"Death Wish at 120 Decibels!" So screams the poster for this 1980 Australian flick directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith, the low-budget auteur responsible for such Aussie grindhouse flicks as Kung Fu Killers, BMX Bandits and Turkey Shoot (as well as Leprechaun 4: In Space). Australian stuntman Grant Page plays himself; he hangs with the heavy metal band Sorcery and earns the attention of a reporter played by Trenchard-Smith's wife, Margaret Gerard. The film vanished quickly from theaters, but it earned a hardcore following (including Quentin Tarantino) on VHS and was finally tracked down in a garage in 2006 and restored for a DVD release. This is a rare and crazy as hell cinematic experience, the kind only Cinema Overdrive could bring you. The flick starts at 8 p.m. and includes a bevy of classic trailers. —Zack Smith
