Horror Film Series Revoltingxreviews Returns for One Night Only with Summer-Themed Double Feature


La Botánica is hosting horror film series Revoltingxreviews for a special pop-up double feature of two cult classics: Peter Jackson's entry into the zombie oeuvre Dead Alive and shocking summer camp slasher Sleepaway Camp.

An early directorial entry by Jackson, Dead Alive (originally released as Braindead in New Zealand) is a low-budget slapstick zombie comedy with stupefying levels of blood and gore that'll impress even the most jaded  horror fans. While the effects in Sleepaway Camp aren't nearly as impressive, the film is delightfully shocking in its own right for reasons that can't be explained without spoiling the whole thing.

To ramp up the fun, there'll be trivia, prizes, drink specials and a very special  performance by hometown horror queen Miss Taint, "the most glamorous creature of the night you've ever seen."

If you haven't figured it out by now, the flix on deck are gratuitously violent and feature a healthy dose of nudity, so if that's not your cuppa tea, then give La Botánica a wide berth on Friday.

Free, 8 p.m. Friday, June 14, La Botánica, 2911 N. St. Mary's St., (210) 706- 0702, vivalabotanica.com
