For those of you who were at the last show and heard us announce the June date as the 21st, you are not crazy. Due to unforseen carpet replacement circumstances, KFG has been pushed back to the 28th. Same show different day. Check it out:
7pm - Men Behind the Sun: A Chinese war horror film about the Japanese occupation during World War II, this one has to be seen to be believed. Gruesome and gory to the maximum, you've been warned.
8:30pm - Mystery of Chessboxing: A young upstart must learn the mysterious "Chessboxing" style in order to defeat the Ghost Face Killer who has been terrorizing the countryside. Classic Chinese kung-fu from the 70's. I think some minor musical group might have written a song or two based on this film.
10pm - Blind Fury: Rutger Hauer is a blind Vietnam veteran who is trained in sword techniques during his recovery in Thailand. Upon his return to the States he fights crime, blind Vietnam veteran ninja style.
Kung Fu Grindhouse began as an effort to re-expose the badly decayed carcass of exploitation film history to a fresh audience of cinemaphiles. For nine years and counting we've tracked down the tastiest and trashiest forgotten and low-profile films and shown them to our friends in the hope that they will join us in preserving the memories of many a bygone movie era. The purpose of KFG is and always has been to encourage people to revisit and pursue these films on their own and to discover new ones for themselves.
All the films we show are from our personal collection, and we never charge a cover. Usually the third Monday of every month at the Sunset Tavern in Ballard Washington. 6pm till done.
