TEEN LUST in 35mm on 7/12 at the Nitehawk!

Temple of Schlock founder Chris Poggiali will be at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn on Thursday, July 12th, to introduce a rare 35mm showing of James Hong's THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR (a.k.a. TEEN LUST)! This event, part of the “The Deuce” screening series, is expected to sell out, so get your tickets now! Written, produced and directed by busy and beloved character actor James Hong, this episodic, idiosyncratic bad-taste comedy about a group of high school newly-grads consistently surprises by giving equal time to their creepy parents, neighbors, clergymen, and local law enforcement. Filmed in 1977 under the title SO LONG, COLUMBUS HIGH but completed as THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, it failed to find an audience upon its release in 1978 as THE GIRLS NEXT DOOR and spent the next five years haunting drive-ins under yet another two titles before hitting the Deuce on September 9th, 1983 (Top-lining a triple bill at the Victory with GETTING IT ON and THE CREEPER).

“…authentically trashy….amounts to a John Waters movie made by a retarded midwesterner.” – Sleazoid Express

The show starts at 9:30 p.m. and, as always, there will be prizes afterwards. For more details, head over to the event page.
