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):
