To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the VHS tape, Nitehawk Nasties 2017 brings you four features all shot on video. All of these movies will be screened on VHS, as intended.
With the rise of independent video stores in the 1980s and the newfound affordability of video cameras, people from outside of the film industry were finally able to release their work on the very same shelves as the latest Hollywood blockbusters.
For our 2017 Nasties program, we’re concentrating on filmmakers working outside the confines of censorship and good taste, creating a grainy alternate reality on your television where anything can happen and nothing is too extreme.
Joining us in the festivities will be Massacre Video, Wild Eye Releasing, Found Footage Festival, & Horror Boobs each co-presenting & providing exclusive clips for our pre-shows. The series kick off with a party in Lo-Res bar on Friday, June 2 at 8pm.
Stay tuned for upcoming showtimes!
