-THE BAD FILM SOCIETY –
GETS UNSELFCONSCIOUSLY JUVENILE AND OVERWHELMINGLY QUIRKY
The public is invited to the next Bad Film Society meeting on Sunday,
MARCH 1ST at 6PM in The Ashland Elks’ Dungeon.
The feature will be the freakishly surreal GENTLEMEN BRONCOS
made by the Mormon folks behind Napoleon Dynamite. A lonely
home-schooled teen’s aspirations of being a sci-fi writer are turned

redneck space warrior named Bronco. But then the teen’s dream
come true when his quirky pals film an ultra-low-budget amateur

Prior to the feature, fascinatingly strange shorts will be shown
including brain melting cartoons, rare trailers for films too bad to sit

prop in horror history!
Members should bring a dish for the potluck dinner starting at 6PM.
