One of the funnest repertory houses in NYC, 92Y Tribeca kicks off their "Rip-off Cinema" series tonight with a 16mm screening of the Blaxpoitation EXORCIST riff, ABBY!
ABBY sees the title character seized by a demon of sexuality unwittingly unleashed by her Exorcist father-in-law on a trip to Africa. Warner Bros. sued American International Pictures in 1974 for distributing the picture due to its similarities to William Friedkin's classic and as a result, AIP swiftly pulled it from theaters. ABBY currently doesn't have a decent decent home release, so this seems like a very, very cool opportunity. I've never seen it and have total plans on being there.
For more, you can pick up tickets and see the rest of the series, which is also screening THE BURNING and ALLIGATOR, right here. Additionally, Badass Digest had an excellent look back on ABBY earlier this year.
