Fans of 80’s cult cinema are in love with the mad genius that is Jackie Kong, and has even been praised for her berserk 1984 “bad cop” comedy Night Patrol, with some calling it the funniest movie ever made.
Your mileage may vary.
But Night Patrol is just one of a handful of subversive, borderline surreal and totally transgressive genre films that Kong made in the 1980s, the others being 1983’s The Being and the crowning jewel of her resume, 1987’s uproarious and disgusting H.G. Lewis quote Blood Diner.
So strong is the fan base for Blood Diner that Kong – who is notoriously elusive – has decided to re-emerge with the mother of all weird/cool Blood Diner events.
It’s insane. I mean it’s REALLY insane. It’s AMAZINGLY insane. Have I said how insane this really is???
On Saturday, October 1st, at Austin’s legendary Spiderhouse Ballroom, Lady Jackie Kong herself will be hosting a screening of Blood Diner on a mother of all monster sized big screen, followed by a director Q&A and an all-stops-pulled-out after party with select cast and crew!
Pundits and party-goers will have the chance to see the flesh-eating Goddess Sheeter herself, imprisoned in a secure laser cage, meet the actors who survived the blood-spattered Club Dread, enjoy the all- you-can-eat “Lumerian Buffet” (and you can try to bring back the dead while you glut yourself) and dance all night to Blood Diner’s soundtrack including Dino Lee, the King of White Trash.
Kong and her wild and weird entourage will be giving away free raffle tickets to the best dressed ’80s undead patrons, the likes of which will get a chance to win a copy of Blood Diner on DVD and get their picture posted on the official Blood Diner Facebook page.
The event will kick of a National Blood Diner: Finding Sheeter Screening Tour. Dates and more details about the tour and campaign will be announced in the coming weeks.
Here is the 1987 trailer for Blood Diner, taken from a VHS transfer. There are some tracking flaws, but it’s enough for you to get the idea!
With everything “80’s” becoming chic at the present time, will we be seeing a resurgence of 80’s horror films, and possibly even a new line of 80’s influenced horror films? Will YOU be going to the Blood Diner event in Texas?
