Scenes from the Thrillville 14th Anniversary Tiki Party

Cheers to Thrillville's 14th, aloha style

Still crazy after all these years
Here are some pix from Thrillville's 14th Anniversary Show, my first one in a tiki lounge, as part of my monthly cult movies 'n' cocktails series, Forbidden Thrills at Forbidden Island Tiki Lounge in Alameda. I showed my two favorite horror flicks, I Was a Teenage Werewolf and Dawn of the Dead, plus two short subjects: a  vintage-documentary-style vignette by Christian Bruno, about "Deco-Win," utilizing footage of Monica Tiki Goddess and me spinning the old carnival wheel at the Parkway Theater; and a montage of Thrillville's past theater gigs via a lobby card slide show created by Bob Ekman, to the tune of "Thrillville," my original theme song by The Moon-Rays. On the special menu: Will the Thrill's Pulp Cocktails, deadly drinks inspired by my novels. It was a packed house with some familiar faces but also a lot of new ones. Here's to Thrillville, now a personal pulp fiction factory as well as a B movie mecca, and also to Forbidden Island, which just turned 5. Cheers & aloha.
