March Madness: Martian Mai Tais & Monsturd!

March 2010 is going to be yet another eclectic month in Thrillville. First, on Thursday March 11, I'm turning Forbidden Island into Forbidden Planet with THRILLVILLE'S TIKI SCI-FI NITE, featuring futuristic cocktail specials, out of this world prizes, classic sci-fi movies, and live space-surf music by THE TOMORROWMEN! It'll be a first class Space Age shindig, primitive pagan/hipster hedonist style.

Then, the following Thursday, March 18, I'm presenting probably the two sickest movies I've ever shown, and that's a mouthful: a double bill of local underground cult classics MONSTURD , about an escaped con turned rampaging giant piece of shit, and RETARDEAD, about an attack by hordes of mentally and physically challenged flesh-eating zombies, from the demented minds of Bay Area filmmakers Rick Popko, Dan West and artist Ken Dashner, who will appear in person at the screening to explain themselves. Both flicks are as twisted and darkly hilarious as you'd imagine, only more so. Also on the bill: surf band MESHUGGA BEACH PARTY! Why? Well, I needed the silliest band I could think of for this gig, one that was also kickass musically, and they fit the bill like nobody else I know. See you there, creeps, corpses, astronauts & asswipes.

The Living Dead Girlz are featured in Retardead
