Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies

From the late 1950s through the mid-1980s, many workaday directors tasked with exposing film for the workplace and classrooms moonlit in cemeteries, bayous, and basements lensing brilliant genre pieces and prurient trash for drive-ins and grindhouses. Archivist and programmer Jon Dieringer will present on some of the best known examples, including George Romero and Herk Harvey, along with more obscure figures, such as the Satantic sexploitation filmmaker who made piston-pumping films for oil companies; a duo from Detroit who parlayed an independently made anti-drug PSA into an opportunity to make a gory biker revenge flick; and more. We’ll consider how quasi-documentary tropes and regional myth were appropriated within lurid, fantastic, and terrifying narratives; and reciprocally, how wry bits of the macabre livened up training and educational films. Dieringer will also discuss adapting his research into a series at Anthology Film Archives.

THE TAINT plus Q&A with director

US. 2011

DIR: D. BOLDUC, D. NELSON

The water is tainted. The Taint poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to crush women's heads with rocks (or other objects). When society is transformed into a land of sadistic violence and horrible brutality, it is up to Phil O'Ginny and his hot friend, Misandra, to combat the horrible evil that is The Taint. Can they survive a world brimming with castration and endless head crushing?!

Q&A with the director will follow after the film.
