TRASH HUMPERS
2009, Drag City, 78 min, Dir: Harmony Korine

A gang of elderly people wander the nighttime back alleys of Nashville, hidden behind grotesque latex masks, causing general chaos until they find the perfect discarded junk to gyrate against. Korine’s attempt to make a project as fast as possible resulted in a damaged, non-aesthetic style shot and edited entirely on VHS. This non-narrative, utterly uncategorizable movie has elements of zombie horror, black comedy, cultural satire and home video. A love letter to a bizarre subculture Korine himself created for the film, TRASH HUMPERS plays like a thrift-store digger’s ultimate found-footage score … if they were hunting through the greatest Goodwill in Hell.

HAPPY DEATH DAY
2017, Universal, 96 min, USA, Dir: Christopher Landon

SCREAM meets GROUNDHOG DAY in this darkly comedic slasher hit from Blumhouse Productions. University student Theresa "Tree" Gelbman (Jessica Rothe, in a breakout performance) caps off her birthday by getting murdered – only to wake up and re-experience the day’s events. As the process repeats itself, Tree gathers clues to stop her killer and escape the endless loop. “A snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine.” - Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times.
