If you enjoy vampires and Will Ferrell, Horror in the Hammer might have just the thing for you.
That's how Aaron Allen describes the world premiere of Bloodsucka Jones — an indie film being shown at this Friday's Fright Night Theatre event at the Staircase Café Theatre.
"Like the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, the comedy in Bloodsucka Jones skews toward the absurd, the unpredictable, and the improvised," Allen said.
"I haven't laughed so much at an indie comedy in a long time," he said. "We're really proud to be hosting the first public screening of Bloodsucka Jones."
Fright Night Theatre is Hamilton's longest-running cult film screening program, Allen says. It's been going since 2009 and the event's organizers aim to entertain film audiences with a monthly showcase of "shocking, scary, schlocky and scintillating independent and mainstream horror films," he added.
Aaron says Fright Night Theatre isn't just a scary night at the movies with a horror film, but a celebration of fringe filmmaking and the macabre.
Bloodsucka Jones is showing at the Staircase Cafe Theatre at 27 Dundurn St. N on Friday night, Feb. 15.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and the feature presentation starts at 8 p.m. For more information, visit the Horror in the Hammer website.
