The Zombie Walk that starts it always commands more attention (flesh eaters are such drama queens), but the six-week-long Trash Film Orgy late-night movie series offers its own pleasures.
Like the schadenfreude that arises from watching an actor’s performance grow worse and worse as a film progresses. Or the sense of wonder derived from seeing local participants’ colorful antics in stage shows preceding TFO screenings at Sacramento’s Crest Theatre.
Below is a rundown of the meticulously curated 14th Trash Film Orgy. All movies except Saturday’s series opener – the 2004 “Dawn of the Dead” – start at midnight. “Dead” starts at 11 p.m. Doors open 90 minutes before each screening. TFO films are for ages 18 and older.
