Sundays on Fire: Secret Hong Kong 35mm Feature
Run Time: 90 min. Format: 35mm
Warning: Images are not from the movies we’re showing. Trust us, you can’t imagine what we’re showing!
It’s the Hong Kong Chainsaw Massacre! This Sunday on Fire, Subway Cinema and Nitehawk deliver a fast and grotty roughie written on the fly and shot on the cheap, where old school kung fu fights break out every ten minutes to deliver a two-fisted kung fu foodie horror flick with a multiple personality disorder and a case of the screaming mimis made by one of Hong Kong’s most famous directors at the very start of his career.
We’re not going to reveal the title of this gore-gore masterpiece until it appears onscreen, but this movie could comfortably fill out the bottom slot of a 42nd Street grindhouse double bill. Filmed in delirious carnage-vision, and presented on 35mm, the aesthetic model for this movie is the Coney Island sideshow: crude, tacky, in bad taste, and more fun than a barrel of (carnivorous) monkeys.
