Mystics In Bali
Thursday 31.10.19 from 7pm
PINK FLAMINGO CINEMA presents Mystics In Bali
YOU WILL BELIEVE A HEAD CAN FLY….. Even as a product from the wild days of Indonesian cinema MYSTICS IN BALI (aka Leák, 1981) is a uniquely gonzo experience.
Director H. Tjut Djalil (Lady Terminator, Dangerous Seductress) takes us on a flight of deranged fancy with baby-eating demons, black magic and more cackling than you can possibly handle.
When a foolish American tourist (played by an Australian) tries to dabble in the local dark arts for research purposes she learns firsthand about the Leyak- a vampiric, shapeshifting flying head followed by its own entrails and commanded by a powerful Queen.
Magical duels, folkloric rituals and a whole lot of murder culminate in one of the most spectacular showdowns you will ever see on screen.
Doors at 7:30pm, film at 8pm. Suggested donation $5-$10.
Pink Flamingo Cinema exists on the land of the Gadigal and Wangal People of the Eora Nation, from whom sovereignty was never ceded.

Slumber Party Massacre
Thursday 24.10.19 from 7pm
PINK FLAMINGO CINEMA Presents Slumber Party Massacre
An 18-year-old high school girl is left at home by her parents and decides to have a slumber party. Meanwhile, a mass murderer with a propensity for power tools has escaped from prison, and eventually makes his way to the party where the guests begin dropping off one by one.
Part satire, part exploitation THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE (1982) is a hard movie to pin down. Written by queer author Rita Mae Brown (Rubyfruit Jungle) and directed by Amy Holden Jones it was originally intended to be an exploration of the rules of the Dead Teenager Movie, specifically as they related to women. In the end it was financed by legendary sleazelord Roger Corman, who demanded as much gratuitous nudity as they could fit in frame. The end result is a weird, campy ride delivering both subversive parody and wall-to-wall violence + titties in equal measure, years before the self aware irony of 90s slashers.
Doors at 7:30, movie 8pm. Suggested donation $5-$10.

PINK FLAMINGO CINEMA Presents: Fatal Pulse
Pink Flamingo Cinema, Static Vision and Film Club are proud to present the Australian premiere of the latest work of psycho-mastery from true counter-cultural auteur Damon Packard (Foxfur, Reflections of Evil), FATAL PULSE (aka Night Pulse aka Untitled Yuppie Fear Thriller).
Though off-brand James Spader douche-bag Trent DuPont may control the film industry – and the American government – all his wealth can’t stop him from being sucked into an apocalyptic, psychedelic nightmare of pop culture, popular uprising and puppetry in FATAL/NIGHT PULSE (aka Untitled Yuppie Fear Thriller), a bonafide, deep-fried, neo-noir nightmare.
An avant-garde archivist, Packard creates complex loops out of cultural detritus, jamming them into dream logic narratives populated by paranoid celebrity lookalikes, off-beat catchphrases, wanders through the menacing streets of night-time Los Angeles and seemingly random acts of violence. In FATAL/NIGHT PULSE, Packard also tackles the world’s most pressing questions, attempting to get to the bottom of capitalist Illuminati mind-control, the corporate takeover that’s destroyed our world and just exactly what happened in the early ’90s.
A film like no other, FATAL PULSE is a nugget of pure cine-weirdo gold, straight from the murky depths of independent cinema’s real underground. Have you checked your pulse lately?
After struggling for years to self-finance his film career – often living in cars and tents – Packard claims to have received a large inheritance, which helped him complete Reflections of Evil (2002): a long treatise on contemporary American paranoia which made it onto the Film Comment Editor’s List of the Best Films of 2005. Packard gained notoriety after he sent DVDs of the film to thousands of celebrities and made 23,000 professionally-pressed copies of the film available to the public for free. Packard is known for his highly pessimistic view of the contemporary film industry post-1979, often lamenting that directors have lost creative control of their work and vision has been sacrificed for profit.
Doors at 7:30pm, movie from 8pm. Tickets $10 presale and on the door ($8 concession). If you are unwaged or otherwise unable to afford a ticket, please DM Pink Flamingo Cinema or Static Vision.
