It’s been almost a year since we had a proper Terror in the Aisles (unless there’s one that I’m forgetting and never wrote up), so it’s high time we had another one. As with the 2013 Massacre, this one was held at the Patio Theater. The lineup featured the Midwestern debut of Devil in My Ride, with director Gary Michael Schultz as special guest, alongside Dario Argento’s Suspiria and Lucio Fulci’s The Black Cat.
Unfortunately, the heat was either entirely out or only sporadically functional, forcing me to leave before The Black Cat, but I still got to see some great stuff.
Iconic, but boring!
A study on the effects of child abuse, plus some telekinetic “Bad Touch” along for the ride.
Story threads come together as the characters prepare for the sacrifice ritual.
Why, oh, why did I get an apartment?!
The latest Terror in the Aisles event will be held this Saturday, November 30, at the Patio Theater (6008 W. Irving Park Rd., Chicago), with doors open at 6:30pm. The program looks to be a corker, with a Dario Argento classic (Suspiria) filling the second slot and a Lucio Fulci giallo (The Black Cat) finishing the night off.
In the lead-off slot is Devil in My Ride, receiving its Midwest début. It was directed and co-written by Gary Michael Schultz and stars Joey Bicicchi, Erin Breen, Frank Zeiger and Sid Haig. Mr. Schultz, who will appear in person at Terror in the Aisles, was recently kind enough to grant us an email interview.
Chuck Norris vs. the legions of Satan in an international buddy-cop action flick? Could be worse.
