October 12th
DR. CALIGARI by Rinse Dream
– (1989)
This isn’t to be confused with the original silent horror film, ‘The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.’ This is a sequel that is either very unorthodox or right on the money depending on how you look at it. The granddaughter of the original Dr. Caligari runs an asylum filled with sexual deviants drooling all over each other in a constant low roll of dry ice. Highly recommended for those with similar conditions. (80 minutes)

October 19th
TEENAGE TUPELO by John Michael McCarthy
– (1995)
D’Lana Tunnell just can’t get a break! Her mom sucks, her job sucks, and her cool rock n’ roll boyfriend Johnny Tu-Note wants to split when finds out she’s pregnant. Tupelo is a real pit! Soundtracked by the 90′s Memphis surf rockers Impala, this is like a John Waters film deep fried. (90 minutes) Film Clip

October 26th
DESPERATE LIVING by John Waters
– (1977)
John Waters’ first real drama. Mink Stole stars as a hysterical woman in a hysterical world. Don’t we all? (90 minutes) Film Trailer
