Xtreme Friday Night Film Series Lives!

26 Aug

Well it’s official. Red River Theatre‘s Xtreme Friday Night Film series has been a great success. Facilities manager Barry Steelman announced before the screening of 13 Assassins that the series will run throughout the month of September. I’d like to think my poster played some small part in that but hey, with a linup of Hobo With a Shotgun,Rubber,13 Assassins and Stakeland how could it NOT be a success? Another great thing about this is I get to do another poster for the next 5 titles.! (fist pump)  Here’s what’s in store for the next month:

The Troll Hunter:


Four Lions:

Dead Alive:

Dario Argento’s Susperia is one of my favorite films of all time, a masterpiece of the horror genre as well as the brilliant Dead Alive, an early Peter Jackson favorite.Throw in the dark comedy of Four Lions and the thrilling monster movie aspect of Troll Hunter and you have an excellent lineup of friday night films. Join me tomorrow for the screening of Stakeland at Red River Theatres and keep an eye out for the new poster for the XFNFS part deux!

Here it is in all it’s glory. The poster for Red River Theatres Friday Night Film Series. When you given the task of drawing something you really love and have a real connection with there’s a certain amount of pressure. I love the B-movies, and these are no ordinary b-movies. These are products of serious craftsmen/women. I deeply admire Takashi Miike and Rutger Hauer. If anything I hope this inspires you to travel to Red River Theatres and check out this awesome lineup of movies. This was a total blast, but I need a drink now. Cheers!

Red River Theatres presents…..

My love affair with the movies has been a long one. Some of my greatest memories are in a darkened theater in a cramped seat eating carefully smuggled contraband candy. It all started with the now defunct Hampton Cinemas 6 (RIP 1980-2009) and ventured all over New Engalnd. During my days in Boston I haunted the Brattle and the Coolidge Corner theater like Casper the Ghost. I even got the chance to high five Chow Yun-fat at the MFA after a screening of Better Tomorrow. I’m no movie snob but I hold cinema as an artform that transcends and entertains. I am also a huge B-Movie fan and feel that many of these genre films (as I call them) are some of the greatest entries in the history of cinema. I’ve had some of my memorable experiences with these types of movies.They also are where many of our greatest filmmakers got their start.

When I was just recently asked by Concord’s own Red River Theatres to do a poster for their upcoming Friday Night Film Series I was blown away. Red River is the 10 time award awinning independent non-profit theater showing the best of current independent and foreign films, classics, documentaries and cult favorites. This  is one of the places a cinema fan must support, because you just don’t see this type of theater that offers this high quality of experience just anywhere. They are few and far between especially outside of Boston. This series includes an absolutely wonderful linup of some of the best genre films to come out in the past year:

It all starts with super gonzo Hobo with a Shotgun on August 5th, and I’ll be appearing in person for the screening of Stakeland . More details to come later!
