The summertime favorite is back.

The annual series of staged readings of "the best worst movies of all time" triumphantly returns for a 12th year. For four weeks this summer, the immensely popular one-night-only readings feature the clunkiest, junkiest films ever made, brought back to life on a shoestring budget.

June 24 — CAGED! (1950)

Naïve teenager Marie is thrown into the ladies’ slammer for being an accessory to robbery. Will she come out a woman … or a wildcat? Bust out and come to this over-the-top Pride Weekend reading featuring an all-female cast! Directed by Neo-Futurist David Kodeski (Wicked Woman; The Flaming Urge) and festival curator Rachel Claff.

July 1 — FACE/OFF (1997)

In our 2009 reading of Cool as Ice, Dina Walters played the role she was born to play: Vanilla Ice. This year she plays the other role she was born to play: Nicolas Cage. Trying to take her down (via sketchy surgical science) is Neo-Futurist Kristie Koehler-Vuocolo as John Travolta. Bullets and doves will fly in this face-swappin’, gender-swappin’ spectacular, also directed by Walters.

July 8 — SUSPIRIA (1977)

From the moment she arrives at the prestigious Tanz Academy, ballet dancer Suzy Bannion senses that something horribly evil lurks within its walls. So what if Suspiria has gorgeous cinematography and buckets of gore? Director and Neo-Futurist Stephanie Shaw is out to prove that this gonzo Italian horror film is as chock full of cheese as a good manicotti.

July 15 – SOMEONE I TOUCHED (1975)

Man, made-for-TV movies were so different in the 1970s. Like, remember that one where a pregnant Cloris Leachman’s husband cheated on her with a teenager and got syphilis? And then Cloris was worried her baby wouldn’t have arms? But she still found time to sing the movie’s theme song? *Sigh* Those were the days. Directed by festival veteran Edward Thomas-Herrera (Devil Girl from Mars; Sorority Girl).
