The most exciting and anticipated film premiere in SF this year is very nearly upon us! [Now that it's happened, read a wrap up of all that took place right here!
] Legendary San Francisco drag queen Peaches Christ'
s alter ego Joshua Grannell
has written, directed and is starring in the new film All About Evil,
which is having its grand debut as a part of the San Francisco International Film Festival
at the fabulous Castro Theater
this Saturday! The event will be marked with a star studded preshow
, a la Peaches Christ'
s historic an
d completely over the top Midnight Masses.
The film stars Natasha Lyonne, Mink Stole, Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Thomas Dekker, and some seriously scary twins.
This is a blacker than black black comedy -- full of thrills and chills as well as major laughs. I've actually had the pleasure of seeing the film in its earlier state and can guarantee we have a crowd-pleasing hit on our hands! Joshua's particular brand of genius comes from his geniunely deep obsession with horror films coupled with an understanding of camp and comedy that only someone with years of drag experience can bring! And I love that the main character Deborah (Natasha Lyonne) goes from shy librarian to small movie theater owner to unstoppable, out for blood serial killer, all in the name of quality films! Wait'll you see how it all unfolds!
