Chester Turner, known for directing shot-on-video insanity Black Devil Doll from Hell, was long thought to have met his demise in a car crash years ago. Turns out, he's been just fine and has been quietly living in Illinois! Louis Justin of Massacre Video found him living in Chicago, promptly escorted him to a few conventions, and the rest is up to you. Come out to meet him tonight at Lincoln Hall for a screening of his film Tales from the Quadead Zone and a live Q&A!
Turner was a DIY man who did everything from writing, directing, editing, and composing his SOV cult films into the classics they are today. His second film, Tales from the Quadead Zone, is an anthology shot-on-video horror movie filled with gun-totin' rednecks, killer ghost-clowns (!), and, of course, bloodbaths. Rules and any sense of logic are not to be expected here.
The sponsors say it perfectly enough:
“This is nonstop psychedelic delirium for the price of a sandwich. Turner's manic, lo-fi creativity impresses to no end, making for an experience that can never be replicated, repeated, or equaled. Basically, Tales from the Quadead Zone is the greatest SOV horror film of all time, no exceptions.”
Sponsored by The 3-Penny Was Here, Massacre Video, Everything Is Terrible, and BleedingSkull.com, the night will be one to remember. Bleeding Skull is also having a book launch party here to promote their new book, “Bleeding Skull! A 1980s Trash-Horror Odyssey.”
Film begins at 6:00pm, followed by Q&A with director Chester Turner. Ask any and all questions you may have! Tickets $10. Ages 21+ only, please. Lincoln Hall, 2424 N. Lincoln Avenue.
Chester is currently working on Tales from the Quadead Zone 2!
