SEXCULA Returns Home October 25, 2013

She’s baacck! As a special pre-Halloween treat, that sexy succubus from Canada’s west coast is set to hit the big screen again, this time in 16mm. That’s right, the big Canadian film discovery of 2013, the adult horror comedy SEXCULA is screening at the Vancity Theatre on October 25, 2013. After digital projections in both Edmonton and Toronto, this marks the first time that audiences will get a chance to experience the film’s rape ape, sex cell stealing and debauched wedding in 16mm!

To celebrate the upcoming West coast screening, here’s three rare behind the scenes photos from the production of the film. Even more will be on display October 25, so make sure you make a date with the Countess Sexcula!





Motion Picture Purgatory: METAL MESSIAH (1978)

The GATE director Tibor Takács’ rarely seen 1978 glam rock opera METAL MESSIAH is one of those obscure Canadian films still desperately seeking an audience, despite its obvious appeal to both film and music fans. That’s why we’re pleased to be co-presenting a special screening of the film this year at Montreal’s Film Pop festival on Friday September 27. In anticipation of the event, Rick Trembles‘ new exclusive MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY strip tackles Takács’ bizarre mix of bombastic sounds, sex and sci-fi. Rick sez:

The erotic thriller was a mainstay on video store shelves for much of the late 1980s and early ’90s, but Canadians only rarley got in on the sleazy action. One of our weirdest contributions to the canon is
WHISPER TO A SCREAM (1989), a tale of strippers, delusional musicians and mysterious phone calls that wallows in its clichés without ever really delivering the salacious content promised. It’s also the latest subject of Rick Trembles‘ new exclusive MOTION PICTURE PURGATORY strip, as he takes a peek at the forgotten VHS mainstay where music and murder meet. Rick sez:
