SuperTrash Film Festival, Bagdad Theater, Portland, Oregon, 97214

After a post-holiday drop off/(hangover?), it appears that life (and events) are coming back to P-Town. One of these is the SuperTrash Film Festival at Bagdad Theater. Below is a YouTube preview of the festival. If you can't view it (sometimes firefox seems to adblock them out), you can go here and watch it.

You can also be Myspace friends with the festival by going here. The rest of the details (from Jason at Floating World Comics) are below. Sorry about the formating.

THE MOVIES:
RE-ANIMATOR (1985, Dir. Stuart Gordon, 95 mins) …a masterpiece of
hideous gore and faultless drama.
MAD LOVE (1935, Dir. Karl Freund, 68 mins) …Peter Lorre shines as a
lust-bent doctor capable of anything!
ROAD HOUSE (1989, Dir. Rowdy Herrington, 114 mins) …the most macho-hot
movie ever put out!
PSYCH OUT (1968, Dir. Richard Rush, 101 mins) …a sleazy expose of San
Francisco 'free love' with Jack Nicholson as a stoner rocker on the trail
of an acid casualty played by Bruce Dern-streaming-Jesus.
ROBOCOP 2 (1990, Dir. Irvin Kershner, 117 mins) …incredibly undervalued
sequel, stuffed with maniacal design and misanthropic ideology, Frank
Miller's first film job.
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA (1986, Dir. John Carpenter, 99 mins) …no dis
to Raging Bull, Scarface, or Blade Runner, but for select hordes, BTILC is
the greatest 80s rush.
BUFFALO 66 (1998, Dir. Vincent Gallo, 110 mins) …a lowlife fantasy chock
with feline romance, family crap, and noirish cruising…love or hate it,
it's cool.
RETURN OF THE DRAGON (1972, Dir. Bruce Lee, 100 mns) …Bruce Lee versus
Chuck Norris!!!
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968, Dir. George A. Romero, 96 mins) …the one
that makes you believe the dead will eat you.

SUPERTRASH is wild, perverse, beautiful, grotesque…subversively
combining powers of Art and Trash into SUPERTRASH.
