Danzig’s “Instant Cult Classic” Horror Film Will Be Screening In LA Next Week
Glenn Danzig’s new horror movie Verotika, a film-adaptation of his comic book series, will be screening in Los Angeles, California this Tuesday, June 26 at the Cinelounge at the Montalban. If you want to take part in the action, tickets are still available.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Glenn was in attendance at the premiere and the subsequent Q&A session at Chicago’s Cinepocalypse Film Festival, and he apparently didn’t understand the laughter in the audience, as the movie was meant to be very serious. However, it is already ranking with some of history’s “best-worst,” it’s-so-bad-it’s-good movies, and therefore an instant cult classic, like the highly quotable The Room and Birdemic.
Glenn’s having a hell of a busy year: A few months ago, he announced not only an album of all Elvis covers, but also another film, a vampire spaghetti western — two things that seem hilariously off the wall yet so perfectly Danzig. On June 29, just a few days after the Los Angeles Verotike screening, he’ll also be performing a Misfits show with the original lineup, featuring Rise Against, The Distillers, Anti-Nowhere League, and Cro-Mags as support.
Regarding the reunion, bassist Jerry Only told us, “I’ll put it to you this way. This music is real. This ain’t some fabricated bullshit by some corporation. It was destiny that this music would come along and it was destiny that put us back together. I think the time for talk is over in the music industry. I think it’s time it got kicked in the teeth one more time.”
