Another Hole In The Head, 2009 - Days 7 and 8

Another Hole In The Head, two weeks of sci-fi, horror and fantasy, runs June 5th through June 18th, with screenings at the Roxie Film Center, 3117 16th Street (at Valencia) and live performances and events at CellSpace (2050 Bryant) and Great Star Theater (630 Jackson). Tickets and additional info at WWW.SFINDIE.COM.

Another Hole In The Head continues Thursday, June 11th, with a selection of encore screenings:

SAMURAI AVENGER THE BLIND WOLF (which is a MUST SEE, as far as I am concerned!), MONSTERS FROM THE ID and the final screening of the Miike epic, CROWS: EPISODE ZERO, along with the accompanying short subjects: SHOWDOWN OF THE GODZ and EAT ME.

Day 8, Friday, June 12th, begins with three encore screenings:

COMING SOON, THE DEAD OUTSIDE, a film I would recommend skipping past, taking a dinner break and returning for the final chance to see SAMURAI AVENGER THE BLIND WOLF! Then stay for the festival premiere of the second "pink film".

NINJA PUSSY CAT (dir. Hiroyuki Kawasaki, Japan, 2003, 60 mins.) Soft core porn, ninja style, actually works in this film! It was a hoot and I LOVED it! Even though the actual motivation or plot mechanization that draws the 16th century Japanese woman into developing a new and, let me just say, gender specific ninja technique, was easy to follow, it became pretty trivial set against the 'trials and tribulations', er, oh, alright, all the sex that our heroine had to endure. But in the case of this film, the sex is actually essential to the plot! Really, it is! It is beautifully photographed and surprisingly well acted. There is even a significant amount of expense and effort put into the production design. It really does play out as a costume drama, featuring a female ninja warrior, who just HAPPENS to use a specific part of her anatomy in combat! HA!! Again, I loved it!

(There is an accompanying short that was unavailable for preview.)
