RYAN’S BABE + SCIENCE CRAZED DVD RELEASE PARTY!!!
For those of you in our home town of #YXE, on Monday August 31st, 2015 we’re unleashing our first two DVD releases a whole week before they get released to the general public! So not only will you get to grab them early, but you’ll also get to see them with a rowdy audience on the big screen at the Broadway Theatre!
First up screening at 7:00 PM – celebrating its 15th Anniversary (and shot in Saskatoon!) – is Ray Ramayya’s road trip cult classic RYAN’S BABE (2000)! A good heart and bad luck will get you nothing but trouble. That’s what Ryan discovers – the hard way – when he thought hitting the road would solve all of his problems, instead it was just the beginning. Ryan (Bill LeVasseur, The West Wing) falls into one circumstantial trouble after another. From getting car-jacked at gun-point, being mistaken for a mobster’s son, to a run-in with cheerleaders intent on vigilante justice, Ryan barely escapes one mess before landing in the middle of another. Finally able to go home, Ryan heads back out on the highway. But has his luck really changed, or is there only more trouble in store for our charming hero?
“Full of confusing plot turns, laughable coincidence and manic melodrama, Ryan’s Babe is a film that taps into the same unintentional comedy vein as Tommy Wiseau’s cult hit The Room.” – Paul Corupe, Canuxploitation.com
Then, at 9:15 PM, Videonomicon proudly presents the world theatrical premiere of the Ron Switzer’s Toronto-shot SCIENCE CRAZED (1989), one of the Holy Grails of Canadian cult cinema! Modern technology and bizarre chemical engineering are to blame for the strange goings on at the renowned Shelley Institute, as well as for this movie. After Doctor Wilbur Frank is fired from performing dangerous experiments, the scientist injects one of his imprisoned female subjects with an untested human growth serum. Only hours later, the innocent woman dies violently, giving birth to a full grown human male. Almost human that is. With a frenzied urge to kill, the creature destroys the unfortunate Dr. Wilbur and runs amok in the maze of corridors and rooms of the institute. The local town cop, McCoy, joins forces with Wilbur’s assistants, Terry and Joan, and together the trio fights to survive the savage onslaught of the beast. In the end, they must hunt down and destroy what insanity has created and filmed. One well known critic has suggested that perhaps the world would be a better place if they hunted down and destroyed the original negative of this film. This camp spoof of horror/sci-fi movies will keep you laughing during those moments you aren’t cringing.
