Friday nights at 9:45, join us for the best cult, genre, and other outré film on the Amherst Cinema big screen.
D.O.A. centers around the Sex Pistols’ ill-fated ’78 U.S. tour, which ended with the group infamously disbanding. This molotov cocktail of a film (produced by High Times Magazine) also features incredible, indelible live footage of fellow giants X-Ray Spex, Generation X w/ Billy Idol, Sham 69 and the Dead Boys.
BRAIN DAMAGE is a slimy, grimy, gore-soaked slice of NYC neon that follows a poor schmo addicted to a drug called Aylmer. But Aylmer is unlike any street narcotic - he's a parasitic monster that eats human brains in order to survive, juicing his host with enough hallucinogens to keep the party rolling.
After reinventing the zombie film with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, George Romero made his first color horror film THE CRAZIES, another social commentary cloaked in exploitation trappings about a small Pennsylvania town decimated by the accidental release of a dangerous biochemical weapon in the water supply.
