This month we're celebrating all you low-down, good-fer-nuthin outlaws with a screening of one of our all-time biker flick faves: The lesser-spotted late entry to the genre, but outright classic, "NORTHVILLE CEMETERY MASSACRE" (Dear/ Dyke, 1976). It's been 4 years since we last screened a two-wheeled film, so we've selected the most, gritty, grimy, and authentic one we could find... A street-level morality play starring a real-life Detroit biker gang, where the real bad guys are the officers of the law! Low-budget and gnarly, this 16mm-shot gem packs a wallop whilst retaining a healthy dose of amiable charm. We’re thrilled to be screening this after years of trying to track the screening rights. REV UP!
Plus! Stick around after for the return of the much-missed ‘supporting feature’ slot. A late screening of ultra-obscure, wild biker trash from south of the border!
HFVC DJs will be in the bar before/between playing biker-fuzz and freek-funk records.
