It’s a Punk Rock Spectacular with ‘ReAgitator,’ Screening Saturday at Anthology Film Archives

Film still from ReAgitator.

A mad scientist resurrects a beautiful aristocrat who rebels, joins a cult of the undead, and resurrects a giant monster to destroy the world. You know, just your typical rom-com zombie adventure horror parody.

That’s barely scratching the surface when describing ReAgitator: Revenge of the Parody, the latest film by 20-year-old indie filmmaker Dylan Mars Greenberg. Making films since she was a child, this is her sixth feature.

Greenberg has also directed music videos for James Chance and the Contortions, Mac Gollehon and Blondie keyboardist Matt Katz-Bohen’s solo project, Pastel Confession. (Full disclosure: if Dylan’s last name is familiar, that’s because she is related to this reporter.)

A surreal sendup of cult films from the past and present (and maybe the future), ReAgitator stars Schoolly D, Aurelio Voltaire, Alan Merrill (writer of “I Love Rock n’ Roll”), Howie Pyro (The Blessed, D Generation), Amanda Flowers and Troma Films’ head honcho Lloyd Kaufman.

The screening is at Anthology Film Archives this Saturday, July 1 from 6 – 9pm.
