I don't care who you are or what you like, if you are a red-blooded, breathIng humanoid, you must Vow to sEe this movie!

This month Tough Guy Cinema is championing the toughest of the tough without the use of in-theater pyrotechnics. We're doing a pure celebration of fisticuffs and machine guns with this in-your-face celebration of pain, one-liners and the longest fist fight as a result of not wanting to wear sunglasses you have ever seen.

So come and witness John Carpenter genius in full force, backed by a rocking '80s synth soundtrack and FREE sunglasses and bubblegum for all! "I'm giving you a choice: either put on these glasses or start eatin' that trash can." (Greg MacLennan)
