The A.F.S. present BLOOD TRACKS!

Tuesday April 19th
8:30pm Doors  9:00pm Film

Black Box Theater Upstairs
95 Empire Street,
Providence, RI

With winter hanging around these parts lately I've decided to present BLOOD TRACKS, the somewhat lost 1985 slasher about an 80's metal band shooting a video in the snowy mountains. Unfortunately when an avalanche strands them the band and film crew are picked off one by one. BLOOD TRACKS is essentially The Hills Have Eyes in the snow with a hair metal band. 

The one unfortunate note is that all known versions of this movie come from old video masters so some scenes may be a bit too dark but it's worth sticking with the movie for the fun you'll have as an audience.

Check out this trailer!

archeologist gone mad, or have they incurred the wrath of an Etruscan curse?

fantastically mis-marketed to an unsuspecting 1972 U.S.

expected! Screening from our well worn
