The Philly-area premiere of splatter-heavy Japanese horror/comedy Helldriver will be held tomorrow night at the Prince Music Theater at 7:30 PM and will be followed by post-film performances by Japanese rock bands Uzuhi and High Teen Boogie. The event will include a charity raffle with tons of prizes from the likes of Pink Eiga, Synapse Films, and Tokyo No Records. $15 admission with all proceeds benefiting the Japanese Red Cross. Go to Hell for a good cause, see you there.
This is a launch event for July’s four-day Philadelphia Japan Arts Matsuri, a celebration of current Japanese film, music, and art with, again, all proceeds benefiting the JRC.
