Movie Night - Texas Jealousy Night

If you're into the horror scene on Twitter at all, you may have heard about a kick-ass double feature shown in a theater in Texas last month, indie powerhouses Dead Hooker in a Trunk and Hobo With a Shotgun were shown in a double feature full of all kinds of badassery. Sadly, I don't live in Texas, and therefore my jealousy of those that do was immeasurable.

Fast forward to today, I'm headed to the Plaza Theater in Atlanta for a screening of one half of the tag team of awesome that Texas got, Hobo With a Shotgun is invading the Atl. I've never been to the Plaza before, but I've read good things about it. I'm hoping I enjoy myself enough to make it something of a regular outing. Don't get much horror on the big screen, and the Plaza apparently makes a habit of showing some of the classics. For instance, the insanity that is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 played earlier this week, and those of you astute enough may pick up on how ironic that is, and will undoubtedly appreciate how I tied it in with this post.

Before I head to Atlanta though, I plan on once again popping in my screener of the other half of the aforementioned tag team, Dead Hooker in a Trunk. I've seen it a few times now, and I'm still not tired of it. With the recent UK and Australian dvd release, the Twisted Twins have hinted that a major announcement was coming soon for those of us on this side of the pond. Personally, I think the announcement will be that a sequel is in the works, and I'm going to be cast as the titular Dead Hooker this time around. Until then, I guess I'll just have to continue to watch my screener of the first one, and you'll just have to continue to be insanely jealous.

HAH! See that Texas? I'm getting a double-feature too, so SUCK IT! Yes, there will be a two hour intermission between the two movies, which I will spend driving, but still! A double-feature! Woo Hoo!

I can't wait! We'll have fun and I think you'll like The Plaza. :)

Btw, did you read that they had to kick a homeless man out who snuck in the first night? Why couldn't that have happened tonight instead? lmao

Like in the greatest degree of Central Texas, the Lakeway kitchen-yard was Indian country until the class was displaced with Anglo settlement in the mean of the 19th century.
