The Grindhouse Film Festival screens 35mm prints from the exploitation heyday of the 1970′s and early 80′s. Genres covered include horror, crime, blaxploitation, sexploitation, hicksploitation, revenge films, biker films and more. Vintage 35mm trailers play before each film. In addition to being a cinematic study, this series is also a sociological study of the time period these movies came out of. Some of the movies are offensive, some are sexist, some are excessively violent. It’s the responsibility of the series to show these films, even if some of them are extremely controversial. Dan Halsted, the Hollywood’s Head Programmer, is the organizer and founder of the Grindhouse Film Festival. He is passionate about the caliber of the films in this series and believes they are an important part of cinema history that deserve to be seen on the big screen in their original format, 35mm film.

On Tuesday May 28th at 7:30pm, the Grindhouse Film Festival presents a 35mm print of Lady Terminator!
Lady Terminator (1988) The infamous Indonesian action/horror mind blower. A beautiful woman is possessed by an ancient mystical queen out for vengeance, turning her into an unstoppable killing machine! She takes off on a rampage across Indonesia, gunning down anyone who gets in her way, and blowing apart half of the country. She also sports a mean leather jacket…except when she’s naked…which is a lot. But for those foolish enough to try to put their hands on her, she also castrates men with an eel that lives in her vagina. Bullet-riddled mayhem, disco shootouts, mind-boggling dialogue, a mullet-headed cop who drives a tank, and so much more. All in full-throttle 80′s excess! This movie truly has to be seen to be believed.
