Repressed Cinema: A Bucket of Blood
Repressed Cinema presents a 16mm print of the 1959 Roger Corman film A
BUCKET OF BLOOD, plus surprise pre-feature beatnik short films from
curator Ian Sundahl’s personal archive.
A BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959):
A tale of a coffeeshop misfit busboy that horrifically rises to stardom
in Roger Corman’s black comedy cult classic. Told against a backdrop of
late ’50s skidrow Los Angeles, beatnik culture is displayed vibrantly
for the ages in what has become Dick Miller’s most memorable performance
as Walter Paisley the aspiring artist. Shot in five days on a minuscule
budget, this film has spawned a stage play and a remake. Here is a
great opportunity to see the original on film!
Underground comics will be for sale in the lobby, as usual.
