Student Bodies - 7:00pm - Long before Wes Craven's career tanked (which was pretty long ago) slasher movies (which Wes Craven was instrumental in defining) got mocked hardcore. In fact their shittyness was so mocked that they could be mocked shittily and it was still mockery. Got it?
Howling 2 - 8:30 - What wingnut French/Aussie director doesn't want to shoot his asinine nonsensical werewolf movie sequel off the cuff in Eastern Europe with a bunch of punkrockers and fake hair appliances? Sybil Danning was thinking the same thing when she signed up and tore her shirt off for this epic masterpiece of terrible celluloid perfection.
Drive - 10:00 - A former Stuntman cum director made an awesome kung fu movie starring the amazingly talented but sadly deadpan Mark Dacascos and a bunch of tired racist stereotypes. Not so oddly, if you are aware of the unfortunate bigotry, you can laugh at the ridiculousness of an otherwise awesome movie all the more knowing that you're smarter than that.
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.
