MACABRE MOVIES: “DR. BUTCHER M.D.” IN TORONTO

Posted in Events, Gore, Movies, Zombies with tags , , , , , , on June 24, 2010 by darklordbunnykins

Assuming the G20 doesn’t delay the proceedings, the sick minds of London, ON’s Vagrancy Films should be heading down the 401 tomorrow to screen the warped cult classic Dr. Butcher MD (a.k.a. Zombie Holocaust) at the Toronto Underground Cinema (186 Spadina Avenue). Showtime is 9:30 pm, and of course the vagrants from Vagrancy will be showing a whack of trashy trailers in advance of the main event.

Regarding the main event:

“We are ticked pink (and I mean PINK) to be bringing our bag of cinematic tricks and tomfoolery down the 401 to the brand new TORONTO UNDERGROUND CINEMA. Vagrancy Films is coming VERY prepared packing two big old rusty cans of Butcher bliss and some incredible new 35mm barfy bits to liven up your pre-show experience. We guarantee your evening with this homicidal killer will be either life changing or life scarring !!

Peter Chandler and Dr. Lori Ridgeway come across a gruesome flesh-eating cult in New York. Determined to uncover the origins of this mad corruption, they set out on an expedition to the primitive island of Keto. The two are soon trapped in the wilderness, surrounded by a tribe of cannibals and the insane scientist, Dr. Obrero. The doctor captures Chandler, and prepares him for a series of experiments designed to bring about the end of human mortality. In turn, Lori is captured by the murderous tribe and subjected to their bizarre rituals. In the tradition of the classic film, Zombie, Ian McCulloch reprises his role of a New Yorker faced with primal horror. Italian gore schlock cheese don’t come any finer – THE ULTIMATE DATE MOVIE.”

See you there!
