Night of the Lepus + Zardoz

  • May 10, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The evening's theme will be the FURRY 70s.

Movies start at 8 PM, doors open at 7 PM, please arrive between 7 and 8.


8:00 PM - Night of the Lepus

This might actually have been a horror movie if the monsters weren't giant rabbits (which have fur, hence the theme). It's less zany than most of the stuff I show, but it makes up for it because the horrible monster menace is so CUTE. Thank you, 1972.

10:00 PM - Zardoz

In case you didn't get enough 70s fur, I bring you Sean Connery in a red loincloth. This is the man Chuck Norris wishes he was. It's old school science fiction, loosely in the tradition of Star Trek, featuring a post-apocalyptic world and stuff. It's also one of the most infamous bad movies of all time.

WHAT TO BRING

I will have soda. Snacks and other drinks are appreciated but not required. If you know something that goes with Sean Connery in a red loincloth I'm sure it'll be welcome.

    Night of the Lepus is definitely the best-worst movie about giant killer rabbits I've ever seen. Also I thoroughly enjoyed Zardoz both ironically and un-ironically; what a uniquely weird movie.

    Just what bad movies should be--so bad that they're great to mock.

    In the illustrious world of truly dreadful movies, I think it'll be a long time before anyone can presume to top the lumbering, blood-spattered bunny rabbits of Night of the Lepus...and I didn't even make it to the second feature!

    Not going to make it tonight, unfortunately. A conflict has come up, and besides, the one I really wanted to see is Zardoz, and staying for that would mean going home from Brooklyn late at night on the subway....have seen Lepus and it's wonderfully awful. You will love it!

    Schedule overlap. Oversight on my end. But Zardoz is amazingly bad.

    Will definitely be there for Night of the Lepus. Not sure I can stand to sit through Zardoz again. Oof.

    I have a previous engagement so I can't make it. Too bad; I wanted to wear my bunny ears...
