The line was out the door an hour before showtime. It went around the corner of the block before they opened the theater to us gore-hungry band of degenerate nocturnal horror fans. One of the women that works there noted "i hope you all showered. 12 hours is a loooong time." Some guy in line said "i hope we all showered too!"
Harry says he basically had very little to do with the movie selection. Ok that's not entirely true, he had a little bit to do with it but not much. Most of the programming credit went to Lars, a tall skinny dude with a huge combined thicket of dark hair and beard. He introduces the first film: Devil Times Five. "Werewolves, vampires... they don't come close to evil children. Nothing is as creepy as evil children. Also, the lead kid in the is Leif Garrett. While you're watching, think about what Leif Garrett's 'thing' is. I mean there's one kid that's a soldier and one likes fire and stuff like that, each evil child seems to have a 'thing' but then there's Leif Garrett. He's just bad vibes or something."
The movie also stars the dude who played Boss Hog and Rosario from WIll & Grace. it's pretty horrible, but laughably so. Seeing it in a theater of fully charged horror fans makes it a hilarious experience. The movie does have a completely gratuitous catfight (with boob slippage) and pretty nice pirahna death (how they manage to get a pirahna death into a movie set in a snowed-in ski cabin? i'll leave that as an exercise for the reader).
It wont be the last time tonight that I'm surprised by moments and glimpses of really classic movie moments in a piece of crap film.
