Hellroller

Fri, Jun 22, 2012

1992, Dir. Gary J. Levinson
With Ron Litman, Penny Arcade, and Michelle Bauer

Not only did VHS allow for the distribution of a broader array of films, the medium also sparked a new wave of shot-on-video genre filmmaking.  Easily one of the most original, Hellroller is a slasher film featuring a wheelchair-bound serial killer. The film’s director, Gary Levinson, was a genre jack-of-all-trades; he acted in cult classics such as the Aquatic Nazi Zombie gem Shock Waves, and produced popular rentals such as Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers

Starring scream queen Michelle Bauer, NYC performance art institution Penny Arcade, and musician Johnny Legend, Hellroller is a film like no other, showcasing the unprecedented permutations in filmmaking made possible by the advent of VHS.

Special introduction by Dan Kinem and Tim May Directors of the upcoming VHS Documentary Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector
