B Movie Bingo: Samurai Cop
August 16, 2014
Comedy + Action + Bingo!
Special Guest: the Samurai Cop himself, Matt Hannon! Cross out the squares as the insanity unfolds onscreen. This unique, interactive cinema experience combines terrible action movies–screened on VHS!–with live comedy and BINGO. Hosted by Portland comedy team Wolf Choir, play along with the inexplicably weird and entertaining Samurai Cop, which features bad wigs, severed limbs, gun and/or sword fights, and long, awkward love scenes.
In 1989, the brutal, yet incompetent Japanese Katana Gang hold a death grip on the city of Los Angeles. The only man who can save the city is hunky cop Joe 'The Samurai' Marshall. He's not very good with a sword, or at being a cop for that matter, but star Matt Hannon was once Sylvester Stallone's personal bodyguard, so what he knows how to wear a Speedo. Sidekick Frank has the best facial expressions on the planet. And the Police Chief...well, let's just say he has his own problems.
During the film, win prizes while checking your Bingo card and calling out the most awesome B-movie clichés, like "Bar Fight," "Suspended From the Force," and "Three Mustaches on Screen At the Same Time."
After the film, we'll have a Q&A with Samurai Cop star Matt Hannon, who will talk about the making of the film and the current Kickstarter campaign for Samurai Cop 2. Plus, we'll have a sneak peak at the new Samurai Cop blu ray, coming soon from Cinema Epoch.
