Another Hole in the Head

As always, SF IndieFest's Another Hole in the Head — or HoleHead, as people in the know call it — offers a slate of past and future horror, sci-fi, and fantasy classics, although even by this festival's standards, the latter category features a surfeit of the ever-popular Sexy Ladies Drenched in Blood genre. There's Jessica Cameron's violent road movie Mania, which describes itself as "a fucked-up lesbian love story" from the "twisted minds" behind Cameron's 2013 Truth or Dare. Meanwhile, Jeffrey Scott Lando's slasher film Suspension follows a young horror-comic artist (Ellen MacNevin) who may be following in the footsteps of her serial-killer father. Christopher Coppola keeps the splatter local with Sacred Blood, featuring Bai Ling as a pink-wigged vampire on the seedier streets of San Francisco. This year's oldies include Joseph Zito's 1984 Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, often cited as the best of the series, and featuring people you've heard of (like Corey Feldman and Crispin Glover). You may also have heard of the final night's "secret screenings" of HD restorations of parts 2 and 3 of a certain trilogy, which HoleHead cryptically describes as "movies about good and evil that takes place in a galaxy far, far away." Hmm. Will these movies awaken your force? There's only one way to find out.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
