A retrospective screening of SEX DEMON, J. C. Cricket's queer underground classic, along with the short film SYNONYMOUS WITH by Thom Hilton!
"All hell breaks loose when John’s last-minute anniversary gift inadvertently causes his younger lover Jim to become possessed by a SEX DEMON who wreaks havoc on New York's gay cruising spots. Openly inspired by both THE EXORCIST and its Blaxploitation cousin, ABBY, J. C. Cricket's SEX DEMON is a ferocious mix of the erotic and the grotesque that’s primed and ready to shock audiences again after being lost for the past forty years. In the words of Gay Scene critic Bruce King, “the squeamish may not want to watch, but if you do, you won’t forget it!”
Last screened theatrically in 1981 and never released on home video, SEX DEMON is a crucial—yet long-lost—piece of queer horror history that's been preserved in 2K from a recently discovered 16mm release print." — AGFA
