Here’s One for the Cinephiles, and the Furries

she used her charms to tame the wild, she thought of everything except what to name the childLast time we checked in with the Warehouse, they were luring the easily jail-baited out on the town by throwing a “high school party.” Tonight, they’re giving the same treatment to the Furries with their screening of Mistress of the Apes, a film about a woman who finds love in a clan of ape men.

The film is one in a series sponsored by the Washington Psychotronic Film Society, which prides itself on extending the shelf lives of offbeat or obscure films — and Mistress of the Apes is certainly that. The 1979 film, which shares a director with such classics as Curse of the Swamp Creature and Zontar: The Thing from Venus Two, has a scant presence on even the internet. Two reviews, out of a grand total of five on IMDB, lament the fact that it does not portray humans actually having sex with animals. As disappointing as THAT is, the movie almost certainly does contain bad dialogue, low-tech special effects, and all the makings of a “so bad it’s good” cheesefest.

The film starts at 8PM and a $2 donation is suggested. If you like the idea of obscure films but aren’t so much into ape-love, next week’s film is dark comedy about “a car that runs on human blood.” Sweet!

    It’s heartening to see writers like Jean Auel and Steven King make insanely profitable careers with novels based on old, cheesy movies.

    Sorry, Stephen King. And I really liked “The Four Seasons.”

    Two bucks? I guess the Paultard…er …Furries can afford that.

    Tell me when these guys show a film about an economy that runs on human blood. That I’d like to see.
