The Castro Theatre plays host to this very special introduction as local midnight movie impresario, Grannell’s alter-ego, and Evil co-star Peaches Christ presents a wild, over-the-top pre-show extravaganza celebrating All About Evil’s screening as well as the kick-off of a cross-country event-based theatrical roadshow where Peaches will present the film with specially created stage-shows and events in cities everywhere.
Ms. Christ has been invited to turn the screening into a Midnight Mass produced “Spooktacular”, the likes of which have never been seen before. Prepare to be enthralled and amazed by a wild, multi-media, rock ‘n’ roll entertainment that will be remembered for years to come. Peaches is bringing in not only many of her notorious Midnight Mass Players, but she’s invited some of the stars of All About Evil as well, including Natasha Lyonne, Mink Stole, and Thomas Dekker, who will all be appearing as part of the show. Live music to get you on your feet! Shocks and surprises to keep you reeling!
Also scheduled to be in attendance is the film’s writer/director, Joshua Grannell, who will be available after the screening for what is sure to be a colorful and insightful Q&A with the cast and audience.

All About Evil is a wicked black comedy set in the world of a horror movie about a mousy librarian (Natasha Lyonne) who inherits her father’s beloved but failing old movie house. In order to save the family business, she discovers her inner serial killer – and a legion of rabid gore fans – when she starts turning out a series of grisly shorts. What her fans don’t realize yet is that the murders in the movies are all too real!
The film costars Thomas Dekker (Sarah Connor Chronicles, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Mink Stole (Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom), Noah Segan (Deadgirl, Brick), Jack Donner (Star Trek), Julie Caitlin Brown (Babylon 5), Patrick Bristow (Showgirls), Peaches Christ (Season Of The Troll), and many more.
