Black Ocean Presents
J. CANNIBAL’S FEAST OF FLESH VIII
featuring the Italian cult classic CEMETERY MAN
plus special guests BLACK CAT BURLESQUE
with live music by VAGIANT
Saturday, April 11th / Midnight / $10
Real-life undertaker and long time zombie fanatic J. Cannibal—dubbed the King of Horror Burlesque—presents a gruesome banquet of midnight mayhem!
This frightful night of fun kicks off with Vagiant: the all-girl, all-punk outfit from Allston rock city. Even if you don’t recognize their songs form the smash-hit videogame Rock Band, their no-holds-barred songs about drinking, fucking and fighting are sure to pump you up for a zombie-ass-kicking good time! Following their set will be a bevy of grotesque burlesque courtesy of the infamous horror troupe, Black Cat Burlesque. Dedicated to putting the BUMP back into the night, Black Cat Burlesque has been raising pulses, the dead and a whole lot of hell since 2003. As the bad seeds of Boston Burlesque, this scream team mines the depths of their twisted psyches—blending striptease thrills and spookshow chills to push the boundaries of the art form and explore the dark, cobwebbed corners of neo-cabaret.
For the night’s feature, Mr. Cannibal has hand-picked one of his all-time favorite zombie films: CEMETERY MAN. Not only is this an oustanding zombie film, but Martin Scorsese himself has called it one of the best Italian fims of the 1990s, period. Featuring flying heads, hot zombie sex, undead motorbike brats and the coolest gravedigger to ever swagger across the silver screen, this film actually inspired Mr. Cannibal to get into the undertaking business himself. You definitely want to catch this one on the big screen!
Free gory goodie bags will be handed out to all, and J. Cannibal will award a number of prizes for the best zombie costumes from New England Comics, Regeneration Tattoo and Horror Business. If all this ghoulish glory has whet your appetite for freaky films, Boston-area residents can also trek down to their local branch of Hollywood Express and browse J. Cannibal’s very own “picks” section, where they can check out some of his favorite horror movies of all time.
Brought to you by the creative minds of Black Ocean, this will be a show of insanity from beyond the grave that you don’t want to miss! With over 400 fiends showing up to each Feast of Flesh over the past few years, go ahead and get your tickets now at coolidge.org!
A thick slab of praise for J. Cannibal and his Feast of Flesh:
J. Cannibal, the ‘King of Horror Burlesque.’ —Boston’s Weekly Dig
J. Cannibal’s Feast of Flesh, led by real-life undertaker and zombie lover J. Cannibal, is a celebration of all things terrifying. —The Improper Bostonian
Think Rocky Horror Picture Show with less androgyny and more anthropophagy. —The Onion
[J.Cannibal] is the sort of guy people brag about knowing. After all, he sounds like an exotic, epic character: poet, undertaker, horror-burlesque king, small-press publisher, show promoter, fake-blood engineer. —The Boston Phoenix
