STRAIGHT FROM TROMA: THERE’S NOTHING OUT THERE TO SCREEN IN LOS ANGELES, MIDNIGHT ON MAY 26
Greetings from Tromaville! There’s Nothing Out There, the film that invented the meta-horror genre, inspiring Scream and The Cabin in the Woods, will have its first 35mm screening in over 20 years at New Beverley Cinema. Writer/director Rolfe Kanefsky will be present for a Q&A with horror critic Brian Collins.
There’s Nothing Out There is a low-budget independent film which critic Joe Bob Briggs described as having “invented the self-referential horror flick”. Released in 1992, the film told the classic story of a group of teens who go to a cabin in the woods for spring break, only to be terrorized by an alien creature. But one of the kids has seen every horror film, and knows all the warning signs and rules of the genre.
Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is one of the longest-running independent movie studios in United States history, and one of the best-known names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s The Toxic Avenger, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Class of Nuke’em High, Mother’s Day and Tromeo and Juliet, Troma’s seminal films are now being remade as big budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman, and Steven Pink. Among today’s stars whose early work can be found in Troma’s 800+ film library are Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio and Samuel L. Jackson. Visit Troma at www.troma.com, www.lloydkaufman.com, www.twitter.com/lloydkaufman, and www.tromapast.tumblr.com.
