Tonight Weird Wednesday Presents a surprise title film. Lars from Alamo Drafthouse says “We’re going to rip the top of your head off this time with our extra special Weird Wednesday surprise title. It’s one of the three pillars of weirdness, one of the all-time great exploitation titles ever made. 100% not for children or the humorless. No refunds will be extended to anyone who drops dead from a brain hemorrhage or excessive laughing. You won’t believe it. And if you tell me you believe it I won’t believe you.” Couldn’t have said it better myself and since I trust his judgement, I say go for a little mystery and excitement tonight and you probably won’t be disappointed. Alamo Ritz 10pm.

Weird Wednesday presents the 1982 Action/Drama film Vice Squad. Hooking you from the beginning with the opening credit song “Neon Slime” sung by former soap star and film’s star, Wing Hauser, you’ll know your headed to the slimy streets of Hollywood hell. A film with prostitutes surviving the night and murderous pimps looking for their next pleasure kill, Vice Squad is nothing short of some 80′s pure sleazed out entertainment. 107 min. R.
