Heavy Hitter Midnites: 1990 THE BRONX WARRIORS

Posted by phil blankenship, September 4, 2012 03:59pm | Post a Comment

Heavy Hitter Midnites: I screen my favorite films so other people can see them the way they were meant to be seen - loud & large on the big screen! This week I screen the Italian post-nuke classic 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS!

1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS // Friday, September 7, 2012 at Cinefamily

Welcome to the future: in a catastrophic uprising, where the Bronx is declared a high-risk district and the cops have officially washed their hands of the whole enchilada, the dregs of society inhabiting a colorful post-Escape From New York/post-The Warriors urban wasteland have violently rebelled. Armed with spikes, blades and skull-adorned choppers, “Trash” and his Riders engage in a nonstop war against cannibals and other sentient crud — and the results are killer! Marauding manimals, sci-fi thug weaponry, cutthroat gangs (bikers! hockey players! pimps! tap dancers!), flamethrower-wielding police on horseback, and all-time performances by Fred “The Hammer” Williamson and teenaged Marco di Gregorio (Thunder Warrior aka Italian Rambo) make this vicious “re-imagining” of the John Carpenter and Walter Hill classics a high point in the Enzo G. Castellari (The Inglorious Bastards, Keoma) canon. Delivering everything you want from an early ‘80s post-nuke adventure, this unforgettable descent into the futuristic inferno screens from an insanely rare original 35mm print!
Dir. Enzo Castellari, 1982, 35mm, 86 min.

Enzo G. Castellari, Fred Williamson and Bo Svenson at New Beverly TONIGHT!

Posted by phil blankenship, July 30, 2008 01:21pm | Post a Comment
Tonight only, director Enzo G. Castellari will be appearing at the New Beverly Cinema to introduce his films THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and BATTLE SQUADRON and do a Q&A during the intermission. As an incredible added bonus, THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS stars Fred Williamson and Bo Svenson will be joining Castellari for the introduction and Q&A!
 
Castellari is one of our favorite directors, having created westerns like KEOMA and KILL THEM ALL AND COME BACK ALONE, crime films like STREET LAW and THE BIG RACKET, giallos like COLD EYES OF FEAR, post-apocalypse hits like 1990: THE BRONX WARRIORS, and the hard-to-see killer shark film GREAT WHITE. He's flown in from Italy to join the New Beverly crowd for an amazing night, and it's also his 70th birthday so be sure to wish him well when you see him.
 
DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!
 
The event starts at 7:30pm, and admission for the two features plus a reel of rare Castellari trailers is only $7.00. This is a regular New Beverly Cinema event that we're just helping with, so theater discount cards and student/senior discounts also apply!
 
As an added bonus, there will be some amazing prizes and freebies courtesy of Severin Films, who have just released a beautiful 3-disc DVD special edition of THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. Check them out on our top friends on MySpace, and also at www.severin-films.com.
