Quint's got an upcoming mega-interview with Michael Biehn that I can't wait to read. Seems that being in GRINDHOUSE may have given Biehn the directing bug, as he's finished a film called THE VICTIM. It's a grindhouse movie through and through, judging from the website. The film looks mean, trashy, and brutal, just how a grindhouse movie should be:
The Houston Film Critics Society and Odyssee Pictures are bringing THE VICTIM for a one night engagement at the River Oaks on August 17th at 7:30, with Michael Biehn and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn in attendance! There will be a Q&A after the film, where Michael will talk about the making of THE VICTIM and his career, and this is going to be a whole lot of fun. Houston doesn't often get events like this - our friends in Austin normally get them, so this is an opportunity to see one of our geek heroes in person with his new film.
Tickets are still available HERE - only $13. If you're coming, be sure to check out the Facebook event page. So you get the movie, you get Michael Biehn, and you get a fun time seeing a grindhouse movie they way it was meant to be seen - at Houston's classic River Oaks theater, which is one of our best and oldest theaters. Here's the plot synopsis:
Good time girls ANNIE (Jennifer Blanc) and MARY (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie’s life is put in jeopardy when she is witness to a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies. Fleeing from ATTACKERS (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood) she stumbles across KYLE (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods.
The ruggedly handsome loner stays far from civilization – that is – until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind. WHO IS THE VICTIM?
I'll be there. Houston, time to let your geek flag fly!
