AGFA announces theatrical screenings of John Landis’ SCHLOCK for Art House Theater Day

American Genre Film Archive, the largest non-profit genre film archive in the world, is honored to announce screenings of Arrow Films’ 4K restoration of John Landis’ SCHLOCK for Art House Theater Day on September 23, 2018.

A love stranger than KING KONG! From writer/director John Landis (ANIMAL HOUSE, THE BLUES BROTHERS, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) comes a love story transcending the boundaries of nature and good taste. Carnage! Terror! Banana skins! The mighty prehistoric ape Schlocktropus has emerged from hiding to embark on a full-scale rampage across a quiet SoCal suburb. The police are baffled. The army is powerless. The body count is rising . . . but when Schlock encounters a kindly blind woman who sees beyond his grotesque visage, the homicidal simian is presented with a chance at redemption! Shot over twelve days on a micro-budget, this uproarious pastiche of monster movies launched the careers of both Landis and legendary SFX artist Rick Baker (MEN IN BLACK, VIDEODROME).

In addition to Arrow’s stunning 4K restoration of the feature, all screenings of SCHLOCK on Arthouse Theater Day will feature an exclusive video introduction from writer/director/star John Landis!
