It’s only February, guys, but it seems like we’re already in playoff mode here at Popcorn Reef. We’re back on February 28th at The Adams Avenue Theater in Normal Heights for what will undoubtedly be our biggest Popcorn Reef Sleepover yet.
It’s widely considered one of the most outrageous, shocking, and shit-rocking films of all time, with a final act that takes even the most seasoned genre fans to their body-horror limits. It also needs to be acknowledged more often as a classic of the folk horror subgenre for any Southern Californian who has ever felt that something’s just not quite right.
And the guy who made the movie? He’s a genre film legend, known for producing movie magic monuments like RE-ANIMATOR and FROM BEYOND, co-writing films like HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS, and directing gruesome love stories like BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR and RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD 3.
Join us on February 28th as we welcome director Brian Yuzna to Popcorn Reef to celebrate and discuss his opus of the bizarre, SOCIETY, which has a firm spot on our personal Mount Rushmore of 80s horror flicks.
Our love for this movie is not easy to quantify with words. The supreme not-giving-a-fuck-ness of its general attitude, combined with its wicked sense of humor, palpable sense of dread, and its scathing commentary on the ugly undercurrent of Southern California consciousness, makes for a singular vision that needs to be celebrated, time and time again.
Join us after the film as we break down everything you’ve ever wanted to know about SOCIETY with Mr. Yuzna himself. Who knows, you might even get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to ask him that question you’ve always wanted an answer to.
Come dressed to impress in your favorite high society threads, or come comfortable in your favorite sleepover attire. Or don’t dress up at all. Just make sure you’re there 😎
On February 28th, we’ll all sing together for the Shunt Fest of the year. Let’s go.
