The First Inaugural Jeffrey Combs Film Festival

You probably don’t realise that Jeffrey Combs is actually your favourite actor.
From his iconic role as Herbert West in the Re-Animator film trilogy to his nine (!) different Star Trek
characters, Combs has had as interesting and diverse a career as any character actor could want. At
least, the folks from Video Store Burnouts and the Re-AniMates Podcast think so, and wanted to
celebrate the great man with a cavalcade of his finest, funnest, goopiest, ookiest films. And so they shall!
Join us at the Motley Bauhaus for a whole weekend of zombies, aliens, corpse brides, Marvel facsimiles,
sexy machines and some of the maddest of mad scientists this side of Dr Jekyl, as we traverse just a
fraction of Combs’ illustrious and wonderfully odd career.

This event takes place on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Boon Wurrung Peoples
of the Eastern Kulin.

Run times:
Opening night!
Drinks and schmoozing from 7pm, movie at 8pm - Frightmare (1983)
2:30pm - 4:30pm: Doctor Mordrid (1992)
6:30pm - 8:30pm: The Phantom Empire (1988)
9:00pm - 11:00pm: Bride of Re-Animator (1990)
3:00pm - 5:00pm: Lurking Fear (1994)
7:00pm - 9:00pm: Re-Animator (1985)

Video Store Burnouts is a weird society that strives to test our minds versus the oddest movies, found
only in the dustiest bargain bins, in the worst video stores, in the crummiest neighbourhoods, at the end
of a busy Friday rush when even the stoners have left for the night.
Brain melting movies for burnt out brains. An awful movie club for awful movie fans. This is for the real
VHS heads.

The idea for Re-AniMates Podcast came about during the Melbourne lockdowns when movie anorak
Lisa decided to watch all the films of her favourite character actor, Jeffrey Combs she could get her
grubby mitts on and, like with most modern hobbies, decided to make a podcast out of it. Commendable
endeavor? Noble pursuit? A scintillating journey through the oft-forgotten but fascinating annals of film
history? That’s not for her to say. But yes.
