Showgirls 2 @ Midnight Movie Madness
Did you know there’s a sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 trash classic / object of cult worship Showgirls? Sort of. Rena Reffel, who plays the ditzy stripper Penny in that film, got tired of waiting for somebody to make a sequel—so she went out and wrote, directed, edited, produced and starred in Showgirls 2: Penny’s From Heaven. It’s exactly as good as you think it is. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer. We’ll be screening it at Alibi Midnight Movie Madness this Friday and Saturday at 10:30 p.m. at Guild Cinema. See you there. Bonus points if you show up in stripper attire, by the way.
