Decisions, decided: I'm gonna be watchin' me some Road House come Sunday.

Thank you, LJ Hive Mind. I like your style.

It's showing as part of the McMenamin's Super Trash Film Festival this weekend. How trashy are we talking? The lineup includes, in no particular order:

* Big Trouble in Little China. I'm hoping the line "Jack Burton is a man of courage" gets a laugh.
* Night of the Living Dead (at midnight, naturally).
* Re-Animator. Greatest tagline in movie advertising history: "Dr. Herbert West had a perfectly good head on his shoulder -- and another in a dish on his desk!"
* Psych Out -- 1968-era Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern bein' trippy, dude.
* And (AND!) the return of Portland's own Famous Mysterious Actor -- immortalized in this Mike Russell Culture Pulp strip -- who will host his live, non-broadcast talk show with guests Wm. Steven Humphrey of The Portland Mercury and burlesque performers from Tease-O-Rama.
