Description

No one under 18 admitted without parent or guardian. Seriously.

February is Women in Horror Month, which celebrates, well, Women in Horror (and especially women horror filmmakers), and to honor this, we'll be showing this hit of the indie horror film circuit, made by super-swell and super-twisted identical twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska! And apparently we'll be premiering an all-new cut of the film! Make no mistake - this is violent and bloody (and fun - but it is very bloody). And ultra-low budget (with video and audio issues to match the budget). It also features Carlos Gallardo (El Mariachi), and amazingly has stunts by folks who have worked on major Hollywood releases such as Watchmen; Tron: Legacy; 2012; I, Robot; Fantastic Four; X-Men: The Last Stand; Elektra; The Day the Earth Stood Still and many more!

Women in Horror Month also brilliantly ties in with a national blood drive, so we at MOBS urge you to donate blood during this month. Please visit Blood Source at http://www.bloodsource.org for information on how you can donate and help save lives. They take walk-ins, and will issue a receipt after donating. Bring that receipt to "Dead Hooker in a Trunk," and get a free concession item!

Set in beautiful Vancouver, four friends set out on an everyday errand and end up in a fight for their lives when they discover the body of a dead hooker left in their trunk.

Led by a sexy, impulsive Badass (Sylvia Soska), her distant Geek twin sister (Jen Soska), their bible thumping, Jesus loving Goody Two Shoes friend (CJ Wallis), and a chaotic, rockstar Junkie pal (Rikki Gagne), the group has to put aside their differences to dispose of the body before they're next.

Thrown into their own personal purgatory, they face off against persistent police, a sleazy motel manager, chainsaw wielding triads, and a brutal serial killer. All the while they are followed by a mysterious Cowboy Pimp (John Tench) who wants to claim the corpse for his own.

Will they uncover the truth behind the body and be able to stand up to their demons? Buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life filled with gun fights, extreme violence, blood, guts, gore, and goats!

"Jen and Sylvia Soska have pretty much grabbed the indie horror film community by the collar and demanded admission to this boys club. Word to the wise: If I were you, I wouldn't argue with them. I've seen what they can do." - FanGirltastic

"Occasionally you get someone who starts out in the realm of no-budget grindhouse-type fare but is too good for it. David Cronenberg was one. His young fellow Canadians Jen and Sylvia Soska … may be two others. The end result [of Dead Hooker] is driftier and trippier than your typical wannabe-grindhouse fare. The movie is surprisingly meditative and becalmed at times; at other times, of course, blood splatters." - efilmcritic

"You should check out the Soska Sisters, who made a film called 'Dead Hooker In A Trunk.' They made it low budget and it's awesome. It's really violent and the stunts are superb. They are two Canadian twin sisters who made a feature that they wrote, produced, directed, and starred in. And it's fantastic." - Eli Roth
