Mystery Meat is a weekly secret screening program handpicked by a different Spectacle volunteer. Each week, follow the clues and see if you can discern what’s on the menu. Programming will range from bizarro science fiction jazz westerns and museum installations of grandparents eating fruit off of dead people, to a varied selection of lost television episodes about a kid in the woods with only a jetpack to survive. It could really be anything, but since it’s Spectacle, it’s probably the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen.

Directed by a slumming horror maestro and VERY loosely based on a short story from the King of noir adaptations, this made-for-TV thriller’s goofy premise alone is worth the price of entry. All hell breaks loose in a college town when a cursed Aztec cape makes its way into undergrad hands. A shy wallflower unwittingly sews it into a dress for a dance, turning all who wear it into violent murder machines. Featuring a belle of 90s oddball TV, a Spaghetti Western staple, and a multifaceted star pigeonholed by his most famous role.
SATURDAY, JULY 16 – 5:00 PM
