Horrible Movie: A Brief History of Russian Trash

poster_horrible movie

The film tells the story of several representatives of the Russian amateur thrash and horror cinema. The characters remember how they took their first steps on the set, what difficulties they faced, how their fate turned out in the future. Not all of them went on to make films, but each has its own unique story.

Evelien de Jong

RADIO ENZON consists of Evelien de Jong, Raisa Prins and Mees de Jong and is a Futuristic-Tech-Noise-Art-Performance band, with which Raisa, Mees and Evelien perform futuristic performances inspired by Planet Enzon, where they perform the sounds of Enzon live.

Enzon.

A futuristic art project that Evelien de Jong has been working on for years. She discovered the planet and named it Enzon. She could be a nice base of operations for humanity, should we continue to ruin our planet. Or because a deranged leader would push a red button... In her artworks, installations and performances, Evelien searches for answers to questions such as: What does Enzon look like? How do you go to Enzon? Would you want to go there? How do you prepare for a trip to Enzon? How do you make sure you stay healthy when you go to Enzon? What does Enzon sound like? Together, these installations form a whole world unto themselves, into a parallel universe. RADIO ENZON is experimental and a real experience to experience. Especially for the Butfilmfestival Mees, Raisa and Evelien of RADIO ENZON have a new Futuristic-Tech-Noise-Art-Performance in store. Come and experience it with us.

Oesters

oesters 'Oysters'

The pearl of the oyster. Geay oysters, Gillardeau oysters, Umami oysters, Oysri oysters and David Hervé oysters. One thing they all have in common, they simply come from the sea. The way we look at these beautiful oysters carries in itself a strange duality. We find them repulsive, disgusting and sometimes even terrifying. At the same time, they embody the height of decadence. The pearls of oysters are here to show you the absolute truth about oysters and, in doing so, make you experience real life. Awesome in lavish quantity. Swallow in a wave of abundance. Get carried away with us and experience what you've been missing all this time. Get pleasure sick together with us and get carried away to what you have always longed for.

The band from the hilarious no-budget “Aquarel The Movie” (2023) by Joost & Pim Kraan, of which we have the avant-premiere at our festival this day, will play their rattle punk music this evening with their band The Aquarellites.

Two men play groovy uptempo game soundtrack disco punk metal mania!! 

Flashblade 7's music style is a mixture of punk/metal/game soundtrack/industrial and pop. Think of Andrew W.K., Ministry and Aux Raux, but then with the happy sounds of happy hardcore from 80's disco/synthpop. They look like Johnny Depp and Dolph Lundgren (but then in a trashy way) and bring instant classics such as Limbo Hard and the Apo-Calypso! Armed with a Casio song bench and guitar, they are ready to go into battle with the audience. So power up and see them live, because the party is on, like Donkey Kong!

An Egyptian caterer kills various women in suburban Miami to use their body parts to revive a dormant Egyptian goddess while an inept police detective tries to track him down. With a special Egyptian menu, he tries trick an inquisitive suburban lady.

Part of our foodfilm program it is listed high on the eternal list of cult films. Back in the early sixties, there was nothing like it, and audiences were shocked by the extreme sickness and gore of the film. Audiences nowadays might raise an eyebrow at the portrayal of the sinister Egyptian shop owner and his overacting.

Director Herschell Gordon Lewis rose to fame as the inventor of what you could refer to as gore cinema.
