• A man with mustache clutches a woman with an expression of dismay

Directed by San Francisco avant-garde filmmaker and sex-film auteur Curt McDowell, with arch dialogue by lead actor George Kuchar, Thundercrack! mashes together Old Hollywood-style melodrama, broad comedy, and horror elements with gritty sex scenes—gay, straight, and solo—to create a two-and-a-half-hour, black-and-white fever dream of sexual trauma, acted out by a group of travelers who seek shelter one dark and stormy night. – Marc Walkow, Film Comment.

A mainstay at London’s late, great Scala Cinema, Thundercrack! is being presented in conjunction with the irresistible Scala!!! Or the Incredibly Strange Rise and Fall of the World’s Wildest Cinema and How It Influenced a Mixed-up Generation of Weirdos and Misfits, showing earlier in the evening.

Director: Curt McDowell. Starring: Marion Eaton, George Kuchar, Melinda McDowell, Mark Ellinger, Mookie Blodgett, Ken Scudder & Moira Benson.
