The DAMAGED Viewing Film Society, inspired by the absolute litany of Louis Fowler’s DAMAGED outings (DAMAGED Magazine, the DAMAGED Hearing radio show and the DAMAGED Viewing movie podcast), is a fun and funny live version of the absolutely insane world of trash and cult cinema, presented without pretension or prejudice.

Hosted by Fowler and Patrick Crain, two cinema obsessives whose love of obscure film goes far beyond the realms of the silver screen and into the dumpster behind it, DV’s mission is to bring these classic (and not-so-classic) movies out of obscurity and present them, warts and all, for a public eager for something they’ve never seen before. DAMAGED Viewing explores a world of wild cinema that only the dark and dirtiest of us even knew existed.

Trash Cinema. Cult Film. Obscure Movies. Outré Images. Insane Storytelling. Unheralded masterpieces. This is DAMAGED Viewing.

“A low, low budgeted film from over 30 years ago, from country not so far, far away…”
For the inaugural DAMAGED Viewing presentation, we’re proud to show the 1979 Spaghetti sci-fi flick STARCRASH! Written and directed by Italian b-movie icon Luigi Cozzi, this STAR WARS-inspired space opera—one of the first—is, in our opinions, better than anything George Lucas could’ve dreamed up. Sultry starlet Caroline Munro is intergalactic warrior Stella Star, who, along with her alien sidekick Akton (Marjoe Gortner) and cowboy robot Elle, takes on the evil empire of Count Zarth Arn (Joe Spinell) and rescues the dashing Prince Simon (David Hasselhoff). It’s sojourn through hyperspace that, in a just, alternate universe, would’ve been the biggest movie franchise of all-time!

Like all OKC Film Club events, this is free and open to all.
