I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR 4 SCREAMS
Presented by Cindy Popp for Future Front Texas
AKA “What’s your favorite scary movie?” AKA “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment” AKA “How many Culkins are there!” Are you ready for 6.9 (nice) hours of Ghostface terrorizing Sydney Prescott? Are you prepared to go on a journey with Courteney Cox’s hair stylist? Can you believe how many fucking people are in these movies? If you are a die-hard slasher fan or are just looking for a way to kick off Spooky Season, join us in a marathon screening of all four movies benefitting Future Front Texas–the top-rated nonprofit of Woodsboro High!
Cindy Popp understands that there are certain rules that one must abide by in order to successfully survive a horror movie. Future Front Texas is a 501c3 nonprofit, homegrown in Austin, Texas. We started as a grassroots meet-up series called Boss Babes ATX (bbatx) in 2015. We are run by a four-person staff and a network of amazing volunteers, each committed to cultivating spaces where women and queer creatives, founders and leaders can grow together.

Out Of The Closet And Into The Sheets presented by FFTWINZ
Presented by FFTWINZ for RAICES
Nightmare on Elm Street 2- Freddy’s Revenge
Made in 1985, before being gay was sponsored by Bank Of America, this movie is gay shame at its finest. This sequel was based on Wes Craven’s, Nightmare on Elm Street. Wes was against the sequel idea, so they showed his ass and made the gayest horror movie ever. There will be a sick pre-show and lots of slow motion jump roping by tiny children singing nursery rhymes.
Beth Schindler and Lex Vaughn aka FFTWINz are artists and lez clowns, who make fun and bring an obnoxious, yet endearing little brother vibe everywhere they go. They will be joined by their orphaned stepchild Elissa Ussery, a peak era Edward Furlong stunt double and horror wiz kid. It will be a sexy family affair.
We will be raising money for Raices- The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services.

OUTside of Society: A Night of Surreal Grotesque and Monsters in/out of the Closet
Presented by and for OUTsider Fest
Amidst the wanton wickedness of the weekend before All Hallows’ Eve, MOHA and OUTsider present a drive-in screening of 1989’s Society—a film in which the worst of the well-to-do get the terror treatment they deserve! Directed by Filipino-American, Brian Yuzna, Society is wild, body horror ride that unleashes all the absurdity, gore and garish of your ’80s/’90s fantasies/frightmares. A campy-cum-creepout class satire that serves up a frightful “fuck you” to the excesses and exploitations of yuppie culture of yore: With its tongue-in-cheek tagline of “the rich have always feed upon the poor,” Society is an outlandish sendup of status that strikes a startlingly salient note about how truly scary snobbery can be.
In honor of this fabulously frightening flick, in which the camp comes out to play and concealed identities creep their way out of the closet, let’s consider: Are the figures that lurk in the shadows the ones we should fear? Or is it the monsters in broad daylight who pose the most devilish dangers of all? Playing off the petrifying potentialities of evils un/seen, come indulge in a night of fantastical festivities, including a costume contest on the theme of (with due respect to Harry Benshoff) “Monsters in/out of the Closet”—let those deviant imaginations run wild ya vamps! Plus, a macabre music playlist curated by the gayazz ghouls of OUTsider, and other tricks and treats—all culminating in an interactive screening of Society that will set your spine all the way to tingle.
OUTsider is an Austin-based transmedia nonprofit that celebrates the bold originality and creative nonconformity of the LGBTQ+ communities through the presentation of provocative, overlooked and out-of-the-box film, dance, theater, performance art, music, writing and visual art.
Through its annual festival and conference, OUTsider unites queer artists, audiences and scholars from around the globe to exchange ideas, ignite conversations, transcend boundaries and experience new pleasures through artistic discovery.
