Yes: So bad it’s good by Jason Powell

Thank the B-Movie Gods, the Washington Psychotronic Film Society has returned from the dead! Left without a home after the closing of Dr Dremo’s this January, the WPFS have finally found a new host venue in the Old Arlington Grill, the new restaurant located inside the Arlington Cinema N Drafthouse. Now entering their twentieth year of serving up cinematic crapsterpieces for a slightly intoxicated audience, Psychotronic is quite an institution around these parts (WPFS president Carl Cephas was even interviewed for a piece on WAMU’s Metro Connection a few years ago).

This Wednesday at 8:30, WPFS will be christening their new space with a screening of 1985’s The Dungeonmaster, a low, low, loooow budget flick with a sucked-into-a-computer-world plot that is clearly just an ill-advised attempt to cash in on the success of Disney’s 1982 smash Tron. Well, I say ill-advised, but then again Tron didn’t feature Richard Moll as an evil sorceror (Yes, that’s Bull from Night Court wearing a cowl and a terrible wig in the picture above) or Blackie Lawless from W.A.S.P. as, well… basically himself. Full schedule available here.

PS – I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Carl and WPFS for a few of the wonderful gifts they’ve given me over the years: Bad Ronald, Battle Royale, Bio-Zombie, Blood Freak, Ebola Syndrome, Ichi the Killer, I Love Maria, Meet the Feebles, Tears of the Black Tiger, Versus, and Wild Zero.
