Alright, it’s the return of the Church Of The Up All Night film series, hosted by Max Dropout & myself. Max picked a couple of classics for next Sunday night (9pm) at Beerland, and while we cannot offer free Brooklyn Lager this time (thanks to whoever blew the whistle), the entertainment on offer is gonna be intoxicating enough (NO, JUST KIDDING. Please buy many drinks)
“Vice Squad” (1982, dir Gary Sherman). Season Hubley plays a mom-turned-hooker enlisted by the LA vice squad to ensnare a murderous pimp named Ramrod (Wings Hauser). LOTS OF BAD SHIT HAPPENS NEXT.
This is an all-time fave of Max and myself…and anyone else that’s seen it. If that’s not enough the film’s LOVE THEME (“Neon Slime”) is sung by Hauser in what might be the finest vocal performance of the 1980’s.
“Maniac Cop” (1988, dir. William Lustig). The godlike Bruce Campbell tries to stop a psychotic, NYPD killing machine. The film’s poster reads, “You have the right to remain silent…forever.”
