Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)
At Friday Night Frights we consider overall audience enjoyment – the thrills and laughter that can only come from a theatrical experience – to be the foremost point of our screening series, and oh baby, have we got a doozy of a screening this week. This Friday (February 17), at midnight @ The Cinefamily in Los Angeles, come shake the schmaltz dust of Valentine’s Day off with us when we show Children of the Corn 3: Urban Harvest, easily the most entertaining installment in the franchise and one of the cheesiest most whacked out horror sequels around. Don’t believe me? Just check out our trailer below.
If the notion of showing a straight-to-video horror movie pumped up on the big screen isn’t already deliciously appealing to you, we’ve also decided to assemble a cast and crew reunion! Cause why not? On hand for a Q&A will be director James D.R. Hickox, cinematographer Gerry Lively, writer Dode Levenson, actors Daniel Cerny (“Eli”), Ron Melendez (“Joshua”), and Jim Metzler (“William”)!
I feel pretty confident that there will never been another screening exactly like this one. Only we’re crazy enough to want to do it in the first place. Join the madness!
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
Truly one of the zaniest and most wildly entertaining installments of any horror franchise EVER! In the grand tradition of later horror sequels (in which the mayhem relocates to some far-flung locale like outer space, da hood or the Big Apple), James D.R. Hickox’s Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest deliciously mutates Stephen King’s original story and brings the murderous culty whelps to the urban jungle of 90′s Chicago; child actor Daniel Cerny delivers an awesomely creepy performance as the pious Eli, who isn’t going to let the obstacles of city life get in the way of his harvesting of a corn demon to reap unholy vengeance on this mild, midwestern Sodom and Gomorrah. On top of that, his adoptive uncle just happens to be caught in the web of an…international corn conspiracy? Kernel for kernel, you can’t beat Urban Harvest‘s audacity or insanity — and, you’re in for a truly unique theatrical experience, as our Friday Night Frights screening marks the straight-to-video COTC3’s first theatrical screening in…possibly ever! Come stalk next to “He who walks behind the rows” for the most terrrifying, corntastic event of this harvest season!
