WORDS AND PHOTOS: Tacoma Cult Film Club's third anniversary party

By Steve Dunkelberger on April 9, 2012


Easter Sunday, the venerable Tacoma Cult Film Club marked its third anniversary with hallmarks of American film.


In keeping with tradition, the films screened were bad, bad, bad, bad. Martin Scorsese and Ron Howard wept from the back of the house.

The Rev. Colin quipped, "These films are not inept. There is nothing ept about them."

The third anniversary program featured "overlooked films" from the past' year's bi-monthly TCFC gathering at its permanent home, The Acme Grub Cage. Rev. Colin smiled as she screened Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, an environmental tome shot in 2011 set in the Everglades starring '80s pop stars Tiffany and Debbie Gibson. Spoiler alert: Gibson is a very tone string bean; Tiffany is ... well, not.

Another film selection was Birdemic: Shock and Terror, which is basically a modern version of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, but without the cool special effects, solid acting, artistic camera angles or quality production.

Toss in a potluck of pork products and it was a great Zombie Jesus day at the movies.
