Grindhouse Film Festival: Night of the Juggler
The Grindhouse Film Festival presents the only known 35mm print of this nail-biting exploitation sleazefest!
OF THE JUGGLER (1980) A tough New York ex-cop (James Brolin)
relentlessly searches for his daughter, after she is kidnapped by a
vicious psychopath who has mistaken her for the daughter of a wealthy
businessman. The ex-cop goes on a citywide rampage; from the filthy porn
palaces of 42nd street, to the violent gang turfs of the Bronx, he
tears New York City in half in his ferocious search. Along the way he
runs afoul of numerous street thugs, pimps, prostitutes and crooked
cops, leading to back to back hair-raising, mean-and-dirty action
scenes. This movie (along with TAXI DRIVER) is notorious for it’s vivid
depiction of New York as a disgusting cesspool wallowing in decrepit
urban decay. This is not to be missed in this once-in-a-lifetime
35mm 70’s exploitation trailers before the movie!
