Phil & Mark are presenting an awesome exploitation double feature - classic vs contemporary! Genre bending 'Reform School Girls' (1986) mixes sexploitation and prisonsploitation, led by Punk Metal Matriarch Wendy O Williams (rip).
Next, 'Hobo With A Shotgun', (2011) takes the Grindhouse exploitation genre into the 21st century with Rutger Hauer as a vengeful hobo who retaliates vigilante style on a corrupt town run by depraved gangsters. He makes Bronson look like a pussy...
They'll even have a themed drink special and snacks.The buttery popcorn is a bit like a buttery White Russian - and you can get a large cola (with whisky) or sprite (with vodka) to go with your free movie snacks.
OH - and here's your chance to win a free drink: come up with a new name for either movie or post a recap on twitter using 140 characters or less. Your hosts will choose the best responses!
Welcome to the NYC Grindhouse - the only group on Meetup.com that deals specifically with the Exploitation Film Genre. We'll be watching old classics such as Russ Meyers 'Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!' and Jack Hill's 'Coffy', the film that launched sexy Pam Grier into the spotlight, as well as new Grindies like Tarantino's 'Death Proof' and my recent favorite, 'MACHETE'!
When summer comes, we'll take a few weekend road-trips to check out the few remaining DRIVE-INs in NY - the closest one is less than 2 hours drive from Midtown, Madhattan! As well, I'll be hosting 'Drive-In Double Features' on my rooftop in gritty Hell's Kitchen. If you have any questions, please email me at Grindmaster@NYCGrindhouse.com, or call/text me @ (347) 523-3937.
We'll also be checking out special Midnight Screenings @ the famous Sunshine theatre on East Houston Street, as well as other exploitation screenings in and around Badhattan.
FINALLY, as the original 'Grindhouses' were named after the now defunct burlesque theaters located on 42nd Street in New York City, where 'bump n' grind' dancing and striptease were featured, we'll visit some of the remaining burlesque and vaudeville venues in NYC for a bit of naughtiness. . .
