WYRD WAR has partnered with directors Bev and Ferd Sebastian to present a very special ONE NIGHT ONLY theatrical screening of their cult 1984 slasher rock spectacle ROCKTOBER BLOOD!!!! 

ROCKTOBER BLOOD tells the very bizarre tale of a rising heavy metal star named Billy "Eye" Harper who inexplicably murders his associates in a recording studio and is swiftly put to death for his crimes (sort of). Two years later...BILLY IS BACK from the grave to exact his revenge (sort of)! Along the way there are enough slit throats, excessively sweaty aerobic workouts, random nude hot-tubbing episodes, badly dubbed rock concerts and asphyxiating plumes of fog machine smoke to plunge audiences into the deepest tracts of 80s independent cinema! Featuring the band Sorcery of STUNT ROCK (1979) fame as the fictitious band Head Mistress and a fun fistbanging soundtrack, ROCKTOBER BLOOD is the ultimate way to ring in the Halloween season! 

We are pleased to present a digital presentation of the film directly provided by the Sebastian Family. There are no known 35mm prints in existence (and let's not talk about the Blu Ray...). The quality is dubious, but this somehow only enhances the sleazy charm of Billy Eye and company. Proceeds from this screening will be donated to Bev and Ferd Sebastian's National Greyhound Foundation to benefit animals recently displaced during Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Wyrd War will also be hosting a jack-o-lantern contest AND raffle before the film! Tickets on sake now, Rainbow Eyes.

Wyrd War proudly heralds the return of the pagan fear with the digitally restored official theatrical re-release of George Pavlou's maligned British-Irish monsterpiece RAWHEAD REX (1986). 

Based on an awesome Clive Barker short story of the same name, RAWHEAD REX tells the tale of a grotesque ancient deity’s accidental resurrection and gory rampage through the Irish countryside, while an amateur anthropologist and his hapless family attempt to unravel the meaning of mysterious heathen symbolism and pastoral bloodshed...before it is too late! Witness baptism by urination, sketchy 80s animated lightning effects, children in peril, decapitations, and a rubber monster suit that Clive Barker himself described as a "nine foot tall phallus with teeth." Panned by critics during its brief theatrical US release in 1987 and unceremoniously exiled to murky VHS obscurity, RAWHEAD REX has finally returned to subjugate the masses and assume his rightful throne! Tickets available here or at the Hollywood Theatre box office.

We will also be screening legendary cartoonist Sean Taggart's 3 minute short film FRANKEN FOOT at 9:30pm, immediately before RAWHEAD REX! This hilarious DIY oddity has never before been screened in public. Shot on video in 1994 in New York City and written, directed and starring the man responsible for album covers and flyers for some of the most maligned NYHC pioneers such as Cro Mags, Agnostic Front, Murphy's Law, Carnivore and Whiplash!

One Night Only!
