July 10, 2015

horrorfest_2015_07_lobby_card_a_04

UPDATE: A previous version of this page listed this event as taking place at Brit Pack’s new location on Pell St., but the show will actually be happening on the 3rd floor of 153 Lafayette St. in Manhattan.

Hoff’s Horrorfest is a monthly show at Brit Pack (3rd floor, 153 Lafayette St., Manhattan) featuring stand-up comedy followed by a horror movie screening and, in this case, a director Q&A! It’s free and BYOB. This month’s installment will be at 10:30pm, Friday, July 31st.

This month’s movie: Uncle Sam (1996)

This month’s guest: William Lustig, director of Uncle Sam

The dog days of summer are upon us, and after the vacation-by-the-lake hijinks of Friday the 13th Part 3 I’m now moving on to some seasonal Independence Day patriotism with Uncle Sam, a supernatural slasher flick about a deceased Gulf War vet who returns from the grave to terrorize some insufficiently America-loving townsfolk! It’s an energetic shocker laced with ahead-of-its-time social satire and boasts a great cast that includes Isaac Hayes, Robert Forster, Timothy Bottoms and P.J. Soles.

And as if that weren’t enough, William Lustig–director of Uncle Sam as well as of the Maniac Cop films, Maniac, Vigilante, and many others–will be joining us after the movie for a Q&A! He was super fun when I had him on for my Maniac Cop 2 screening and I’m thrilled to have him back. Friday, July 31st! See you there!

Hoff’s Horrorfest Presents: MANIAC COP 2! UPDATE: Q&A HAPPENING REMOTELY

April 6, 2015

Hoff's Horrorfest Presents: Maniac Cop 2!

UPDATE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, the William Lustig director Q&A will be happening remotely rather than in person.

Hoff’s Horrorfest is a monthly show at Brit Pack (3rd floor, 153 Lafayette, Manhattan) featuring stand-up comedy followed by a horror movie screening and, in this case, a director Q&A! It’s free and BYOB. This month’s installment will be at 9:30pm, Friday, April 24th. Seating is limited; RSVP to hoffmatthews@gmail.com.

This month’s movie: Maniac Cop 2 (1990)

This month’s guest: William Lustig, director of Maniac Cop 2

Oh boy, guys. This is exciting.

Our film for this month is Maniac Cop 2, the energetic shoot-’em-up about an NYPD detective turned renegade zombie. It’s been called “The Greatest ’80s Horror-Action Movie Ever Made” and features some gotta-see-it-to-believe-it action set pieces, hilarious black humor and great performances from the likes of Robert Davi, Claudia Christian, Bruce Campbell, Michael Lerner and the late, great Robert Z’Dar. (This screening was scheduled prior to Mr. Z’Dar’s passing last month, but we’re happy to be showcasing some of his work.)

And as if that weren’t enough, we’ll be joined for a Q&A by William Lustig, director of the Maniac Cop films as well as of Maniac, Vigilante, Uncle Sam and many others. He’s a horror cinema icon and it’ll be a damn thrill to have him on the show.

You have the right to remain speechless in the face of how much fun this is gonna be. Friday, April 24th! See you there!

–Hoff
