First show: November 18
Directed by Shawn “Clown” Crahan of SLIPKNOT!!!!
“Officer Downe is sleaze-pop, Art Deco ultra-violence dealt by one badass, shit-kicking sonofabitch.” – Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
Adapted from the 2010 genre-busting-cult-favorite graphic novel by Joe Casey and Chris Burnham, OFFICER DOWNE concocts a hyper-real Los Angeles for the story of a savage LA policeman, played by Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy) who is repeatedly resurrected and returned to active duty via dark science technology. When a rookie officer named Gable is recruited as back up, he discovers there’s much more to the titular super-cop than a mindless law enforcement drone warring against a twisted rouges gallery of over-the-top super-villains including Meadow Williams who stars as the Mother Superior to a never ending onslaught of machine toting nuns. This graphic novel adaptation oozes B-Movie absurdity through reckless decapitations, orgasm meters and a sci fi cop with an epic porn stache who carries a custom .85 Magnum dubbed “The Answer Man” and drives a car named “Moving Death.”
