This May, make a Mother’s Day date with The Deuce for MIDNIGHT… aka BACKWOODS MASSACRE! Romero collaborator John A. Russo’s 1982 regional PA low-budgeter bloodbath/road-movie of rednecks, racism, bad dads, bully cops, and a bloodthirsty brood of Satanists! Lonesome autumnal roads and loathsome small-town small-mindedness… lite-FM soft-rock anthems and… madness!!
With Romero’s ‘Martin’ – Jon Amplas – as one of the maniac “cops”! Re-live the moment when MIDNIGHT struck the screen on 42nd Street at the Liberty Theatre with The Deuce!! “You’re on your own…”
