DECATUR — Film fans aged 21 and older are invited to attend a free screening of "Masked Mutilator," a long-lost horror movie from 1994, Thursday night at Lock Stock & Barrel, 129 S. Oakland Avenue.
Organizer Marc Girdler said Thursday's event will be the first time "Masked Mutilator" will ever be screened in public. Girdler in an email described the movie as "wild" and said it "combines slasher movie vibes with pro wrestling."
In addition to his website, marcfusion.com, Girdler said the screening will be presented by local sci-fi and horror film festival Dead in Decatur and Severin Films — a studio that specializes in recovering and restoring "the most controversial and provocative features from around the world."
Girdler said the event begins at 8:30 p.m. and will also feature special messages recorded for the audience by the film's cast.
