CONvergence Horrorshow 2007
Friday July 6th 9:00pm-11:00pm Tokyo Zombie

From the writer of Takashi Miike’s “Ichi the Killer” and “Gozu” comes this buddie-movie-zombie -horror-comedy. Fujio and Mitsuo go from working in their local fire extinguisher factory to battling hordes of the undead that have been turned into UFC-style fighters by the nations’ dastardly elite. Equal parts slapstick, blood, and one really bad hair day.

Friday July 6th 11:00pm-1:00am Evil Aliens

British cable TV team sets off to a remote Welsh farm in search of little green men. Instead they find a case of intergalactic impregnation, cattle mutilation and a band of very pissed off "Predator" wannabes. Enough over-the-top gore for everyone, so bring a friend and a towel...and let me know if you find my harvester combine keys.

Saturday July 7th 1:00am-3:00am Boxer’s Omen

You have never seen anything like this outrageous Shaw Brothers’ production. Ancient curses!!! Rampaging monsters!!! Animated crocodile skeletons!!! Flying human heads!!! The Boxer’s Omen has all this and so much more.

A completely insane Hong Kong black magic freak-out!!!

Saturday July 7th 3:00am-5:00am Yaji and Kita: The Midnight Pilgrims

Here it is! The world’s first gay-junkie-samurai-biker-road-trip-musical. Trip being the operative word as Yaji and Kita journey from ancient Edo to the shrine at Ise. On the way they encounter magic mushrooms, Japan’s worst singer, and a police detective with a very unhealthy obsession with bananas. Does it make any sense? Of course not. Should you be watching this? It’s three in the morning and you’re drunk. What do you think?

Saturday July 7th 11:00am-1:00pm War of the Gargantuas

One of Ishiro Honda’s best features. Giant evil green monster battles giant good brown monster in a fight to the death on the streets of Japan. Buildings are destroyed. Cities are leveled. Toho fans rejoice. It may not be Godzilla, but the big guy would be proud.

Saturday July 7th 1:00pm-3:00pm The Woman in Black

Super creepy British ghost movie. A lawyer is sent to settle the estate of a dead client and encounters lady of the title. Things go from goose-bump scary to crap-your-pants terrifying when the lawyer discovers the secret of the Woman in Black. We’re showing this during the day, so that everybody doesn’t lock themselves in their rooms for the rest of the Con. You can thank us later.

Saturday July 7th 3:00pm-5:00pm 3 Dev Adam

“Spider-Man 3” not do it for you? Then try this Turkish version that pits an evil green Spider-Man and his army of carbon karate killers against a vacationing Captain America and his pal Santo. It may not have million dollar CGI effects, it may not have a Hollywood A cast, and it certainly doesn’t have an unnecessary Stan Lee cameo. What does it have? Lousy picture quality and 50% more subtitles. Hey, at least you don’t have to pay eight bucks.

Saturday July 7th 5:00pm-7:00pm Planetfall

Locally produced balls to the wall neo-spaghetti-outer-space adventure. This is probably the best local genre film produced to date. Check it out!

Saturday July 7th 7:00pm-9:00pm A Chinese Ghost Story

Remember back to the late 80’s when Hong Kong cinema was the coolest thing going? Poor young tax collectors would fall in love with spirits. Swordsmen would break out in song at the drop of a hat. Fireball hurling wizards would battle evil giant tongues for the souls of sexy female ghosts. No, I’m not just making this stuff up. Yet another must-see Asian classic.

Saturday July 7th 9:00pm-11:00pm Zebraman

Sho Aikawa is a down on his luck elementary school teacher obsessed with Zebraman, a Japanese superhero show that ran only seven episodes. He creates his own Zebraman costume to impress one of his students and realizes that he is slowly gaining his idol’s powers. This is another gem from director Takashi Miike that is still unreleased in the US.

Saturday July 7th 11:00pm-1:00am Street Trash

This isthe most politically correct, sentimental, family film being shown anywhere at Convergence. A pair of runaways hole up in a junkyard where they are taking in by a bunch of fun-loving hobos. Wacky adventures ensue as the group battles over a case of cheap wine and the girlfriend of a local hood. Be sure not to miss cinema’s finest ode to Kubrick’s masterpiece “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Bring a date or better yet bring your mom. It’s one they’ll never forget.

Sunday July 8th 1:00am-3:00am Meatball Machine

Splatterific sci-fi riff on the cyber-punk theme as alien parasites invade Earth and turn humans into biomechanical weapons. Hyperkinetic no-hold-barred gorefest that manages to fit in an unlikely romance, alien ooze and plenty of tentacles in all the wrong places. More geekshow Japanese horror which makes “Tetsuo” look like a Pixar flick.

Cinema Apocalypse: The Martian Chronic(cles) '06 (xpost)
Cinema Apocalypse: Martian Chronic(les) ‘06
MarsCon ’06 Schedule
An ordeal of outré cinema the likes of which you’ll seldom see screened!

MarsCon 2006
March 3-5, 2006
Holiday Inn Select, Bloomington, MN
Admission free with Convention admission!


Starts:
Friday, March 3rd

9:00 pm-11:00 pm Braindead

Not to be missed! This is the completely and totally uncut print of Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive. More gore, more guts, and no pointy-eared elves!

“I kick ass for the Lord.” Watch yer back Elvis!

11:00 pm-1:00 am The 13th District

Written and produced by Luc Besson (Leon), this is another near-future dystopia, like Escape from New York with a lot less Kurt Russell, and a whole lot more martial arts butt-kicking. Areas of Paris have been walled off to contain the most dangerous criminals and only one man can protect the innocent folks trapped inside.

Best martial arts scenes since Ong-Bak. Really. You have seen Ong-Bak, haven’t you?

1:00 am-3:00 am Mystics In Bali

Jaw-dropping Indonesian horror flick that features a foreign gal who gets the bright idea to study black magic abroad and runs afoul of a local witch doctor, of course. Sure the special effects are f’ing terrible and the plot makes little sense, but where else at MarsCon are you going to see a flying severed head with dangling entrails go after a pregnant chick’s fetus?

Answer me that, smarty-pants!

3:00 am-5:00am Burial Ground

An archeologist foolishly raises a group of maggot-ridden monks and they spend the next ninety minutes reminding us why the Italians were the true successors to Romero’s living dead royal lineage. Forget those new-fangled attempts at zombie mayhem, because it was all done better and redder over two decades ago. Plus this could have the creepiest kid played by a midget in cinema history.


9:00 am-11:00am Spook Warfare

Coolest monster mash since Dracula met the Wolfman. Strange group of monsters unite to take on a hideous vampire demon. Or is it a demon vampire? Can the army of the Yokai defeat the evil Diamon and save all the villagers from certain death and an afterlife as the unholy undead? So many questions, but I’ll put my money on the umbrella monster or snake-neck lady any day.

11:00 am- 1:00 pm Black Sabbath

Bava meets Boris in this classic Italian chiller. First up is “The Telephone”; call girl Rosy is stalked by ex-boyfriend Frank. She calls a friend for comfort, but things are not as they seem. Next up is “The Wurdulak” with Boris Karloff: A young man finds refuge in a house waiting for the return of daddy dearest. Daddy shows up, but he is not alone. Finally, in “The Drop of Water”, a woman goes to prepare the corpse of a dead medium and pockets some of the dead woman’s valuables. Needless to say, bad idea.

Mario Bava at his terrifying best. Tim Burton likes it too.


1:00 pm-3:00 pm Call of Cthulhu

The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society produced this silent film of one of the master of cosmic horror’s greatest stories. Presented in “Mythoscope”, this mixes modern and vintage styles to create the one of the most faithful adaptations of Lovecraft ever brought to screen.

A must-see for fans of Lovecraft and dark fantasy.


3:00 pm-5:00 pm One Dark Night

Underrated 80’s teen horror flick has “cute-as-a-button” Meg Tilly battling “not-so-cute as-a-button” Karl Raymar, a psychic vampire with a bizarre lust for high school girls and a hatred of silverware. Meg must spend the night in a mausoleum with Raymar’s freshly interred corpse. Meg’s sorority sisters decide to get all “Scare Tactics” on her ass and all hell breaks loose.

Flock of Seagulls haircuts and parachute pants are encouraged but optional.

5:00 pm-7:00 pm Save the Green Planet

Poor, crazy Lee thinks aliens are invading and it’s up to him to save the Earth. He kidnaps the CEO of one of Korea’s biggest companies whom Lee is sure is in on the galactic invasion plot and tortures him in his basement. Equal parts horror, sci-fi, and comedy; this is easily one of the best of recent South Korean cinema.

9:00 pm-11:00 pm Descent

Anyone who has seen Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers knows this dude has the horror chops. This is his second feature and is easily the best horror film of 2005. A group of friends is trapped in a cave and realize they are not alone. Fast paced, gory and just plain bring-an-extra-pair-of-pants terrifying, this is one not to be missed.

See it here before it’s butchered for a US release.

11:00 pm-1:00 am Sympathy for Lady Vengeance

Third in Chan-wook Park’s vengeance Trilogy, this follows Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and the masterfull Old Boy. The plot is simple: Lee Geum-Ja goes to prison for a child abduction-murder that she did not commit and spends the rest of the film planning her revenge. However, if you’ve seen either of the above you know that Mr. Park never makes it that easy.

Painstakingly beautiful, this proves Old Boy was no fluke and Chan-wook Park deserves to be bigger than Eli Roth(Hostel) or James Wan (Saw)

1:00 am-3:00 am Magic of the Universe

Shocking Videos:

“Ever wonder what a Sid and Marty Kroft kiddie TV show directed by Alejandro Jodorowsky would look like? This Filipino fantasy film comes awfully close. A vengeful witch abducts a sideshow magician’s family and keeps them imprisoned in her baroque forest castle. Our heroes come to the rescue and encounter countless bizarre monsters and characters along the way. As its title suggests, this film borrows heavily from Masters of the Universe and other Western films, but its nonstop barrage of surrealistic and garish images is truly indescribable. Intended for children, you’ll cry for mommy once you see the protagonists scarf down hot monkey brains straight from the noggin! This film is SO outrageous, a scene where a circus geek disembowels a live chicken with his teeth to the accompaniment of “Jingle Bells” emerges as one of the milder ones!”

Make your reservations now. Seating is limited.

Halloween Horrorshow 05 (reminder)


The wait is over...

Cinema Apocalypse Presents

Grumpy's Halloween Horrorshow 2005


Local Television Program Cinema Apocalypse hosts a special triple fright
film feature at Grumpy's downtown. Join us as we present three "classic"
movies for your holiday enjoyment. Vintage horror trailers will be
screened as well.


Wizard of Gore (1970) H.G. Lewis works his own unique magic on this tale
of a mad magician whose tricks are more than illusions. Montag the
Magnificent commands that you see this surreal drive-in classic!


Gates of Hell (aka City of the Living Dead) (1980) When there is no more
room in hell...the dead shall walk the earth. Lucio Fulci, "The
Grandfather of Italian Gore", pulls out all the stops in this uncut
spaghetti splatter spectacular. Yes, it's got zombies.


Bad Taste (1987) The debut film from the Lord of the Rings director is
an uncensored low budget shocker about an alien race after the galaxy's
newest taste sensation...people. Peter Jackson wrote, directed, and
stars in this outrageous black comedy filled with enough guts and blood
for a dozen horror flicks. And not a damn hobbit in sight.
