Rue Morgue Magazine‘s monthly movie night happens again this evening, with the Charles Kaufman camp classic Mother’s Day (1980) screening at 9:30 at The Bloor Cinema. Mother’s Day, the tale of two backwoods brothers who torment a trio of city girls at the behest of their momma, was reviled in its time for its exploitative nudity and violence, and we can’t blame the protestors as the sleaze is pretty thick. Feel free to bring your own bar of soap.

TORONTO 1-YR ANNIVERSARY OF REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA SHADOW CAST THIS FRIDAY! DIRECTOR PRESENT!

"Graverobber, Graverobber..."

Perhaps not unexpectedly, the cult of director Darren Lynn Bousman’s oddball Goth rock opera Repo! The Genetic Opera — the one that co-starred Paris Hilton, Skinny Puppy’s Ogre and Buff’y‘s Anthony Stewart Head — continues to thrive, with multiple “shadow casts” (who, Rocky Horror Picture-style, act out the on-screen action live and in costume) popping up across North America in the wake of its release back in the fall of ’08. Toronto’s company, the “Repo! Shadow Cats,” are celebrating their one-year anniversary this Friday, Jan. 22, at The Bloor Theatre with a special Repo burlesque show “where all your favourite Repo characters will be stripping down” apparently. Largo, too?

Bousman will be there and The Dark Lord Bunnykins is trying to wrangle the man into an on-camera interview to discuss the Repo! phenomenon yet again. We’ll also ask about his upcoming re-imagining of the Troma “classic” Mother’s Day, his recent wedding, and his thoughts on that other organ repossession film coming out this spring, Repo Men.

So come out to the Bloor to “celebrate one year of organ reposessions, blood, boobs and dirty humour.”

More details are available on the Shadow Cats’ Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/event.php?eid=226738229135&index=1.

See you at the opera!
