Weird, Wild and Wonderful Wednesdays, a product of Make Believe Seattle, devoted to re-appraising ’80s and ’90s cult cinema and introducing a new generation to forgotten classics.
What do you get when you throw Roddy McDowall (Fright Night), Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon), and Amanda Wyss (A Nightmare on Elm Street) into a large office tower, have them play a weird-ass RPG, and, oh, avoid the wrath of a severely traumatized baboon with a thirst for blood? SHAKMA is what happens, folks.
BTW: You’ll be rooting for the baboon.
About Make Believe Seattle:
MAKE BELIEVE SEATTLE is a genre film festival located in the Columbia City section of Seattle, dedicated to shining a light on the best in horror, sci-fi, fantasy, animation, and everything else we couch under that blanket term “genre.” There are few areas of the country more steeped in the mysterious and fantastical than Seattle, and we hope to shine a dark light on that energy that courses through the PNW’s veins. Striving to be a genre festival for everyone, our diverse and unpredictable programming aims to take even the most ardent genre fans out of their comfort zones. So join us in March of 2023 and let’s make believe…together.
