THE TRIPPER is a horror film whose villain is an axe-wielding former president. It was directed by David Arquette and co-written by Arquette and former comical type Joe Harris (DARKNESS FALLS) which is why we’re mentioning it here. The film also stars comics writer Thomas Jane as well as Jaime King, Paul Reubens, Jason Mewes, Lucas Haas, Balthazar Getty, etc etc so it’s got “CULT MOVIE” written all over it. The film is having a special sneak this Sunday night and Tuesday as part of Horror Fest at these theatres:

Also, we screwed up badly by not alerting you to the one week York York run of LINDA LINDA LINDA, a movie released by Viz (yes that one), It’s about three girls trying to become a band, and got a a rave review in the New York Times, of all places

If a movie about guitar-strumming Japanese high school girls isn’t high on your list of weekend destinations, you could be missing one of this year’s most unexpected pleasures. “Linda Linda Linda,” an understated and disarmingly human tale of an all-girl band in the runup to the annual rock festival at the members’ school, takes its title from a 1980s pop song so catchy your brain may never want to let it go.

It’s New York run is over, but if you get a chance, check it out. Cute Japanese girls in short skirts. What are you waiting for?


  1. L.L.L. was playing in Montreal a couple weeks ago and I have to say I loved it. The slow, meandering pace may turn off some viewers but on the whole it’s a hugely satisfying film. Also, the soundtrack (by James Iha) is great. The film also stars Korean starlet, Bae Doo Na (Take Care of My Cat, Sympathy for Mr Vengeance) who, somehow, looks ten years younger (and in this role.

    Arthur – you’ll be glad to know the Ramones scene got one of the biggest laughs in the film.
