Cutting Room for April 20

  • If you want to get my attention, the words “deadly vagina serpent” will do it. Those three words were used in a description of a film featured in Splatterhouse Movie Night, an ongoing series at the P.S. Collective (inside the Pizza Shoppe in Benson) that will be starting on April 25 at 8 p.m. My second favorite part of the email I received on this subject was the note that minors are not allowed, given the “blood and boobage that will ensue at any given moment.” I don’t know about you, but I like the thought of being wherever “blood and boobage” may just suddenly break out. Splatterhouse is free, so hit up PSCollective.com for details to ensure you are where the blood and boobage are.

  • The cult hit Heavy Metal Parking Lot will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a public screening at The Waiting Room Lounge this Friday (April 22) at 7 p.m. as the opening act for the Found Footage Festival, which is a festival of found footage. What? Not everything has some double meaning. For information about tickets (which are 10 bucks) and other features of said festival, check out FoundFootageFest.com and consult 8 Days towards the front of the paper. You never know what you’ll find. Footage. You’ll find footage.

  • I have no clue if Film Streams is thinking global, but they’re sure-as-heck acting local. Insofar as the nonprofit theater is asking local filmmakers (defined as those from Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota) to submit their films for entry into the 2011 Local Filmmakers Showcase to be held in August at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof theater. Hit up FilmStreams.org for more info. They’ll take music videos, feature films, short films … anything really! I probably shouldn’t say “anything,” as I’m pretty sure I just guaranteed the theater is going to be receiving at least one intimate home video from a very confident couple.
