Some of the weirdest, messiest, cruelest and cheesiest movies are ready to splatter at Gallery5, which is holding a Troma Entertainment 40th anniversary film series from Aug. 22 to Nov. 28. But even releases like “Fear Town, USA,” “The Slashening” and “VHS Massacre” may not seem so bad considering, well, everything else that’s going on.
Gallery5’s Nick Crider says, “It certainly does seem like some of the characters in the news and recent events throughout the world may have had a hand in why it just seems so perfect to put on a Troma film series.”
Screenings are $3 each, or $15 for a series pass. 510-0488 or gallery5arts.org.
