From the very first time I stepped foot into the New Beverly Cinema, I have been asking them to show Shocker, my guiltiest of guilty pleasures (don't forget - I consider Armageddon to be legitimately good). Until now, my requests have not been granted, much to my increasing sadness. But the power of the film's 20th Anniversary was too much for Phil Blankenship of Amoeba Music to ignore, and so I am proud to announce that on October 3rd, at 11:59 PM, SHOCKER will indeed be showing at the Bev as part of Phil's ongoing and increasingly awesome New Beverly Midnights series, with a brand new print to boot! Even better: the screening will be the first of what I hope will be many to be co-presented by Horror Movie A Day!!!
So expect many plugs from now til then; in the meantime, check below for this awesome poster that I slapped together with my meager Photoshop skills!
I promise you... THIS IS GOING TO BE AWESOME.
