It’s true, Joan Jett became mega-famous from the number-one hit "I Love Rock n Roll," but thats only part of the story. That fame intensified with the music video’s endless play on MTV, world tours and many hits to follow like "I Hate Myself for Loving You," but that staple of popularity can’t properly define a musician. Jett put her hard work in long before the fame, ripping it up onstage as the backbone of the hard-rock legends The Runaways, starting her record label out of the trunk of a car after being rejected by 23 labels, and influencing many musicians—both her cohort of punk rockers and generations of younger bands—with her no-bullshit style. Bad Reputation gives you a wild ride as Jett and her close friends tell you how it really was in the burgeoning ’70s punk scene and the rocky road to rock stardom decades on. Their interviews are laced with amazing archival footage. The theme is clear: Even though people tried to define Jett, she never compromised. She will kick your ass, and you’ll love her all the more for it.

“Certainly a good film that will entertain hardcore fans and those unfamiliar with Jett's music. Joan Jett truly is a remarkable human being.” - Anthony Ray Bench, Film Threat

Dir. Helene Cattet and Bruno Forzani - 2018 - 92m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - Belgium / France - In French with English subtitles - $8 general / $6 students

Belgian filmmakers Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani trade in the crushed velvet and creeping shadows of their giallo-worshiping first two films (Amer, The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears) for blistering sun, creaking leather and raining bullets in this glorious homage to 1970s Italian crime films. After stealing a truckload of gold bars, a gang of thieves absconds to the ruins of a remote village perched on the cliffs of the Mediterranean. Home to a reclusive yet hypersexual artist and her motley crew of family and admirers, it seems like a perfect hideout. But when two cops roll up on motorcycles to investigate, the hamlet erupts into a hallucinatory battlefield as both sides engage in an all-day, all-night firefight rife with double-crosses and dripping with blood. Based on a classic pulp novel by Jean-Patrick Manchette and featuring vintage music cues by Ennio Morricone, Let the Corpses Tan is a deliriously stylish, cinematic fever dream that will slamfire your senses like buckshot to the brain.

"Meticulously executed, obsessively stylized. You almost expect to see Dario Argento or Mario Bava’s name on the credits and for Morricone to have composed the music." – Allan Hunter, Screen International

"Beautiful, experimental and bold. One of the most exciting cinematic experiences I’ve had in quite some time. I couldn’t look away for fear of missing yet another thing I’d never witnessed before." – Evan Saathoff, Birth.Movies.Death.

"An exercise in fetishization, of both the human body and the visual medium that captures it. There’s a gleeful, twisted imagination at work here." – Vikram Murth, RogerEbert.com

"Cattet and Forzani might have made the quintessential midnight movie." – Marshall Shaffer, Slash Film

"Let the Corpses Tan might be the best 1970s Italian crime thriller never made." – Todd Gilchrist, Wizard World

"A fetishistic, ultra-violent exploitation flick that's all kinds of artistic and exciting. A stunning display of visual seduction and slaughter-first gunplay." – Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
