Vancouver, prepare to be to Soska’d. Two of our favorite directors, Jen and Sylvia Soska, collectively known as the Twisted Twins, are launching Horror Nights, a screening of a different horror film each month at The Rio in their home city of Vancouver.
The Soskas will kick off the inaugural Horror Nights presentation with the 2002 extreme Japanese horror film The Suicide Club. The show begins at 11pm with a video intro by Rolly Teranishi (who plays Genesis in The Suicide Club) created exclusively for Horror Nights. Also performing will be the dark goddess Little Miss Risk doing a movie-themed horror burlesque number and the Human Tackle Box Russ Foxx (whose talents are pretty much described in his name).
Tickets are only $8, and the price is knocked down to a mere $6 if you arrive in a film-related costume. Ages 19+ only. Minors, don’t even think about it. For more info visit the Horror Nights event page on Facebook. And for even more from the Twisted Twins, check out their online radio show, Monday’s Suck, on RadioAmplifire.com at 7pm PT.
The Suicide Club, the Twins’ top pick, is known in Japan as Suicide Circle, a 2002 Japanese independent horror film that gained a considerable amount of notoriety in film festivals around the world for its controversial subject matter and gory presentation. It has since developed a significant cult following and won the Jury Prize for Most Groundbreaking Film at the Fantasia Film Festival. The movie was written and directed by Sion Sono. It deals with a wave of seemingly unconnected suicides that strikes Japan and the efforts of the police to determine the reasons behind the strange behavior
