Gore for Good

Horror community gathering to help veterans Monday

Quick word of warning: If you think you're a horror fan and believe in helping charity, and you're not at A Very Green & Lynch Christmas this Monday at the Alamo Ritz, then you better check your Fangoria subscription in at the door.

Round here, Adam Green is known as the post-post-modern gore revivalist behind Hatchet, Hatchet II and superfun short The Tivo. But after Monday, he and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, the upcoming Knights of Badassdom) should be known as the people who helped put an elevator in Austin's American Legion Hall.

Yup, they're flying into town with a casketful o' goodies, plus exclusive footage from their upcoming TV show for FEARnet, Holliston and clips from their upcoming (and deliciously distasteful) horror anthology Chillerama, and it's all for a great local cause.

For those of you who want to put your bloodflecked money where your charitable heart is, hang around for the silent auction to win some amazing props from Green and Lynch's films, plus a date with FEARnet critic and the Internet's most prolific film Tweeter, Scott E. Weinberg. This could be your chance to pick up the perfect Christmas present (after all, what proud grandma wouldn't want a signed copy of the Criterion edition of Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom under the tree?)

Even if you can only afford a ticket, the pair have promised more free schwag than a pickled punk could handle: Just defeat them with a horror trivia question, and you'll walk away with anything from a signed Roger Corman DVD to Hatchet 2 crew gear. If the photo they posted over at the Alamo Drafthouse blog is anything to go by, they're not kidding when they pledge that "nobody leaves empty-handed or sober."

Tickets are available now via the Drafthouse website. Get 'em, before Victor Crowley get you.

And if you needed any more convincing, check out the trailers for Chillerama and Knights of Badassdom, starring Peter goddam Dinklage, go-to genre ass-kicker Summer Glau and Community's Danny Pudi as a roleplayer called Lando.
