This Week: Creature Features and KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival

Tomorrow night, Thursday March 25 at 7:00 p.m.: Creature Features At The Balboa with John Stanley, horror host of KTVU-TV's popular late-night show (and who very capably succeeded the equally wonderful Bob Wilkins) IN PERSON! Watch the trailer for this extravaganza, which holds forth at one of my favorite theatres in San Francisco.

Saturday night, March 27: the KFJC Psychotronix Film Festival returns, jam-packed with trailers from bad films, martians, robots, campy musical shorts, incredibly strange cartoons, classic television clips, indescribable celluloid oddities and commercials for products like this one:

The amazing 1955 Kelvinator Foodarama Refrigerator-Freezer

When: Saturday March 27, 2010 - from 7:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Where: Room 5015, Foothill College campus

Next week, after recovering from Psychotronix, I will pick myself up, dust myself off and prepare an evening of celluloid oddities and wonderment for Stephen Parr of San Francisco's Oddball Film. I will be guest curator there for two shows at Stephen's excellent film archive on the evening of Saturday April 3.
