Grindhouse Double Feature at the RGT.

Borderlands Media in association with Visit Las Cruces invites you to relive the era of old-school B-movies at cut-rate prices with a home-grown Grindhouse double feature. Included in the presentation will be the explosive non-stop action of Knight Squad, written and directed by David Noble, and the fang-in-cheek vampire send-up Nunja: Vampire Hunter, written and directed by Autumn Gieb. Premiering at the Rio Grande Theatre in Las Cruces, Borderlands Media’s Grindhouse Double Feature of Knight Squad and Nunja: Vampire Hunter will have its audience debut on Tuesday, October 17, 2017.

Characterized by simulated film negative scratches and clipped dialog to recreate the feeling of well-worn, high-octane exploitation flicks of yesteryear, the Grindhouse genre has become a cult favorite amongst cinephiles who enjoy watching movies so bad they’re good. To celebrate this most basic of impulses, Borderlands Media has put together the first of what we hope will be many such presentations by hard-working independent filmmakers with a vision.

Produced by Stormfront Entertainment, Knight Squad is a martial arts chop-fest filmed entirely in Seoul, South Korea. Written and directed by David Noble, it follows a duo of crime fighting vigilantes who take justice into their own hands to fight Russian mobsters, North Korean spies and deadly mercenaries in an attempt to stop World War III.

Filmed entirely in Las Cruces and produced by Sierra Blanca Pictures, Nunja: Vampire Hunter is a stylized parody of Grindhouse features from the 70s, tracking a kick-boxing nun on a mission to rid the world of evil, one vampire at a time. Written and directed by Autumn Gieb, this low-budget epic utilized local crew and actors, including Indrani Rauth, Marissa Bond, William Zimmerman and Bobby Senecal.
