Screening: Bad Girl Dracula + More!

  • 766 West Broad Street Athens, GA, 30601 United States (map)

Trio Contemporary Art Gallery will present a special 3D screening of “Bad Girl Dracula,” the latest movie by long-­running Athens underground film collective Gonzoriffic, on Saturday, December 9th, 2017 at 8pm. “The Werewolf Turned into a Person” and “Dr. Humpinstein’s Erotik Castle” will also be shown, followed by an informal Q&A with the filmmakers.

Filmed in September 2017 at Trio Gallery, “Bad Girl Dracula” is a camped­ up interpretation of ‘70s lesbian vampire movies by Jess Franco, with a primary cast that includes Dee Flowered and Tittiana Sprinkles of the Athens burlesque troupe Effie’s Club Follies and Atlanta visual artist and performer Thio Rose.

“The Werewolf Turned into a Person” left viewers stunned at last month’s Gonzoriffic Underground Movie Show at Ciné. The bizarre short stars Dee Flowered and Addison Nikki and incorporates dialogue taken from real conversations with director Andrew Shearer’s 4­ year­ old child as well as some unique GoPro footage shot outside Atlanta’s Monsterama convention.

“Dr. Humpinstein’s Erotik Castle” is a feminist take on the B ­movie styles of Ed Wood and Russ Meyer, using the structure of the cult classic “Orgy of the Dead” to make a statement about body positivity. It was made in and around Athens in 2011 and features an old ­school girl gang rumble filmed at the concrete plant outside the Chase Street warehouses.

The program runs 60 minutes and is unrated. A $5 donation is suggested.
