The Deadly Spawn

When: Wed., April 14, 8 p.m. 2010

The demented minds behind Cinema Overdrive have been salivating about screening this film for months. This 1983 B movie is the gory, goofy and occasionally scary treat that makes for good exploitation. A straight-up knock-off of Alien (some versions were called Return of the Aliens: The Deadly Spawn), it involves otherworldly life forms that crash to Earth and grow into large, very disgusting worm-mouth creatures that eat teenagers. With a low budget and lots of blood, it has attracted enough of a following that it even has a disturbingly detailed official Web site at www.deadlyspawn.net. Cinema Overdrive's 35 mm print screening also features original prints based on the film for sale by local artist Danny Miller and the usual grindhouse trailers before and after the screening. —Zack Smith

Price: $5
