Repressed Cinema: Andy Milligan Horror Spectacular

Repressed Cinema presents a 35mm print of GURU THE MAD MONK, plus a surprise Andy Milligan short, with Milligan’s biographer in attendance!

GURU THE MAD MONK (1970) Death his religion, blood his lust!  The king of creativity on a shoestring budget director Andy Milligan strikes again in this ultra low budget horror gem. Milligan not only wrote, directed, edited, and photographed but also made the costumes in this period piece set in the middle ages. Do not miss the parked Moped in the background of a shot! Neil Flanagan gives a memorable performance as the evil Father Guru; see him sustain a conversation with himself due to his “split personality”. Milligan made films to appeal to grindhouse audiences of the day with plenty of gore scenes, but he also made films with his gut which is one of the reasons he has such a devout cult following today.

PLUS: Jimmy McDonough, Andy Milligan’s biographer, will be introducing the movie and will be bringing along a SURPRISE very rare Andy Milligan directed short from his private stash that will be played before the feature. Do not miss your chance to see this bizarre “mystery” pre-show short…
