CINEMA: Punk Rock Horror Picture Show

Verotika Official Poster
 
Punk rock legend, Glenn Danzig, who is currently in the midst of his reunion tour with The Misfits is making a solo stop at our very own Philadelphia Film Center, Friday, December the 13th, the night before The Misfits play the Wells Fargo Center. Danzig will be presenting an exclusive, one-night-only screening of his directorial debut, Verotika, a feature-length horror anthology of tales culled from his comic book series. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Danzig and producer James Cullen Bressack. Verotika premiered at this year’s Cinepocalypse Film Fest and reportedly achieved instant infamy, drawing comparisons to Tommy Wiseau’s The Room, which has me morosely curious to see just what Danzig’s very singular vision had conjured up.The film was originally planned to hit cinemas as a Fathom event back in October, but instead Danzig has opted instead for these smaller more personal shows, where he can personally present his film and engage with his fans after a viewing. – DAN TABOR
