STUNT ROCK and NIGHTMARE at the Olympia Film Festival!

Stunt Rock
Directed by: Brian Trenchard-Smith
Capitol Theater, Friday Nov. 14 at 11:59 PM
1978 / USA / 86 minutes / 35mm

Pyrotechnics, Extreme Rock and Roll, Budding Romance, and Beer…what more does your Friday night need?

In this epic rock and roll saga, Grant Page, famous Aussie stuntman and stunt coordinator on countless favorites including Mad Max III: Beyond Thunderdome, teams up with musical group Sorcery to perform incredible stunts and magic! Impressively fantastical, Sorcery’s stage show includes grand battles between the King of the Wizards and the Prince of Darkness, as well as awe-inspiring stunts with large impaling objects and cars. Stunt Rock in the ultimate eye candy for thrill seekers and rock and roll adventurers!

Beer will be available for purchase with ID in the mezzanine.



Nightmare (A.K.A. Nightmare in a Damaged Brain)
Directed by: Romano Scavolini
All Freakin' Night
Capitol Theater, Saturday Nov. 15 at 11:59 PM
1981 / USA / 97 minutes / 35mm

A cautionary tale for those who don't believe that what you experience as a child shapes you as an adult. As a boy, George Tatum witnessed an event that his young brain couldn't handle. An event so shocking that traumatized little George grew up to be a psychopathic murderer! After being institutionalized for many years, he escapes his psychiatric prison with only one desire… to be reunited with his family. Unfortunately for an unlucky few (and his family), George is still a bit crazy with just a slight compulsion to kill! In the veritable sea of early 80s slasher movies, this cross between Maniac and Halloween stands out as one of the sleaziest, grimmest, and greatest entries of the lot. Climaxes in the greatest double axe slaying ever filmed!

I have seen both films, and I am eagerly awaiting their arrival from Code Red.

But is your print of Stunt Rock the original or the re-release that was put out under the title SORCERY (that I saw it as)?

Washington...so close, yet so very far away.

I guess I'll have to wait for the DVD releases of these titles, unless Code Red is planning some Bay Area, CA showings. Hmm?

Can't wait for the NIGHTMARE dvd---I saw it in 82 and the theater literally FREAKED out over that ending!
