Bigfoot shall rise again (again)!

Damned newfangled technology!

We were skunked for our grand debut of "Suburban Sasquatch" on account of a disfunctional DVD. Y'see what happens when you don't use your trusted VHS format?

HMN always has its parachute packed, and showed our back-up feature, "The Witching" from 1993. How could 64 minutes feel so long? This abysmal outing had a dour James Dean wanna-be (and his nerdy friend channelling Jon Lovitz) find a 400 year-old invocation to an ancient witch in the wall of his (70s-era?) tract home. And how did said witch & her minions enter our plane? Through the refrigerator, of course! As our heroes battled nose-picking demons and poorly-constructed puppets, our HMN audience rose to the occasion, and pepper-sprayed the screen with acidic jibes. Later, the Omelettes improv-ed "The Witching's" casting session to hilarious results. Everyone took turns kicking ass.

So you have another chance to be a part of the astonishing wonder that is "Suburban Sasquatch". To make this viewing extra-special, we will have prizes for the most hilarious riffs of the evening. The prizes are provided by the director himself, Dave Wascavage of Troubled Moon Films! He wishes he could attend our screening, but hopes you all enjoy yourself watching the movie (but assumes no responsibility for cleaning up your remains). Here's a lil' peek at what you have to look forward to (this is not the best part, BTW -- the whole movie is best part):

Horrible Movie Night's podcast interview

Hey, folks. The intrepid Alex Roman, who discovers cool and worthwhile people & places in Los Angeles (and hosts a podcast featuring those discoveries), has lowered his standards greatly by devoting his latest show to HMN. Alex wallowed in the muck of bad cinema with us, and uncovered the origins (and future!) of our lil' ol' movie night.

He's a fantastically nice guy, and we thank him very much for asking us to be on his show. Visit his site Living in L.A., or get the podcast from iTunes.

October's Horrible Movie!

Halloween sits at the center of October like the delicious chocolate in a Tootsie Pop. Of course to get there, you have to get through the disgusting and horrifying lollipop part first. This is a lot like Horrible Movie Night.

Before getting to Halloween, allow us to poison your palate with this month's movie selection, "Suburban Sasquatch"! From 2004, this wonderfully atrocious film tells the story of a Bigfoot terrorizing a housing development for encroaching its forest land. On its trail are a reporter (for a newspaper of which he seems to be the only employee), the amazing inept police force, and a mysterious Native American woman who's mighty handy with a bow. You will be agog at the special effects, the spare-no-expense sets, and the massive breasts on the sasquatch. You can't miss this one!

The Complex - 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, Calif 90038

As always, our host is the effervescent Tom Winkler, of fame. And the always amazing Omelettes will take over the stage halfway through the movie to improv some scenes. Please pass it on to any like-minded friends! RSVP now to:

Beer, wine, and snacks, will be available for cheeeeeep. The more you drink, the funnier your comments are.

This month's show is made possible by the good folks at Maxim Media -- check out their legion selection of horror films at their site. And a special thanks to the director, Dave Wascavage of Troubled Moon Films, who has given his blessing to show the film, and hopes we all survive. Visit his site and see his other terrifying films!

Hope to see you at the theater!
