Lloyd Kaufman live! Featuring FATHER’S DAY and MR. BRICKS
The legendary Lloyd Kaufman, president and co-founder of Troma Films, is dropping by to screen two of his latest films, FATHER'S DAY and MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL! Kaufman will intro the films and stick around afterward for a Q&A and signing session!
FATHER'S DAY is about the urban legend known as "The Father’s Day Killer," which began some years after the demise of serial rapist/murderer Chris Fuchman. Since the 1970s, the use of contraceptives has tripled in North America alone---and a generation of fathers fell asleep with the covers pulled tight, buttocks clenched. The story has become a fireside cautionary tale on camping trips, often used by fathers to warn their sons of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy. That deep-seated fear of penetration, violation and eventually death waned as the murder and rape of fathers continued to decline all over the world. Unfortunately, those numbers didn’t remain low, and it would seem that the legend is not yet complete… Ahab, a man obsessed with exacting a brutal violent revenge on the man who murdered his dad, joins John, an eager priest, and Twink, a hot-headed street hustler, on an epic quest to find and defeat this mythical monster known as Chris Fuchman, AKA...The Father’s Day Killer!
Troma's latest, MR. BRICKS: A HEAVY METAL MURDER MUSICAL, introduces tattooed muscleman Tim Dax as Mr. Bricks, an ex-con left for dead in an empty New York City warehouse. Rocked by the headaches caused by the bullet lodged in his brain, he pieces together memories – the barrel of a gun… his girl’s scream… and eventually, the face of the dirty cop (Vito Trigo, DARK WINDOWS) who pulled the trigger! All he wants is to find his missing girl Scarlet (Nicola Fiore, MISS CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST, GAME OVER), and vows to kill anyone that gets in his way… but what if Scarlet doesn’t want to be found?
