[Satanm-announce] October news - Trash Palace x 2!:
SATAN MACNUGGIT NEWS
* * * * *
September was a super-busy month in Satanville. The GSS Video Yearbook DVD debuted to raves, a mere 20 years after its VHS edition shocked the nation. Order your copy now before they're gone!
And the Trash On Wheels Film Party is a wrap! Seven very well-received shows rocked the regions from London to Montreal to Picton, and everyone who showed up had a great time. I never get tired of watching this stuff; let's do it again soon!
Lots in the works - zine fair season kicks into overdrive in November! - but for now, we're settling back into Toronto in style, with two big screenings at Trash Palace!
Friday, October 2 - A STAR IS LOST!
This 1974 film is a mind-boggling attempt by the National Film Board to produce a "Singin' in the Rain" style razzle-dazzle musical. Directed by John Howe (he also wrote the songs), a ton of showbiz glamour and glitter is given an almost cinema-verite treatment; the resulting concoction will make your head spin!
Friday, October 16 - THE LITTLE GIRL WHO LIVES DOWN THE LANE
Another Canadian film, Nicholas Gessner's 1977 opus is a minor classic, and a staple of 80s TV (however tonight's print is UNCUT). Jodie Foster plays a kid who lives alone with a secret in the basement, until the landlord's son - a creepy turn by Martin Sheen - starts making the moves on her. To round off this screening, we're including an incredible rarity, Sheen's extremely early (1961?1962?), Brandoesque turn as a juvenile delinquent in one of the most genuinely well-made educational films I've ever seen - "The Price Of A Life".
As usual these here flicks screen at 9:30 at Trash Palace's SECRET CINEMA - buy advance tickets at Eyesore Cinema, 801 Queen Street West, and the address is on the ticket. More info on our nefarious doings is available at www.trashpalace.ca .
See you there!
