A very merry spooky October superfriends! The Fifth Reel is back and madder than a heart attack. We’re excited to kick off our Fall/Winter lineup on Oct 20 with a BRUCE CAMPBELL double feature!
ARMY OF DARKNESS (1992) + MAN WITH THE SCREAMING BRAIN (2005)
“A discount-store employee ("Name's Ash. Housewares.") is time-warped to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised savior who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil. Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome, and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash's 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness”. – IMDB
Shortly after AOD we’ll be playing Bruce Campbell’s directorial debut MAN WITH THE SCREAMING BRAIN: “Man with the Screaming Brain is a story of greed, betrayal and revenge in a small Bulgarian town. William Cole, wealthy industrialist, winds up with part of his brain replaced by that of a Russian cab driver Yegor. The two couldn't be more different, but they share one thing - both were killed by the same woman. Brought back to life by a mad scientist, William and Yegor form an unlikely partnership to track down their common nemesis.” – IMDB
Preshow for the evening will feature the spooky punk stylings of THE DETRACTIONS
