Legendary filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman, president and co-founder of Troma Films, will be hosting the screening of one of his latest films, Father’s Day! Kaufman will introduce the film and stick around afterward for a Q&A!
Here is the low-down about Father’s Day according to the Drafthouse web site:
FATHER’S DAY is about the urban legend known as “The Father’s Day Killer,” which began some years after the demise of serial rapist/murderer Chris Fuchman. Since the 1970s, the use of contraceptives has tripled in North America alone—and a generation of fathers fell asleep with the covers pulled tight, buttocks clenched. The story has become a fire-side cautionary ritual in camping trips, often used by fathers to warn their sons of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy. That deep seeded fear of penetration, violation and eventually death waned as the murder and rape of fathers continued to decline all over the world. Unfortunately, those numbers didn’t remain low, and it would seem that the legend is not yet complete…
Ahab, a man obsessed with exacting a brutal violent revenge on the man who murdered his dad, joins John, an eager priest, and Twink, a hot-headed street hustler, on an epic quest to find and defeat this mythical monster known as Chris Fuchman, AKA…The Father’s Day Killer!
Showtime is 7:00 PM on Thursday, January 19, 2012 at the Alamo Drafthouse Westlakes.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see this genius of schlock in person and get to watch a bloody, bad-ass movie!
Kaufman will be selling plenty of sweet Troma merch and will also sign anything fans bring to the show!
