For our September Scalarama screening we present a juvenile but affectionate slice of 80’s “mix-tape” trailer trash. 47 mouth watering horror and exploitation movie trailers screened to a cinema full of zombies by bargain-basement ventriloquist Nick Pawlow and his foul-mouthed zombie puppet Happy Goldsplat. The zombie audience eat body parts (and each other) while gruesome twosome Nick and Happy inject puerile bad taste humour into the proceedings as psychopath projectionist Mad Ron drools white foam and splices the trailers with a machete.
This legendary video tape has 1980’s rubber stamped all over it, with shot-on-video segments spliced together with some of the best, most outrageous movie trailers ever made (sourced from 35mm prints). Very bad taste with plenty of gore and an amusing nod to video piracy at the end.
Will the zombies run out of fodder and decide to eat the cinema staff? All will be revealed.
The main feature will be supported by a short programme of 80’s VHS trash.
