Madman Screening and Q&A


Retro Picture Show presents a special ONE NIGHT ONLY screening of the 1982 cult classic slasher film MADMAN on Friday night, October 14th at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY.

Producer Gary Sales and Paul "Madman Marz" Ehlers will be on hand to discuss all things MADMAN.


You must not say his name above a whisper for he can be anywhere… anytime… and if he hears you, he’ll come for you. And when he comes for you, there’s no place on earth you can hide.

The story opens on a camp fire setting deep in the woods of a summer youth camp. The words are those of Old Max, the camp proprietor, telling a tale about a local farmer named “Marz”, who in a fit of maniacal rage, axe murdered his entire family and then escaped justice by disappearing into the woods never to be seen again.

Old Max reveals that what has been taken as folklore is indeed true and that these are the very woods where “Madman Marz” took refuge.

It is then that the mood is broken by Richie, a cocky young camper, who ridicules the tale and challenges Max’s story by scoffing and shouting aloud, “Madman Marz”. And as the words reverberate through the dark woods, the wheels of terror are set in motion. (US, 1982, 89 min, R, DCP, Dir. Joe Giannone)
