A carefully curated collection of pizza party classics, fist explosions, international adrenaline-pumpers, ‘80s funbombs, white-hot laugh factories, total freakazoids and more. But this is no MST3K chucklethon; this is a dedicated study of all that is, and can be, AWESOME. Nothing makes us happier than: 1) B-list pics delivering A-list thrills; and 2) the glorious time when the weathered faces of Warren Oates and Charles Bronson were marquee idols.

HEAVY MIDNITES: Centipede Horror

9/6 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

When one of last October’s midnight movie watch-a-thon winners picked the notorious gross-out Centipede Horror, we figured we were finally up to the challenge. And this flick is definitely not child’s play (even for those without chilopodophobia, the fear of centipedes), for it’s both as deliriously over the top as its legacy promises, and the cinematic definition of “not for civilians.” Heck, SFX icon Tom Savini once called this “the sickest film I’ve ever seen.” But viewers with strong stomachs, twisted minds and a love for surreal sights one cannot unsee will find a wonderland of creepy, crawly, multi-legged mini-monsters, black magic sorcery and more weird shit than you ever thought possible. And like most ‘80s Hong Kong fantasy exports, it’s totally wild and completely unpredictable, packed with voodoo priests, flying flaming chicken zombies, wizard battles, bug-puking and other nightmarish visuals. There’s even time for an extended flashback to show just how grandpa got us into this mess in the first place.
Dir. Keith Li, 1982, 35mm, 93 min.

HEAVY MIDNITES: Future-Kill (a tribute to Marilyn Burns)

9/13 - MIDNITE
$12/free for members

An unholy alliance of Warriors-styled action thrills (this time through a post-nuke hellzone) and braindead frat house comedy (complete with a Belushi-esque fat guy), Future-Kill is undeniably weird outsider exploitation. When a group of sex-crazed college boys are challenged to venture into a downtown wasteland, they run head-first into Splatter and his mutant gang of anti-nuke protesters. Needless to say, their fun-filled joyride does not end well. One of the great video store classics, the Austin-lensed, ultra-low-budget Future-Kill reunites Texas Chainaw Massacre stars Edwin Neal and Marilyn Burns (RIP), features the first on-screen role for Cinefamily friend John Hawkes, and perhaps is most well-known for its iconic H.R. Giger (RIP again) poster art. It’s also filled to the brim with chaotic grime, gore effects, future fashion, real-life punk rockers, bad dude attitude and a surprisingly poetic anti-violence philosophy. You’ve never seen anything quite like it!
Dir. Ronald W. Moore, 1985, 35mm, 89 min.
