This week, Mediatrocities is proud to highlight the ongoing cult movie series “Wednesday Rewind” at The Logan Theatre in Chicago presented by film historian, author and co-founder of the fantastic site, Everything is Terrible, the wonderful Katie Rife.
Joining me in the interview is the “talented” film auteur Ernie Tarté. We spoke about the great rare films in store for those willing to shell out a measly $3 admission.
Playing tonight at The Logan is the craziness of Rollerblade, which combines the post-apocalyptic future with roller derby nuns. Katie joined me is discussing this and other odd finds for the Wednesday Rewind series. However, things did get a tad bit uncomfortable when the snide comments of Tarté nearly derailed the interview. Thank goodness, I was able to hold it together for the rest of her visit:
KR: We’re showing Rollerblade which is a really insane shot-on-video, sci-fi movie about a cult called The Cosmic Order of Rollerblade… They are like roller derby nuns…they cut each other with knives and then they bathe in a holy hot tub…their wounds get healed and then they skate around a post-apocalyptic landscape which is really just like a warehouse in L.A.
ET: It is called Rollerblade?
KR: It’s called Rollerblade. But, interesting fact, everybody thinks that it’s a movie about rollerblading but it’s not.
ET: Then why is it called Rollerblade?
KR: Because, it’s the Sisters of the Holy Order of Rollerblade.
ET: Oh Christ!
KR: Your attention to detail is not very good I gotta say for a film director.
ET: How dare you insult Tarte!

BILLY WAS A DEAF KID in the BRAIN KITCHEN
Director Burke Lewis presented his lovely movie BILLY WAS A DEAF KID in person at our Brain Kitchen Theatre in May of 2012.
It was an intimate gathering of fellow filmmakers and movie lovers, including director Mike Gibisser (Finally Lillian and Dan) and author/cult leader Katie Rife (Everything is Terrible). A rigorous and illuminating exchange of ideas and stories ensued. We celebrate this inaugural assembly of the Mighty Beings of the Kingdom of Nawizopaati.
