An old fashioned double feature!! Well..really it's like a movie and a half.
Metuchen's very own Tim Sullivan returns to The Forum for the New Jersey premiere of his brand new musical/horror/comedy "Chillerama: I Was a Teenage Werebear" along eith a special screening of the cult classic "Detroit Rock City"! (hit the link for tickets)
I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR: A funny, subversive spoof of the Eisenhower/Kennedy-era beach movies, I Was A Teenage Werebear follows a day in the life of closeted new kid Ricky O'Reilly who falls for Malibu High's mysterious bad boy Talon. The 30 minute film features five rock ‘n roll musical numbers in a stylistic mash-up of genre icons Roger Corman and John Waters that spins the frothy boy/girl/beach format into a humorously bloody, albeit well-intentioned, call for acceptance and tolerance. I Was A Teenage Wearbear is one of four horror-comedy films that comprise the upcoming anthology, Chillerama, an homage to the drive-in movies of the 50’s and 60’s featuring vignettes from some of contemporary horror’s biggest filmmakers; Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City), Adam Green (Hatchet), Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) and Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs). An autumn theatrical release of the anthology is anticipated. Written & Directed by Tim Sullivan.
DETROIT ROCK CITY is a 1999 cult film about four teenagers in a Kiss cover band who try to see their idols in Detroit in 1978. Comparable to Rock 'n' Roll High School and I Wanna Hold Your Hand, Detroit Rock City tells a coming of age story through a filter of 1970's music and culture in the United States. Starring KISS. Written by Carl Dupre. Directed by Adam Rifkin. Produced by Tim Sullivan
I will be hosting, so expect plenty of semi-drunken fun...and I won't ask Tim what happened to him as a child, as we went over that last time. Come join us and spread the word!
