Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment

OR How Alice Fell Down the Rabbit Hole

“Brutallo.com”? Surprisingly, this Web site is NOT NSFW; it’s just freaking weird. They’re truly-madly-deeply obsessive cult-film buffs, who peddle wares such as Scopitones (the ’60s precursor to the music video), Russ Meyer sexploitation flicks, a Japanese kids’ cartoon called Kure Kure Takora (Gimme Gimme Octopus), and tonight’s program, Switched-On Grimm: Brutallo’s Fairytales, Re-Tuned. Brutallo operators Christine Metropoulos and Mr. Sloumberfugex have come up from Frisco to present stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen’s twisted take on Alice in Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, and . . . you get the picture. Or anyway, you might. With live musical accompaniment from Bay Area electronic musicians.
