BLACK ROSES (1988)
DIR. JOHN FASANO, 84 MIN. CANADA/USA

== MOVIE DESCRIPTION ==

1980s satanic panic becomes reality in this hilariously schlocky glam rock, heavy metal horror creature feature filmed almost entirely in Dundas and Hamilton, ON!

When the sleepy town of Mill Basin (aka. Dundas, Ontario) is invaded by a sleazy band of satanic rockers, the self-righteous adults of the town attempt to shut down the concert series. But when the band -- BLACK ROSES -- overcomes parental censorship and takes to the stage, all hell breaks loose and the town's population of good kids begin to turn bad. BLOODSHED, RIOTS, and MASS MURDER assail the defenseless townspeople as their youth begin to change into murderous monsters before their very eyes!

Starring: John Martin (Fire in the Night), Sal Viviano (The Jitters), Paul Kelman (My Bloody Valentine), Julie Adams (Creature form the Black Lagoon), Frank Dietz (Zombie Nightmare)

== RETURN TO MILL BASIN -- BLACK ROSES LOCATIONS TOUR == 

*LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE!*

Join Hexploitation Film Festival director Aaron Allen for a personal, guided tour of the film's exterior shooting locations in historic Dundas, ON. Take a trip back to 1987 and experience, first hand, the extensive use of Dundas landmarks and locations immortalized in BLACK ROSES to portray the sleepy, midwestern town of Mill Basin USA. Learn interesting and quirky trivia about the making of this obscure yet endearing heavy metal horror flick in the days before Hamilton became a hot Hollywood shooting location.

* Exclusive Tour Swag for all tour attendees including:
