We were invited on to the Really Awful Movies podcast, based across the Atlantic, in Toronto!
This month sees the release of the latest Marvel blockbuster – The Avengers: Age of Ultron – not to mention a new series on Netflix – Daredevil. Today, Marvel is a Hollywood behemoth – a studio that has created its own expansive universe on both the big and small screen. However, this wasn’t always the case…
When Kongs of King Street opened, with its collection of retro arcade machines, we knew we would have to show a computer game movie adaptation there. The only question was which one? However, the more we thought about it, the more obvious the answer was: STREET FIGHTER!
With the help of Sheffield’s The Five and Dime Picture Show, we once again unleashed The Room upon the people of Bristol.
We don’t normally show trailers for films that we’re not showing… but this is no ordinary film.
Here’s hoping Cinema Epoch let us screen this sequel once it’s finished!
And yes, that was The Room’s Tommy Wiseau…
On Thursday 22 January, Bristol Bad Film Club screened Gymkata to a sold out crowd at the Southbank Club in Southville.
Mullets, Star Wars satellite sites, rampant anti-American sentiment… we look at why Gymkata is the most 80s film ever.
2014 was a busy year – not only did we somehow manage to fit 13 screenings into 12 months, but we also did our first outdoor screening, which over 500 of you turned up to!
Christmas is usually a time of giving, caring, and sharing, but if you’re the maker of exploitation movies, it’s also a time for brutal murders by killers in Santa Claus suits, deadly snowmen or, in the case of our screening this month, genetically-engineered Nazi elves with a taste for virgins.
