Filmmaker Andy Copp’s latest film festival is an all night endurance test of truly bad cinema called “Pay To Get Out Alive”.
This first-time event is unlike anything experienced in Dayton, so I’ll let Andy explain the concept:
“Here is how it works. $15 bucks to get in at 9:30 pm and it goes for 12 hours – all night long. The most mind punishing cinematic trash I could lay hands on. After the first two hours you start to earn money back towards getting back out the door. Each hour you stay after those first two you get $1 back. So if you stay the whole duration the whole event only costs you $5!!!
But can you stand it is the question? The films include:
Black Devil Doll From Hell (1986) – Considered by most to be the WORST movie ever made. Worse than TROLL 2, worse than any Ed Wood movie. You do not know bad until you have seen this.
THE GEEK (1971) You ever wonder if Bigfoot has sex? Well this movie answers that question as well as shows lots of scenic footage of the Oregon countryside.
ROAD OF DEATH (1971) – Insane biker trash starring BOTH of Thora Birtch’s adult film star parents! Directed by the immensely untalented master behind the anti-classic THE GUY FROM HARLEM!
RUBBER’S LOVER (1996) A genuinely good film in the Japanese cyberpunk tradition full of exploding bodies, arterial spray, excessive medical experimentation, unhealthy sexual desires, and the entire cast screaming for 90 minutes.
APHRODISIAC: THE SEXUAL SECRETS OF MARIJUANA (1970) – Truly inspired and brain damaged “educational” film film about how pot increases your sexual abilities and can save the world.
There will also be lots of other films, surprise shorts, trailers and other bits and pieces to fill out the festival.
There will be contests and prizes and a most outrageous costume event.”
