blood fountain action. Description of the latter, courtesy of IMDB: “Pinocchio 964, lobotomised cyborg sex slave, is thrown out onto the street by his owners because of his inability to maintain an erection. He is befriended by a criminally insane, memory-wiped, homeless girl. Meanwhile, the corporate entity who manufactured and sold him plots to kill him because of his malfunction.” Vampire Girl trailer at their site.
Preceded by the recent short “Zombie in a Penguin Suit”
These screenings will be FREE with BYOB and popcorn provided.
Vampire Girl at 8pm; 964 Pinocchio at 9:30.
**Probably not appropriate for small children, squeamish adults, or anyone else, really**
