Movie Loft scuttles into Shadowbox Studio, during the greatest season of the year, with a screening of the 1973 horror vampire power that is 'Ganja & Hess'!

Directed by Bill Gunn, and starring Duane Jones (the lead in 'Night of the Living Dead'), this underseen and oft-maligned film was cut up and edited into a Blaxploited & Draculaic jumble (with other titles like 'Blood Couple'). The truth is that this movie is The Truth, an experimental art foray into matters of race, addiction, consumption, isolation, identity, sex and religion. And, yes, blood drinking.

The unreleased soundtrack is amazing in itself, and the musical offerings for the evening will be spooky Halloween sounds with heavy shakes of the eeriest funk we can find. Come early for hot dogs and tunes starting at 7, movie follows around 8.

Free, donations appreciated. BYO or sample what's on-hand!
