The next two months will see obligatory Hallmark holidays
that advise us to cherish our parents and all they’ve done for us. This Friday
April 15, however, you should probably come celebrate the worst our caregivers
had to offer in a double feature straight from child-rearing hell at New York’s
92Y Tribeca (200 Hudson St, 212-601-1000).
Friday's entry in 92Y’s ongoing "Beer Goggles" series
sees back-to-back viewings of William Castle’s Joan Crawford-starring STRAIT
JACKET and the Terry O’Quinn original 80’s classic THE STEPFATHER. The evening
gets underway at 8 p.m. although as you might gather by the series' theme, 92Y
would love it if you came by the cafe early to put some pints away first.
I’ll be out for what should be a sweet night at the movies,
so come by and let’s high five over horror and some beers! Admission is $10
each, and you can order tickets by clicking on the film’s title below.
STRAIT-JACKET (1964) Dir. William Castle
"Joan Crawford stars as Lucy, a wife who takes an ax to the
heads of her husband and his lover after catching them together. Twenty years
later, just out of the asylum, she reunites with her daughter, Carol (Diane
Baker). Carol encourages her mother to spruce up her appearance with a
flattering dress and some very clunky bracelets, but becomes concerned with her
mother's odd reaction to her fiancé. When more heads start rolling, who is the
one to blame? Crawford dialed up the crazy for this performance and as in all
William Castle movies, the payoffs are in the details. Come early to get
sloshed in Cafe 92YTribeca!"
THE STEPFATHER (1987) Dir. Joseph Ruben
"All Jerry Blake wants is a perfect family—and he'll kill
his way out of one and move on to the next if that's what it takes! After
dispensing with one unacceptable clan, Jerry changes his name and his look and
latches on to a new widow, Susan. But daughter Stephanie thinks something is
just not right about her new dad. Before Terry O'Quinn found a new audience as John
Locke on Lost, he reached cult status as the homicidal stepfather. Give it the
full Beer Goggles treatment—arrive early for beers in Cafe 92YTribeca and make
the gory thrills even more scream-inducing!"
