The Laser Blast Film Society returns with a rare 35mm presentation of DEATH WISH auteur MICHAEL WINNER’s deranged teen-horror obscurity SCREAM FOR HELP, sardonically scribed by TOM HOLLAND (FRIGHT NIGHT) and bombastically scored by JOHN PAUL JONES (LED ZEPPLIN)!
THIS IS A CAN’T MISS LASER BLAST EVENT!
Pre-Show: 7:30 PM
Feature: 8:00 PM
“Ten times trashier then DEATH WISH 3 and THE SENTINEL” – Obscure Cinema 101
“Think Nancy Drew meets The Stepfather at The Breakfast Club, and you pretty much have the premise of Scream for Help nailed down … It’s one of the most unusual films of the 80s and a laugh riot.” – Thrill Mef
Where most Winner films go straight from offensive to forgotten, this teenager-in-peril movie went from forgotten to such deep obscurity that it’s often missing even from Winner filmographies. Snoopy teen Christie finds out that cheating on her mother is the least sinister thing her stepfather is up to. He’s planning to dispose of Mom and doesn’t mind including Christie in the deal. She tells the police. They all laughed, and you will too. Expect gory exits for almost-famous indifferent actors and a haphazard sense of plot logic and camera placement. (Time Out)
THE LASER BLAST FILM SOCIETY is made possible in part by the funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
