“Hey Monster, Hands Off My City”
January 16 only
Q&A with Michael Meehan, Johnny Steele and Reggie Steele!
This Fellini-inspired Comedy Film, written and directed by Michael Meehan, features a large comic cast, and stars SF Comedians JOHNNY STEELE and REGGIE STEELE as SFPD homicide detectives , who find half eaten bodies turning up all over San Francisco.
The Monster, (Jorge Scott) , pursued by a mute gunman on a unicycle ( Meehan), causes panic in the city, but well armed seniors, ( Valerie Meehan, Roberta Borgonovo, Pat Hunter, Jeannie McMillan ) lock and load to nail this menace.
The mayor,( Kevin Meaney) and the police chief( Michael Pritchard) don’t seem too concerned, as they’ve been paid off by nefarious Krazy Kola executives, ( Dan Spencer & James Svatko) , and aided by murderous fixer Nakamura ( James Van Harper), who are marketing a dangerous new beverage that causes people to “sell their eyes for it”.
13 year old Urban Ranger,( James Schmalz) sent out by his troop leader,(Christopher Meehan) to get his “Golden Scat” badge, finds and befriends the Monster after he is wounded by the mute hunter. The hunter is then distracted by the luscious acrobat( Dwoira Galilea), who questions his motives.
James is warned by prophet of doom ( Reed Kirk Rahlman) of the coming apocalypse, but amid the lunacy of the city, it’s just one more thing including an incarcerated soprano (Maryam Mahvi)who pines for fired Krazy Kola employee Loobey ( Conor Hamill)
As Steele and Steele wind through clues, kooks and snitches, they track down the monster, James, and the Hunter for a final showdown , the answers don’t get easier.
