In its initial mysterious one-week L.A. theatrical run --in which it was booked into EIGHT theaters in the same arthouse chain, no less-- the inexplicable-in-every-way Dangerous Men was viewed by literally about 50 people--though receipts may have been deceptively higher cause of maniacs like us seeing it two and three times. After those few viewers quickly ran out and told everyone they knew about how mindbendingly entertaining and unusual it was, a flare of interest generated a handful of midnight shows before it finally vanished. Since its disappearance into the ether--few have been marked by the experience of seeing Dangerous Men, but none will forget! These intrepid viewers, whenever they run into each other at a party or BBQ, will swap stories like veterans of a great war battle, eagerly recounting practically every scene in the picture in minute detail to each other, in no particular order of awesomeness, savoring every memory.

Upon our own first viewing of the film, we geniunely wondered for the first twenty minutes whether or not it was all a hoax, an elaborate well-done prank by a precocious art school student. EVERYTHING was wrong in oh- so-right a way, and the director's name, John S. Rad, was just too, uh, rad to seem like someone had thought it up. It didn't seem possible that someone could've hit the bullseye in every scene, every shot, every audio edit--but there you have it. Forget Troll 2, forget Ed Wood, forget--dare we say, The Visitor--Dangerous Men is the holiest of all Holyfuckingshits.

“It took us almost three and a half years of continuous begging, pleading and debasement before [director] John Rad’s family agreed to license us the film…it should very much be considered the Holy Grail of Holy F*cking Sh#t! Films” James E. Shapiro, Drafthouse Films COO

Dangerous Men tells the story of Mina, a woman who “witnesses her fiancé’s brutal murder by beach thugs [and] sets out on a venomous spree to eradicate all human trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun, and an undying rage, she murders her way through the masculine half of the city’s populace. A renegade cop is hot on her heels, a trail that also leads him to the subhuman criminal overlord known as Black Pepper.
