Hey guys! We're back from camp and ready to go to the movies.

"An alien parasite with the ability to possess human bodies goes on a violent crime spree in LA, pursued by a human cop and an alien cop inhabiting a human body."
Wednesday 6th @ 10pm (1hr 43min)
"There's no need to see Part 1 of this travelogue that shines a light into the dark corners of weird America. Rummaging through our garbage and peeking in our closets, the producers expose such wild goings-ons as karate nuns, topless carwashes, amateur superheroes, worm eaters, erotic bakeries, public orgies, Dead Kennedys lead singer Jello Biafra's mayoral run, and a brothel... but for dogs. On its surface, presented with a bemused narrator who provides color commentary for a presumably European audience, it has an air of educational or journalistic authenticity, but consumers of mondo-style exploitation documentaries will recognize that it's mostly just an excuse to show nudity and as much violent, weird or gross images as they were able to capture or produce. This movie wants to shock and titillate you! Guaranteed to be at least 20% not-fake."
