From Edmonton filmmaking collective House of Heathens (The Last Videostore) comes a new experience in B-Movie madness: Straight To Video: A B-Movie Odyssey! Video store clerk Kevin is closing his doors forever. When a cursed Beta tape accidentally unleashes a vortex inside the store it sucks him into alternate dimensions based on the bad movies on his shelves. He soon finds out being in a crappy film is a much more harrowing experience than being in one. Now, he must fight his way through different genre films to live - everything from Italian Star Wars knock-offs to Canuck slashers to anachronistic cyberpunk riffs. 

In John Carpenter’s classic, They Live legendary wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper plays a drifter looking for work, who makes a horrifying discovery through the use of special sunglasses: aliens have taken over the world! They have just disguised themselves as the upper class and rich of our planet. After finally convincing new friend Frank of this hidden invasion it’s up to them to enlighten the rest of us before they are silenced for good. Featuring the greatest one on one back alley fight scene from the 80s They Live is a must see on the big screen. So OBEY and come to the screening.
