"Attack of the B-Movies!"

Photobucket


Just because most college students left town for the summer doesn't mean the year-round Greensboroites have to wait until the fall to have fun at the movies.

That's why the folks who programmed the Mixed Tape Film Series and Midnight Madness have teamed up with NC film archivist Matt Pennachi to present "Attack of the B-Movies!"

This special series of midnight movies is four weeks of white-knuckled, unrelenting B-Movie greatness in 35 mm!

Audiences will laugh, scream, and cheer as vintage reels from cinema's yesteryear unspool tales of cyborgs, zombies, bad-ass valley girls, and monstrous beings from hell. And if that wasn't great enough, we're also playing no less than 15 minutes of zany retro trailers with each film!

Tickets are $4 each, with beer, pizza, soda, and popcorn on sale for $1.

NOTE: Because so many people have asked for it, the Carousel will now offer beer via a cash bar until 2 a.m. Now audiences can drink until Blue Laws force them to sober up.

Below are dates, titles, and film descriptions:

Midnight Friday, July 10 - Death Race 2000
Best described as "Gladiator" meets "The French Connection," David Carradine (R.I.P.) races Sylvester Stallone for a chance to destroy a corrupt U.S. President in this Roger Corman exploitation classic.

Midnight Friday, July 17 - Zombie
Zombies! Released stateside in 1980, this is Lucio Fulci's classic zombie movie. Banned in Germany, Norway, and the UK, this film is one of the hallmarks of the genre.

Midnight Friday, July 24 - Night of the Comet
Two valley girls survive Earth's annihilation and must battle hordes of the the walking undead and evil government scientists.

Midnight Friday, July 31 - Demons
A brand-new movie theater transforms the audience into murderous demons as the remaining human guests battle for their lives! Directed by Lamberto Bava and produced by horror legend Dario Argento, this is one of the greatest unsung horror films ever made.

Oh, and here are some trailers:
Death Race 2000


Zombie


Night of the Comet


Demons

An awesome lineup, although I do think using the European title for ZOMBIE 2 may confuse some people, who don't know that DAWN OF THE DEAD was called ZOMBIE over there, but have heard of film WE call ZOMBIE, with its infamous eyeball scene and gut munching and Shark Vs. Zombie fights.

Oops, sorry, I'm an idiot. You're not calling it that, that's just the Euro title on the YouTube trailer.

I am a huge B Movie (we call em good bad movies) fan and have just discovered the site and movie series. Not bad. I will definitely keep up though midnight is REALLY LATE for an old fart like myself.

My Favs: Army of Darkness, Night of The Living Dead, ahhhh who cares. Cant wait.

Any hopes for Rocky Horror? Been awhile for me.
