IT'S SORTA LIKE CANNES, BUT WITH MORE BOOBS
You know what would be a great name for a blaxploitation vampire film? Hemoglobin Jones. Unfortunately, that movie has yet to be made. (Roger Corman, call me!) Plenty more high-concept atrocities brimming with boobs and blood have been made, and you can view a choice selection at the Boobs and Blood International Film Festival, a decadent three-day celebration of gore and areola. The festivities kick off Friday with mistresses of alt-erotica the Suicide Girls, who'll be on hand for an uncensored screening of their nude-models-at-a-remote-cabin horror movie, Suicide Girls Must Die, presented in "3D-O-Vision." Saturday is "Hurrah! It's Boobs! Day," which is a much better idea for a national holiday than Crab Meat Newburg Day, which occurs on Sept. 25. On-screen: Mega Piranha (courtesy Syfy, the cable-TV channel soon to deliver Sharktopus), Pervert: The Movie (with star Mary Carey in the flesh), and a double feature of Japanese "pink" films, low-budget soft-core flicks taken to out-of-their-mind levels as only the Japanese can. Sunday wraps up the mayhem with Vampyres (1973 Playboy Playmate Anulka Dziubinska in person), the S&M Hunter (his superpower? extreme bondage!), and Fred Olen Ray's Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. Awards, too, including Lifetime Achievement and Psychotronic Humanitarian of the Year. New Beverly Cinema, 7165 Beverly Blvd.; Fri.-Sun., Sept. 24-26; $10 per screening, $50 three-day pass; tickets at brownpapertickets.com/event/127917; schedule at boobsandblood.com.
Sept. 24-26, 2010
