    B-MOVIE BINGO: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN


    FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN (1989)

    Showing Tuesday 10/4/2016 at The Hollywood Theatre

    In the spirit of Halloween, we’re showing our first Jason movie! It’s rather difficult to find horror movies that align with our list of action and cop movie tropes, and this one works only because it features New York City in the 80s, which featured a lot of guns and violence.

    So, after miraculously coming back from dead yet again, Jason tags along on a sexy boat ride to New York City. After killing nearly everyone onboard, a few survivors escape into the bowels of New York, where Jason attempts to hunt them down so he can kill them.

    From the back of the VHS box:

    The Big Apple’s in big trouble, as indestructible psycho-fiend Jason Voorhees hits the road to New York City–and paints the town “red”. After a shocking return from beyond the grave, the diabolical Jason ships out aboard a teen-filled “love boat” bound for New York, which is soon transformed into the ultimate voyage of the damned. Then one of his terrified victims escapes into the nightmarish maze of Manhattan’s subways and sewers, only to confront Jason one final time.

    Rated R. Directed by Rob Hedden.

    B-MOVIE BINGO: UNDEFEATABLE

    UNDEFEATABLE (1993)
    Showing Wednesday 11/5/2014 at The Hollywood Theatre

    **Special Wednesday Night Showing!***

    Our favorite street fighting sister is back! In UNDEFEATABLE, Cynthia Rothrock stars as Kristi Jones, a diner waitress who partakes in Mafia-run street fights to pay for her sister’s college education. That sounds like a plot we can relate to! Hunky cop Nick DiMarco (John Miller) catches on, and attempts to break up the illegal fights. Meanwhile, a psychotic underground fighter known only as “Stingray” (Don Niam) allows the brutality of his fights to cross over into his marriage. Distraught, his wife’s psychiatrist advises she leave him, which sends Stingray on a murderous rampage. He spray paints red stripes in his hair and goes after any woman who resembles his wife, Anna–which means no brunette in a floral print dress is safe!

    When Stingray crosses Kristi Jones’ brunette-haired, floral print-wearing, college-attending sister, all bets are off, and it’s up to Jones and Officer DiMarco to put an end to Stingray’s… stinging. Directed by Godfrey Ho.

    Loud ‘N Clear – Infomercial of the Week

    Here’s our Infomercial of the Week: “Loud ‘N Clear”, which appears to be some kind of cheap hearing aid that looks like a Bluetooth headset. The best part is from about 1:00-1:30, where it shows how the Loud ‘N Clear device can help you “discreetly listen in” to conversations across the room (or street), and how it shows it can help hunters in the forest.  As the snuffling sounds of a nearby buck are amplified (sounds like its eating Cheerios), there is a subtle moment when the hunter sort of winks, and we hear an angelic *ding* sound effect.  Genius!
