Roger Corman shows that the art world can be a scary place in Nitehawk’s ART SEEN 35mm presentation of A BUCKET A BLOOD.
Life is an obscure hobo bumming a ride on the omnibus of art.
A Bucket of Blood is a hilarious poke at the ridiculousness of the art world as only Roger Corman can deliver. Walter Paisley (“That Guy” Dick Miller) is a frustrated and untalented artist working as a waiter in an artist-filled beatnik cafe. One day, after accidentally stabbing his neighbor’s cat, he discovers a way to become a successful sculptor…cover his kills in clay! Through a series of bumbling mishaps and then intentional murders, dear Walter realizes that he must do anything in his power to keep the admiration and the girl he’s desired for so long. A true art-comedy-horror film, A Bucket of Blood shows that inside every artist is, indeed, a mad man!
