It's true, after 84 straight months we're celebrating our seventh anniversary with some of our favorite movies of the last few years.
Awful Hour - Rescued VHS trash from the recycling bin of history resurfaces for sixty sweet minutes.
The Dirt Bike Kid - 7pm - Oedipal allegory and the kid from A Christmas Story combine into one hell of a Herbie the Love Bug knockoff.
Battle Wizard - 8:30 - The kung-fu laser beams begin in this film, a bizarre, no holds barred exception to the chop-socky rule. Giant snakes, a rubber gorilla and fire-breathing robotic chicken legs are only scratching the surface of this thing. It's amazing.
The Devil's Sword - 10:00 - The Indonesian film industry, while productive, has received little attention in the U.S. Fortunately this movie got a DVD release, and we thankfully return it to the screen at the Sunset. When the evil Alligator Queen kidnaps a village princess, it's up to Mandala to find The Devil's Sword and battle his way through a host of audacious monsters to rescue her. Horror, fantasy, kung-fu and laser-beams combine to make this one of the finest action films of all time.
Exciting changes are coming to Kung Fu Grindhouse, this April is going to be an awesome Anniversary show. We'll see you on the 23rd, and in the meantime, we've been holding out a long time for this but, LIKE US ON FACEBOOK.
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.
