Slime City Celebrates 25Th Anniversary
Slime City Celebrates 25Th Anniversary At The Alamo, On Amazon Instant, And On Vinyl
Slime City, the 1988 cult film written and directed by Gregory Lamberson (Dry Bones, Killer Rack) is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a special screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin, Texas, and the release of its soundtrack on vinyl by Strange Disc Records & Filmworks. The cult classic recently became available for streaming and download on Amazon Instant Video, and remains available on DVD from Alternative Cinema/POP Cinema Studios.
The screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz is on Tuesday, November 11th at 10:20 pm. Admission is only $3, and advance tickets are on sale now. The Ritz will screen the original 16m print struck for the film’s theatrical release as a midnight movie in New York City, which includes six minutes of footage deleted by the filmmaker for its numerous re-releases. Lamberson shot an exclusive five-minute introduction for the Ritz’s audience.
“I wanted to do something special for this anniversary,” says Lamberson, who was 18 when he wrote the film and 21 when he directed it, “but I was too busy with other film projects and novels. Joseph Ziemba from Alamo Drafthouse and Cameron Dean from Strange Disc Records contacted me around the same time, neither one realizing this was the film’s quarter century anniversary. I’m glad they did, because I’ve always wanted to screen at an Alamo theater, and it’s fitting that Rob Tomaro’s jazzy synth score gets released on vinyl. The record will be out by the end of the year, or early in 2016 – which will be the anniversary of the film’s original VHS release.”
“Strange Disc is beyond excited to work with director Gregory Lamberson and composer Robert Tomaro to bring the score compositions from Slime City to vinyl,” says Dean. “The soundtrack will be completely remastered for vinyl by Josh Bonati and will feature soon-to-be announced limited variants. This score fits well among the classic synth heavy horror scores that have been given well their deserved reissues as of late. However, along with synthesizer themes, Rob Tomaro delivers a heavy dose of rock and punk guitar work that gives Slime City a truly unique sound that I have never heard duplicated.”
Lamberson saw three releases in October: his short film Gave Up the Ghost, based on a story by fellow author Jeff Strand, was released on Blu-ray as part of the horor anthology Creepers; his horror comedy Dry Bones, starring Debbie Rochon, was released on DVD by Camp Motion Pictures, and is available for rent at Family Video locations around the country; and his werewolf novel The Frenzy Wolves was published by Medallion Press and received critical acclaim.
“I’ll have to find a way to top all of this for Slime City’s 30th anniversary in 2019,” he says.
