This October – Halloween hits THE DEUCE with this tasty, tricky treat: Jack Sholder’s loopy 1982 horror hilarity ALONE IN THE DARK…which premiered at the Lyric Theatre on November 19, 1982 (with B-picture TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE!).
Plus: Prizes and surprises, Bronx Brewery Pale Ale at the after-party, and music by DJ BONES! Hosted and presented by THE DEUCE JOCKEYS: Jeff, Andy, and Joe! Also, featuring members of Sic F*cks – Russell, Andy, and Snooky!
A NYC blackout unleashes a cadre of crazies from daffy Donald Pleasence’s funny farm, who are hell-bent on terrorizing their new doc and his none too timorous family! Jack Palance and Martin Landau ham it up like a Christmas dinner as the lead loonies on the loose while the A-Team’s Dwight Schultz scurries to save his family … plus NYC punk-rockers The Sick F*cks (fronted by trendsetters Tish and Snooky of Manic Panic fame) – performing hits like “Chop Up Your Mother”!! At turns tongue-in-cheek slasher send-up and tension filled fright-fest – ALONE is all audacious lunacy… don’t get left IN THE DARK – get your tickets before the bozos get you!!
