On Sunday, June 24 at 10pm Strange Stuff will screen their debut film, Death of the Dead, the way it was intended, in a bar full of rowdy, drunk people. Expect the frequent hoot and holler, obnoxious laughs and people yelling at the screen. THAT is Strange Stuff.
When we embarked on this journey to make Strange Stuff movies we didn’t want to make thought-provoking, high brow cinema. We want people to grab some buddies, a few cold ones and maybe even a hit from the bong (although our attorney said that is illegal behavior and we cannot condone illegal behavior, so we have to say “Don’t smoke pot, kids”). Once you are completely liquored up and having a good time, that is the moment when a Strange Stuff movie becomes the best thing you’ve ever seen.
So tomorrow will be the first test of a true Strange Stuff screening. The suds will flow and the atmosphere will be light. And hopefully Death of the Dead gets its fair share of laughs along with the taunts. But in the end everyone will buy another round and say it was a good time. And if you decide you must see a Strange Stuff movie we encourage you, no, we damn near demand that you get yourself your favorite alcoholic beverage, grab some friends who enjoy the ridiculous as much as you do, and have a good time. That is what we want. That is Strange Stuff.
