New York

FEAST OF FLESH

by

What better way to attain post-Thanksgiving catharsis than with a grindhouse double feature in which large numbers of characters are outrageously dispensed with on the cherished day of feasting? This is precisely the event Videology — working in collaboration with the NY Horror Movie Group and NYC Grindhouse — has in store, and the two movies scheduled to screen could hardly be more appropriate. Home Sweet Home (1981), directed by Nettie Peña (who edited the 1978 porn flick Dracula Sucks), follows a PCP-addled escaped mental patient (played by Jake Steinfeld, of Body by Jake fame) as he mows down a group of people at a secluded ranch. The second selection, ThanksKilling, boasts an even more absurd premise: a homicidal turkey preying on a lineup of college students. You know if you’re the target audience for these movies — and if you are, you’ll have a blast.
