About the event

As part of our Anti-Halloween Show, COSTUME/CONSUME, we are shwcasing a pair of double feature screenings--the first on October 29, 9:00 PM featuring two camped-out surreal horror films consisting of recycled Halloween detritus:

FRAGMENTSTEIN:

2022 Robert Mizaki

When lightening strikes the creature, Dr. Frankenstein’s dream turns into his nightmare, but his daughter, Tanya has a better idea. She will stop the creature with her own creation.

Dissous Frankenstein (Fragmentstein) is a cyber-delic, sound engagement of spectrum-ruckus cinema. From the moment it begins, the reverse titles remind you it's the movie itself that's stitched together. Its parts are electrical paintings twisting with sounds that perseverates its story compulsively. Dug up from the graveyard of the public domain, the body of the 1971 Italian horror film, Lady Frankenstein, has been restitched together and given electrical jolts of circuit bending sounds to enhance Alessandro Alessandroni original score. Starring Joseph Cotton.

Screening with: SLOW ARRIVAL by Ginny Benson

JACK THE RIPPER:

1995, FLLOYD, Blacklips

This is the first full-length feature film by New York director FLLOYD. Shot entirely in Black and White, it incorporates super 8, 16mm film, and digital video to produce a unique effect. The budget was extremely low, yet each scene is packed with demented style, original music, period makeup and costumes, unusual locations, and a parade of incredible character actors. The project was originally presented by the vaunted Blacklips Performance Cult, a “para-theatrical” troupe that performed a different late-night play each week at New York’s historic Pyramid Club. JACK THE RIPPER features the original Blacklips stars in a moody mix of surreal horror, poisonous comedy, and exaggerated beauty that captures the squalor and alcoholism of a bygone London.

Viewers have compared its atmosphere to that of German Expressionism and early Warhol.
