I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Where's the usual barely witty and disparaging synopses of these films guys? C'mon!" Well the truth is that when I usually write these things, I've seen the films at least once, maybe twice already. This time however, Phill put together an almost totally secret show featuring a lineup that was a mystery even to me until practically the last minute. Unlike the shows I put together, I have total faith in my comrade's ability to concoct an unassailably rad cinematic assault to blow your mind. He has done so every single time in the past.
In this case, I have yet to see two of the films on the roster for March 21st, it is going to be as much a surprise for me as it is for you. That said, I put together a brief lineup roster with vague and mostly fabricated synopses:
Low Blow - 7:00 - Low budget “action” film starring Leo Fong as a private dick who doesn’t seem to care about his car, or parking it.
Ring of Steel - 8:30 - Watch Ren-Fair nerds fight each other to the death for your amusement. Feels good doesn’t it?
TC 2000 - 10:00 - Post-Apocalyptic sci-fi martial arts actioner starring Billy "Tae-Bo" Blanks, Bolo "Chinese Hercules" Yeung and Mathias "Tiny Head" Hues in wall to wall Terminator rip-off robo-fighting!
Hahahaha! This is going to be fantastic. See you then!
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.
