Is your busy life of murders and executions getting you down? Are the cran-apple stains you can’t get out of your sheets driving you crazy? Do you think everyone is wrong about Huey Lewis and the News’ early work being their best (clearly, it was a little too new wave and they really came into their own, commercially and artistically, when Sports came out in ’83)?
Then come join The MUFF Society for a night of film, fun, and utterly insane prizes at Carlton Cinema! (Sorry, they don’t have a good bathroom to do coke in.)
February is Women in Horror Month and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to show Mary Harron’s classic homegrown (shot in Toronto!) horror, American Psycho.
American Psycho introduces us to Patrick Bateman, a slick-haired finance bro who has the same problems as any yuppie of the ‘80s: his business cards have not yet reached perfection, he can’t get a reservation at the “it” restaurant Dorsia, and he has a seemingly endless amount of video tapes to return. He’s also likes to dissect girls.
Bateman and his merry band of coke-snorters have their origins in Bret Easton Ellis’ novel of the same name, but are brought to life by the direction of Mary Harron. Harron co-wrote the American Psycho screenplay with actress Guinevere Turner and together they amplified the intelligent satire, biting humour, and aestheticized gore, making it perfect for the big screen.
Join us in the lobby at 8:00 PM and don’t forget to apply your herb-mint facial mask so that you are fresh and ready for our photobooth fun! Try one of our to-die-for themed MUFFtails, shake your booty like Christian Bale in a raincoat to our latest #MUFFMix playlist, and donate a dollar to get a limited-edition American Psycho button!
Our Mini MUFF selection this month will be Long Branch, co-directed and co-written by local filmmakers Linsey Stewart and Dane Clark. Lead actress Jenny Raven will be in attendance.
