Did you know that Martin Kove, Bernie Casey, and Ronny Cox all appeared in a movie together and it was predictably amazing? You can catch STEELE JUSTICE screening from a 35mm print at the Alamo Drafthouse in Brooklyn at 9:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
Bizarre, cult rock n’ roll slasher flick ROCKTOBER BLOOD is being shown at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR at 7:30 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.

The double feature of 1958 noir oddity MURDER BY CONTRACT and Sam Fuller’s terrific melodrama THE CRIMSON KIMONO is happening at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco.

It honestly is not that good of a movie, but you really should not turn down the chance to catch a Charles Band production screen from a 35mm print in 3-D. METALSTORM: THE DESTRUCTION OF JARED-SYN is screening at Quad Cinema in New York at 8:55 pm. Tickets and info can be found here.
