NY! Enter “THE BLACK ROOM” on 35mm at Alamo Drafthouse this weekendMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
An early appearance by Linnea Quigley is just one reason to catch THE BLACK ROOM, a bizarre and obscure early-’80s horror film having a rare 35mm screening at the New York-area Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
THE BLACK ROOM will be shown this Sunday, April 26 at 7 p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers, just north of Manhattan (2548 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers, NY), as part of the American Genre Film Archive series, introduced by Chris Poggiali of Temple of Schlock. Directed by Elly Kenner and FRIGHTMARE’s (the Jeffrey Combs one) Norman Thaddeus Vane, the movie is set in a Hollywood mansion owned by a twisted brother and sister who secretly film the kinky trysts a local man has in a fantasy room there—and also drain the blood of the girls he gets it on with! Shot in early 1981 and only released three years later to a handful of theaters, it’s a combo of sex, drug metaphor and shock that is unavailable on disc, so come see the madness on the big screen.
