Loft Film Fest Continues: "John Dies at the End" Tonight!

Posted By on Sun, Nov 11, 2012 at 3:45 PM

Seeing legendary producer/director Roger Corman at the Loft last night was great. He seemed to be a delightful gentleman who truly loves making movies. I enjoyed Death Race 2000 last night, but for me, the real thrill was seeing Corman's Masque of the Red Death on the big screen this morning. I have fond memories of watching all those Corman adaptations of Edgar Allen Poe stories as a kid in this town, in those dark days before VCRs and cable when all you had was four or five TV stations and those creature feature movies on a Saturday night were the height of cinematic excitement.

The Loft's film fest is continuing tonight through Thursday, Nov. 15. I'm looking forward to John Dies at the End Tonight. (I guess those Corman movies as a kid shaped a lot of my cinema tastes today...) Director Don Coscarelli, known for his work on the Phantasm films and Bubba Ho-Tep, is gonna be there to talk about the film.

There's a whole bunch of other stuff that's worth checking out, even if John Dies at the End isn't down your alley. There's a full day of films tomorrow, including the apocalyptic comedy It's a Disaster with David Cross and Julia Stiles, and then the Doors concert film on Tuesday night. Check out the whole schedule here.
