February 15 - 17, 2019
Westin Waterfront Hotel, Boston, MA
It’s everyone’s favorite genre hang: Boskone! A laidback weekend of panels and readings, I’ll be up here shooting my mouth off about alien abductions, African-American horror, and writing non-fiction. Find me when the full schedule is announced.
Hong-Kong-a-Thon 2: Electric Boogaloo
Saturday, February 23 @ 12:30pm
Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Avenue), NYC
$30/person, tickets are on sale now!
It’s baaaaack! Everyone’s still talking about the mind-shredding insanity of last year’s Hong-Kong-a-Thon and now the sequel is here to scramble even more of your neurons. Over the course of 12 eyeball-melting hours myself and the Subway Cinema guys will screen 6 Hong Kong action movies that hit harder, fall further, and shoot more bullets than your average film. All on 35mm, we won’t announce the titles until they appear onscreen but trust me — this collection of block-rocking classics and freaky deaky deep cuts offers more enjoyment, minute for minute, than Hollywood’s entire 2019 line-up. Most of these movies aren’t available on DVD or Blu Ray and haven’t played NYC in over 20 years. If you’ve ever wondered what all the rumpus about Hong Kong movies was about, now’s your chance to find out. And if you already know, why don’t you have your tickets already?
