From deep in the heart of the American Genre Film Archive comes a One Night Only event that no self-respecting disreputable film fanatic can afford to miss – the AGFA Triple Ripper!
On Friday, August 12th, The Mahoning Drive-In Theater partners with the maniacal movie mavens at AGFA to present three scintillatingly sordid sequels from the grimy grindhouse glory daze, an old-fashioned 35mm Drive-In dose of threefer madness to keep your brain bent into the cheeseburger-fueled wee hours of the night!
First up is Doris Wishman’s DOUBLE AGENT 73 (1974), starring Chesty Morgan as a seam-straining secret agent out to expose “The Big Two” and foil an international drug smuggling ring with her cleavingly concealed, explosive booby traps! A film that has to be seen to be believed, busting out of the mammoth Mahoning screen!
Then, adolescent idjits incite interdimensional irascibility when they summon a demon devotee who brings along a host of horrors in THE GATE II (1990)! See special effects that will haunt your nightmares and curdle your corndog!
For those whose consciousness and sanity remain, we finish you off with the incarceratory insanity of Jamaa Fanaka’s PENETENTIARY III (1987), a rabbit punch to the senses, courtesy of Cannon Films! Leon Isaac Kennedy returns as pokey-bound pugilist “Too Sweet”, once again behind bars and forced to duke it out for survival against a bareknuckle brood of beastly bruisers!
Featuring former GENERAL HOSTPITAL heartthrob Anthony Geary as prison gang leader “Serenghetti” and a kung-fu little person called “Thud”, the prisons most feared fighter, this film will pummel you into submission and send you home on a stretcher!
It's a night of eye-popping, jaw-dropping, sensory overload when AGFA and The Mahoning Drive-In Theater present a grinningly grindhouse feast for film fanatics on the big, big, BIG screen, under the stars and in your cars!
