Dates with showtimes for SEX / DEATH: An Erotic Thriller 16mm Movie Marathon
  • Sat, Apr 20

Run Time: 720 min. Format: 16mm

35mm can be beautiful, but 16mm is *personal*.  This six-feature marathon of Hollywood erotic thrillers is packed full of cheerfully promiscuous femme fatales, goofball fall guys and an avalanche of illicit oodling and canoodling.  Made at the apex of the genre (’84-’94), these horny noir-ish contraptions come straight from the archives of Secret Sixteen: L.A.’s siqqest collection of this wondrous film format.

Join Secret Sixteen founder Mike Williamson, Josh Miller (Friday Night Frights) and Bret Berg (Museum of Home Video) for a 12-hour blast of Gothic duplicity, white-collar criminality and the pleasure / danger principle. Titles aren’t revealed until they unspool onscreen — you’ll thrill to amorous jazz, smoky backlit groping, peeping toms, trigger-happy cops, glass block walls, sex with the boss’s wife, housewives living double lives, stoopid husband moves, cuckoo clergy, over-confident Lolitas and delusions of a happy life with a white picket fence.

 

Please note that this screening is not eligible for Brain Dead Studios membership discounts, and tickets must be purchased separately.
