Chulita Vinyl Club

Chulita Vinyl Club was launched in 2014 as an all-girl, all-vinyl club for self-identifying womxn of color in the context of providing a space for empowerment and togetherness. The group says that “we stand united as a female DJ collective spanning seven national chapters bringing together a community of vinyl-loving girls.” There is no music genre policy in the collective as anything goes. You’re just as likely to hear sixties girl-groups, punk, new wave, Chicano oldies, or dancehall reggae on any given night.

When Victor messes up the wedding rehearsals horribly, he decides to venture deep into the woods while practicing his vows, but after perfecting them he places Victoria’s wedding ring on what he believes to be a finger shaped stick. Quickly realizing his mistake, Victor learns that the finger shaped stick was actually the skeletal finger of an enchanted Corpse Bride named Emily (Helena Bonham Carter), who then whisks him off to the dark and mysterious netherworld of the dead where they are now married.

Robot Monster may well be the worst science fiction film ever made (Plan 9 From Outer Space is its main competition for that dubious honor), but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun to watch. Filmed in an eye-straining 3D process, this curious melange takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. Evidently, there are only six people left on earth: little Johnny (Gregory Moffett), his sisters Alice (Claudia Barrett) and Carla (Pamela Paulson), his widowed mother (Selena Royle), his supposed father the Professor (John Mylong) and the prof’s assistant Roy (George Nader). As the survivors wander around Bronson Canyon, the Professor comes to the conclusion that the rest of the world has been wiped out by a “calcinator death ray,” wielded by an army of creatures from the planet Ro-Man. The invaders are supposed to be killer robots, but they look more like gorillas in diving helmets (that’s because gorilla impersonator George Barrows supplied his own monkey suit when the robot costumes proved too expensive to build). Ordered to kill the six survivors, the head Ro-Man balks when he (it?) falls in love with Alice. The tenor of the film can best be captured by this vignette from Ro-Man’s main soliloquy: “To be like human! To laugh! Feel! Want! Why are these things not in the plan? … I cannot — yet I must. How do you calculate that? At what point on the graph do ‘must’ and ‘cannot’ meet?” And don’t forget Ro-Man’s “intergalactic table”: a ham radio that blows bubbles. Robot Monster is a must-see for any and all devotees of truly bad cinema. ~ Rotten Tomatoes.

It’s Autumn and these should be the simple times for Jay (Maika Monroe). It should be about school, boys, and weekends out on the lake with friends. And then along comes Hugh (Jake Weary). The two hit it off, but after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter Hugh kidnaps Jay and warns her of a curse he just passed to her. Now plagued by strange visions and the inescapable feeling that someone or perhaps something, is following her. Jay and her friends must find a way to stop the horrors following them. It could be anybody at any time, a stranger on the bus or somebody they know and love. It won’t stop until it gets her and everyone else with the curse. A film by David Robert Mitchell.
