Holiday Thrills at Forbidden Island

Santa swings by the tiki lounge

Christmas Island

"Santa Claus Conquers Forbidden Island"

Christmas cocktail: "Milk and Cookies"
It was a festive evening of Forbidden Thrills at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge last night as I presented two kooky, krazy but kool Kris Kringle/St. Nick flix, SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964) and the Mexican curio SANTA CLAUS (1959), plus cocktail specials, prizes (crap from my house), free popcorn, and a visit from Santa himself. This pared down, laid back tiki bar incarnation of Thrillville has been a hit so far, and I plan on continuing the monthly series well into 2011 and beyond. It's just the right mix of cult movies, cocktails and, most significantly, convenience.

For more on Psycho Santa Cinema, please see my new Examiner indie movie column.

Happy Holidays from the Thrills, cheers.
