The unique, interactive cinema experience B-Movie Bingo combines live comedy from Portland, Oregon comedy team Wolf Choir with the best in terrible action movies—screened from VHS!—for a high-stakes bingo competition where eagle-eyed audiences compete for one-of-a-kind prizes by watching for classic B-movie clichés like "Bar Fight," "Suspended From the Force," and "Three Mustaches on Screen at the Same Time." This special SIFF edition of B-Movie Bingo goes international with a classic of Indonesian trash cinema, Rambu: The Intruder. Totally action-packed and filled with bizarre dialogue ("Sometimes I lie awake at night and think about my destiny"), this movie delivers on every level, though any resemblance between Rambu and a certain '80s action hero is totally coincidental—despite that one scene where he puts on a red bandanna, straps on a massive gun, and runs around shirtless. New Zealand-born English teacher-turned-actor Peter O'Brian stars as Rambu, an unemployed police-academy dropout who stages a private war on a pair of white-suit-wearing, cocaine-guzzling, sexually deviant crime bosses. As a tug-of-war for power unfolds, Rambu takes action using his wits, martial-arts skills, greasy massages, and some truly mysterious boomerang balls. Be warned: Lives, and lots of food, will be wasted!
Jopi Burnama is an Indonesian filmmaker known for Ferocious Female Freedom Fighters and Kamp tawanan wanita. In 1986, he directed Rambu: The Intruder, a fun film jam-packed with action, which is now being presented by B-Movie Bingo.
