KUNG-FU NECKTIE, PHILADELPHIA PA
Troma Entertainment will be hosting a double feature screening at Philadelphia punk-rock club Kung Fu Necktie. The event will showcase a new film by an emerging director alongside a classic movie from the Tromarchives. The two films offered this Monday will be Feartown, U.S.A., directed by Brandon Bassham and Lloyd Kaufman’s Terror Firmer.
Feartown, U.S.A. (2014), a comedic camp-slasher movie that is a recent addition to the Troma catalogue, tells a story of four boys looking to lose their virginity, a girl haunted by a dark secret, a lonely teenager, and an escaped mental patient who all meet at a party in the woods. The plot unfolds in true party-horror tradition, where horny adolescent urges for fun and sex seal a terrible fate for the characters. Feartown, U.S.A. has been reviewed byHorrornews.net as, “puerile, deeply offensive and extremely funny”. The film’s emerging director Brandon Bassham is a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade and has recently directed a second feature length film also distributed by Troma Entertainment, The Slashening.
