Overview

Celebrate Arthouse Theater Day at the SNF Parkway Theatre with a special presentation of John Landis' 1973 classic SCHLOCK! ABOUT THE FILM: A love stranger than King Kong! From writer/director John Landis (ANIMAL HOUSE, THE BLUES BROTHERS, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) comes a love story transcending the boundaries of nature and good taste. Shot over twelve days on a micro-budget, SCHLOCK launched the careers of both Landis and legendary SFX artist Rick Baker (MEN IN BLACK, VIDEODROME). An uproarious pastiche of monster movies, packed to the gills with irreverent humor and biting satire, SCHLOCK is the outrageous missing link between the creature features of yesteryear and its creators’ subsequent celebrated careers. Carnage! Terror! Banana skins! The mighty prehistoric ape Schlocktropus has emerged from hiding to embark on a full-scale rampage across a quiet SoCal suburb. The police are baffled. The army is powerless. The body count is rising...but when Schlock encounters a kindly blind woman (Eliza Garrett, ANIMAL HOUSE) who sees beyond his grotesque visage, the homicidal simian is presented with a chance at redemption... “Grounded in his abiding love of silly gags, cheap monkey suits, monster movies and inside jokes, SCHLOCK contains many of the gags and themes found in such later John Landis classics as KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, albeit in embryonic form.” — Nathan Rabin, AV Club
