New Cult Canon and Music Box Theatre present Death Wish 3 and Freaked, with Alex Winter

Chicago, the cinematic event of 2011 is almost here. And now there’s free beer to go along with it, too.

On April 20th, New Cult Canon returns to Music Box with a gloriously demented double bill of Death Wish 3 and Freaked, featuring special guest Alex Winter. Best known as Bill from Bill And Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Winter took an early bit part as one of the “creeps” who terrorize an urban neighborhood in Death Wish 3, but he enjoyed slightly more creative input on 1993’s Freaked, which he co-wrote and co-directed (with Tom Stern, one of his partners on MTV’s sketch comedy Idiot Box) and in which he also stars as our guide through a mutant freak farm.
