Coming to Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema this Sunday, July 10,
Destroy All VHS is a one of a kind event celebrating the greatest home video
format ever invented…VHS. Greatest??? Come on, that’s gotta be Betamax, hands
down! Find out more about the happening—and which FRIDAY THE 13TH film they’ll
be showing—after the break.
The event starts at 10 p.m. at the Nitehawk Cinema (136
Metropolitan Ave., Williamsburg, Brooklyn 11211) with tons of trailers and home
movies, then a VCR demonstration by the VHS magazine, Lunchmeat, followed by a sexy/scary clip show by the Horror
Boobs. And to top it off, there’s a showing of FRIDAY THE
13TH: THE ORPHAN (no connection to the FRIDAY THE 13TH
franchise)—writer/director John Ballard’s rare 1979 film about a traumatized
boy who slowly sinks into madness and resorts to violent acts in order to
battle his terrifying memories. FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE ORPHAN has never been
available on DVD or Blu-ray, and will be screened straight from the VCR so you
can revel in the fuzz, blips, grain, scratches and screeches. And if you got a
problem with the way it looks, you can fix the tracking yourself!
The Nitehawk Cinema is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn,
just a few blocks off the Bedford Avenue L train stop (which means it’s really
close to Manhattan). They have a full bar and restaurant, as well as a VHS
Museum. Both Lunchmeat and Horror Boobs will have merchandise tables with
magazines, T-shirts, buttons and, most importantly, tapes! Check out the
Australian trailer for FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE ORPHAN and Destroy All VHS ad below.
