It's "Curtains" for New York City!
So here's a cause for celebration ... or at least a reason to pull out your favorite "hag" mask (no, not that kind of hag...) and join a few fellow loonies for a good time.
A good friend of mine and his slasher nutter cronies have somehow gotten their mitts on a pristine 35-millimeter print of the oft-forgotten Canadian slasher classic Curtains, and is screening it this coming Friday (Friday the 13th, lest we forget) at the Two Boots Pioneer Theater in NYC.
If you've read my gushing review of the film, you'll know that I will of course be there (although I'm coming from an even gayer movie event - if that's even possible - so I'll be arriving somewhere around the scene on the mountain pass). And more importantly, a little bird tells me that so will Lesleh Donaldson, a star of the film (her ice skating scene is the stuff of slasher legend) as well as Funeral Home, Happy Birthday to Me, Deadly Eyes, and others.
Lesleh's a complete hoot and you'll love her even more once you meet her and hear all her stories about being a Canadian scream queen. And did I mention that I'd be there?
To buy your tickets NOW, head on over to the Pioneer's site and click away. See you Friday, squids!
Oh, and if I haven't been convincing enough, let this white-hot trailer for the movie get you in the mood.
