Cult Filmmakers You Should Know #11: Takashi Miike

Cult Filmmakers You Should Know: Takashi Miike

By Michael Varrati

Having been involved in the horror genre for quite awhile, I must confess I occasionally feel that I’ve hit a wall when it comes to what can legitimately scare or disturb me. I say this not with any sort of pretentious air, but more so a realistic approach to a blood-soaked industry that has become part of my everyday life. In some ways, it’s just an essential matter of survival. Those of us that craft tales of terror, make movies about them, or otherwise glorify things that go bump in the night tend to face our fears on a daily basis. Because of this, there is a relative thick skin that must be developed to avoid any sort of long term trauma. Movies that friends and family members find to be “shocking and gross” are usually “quirky and fun” to me. It may speak to an offbeat sense of humor, but that’s why the majority of cult fans would rather line-up to see Night of the Creeps than There’s Something About Mary. We just develop a new appreciation for what we’re watching, and it is rarely, if ever, based in any sort of genuine, base-level terror. If anything, it’s because we’re amused and tickled in some dark, but earnest way.

Cult Filmmakers You Should Know #10: Andy Milligan

By Michael Varrati

Admittedly, when filmmaker Andy Milligan was first mentioned to me by Peaches Christ Production’s own Bobby Barber, I had little to no idea who he was talking about.

Being an individual who prides himself on having an extensive knowledge of the world of cult cinema, the notion that there would be someone out there who I was unfamiliar with was both exciting and perturbing. On one hand, I was thrilled to discover something totally new…but on the other, I wondered if Milligan’s lack of presence in the world of fandom indicated that he was someone who didn’t even merit further exploration.

Unrated Collector’s Edition AAE DVD! Holiday Cards! Burlesque!

Hey Ghouls,

=

This upcoming weekend we’re traveling all the way to Minneapolis with Evil co-stars Thomas Dekker, Jade & Nikita Ramsey, Anthony Fitzgerald, and Ashley Fink. This unofficially marks the end of the 2010 Tour De Fierce aka the Tour De Fat-Ass. On the road, my only comfort is food. It’s been an incredible year and I never dreamed we’d be able to take our movie on tour with a big ol’ Midnight Mass style pre-show Spooktacular, but we did, and the whole thing has been a wonderfully wild journey I’ll never forget.

Garbage Hooker CHRISTEENE & PEACHES CHRIST at Bearracuda!

Hey Ghouls,

I think that may have been the most epic October ever! Doing our show in England, a screening in Spain, and then bringing everything home to The Victoria Theatre in San Francisco for our All About Evil run has been beyond exciting for lil’ ole me. We now have our Victoria Theatre PICTURE GALLERY up online courtesy of photographer Brian Benson and you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

Of course the October grand finale was Halloween itself, where I joined Heklina for our annual Trannyshack party. I dressed up as Chucky Christ and was thrilled with how my costume turned out. I’m actually thinking of doing a big Midnight Mass Chucky Tribute in 2011 and I’ve now got the perfect outfit. Wanna see it? Check it out RIGHT HERE.

She Came, She Saw, She Conquered, She Left a Bloody Mess…

WOW! FINALLY, A PICTURE OF THE VOMIT ITSELF!!! This incredible All About Evil EUROPEAN PREMIERE re-cap courtesy of Bren O’Callaghan (aka The Lady Pudding) tells the complete story of our Manchester, England production. Check out the photos, the videos, and links related to our British Adventure at the Abandon Normal Devices festival. This is a full reprint of the article by The Lady Pudding. Enjoy, Ghouls!

Abandon. Normal. Devices. That’s right, roll those words around your mouth as if you were tying a cherry stalk into a knot with your tongue. A double-knot, mind. Intended as a catalyst for production and experimentation, AND is a collaboration between Cornerhouse(Manchester), FACT (Liverpool) and folly (Lancaster), cross-regional in base but international in scope. During October 2010 the emphasis was upon on explorations of identity, behaviour and systems that define who and what we are: from gender, questions relating to ab/normality and picking at the scab of taboo to reveal the raw and puckered flesh glistening beneath.

Victoria Theatre RECAP w/ Pics! Trannyshack Halloween! U.K. RECAP!

Hey Ghouls,

Happy Halloween Queens!!! This is by far my favorite holiday of the year (duh!) and after last week’s incredible All About Evil run at The Victoria Theatre, I could not be more thrilled with the entire season. Check out the full re-cap picture gallery below! The show went well beyond my expectations and watching the movie in the theatre where it was shot was as bizarre and wonderful an experience as I’d hoped it would be. I’m really hoping we can make this an annual tradition in San Francisco and eventually I’ll have co-created enough content to bring All About Evil The Musical all the way to Broadway baby!

Cult Filmmakers You Should Know #9: Ted V. Mikels

Cult Filmmakers You Should Know: Ted V. Mikels

By Michael Varrati

When it comes to pure, unadulterated drive-in era entertainment, I’d venture to say that few do it better than legendary cult icon Ted V. Mikels.

In fact, I’d be willing to state that the only thing that is likely more fun than watching a film by Mikels is the opportunity to be in one.

Luckily, those of us here at PC headquarters don’t have to speculate on such a situation blindly. Realizing many a cult fan’s dream, our very own Peaches Christ had the opportunity to explore the world of Mikels firsthand when she was cast in the director’s most recent cinematic outing, Astro Zombies M3: Cloned.

The film serves as the third installment in a trilogy Mikels began in 1968 with The Astro Zombies, and is poised to introduce the eccentric filmmaker’s unique brand of zany cinema to a whole new generation of eager cult fanatics.

The Ultimate EVIL Event!

Hey Ghouls,

The event I’ve been looking forward to since we first began shooting All About Evil is finally here! Next week, we will mount four nights of the ultimate evil experience in 4-D when we present the San Francisco run at The Victoria Theatre itself! As you probably know, this is the very place the film is set and we are currently prepping, building, and rehearsing for the most ambitious pre-show presentation to date. It will be a fully immersive environmental theatrical experience that truly catapults you into the fourth dimension. Imagine actually entering into the world of the movie. Characters will come off-screen and be greeting you at the door! A spectacular and nightmarish pre-show precedes every screening! Prizes for best dressed “Gore Couture” audience members! Seats wired for electrocution! And soooo much more.

I’ve dreamed of creating an event on the set of the movie itself, and we’re finally bringing this to fruition. Don’t miss this “only in San Francisco” experience and come prepared to get involved, scream out loud, and have a spooktacular time! Tickets are now on sale here.
