Six years and one more show to begin the seventh. Tonight is bound to be entertaining in a number of mostly objective ways. Quality is, this month as always, job number one here at Kung Fu Grindhouse.
Night of the Lepus - 7:00pm - It's been a while since we had a giant monster, or animals gone wild, so we thought it might be fun to combine the two. Fluffy bunny terror!
Tiger Claws II - 8:30 - Producer Jalal Merhi returns to the screen with his inflated ego flopped out for everyone to see. Cynthia Rothrock and Bolo Yeung appear in supporting roles which don't quite match up to the plotline in the first film.That hardly matters as Merhi and Rothrock entertain a painfully one sided relationship while tracking down the surprisingly less sinister than usual Yeung in the first installment of our High-Quality Bolo Double Feature.
Breathing Fire - 10:00 - Two brothers, one an adopted Vietnamese orphan, get involved in a criminal showdown between several Vietnam veterans. One of the 'Nam vets is their dad whose gang robs a bank and then must face off against another Vet on the other side of the law. A plethora of WTF moments follow in the finest schlocky fashion as Bolo Yeung tears up the screen once again.
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.
