Portland's Grindhouse Film Festival rises once again for yet another monthly dip into the waters of b-movie exhibition.  This month's offering is the 1982 British, sci-fi horror flick Xtro from director Harry Bromley Davenport (Mockingbird Don't Sing).  What's it about?  Well, it all begins when young Tony sees his dad get hijacked by alien visitors.  Several years later, his pop reappears and then things truly begin to shift towards the unthinkable.

It all goes down tonight at the Hollywood Theatre at 7:30p.m.  Here's what the good folks at Grindhouse central have to say about tonight's feature:

On Tuesday November 27th at 7:30pm, the Grindhouse Film Festival presents the only known 35mm print of the batshit-crazy 80′s sci-fi/horror film Xtro! 

Xtro (1983) How to describe Xtro? A young boy witnesses his father being abducted by a light in the sky. Three years later, that light returns and plants a seed in the ground. That seed grows into a horrible creature. That creature impregnates a woman. That woman gives birth to a fully-formed version of the father, just as we last saw him. The father returns home and gives his son telekinetic powers. The son uses his telekinetic powers to make his toys come to life and do his bidding. And then things start to get WEIRD!


Xtro plays one-night-only at the Hollywood Theatre on Tuesday, November 27th at 7:30pm.  More info available here.
