Here’s something spooky: the day Gizmodo got an email inviting us to debut the new trailer for Joshua Grannell’s 2010 horror-comedy cult classic All About Evil, I just so happened to be wearing my “Peaches Christ Is My Homegirl” sweatshirt — Peaches Christ being Grannell’s horror-loving drag alter ego. The movie gods aligned, and All About Evil, starring Russian Doll’s Natasha Lyonne, is a lot of fun, so without further ado, here’s that trailer!
This new trailer comes as the previously hard-to-track-down indie — starring Lyonne as a librarian turned theatre owner turned deranged splatter movie queen — is about to enjoy its highest profile in over a decade. On June 10, Severin Films is releasing a new HD restoration of All About Evil on Blu-ray, complete with new and archival special features, and will also co-present “gala resurrections of the film’s now-infamous ‘Peaches Christ 4-D Experience’ screenings” on June 9 at the Loz Feliz 3 in Los Angeles, and June 11 at the Victoria Theatre in San Francisco, which is where the movie itself was filmed.
For those uninitiated: Peaches Christ hosted a long-running cult movie series in San Francisco called “Midnight Mass,” and Grannell is a genre expert of the highest order. Both of the writer-director’s personas melded perfectly in the creation of this campy, witty, gruesome film — an energetic celebration of low-budget horror and exploitation movies of the past. It boasts a killer lead performance by Lyonne and a supporting cast that includes Peaches Christ herself, along with Elvira, Mistress of the Dark (a.k.a Cassandra Peterson), John Waters icon Mink Stole (Pink Flamingoes, Female Trouble, Desperate Living), Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’ Thomas Dekker, and Knives Out’s Noah Segan.
Severin Films also has some new key art for the film, which is too good not to share:
