Schlock-4K Restoration -John Landis/Art House Theater Day


Join Indievents and Club David, Sunday, September 23, as we celebrate Art House Theater Day. Indievents and Club David screen more truly independent and art house titles yearly than any other organization or theater in South Dakota. We are truly honored to be a part of Art House Day screening a title exclusively available on this particular day!

This year we are more than excited to be hosting a 4K restoration of John Landis’ first feature film, SCHLOCK.

The “Banana Killer” is at large and terrorizing a So Cal Suburb! Could the killer be the missing link? Will anyone be able to stop him?

SCHLOCK certainly is the missing link from creature features of the past to the filmmaker’s later creations like American Werewolf in London whose combination of creature horror and comedy influenced films for the last few decades. This is the film that preceded The Kentucky Fried Movie, The Blues Brothers, and American Werewolf in London. This is the film to see where Landis’ comedy and horror seeds were planted.

“A micro-budgeted monster comedy made when [Landis] was just 21 years old…while his filmography covers numerous genres, his heart has always belonged to creature features and monster movies. Crafted with creativity, confidence, and a legitimately funny sense of humor.” — Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects

“Grounded in his abiding love of silly gags, cheap monkey suits, monster movies and inside jokes, SCHLOCK contains many of the gags and themes found in such later John Landis classics as KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE, albeit in embryonic form.” — Nathan Rabin, AV Club

The film has been restored in 4K and Art House Theater Day is the exclusive first day to see the absurdity in its full glory!

You can watch a trailer for the film here:

The screenings will be at 7 PM and 9:00 pm at Club David. Tickets are $8 in advance and $12 at the door.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
