We are about to cross a truly monumental landmark in April as we celebrate 5 years of Fantasmo! Hard to believe we’ve been doing this for half a decade now. It seems like only yesterday we were all sitting down together for that first show to watch Logan’s Run and Buckaroo Banzai. How time flies! Given that this year is sort of an extra special anniversary, we’ve decided to do something extra special to commemorate the occasion. As you know we typically hold our annual Schlock-O-Thon in April, letting you vote on the worst movies we can find. Over the past 4 years you’ve picked some really great, bad stuff, including legendary films such as Gymkata, Night of the Lepus, Solarbabies, The Apple, Shark Attack 3, and Can’t Stop the Music. Of course selection implies that there were a number of potential gems that you voted against. Who knows what treasures may have been overlooked. Well the truth is your Team Fantasmo knows exactly what was overlooked, and this year we’re bringing back all the films that you turned down. Literally we’ll be showing the worst of the worst : ) If you’ve been secretly pining to watch Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, Troll 2, Mac and Me, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie, Roller Boogie, etc., then your long wait is finally over!
All of this is not to say you won’t have a choice in the matter, we’ll still vote on the films as always . . . it’s just that it will be a lesser of two evils scenario. And honestly how much worse could the selections be than “successful” films from previous years such as The Ice Pirates? The only way to know is by coming out on Friday, April 16th at 8:00 p.m. to ring in year #6! See you there!
