They’re dusting off the projector at the Prince Music Theater this week for a free screening of last year’s most talked about shockfest, A Serbian Film. It’s been called everything from brilliant to child porn and will soon receive a theatrical release courtesy of Philadelphia’s own Invincible Pictures who are holding this screening in order to capture audience reactions for a “national advertising campaign”. They should make a bundle from the eventual DVD release though it’s really not the kind of film that begs for repeat viewings. In fact, if you see it more than once then I’d suggest that you’re desensitized to a point far beyond the film’s intended audience…I’m talking to those of you who are psyched to add it to your collection of cult atrocities like Nekromantik and Cannibal Holocaust. Go torture!
A Serbian Film screens Thursday March 10 at 7:30 PM. Screening details here.
