The Abomination showing for $1

 

Showtime is at 9:30- meet me in the Tap Room bar off the lobby before the show for some drinks and conversation before the movie starts.

THE ABOMINATION

              DirectorBret McCormick

Year 1986

StarringScott Davis, Blue Thompson, Rex Morton

 

Prepare to puke! Shot on Super 8mm in Poolville, Texas and crammed with neon barf, disembowelments, and ambitious latex monsters, THE ABOMINATION is a benchmark in D.I.Y. trash-gore insanity. Cody lives with his mom in a wood-paneled shack. Mom devotes her life to shady evangelist Brother Fogg. Mom hacks up a tumor. The tumor infects Cody. He coughs one up, too. Soon, the tumors multiply. They infect the entire house and take form as The Abomination -- a bloody vagina monster that hides in a washing machine and tears people in half! With no ties to rational thought, THE ABOMINATION falls somewhere between the calculated gross-out of STREET TRASH and the hallucinogenic dream-world of H.G. Lewis's THE WIZARD OF GORE. This movie heaves with mismatched post-dubbing, constant jump cuts, and tape-manipulated synthesizers until it EXPLODES with the stench of wet cow intestines, burning Bibles, and pissed jeans. It's psychedelic anxiety, 1980s style. (Joseph A. Ziemba)

      Yep. The horse was the TRUE Abomination over seeing the fates of all the characters. That was brilliant.

    Bah. I just found out we DO play tonight. At least it's at Barricuda's (yes, they spell it that way), so I can walk there. Sorry that I'll miss you all tonight.

    I didn't RSVP because my pool league usually plays on Wednesdays, but we might have a bye tonight. (I'm still trying to confirm.) If it turns out I'm free, I'll RSVP and see you there!

      When I bought them there were 0 other tickets bought, so I just randomly picked the end of a row.

    I'll buy my tickets when I get there that night so if you want to sit by me come into the tap room first to find out where we'll be sitting. I have red hair and there will be an EVIL DEAD thermos on my table.
