Video Vortex: Hallucinations
January 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
THE DEBUT NIGHTMARE FROM UNDERGROUND HORROR HEROES THE POLONIA BROTHERS.
The first shot-on-video (SOV) miracle from Mark and John Polonia (SPLATTER FARM), HALLUCINATIONS is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. When teenage twin brothers (the Polonias) are left home alone with their friend (co-director Todd Michael Smith), they come face-to-face with a house full of phantasms. A kitten is mutilated by a chainsaw. A severed leg appears in a refrigerator. A Freddy Krueger-esque slasher shows up wearing an Adidas snowsuit. But the gross-out gags are slowly overpowered by sexual perversion, including bondage and a giant penis monster that lurks in the shower. Eerie, dream-like, and containing surprisingly mature themes, HALLUCINATIONS is easily one of the most important films in SOV horror history.
Before the feature, we’ll screen BLOOD FLOOD — an early Super 8 short from the Polonia brothers!
