"You do shit and then you die."

I almost gnawed my tongue off trying to keep this one a secret. Thankfully, I can now announce that Mr. Daniel "Samson" Roebuck will be our very special guest for our 30th anniversary screening of River's Edge (1986) on March 10 at Hollywood Theatre! Yep, he of Dudes (1987), Phantasm V (2016), Bubba Ho-Tep (2002), The Devil's Rejects (2005), The Man in the High Castle (2015-2017), Lost (2005-2010) and about a million other flicks and TV shows. And Cavegirl (1985). Immediately following the screening, Mr. Roebuck will blow our minds with a slideshow Q&A featuring rare behind the scenes photos from his personal contact sheets from the 1987 shoot. Get your tickets NOW!

Now that I have made amends with my liver, I can make my first announcement of 2017! Wyrd War and Hollywood Theatre’s Greg Hamilton join forces to deliver this very special one-night-only screening of Tim Hunter’s harrowing wasted youth masterpiece River’s Edge (1986). When one of their friends inexplicably murders his girlfriend and leaves her naked body on a riverbank, a gang of morally stunted high school wastoids grapples with their conscience and fraying solidarity. Unfolding like an S.E. Hinton novel on methamphetamine and thrash metal, River’s Edge is a subverted coming-of-age story directed by the screenwriter of Over the Edge (1979), and starring Daniel Roebuck, Dennis Hopper, Crispin Glover, Keanu Reeves, Ione Skye and Joshua John Miller, that portrays the ambiguous emotional lives of dead end youth with unflinching honesty, startling depth and the best soundtrack of the decade. "Out of love, out of mind...out of fooooood, out of time!"
