Hard as it is to believe Fantasmo is turning 4 years old in April! As has become custom, your Team Fantasmo will be marking this momentous occasion with our annual all-night Schlock-O-Thon, our yearly gift to you our faithful viewers. Yes for one delirious evening we will gather the worst films we can lay our hands on (which as you know is a veritable cornucopia) and let you vote on what we collectively watch. Years past have brought forth such classics as Can’t Stop the Music, Gymkata, Night of the Lepus, Shark Attack 3, Revenge of the Ninja, etc. The list is a who’s who of cinematic masterpieces! The main worry that Rob and I have each year is whether or not we can come up with a list of titles that can top the previous year. Well I feel pretty confident that we’re on track to do just that. There will be some old favorites we’ve tried to convince you to watch from previous years (e.g. Breakin’ 2), but also plenty of worthy newcomers (e.g. Chopping Mall, Howard the Duck) waiting for their shot at the title. We can pretty much guarantee that, as the tagline to the awful Aliens Vs. Predator movie promised, no matter who wins we lose : )
Here are your full Schlock-O-Thon 4 details:
When: Friday, April 3 @ 8:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. (or until we can no longer take it : ) Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and will be locked at 10:00 p.m. No one will be admitted after 10:00 p.m. so don’t be late!
Where: Chesapeake Central Library, 298 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322
Films: ???? Who knows. The only thing to be aware of is that the mix will include films rated PG, PG-13 & R.
So there you have it, your Schlock-O-Thon 4 Anniversary edition of Fantasmo. We hope you’ll come out and celebrate the milestone with your Team Fantasmo, as we ring in our 5th big year!! Did I also mention that there will be tons of cool (and not so cool door prizes), as well as free snacks as always? Like with a show this good you would need any extra incentive!! See you there!!
