Surgikill DVD Release Party at the Art Theatre of Long Beach on Thursday, February 17th!
2011-01-12 · By Editor
Marking Surgikill’s 21st birthday and what would have been Director Andy Milligan’s 82nd birthday, the DVD party will rock with Surgikill on the screen, live Q&A and plenty of complimentary food and drink.
Born on February 12, 1929 in St. Paul, Minnesota, Andy Milligan was a prolific movie maker. Throughout his tortured and controversial life he made nearly 30 low budget films from 1965 – 1990. His sense of humor, horror and movie making style was unique and it exploded the sexploitation genre to a whole new level incorporating much of his real life experiences into his films. The “Mulligan touch” as it was called, referred to his use of themes and caricatures.
Surgikill is a campy film about a masked killer that is killing off doctors, nurses, and patients at a poorly run Los Angeles hospital that is scheduled to be closed. Surgikill was Andy’s last film before he succumbed to AIDS in 1991 at the young age of 62.
On hand for live Q&A on the 17th will be Bouvier and Sherman Hirsh. Bouvier played Dr. Grace Goode in Surgikill and starred in another of Milligan’s films, Monstrosity, from 1989. Sherman Hirsh was one of the three Surgikill writers along with Andy and Sid Caplan.
