RARE ARCHIVAL 16MM SCREENING for only three bucks! Sponsored by VULCAN VIDEO!!

ABBY will screen on 16mm in theater two at the Ritz. This show will sell out, so get your tickets early!

Moving into a new home is never easy. Especially when your spouse is a groin-kicking, goo-spewing, sex-addicted spawn of the devil. William "BLACULA" Marshall accidentally unleashes the demonic spirit of Ishu, The God Of Sexuality, while on an archeological dig in Africa. Naturally, the spirit possesses his daughter-in-law, Abby, while she and her husband are settling into their new house. And that's when things get crazy. Knife violence! Monsters in the shower! Demon sex in sleazy nightclubs that climaxes with smoke explosions! Filmed in Louisville, Kentucky by regional trash-horror maniac William Girdler (DAY OF THE ANIMALS, THREE ON A MEATHOOK), ABBY is the supernatural blaxploitation epic that they didn't want you to see. Literally. Warner Brothers was so enraged by the movie's "similarities" to THE EXORCIST, that they confiscated every print on earth in 1975, pretty much burying the movie forever. Luckily, we've got the ONLY 16MM THEATRICAL PRINT IN EXISTENCE for one hot night of supreme funk jams, insane make-up effects, and lines like: "Where did you pick up that rigamarole bullshit?!" (Joseph A. Ziemba)
