Late Additions:

October 1 – Mayfair Theatre “Smash Cut”. ++++
11 p.m. Free screening in honour of a legendary filmmaker and friend of the Mayfair Theatre, Herschell Gordon Lewis. “Smash Cut” a 2009 horror comedy (shot entirely in Ottawa) that pays tribute to films of Herschell Gordon Lewis. With Sasha Grey, Michael Berryman and Ottawa’s own Phil Caracas! Rated 14a, see http://mayfairtheatre.ca/movies/Smash-Cut/ .
Quote: In the summer of 2008, Mayfair programmer Lee Demarbre directed a cinematic tribute to Lewis’ bloody body of work, the horror comedy SMASH CUT. The film, written by Mayfair partner Ian Driscoll, is the story of a crazed filmmaker’s attempt to insert realism into his work by killing his enemies and using their body parts as believable gore in his movies. A climatic scene was shot at the Mayfair, and Herschell came to Ottawa to shoot a cameo that served as a throwback to the warnings that often preceded his films: “I implore you, ladies and gentleman, to never forget that filmmaking is a blood sport. Watch if you must, be remember, YOU WERE WARNED.” He was a master showman to the end.
