Sex and violence. Our Nitehawk Nasty this month is one of our favorites, the murderous “is it real or is it fake”¬†Bloodsucking Freaks! The theater of the absurd film comes from a long tradition of adult theater established by the Grand Guignol in France where elaborately gruesome scenes unfolded onstage that got audiences close to death but at a safe distance. Don’t worry, what you see is only an illusion…or is it?
