THE SINFUL DWARF  (1973)

Former kiddie-show host Torben Bille stars as the pint-sized pervert who imprisons drugged teenage sex slaves in the attic of his drunken mother's decrepit rooming house... and that's just the first ten minutes! The delicious Anne Sparrow - in her first and understandably only screen role - co-stars in this towering achievement in graphic depravity, now fully restored from a 35mm print discovered hidden in a janitor's closet at the Danish Film Institute!

STEWARDESSES 3D  (1969)

Fasten your seatbelts for a high-flying sex romp in three dimensions!  Forget the "plot" and enjoy legs and breasts and pool cues and coat hangers and guitars leaping from the screen.  Skip the chicken or beef and enjoy the nightclub scenes, spook show ride, and LSD sequences spilling into your lap.  In the event of a beer landing, you can use your Atrocity coaster as a flotation device!  Bring your own aspirin.

 

 

Shown 2/6/09:

BUCHANAN RIDES ALONE  (1958)

This tongue-in-cheek farce finds Buchanan (Randolph Scott) trapped in a town filled with corruption and greed.  This Boetticher western classic, though cleverly witty, still manages to feature treachery, brutal murders, and, finally, a corpse-strewn town.

RUN, VIRGIN, RUN  (1970)

Thankfully incoherent tale about a town where there's only old geezers for all the beautiful until a lucky young shows up.

Shown 1/9/09:

DECISION AT SUNDOWN  (1957)

The mood is decidedly dark in this Boetticher western that features Randolph Scott revengin' his wife's death.  Scott's obsession, which makes him totally deranged for a time, suggests the performances drawn from James Stewart by Anthony Mann.
