HOUSEBOAT HORROR (1989)

Directors: Ollie Martin, Kendall Flanagan
Starring:  Alan Dale, Gavin Wood, John Michael Howson, Des "Animal" McKenna

A bunch of talentless bogans (sporting killer mullets and bad perms) drive up to Lake Eildon to film a pop video and get chopped up by a maniac with a machete. This legendary Aussie splatter movie has awful dialogue and sensationally bad acting (especially from former Countdown announcer Gavin Wood) and is one of the funniest things you'll ever see. True to the genre there are gory killings aplenty but the real horror is generated by an endless parade of hideous 80's knitwear and the Brian Mannix "hit" songs on the soundtrack. The few boobs on display will make you feel like you're perving on your mum.

When: Tuesday July 8 2014 @ 8.15pm & Saturday July 12 2014 @ 4.15pm
Where: The Old Woolstore, 1 Macquarie Street Hobart

THE VAMPIRE LOVERS (1970)

Director: Roy Ward Baker
Starring:  Peter Cushing, Ingrid Pitt, Jon Finch, Madeline Smith, Kate O'Mara

A lesbian vampire (the best kind) moves into the home of a stuffy general and starts nibbling the norks of the household's hot honeys. This hilarious attempt by Hammer Studios to get with features all the usual vampire stuff (crucifixes, stakes, garlic, bats on a string) plus lot s and lots of boobs! The professional cast takes things very seriously which, of course, makes it all the more fun.

TROLL 2

Director: Claudio Fragasso
Starring:  Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey, Connie McFarland, Deborah Reed, Robert Ormsby

A family of terrible actors holiday in a small town where they’re attacked by vegetarian goblins that turn people into plants and eat them. This bogus sequel is jam-packed with camp dialogue and terrible make-up effects and the acting has to be seen to be believed - but this more than just a ordinary bad movie. This is a movie that beggars description. Janet and Geoff’s first viewing lasted three hours – the uninterrupted running time is 95 minutes – because they kept rewinding the bits that made no sense and had to pause the DVD at one point because they were laughing so hard they couldn’t breathe. This movie comes VERY highly recommended..

When: Wednesday July 8.15 2014 @ 8.15pm & Thursday July 10 2014 @ 7.30pm

HERCULES  (1983)

Director: Luigi Cozzi (a.k.a. Lewis Coates)
Starring:  Lou Ferrigno, Sybil Danning, Brad Harris, William Berger, Gianni Garko

This 80s version of Hercules as purveyed by Italian shlock master Cozzi is a piece of bad movie heaven. As the titular character (pun intended) former Mr Universe and Incredible Hulk Lou flexes his pectorals and lifts up a lot of heavy stuff while the supporting cast romps about in the campest costumes you’ve ever seen. Lots of heavy duty dubbing and cheesy special effects. Lou battles a range of exotic opponents including a giant locust made of Meccano, a kung fu yeti and stock footage of a bear. Sybil Danning finally has a co-star whose boobs are bigger than hers.

When: Friday July 25 2014 @ 8.00pm
Where: Astor Theatre 1 Chapel Street St Kilda
Tickets available at the door
