Movie Loft Presents “Wild Zero”
Thursday, July 18th, 2019
7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Rock’n’Roll JET-Movie! At Shadowbox Studio in July, Movie Loft goes completely over the top, and beyond, with a screening of the 1999 zombie-apocalypse alien punk-rock biker splatter romance ‘Wild Zero’! The action follows rocker and Guitar Wolf super fan Ace (Masashi Endo) as he stands up to a crooked show promoter and is given a whistle to summon the band when needed. And boy does he ever, as band and fan must soon battle alien-induced blue zombies, along with facing other misadventures and characters, all while Ace pursues and protects his love interest Tobio (Kwancharu Shitichai).
Completely wild and totally insane, this Japanese Rock’n’Roll Zombie Horror Classic from director Tetsuro Takeuchi is pure madness, with a throbbing musical heart powered by Guitar Wolf, Bass Wolf and Drum Wolf! This is one that can only be experienced, as any descriptions fall vastly short. There’s even a drinking game associated with the movie, with the simple rule that you drink when:
Anyone combs their hair
A head explodes
Fire shoots out of anything
Anyone says ROCK AND ROLL
“Rock ‘n Roll is NOT over, baby! Rock ‘n Roll NEVER DIES!”, and we’ll prove it by spinning slabs of the trashiest most-rockin’ 90s garage punk we can get our clammy mitts on! Records and hot dogs starting at 7, movie rolling just after 8, with more tunes to follow.
Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what’s on-hand!
