KILLERS ON WHEELS in 35mm on 7/13 at the Nitehawk!

Wow, check this out: Temple of Schlock founder Chris Poggiali will be at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn on Thursday, July 13th, to introduce a rare 35mm showing of the amazing KILLERS ON WHEELS! This event, part of the “The Deuce” screening series, is expected to sell out, so get your tickets now! HELLS ANGELS ON WHEELS collides with STRAW DOGS and LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT in this brutal biker flick from Hong Kong's legendary Shaw Brothers Studios. A series of increasingly hostile run-ins between a gang of rowdy Yamaha riders and two young couples staying at an island vacation home leads to deaths by electrocution, fire, boiling oil, broken glass, harpoon gun, and even outboard motor! In other words, this is more top-notch schlock from the director of THE BOXER'S OMEN! Plus, you get a snappy soundtrack of stolen music ranging from Piero Piccioni's "Identikit 2" and Herbie Hancock's "Heartbeat" to Lalo Schifrin cues swiped from KELLY'S HEROES. This is the very same, extremely rare English-dubbed 35mm print that played the grindhouses of 42nd Street! The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and, as always, there will be prizes afterwards.
