Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town: July at Cult Fiction Underground

Posted By on Tue, Jul 1, 2014 at 12:27 PM

Good stuff in the just-announced July schedule for Cult Fiction Underground, the basement DVD grindhouse located under Logue's Black Raven Emporium on Gallatin Road:

• Celebrate July 4 with a bomb bursting in air — the notorious Reefer Madness — then return this Saturday night for a visit from Jeremy Kinison's barnstorming Cut Throat Freak Show, featuring all the glass-eating, nose-nailing and socially unacceptable feats of strength you can stomach!

• Nashville filmmaker Cameron McCasland's old-school slasher opus The Lashman, featuring Stacey Dixon and Larry "Dr. Gangrene" Underwood (July 11), followed July 12 by the 1971 Max von Sydow chiller The Night Visitor.

• A wish-list item for local horror fans on July 18: Curtis Harrington's little-seen 1977 Carrie-meets-The Exorcist drive-in shocker Ruby. The next night belongs to Logue's annual Charles Bukowski vs. Hunter S. Thompson wallow in vicarious degradation.

• Finally, on July 25-26, Memphis guitarist/hammer-dulcimer player Ricko Donovan performs live accompaniment to the 1926 Greta Garbo melodrama The Temptress.
