Intro by Laurie Weeks! An insane X-rated black comedy from the minds of two late, great underground cult film auteurs, George Kuchar and Curt McDowell, THUNDERCRACK! begins as an  Old  Dark  House-style gothic horror but swiftly turns into an outrageous gut-busting camp sex fest. According to our guest, the brilliant author Laurie Weeks (Zippermouth), who first saw the film in 2000, “Guided by humor, curiosity, and sheer delight in the black-and-white gorgeousity of its own anarchy, the film is queer to the core.” You won’t want to miss this rarely screened and not-on-DVD masterpiece whose poster promised, “Ecstasy so great that all heaven and hell became but one SHANGRI-LA!”
