Midnight Mass / Peaches Christ (2010)
AND proudly presented the UK debut of the underground San Francisco phenomena Midnight Mass, starring horror hostess Peaches Christ in this immersive, Rocky Horror-style celebration of cult movie making. The infamous pre-screening floorshows mirror the action upon screen, featuring such participatory delights as chilli-eating chowdowns, avant-garde impresarios and magical audience makeovers.
Peaches Christ is the drag alter ego of filmmaker Joshua Grannell and were are fortunate to host the International Premiere of his feature-length film debut, ALL ABOUT EVIL. A horror-comedy in which the owner and staff of an ailing movie theatre start churning out weekly gore-spattered shorts to satisfy hungry audiences, it stars a roll-call of alternative idols – including Natasha Lyonne, Mink Stole, Cassandra Peterson (Elvira, Mistress of the Dark) and Thomas Dekker.
Midnight Mass was presented with the support of Homotopia, Liverpool’s annual celebration of Queer Culture (1 – 30 Nov 2010) and Grimm Up North, Manchester’s horror and sci-fi festival (28 – 31 Oct 2010). In association with Peaches Christ Productions.
