BUT film festival goes WORM
Two festival highlights from BUT (B-movies, Underground & Trash) filmfestival: King of Comics and Remington and the Zombadings part 1.
King of Comics - Rosa von Praunheim’s documentary King of Comics explores the life and work of Ralf König, one of Germany’s most celebrated comic book writers and artists - best known for his work The Most Desired Man. Fearless of almost any subject matter, König’s uncompromising work deals with urban living, gay stereotypes, the impact of religion on the gay community and Islamic extremism.
Remington and the Zombadings part 1 - Remington has found his first love in his new neighbor, Hannah. She’s not equally entranced—at least not until he starts to compliment her mother, tell better jokes, and wear clothing that’s way more hip. Is it his attempts to impress her, or something more sinister that’s beyond his control? For when Remington was a child, he insulted a drag queen in a graveyard. In response, a powerful spell was cast: that Remington would someday turn into a homosexual! Meanwhile, the town’s most fabulous gays are turning up dead, covered in mysterious green goo. If Remington doesn’t escape the effects of the curse, he may be the killer’s next target. And of course, there are the Zombadings, the most fabulous zombies you’ve ever seen! This unlikely satire pokes fun at homophobia, camp and the zombie horror genre while telling a touching story friendship and family.
