All About Evil

With high-arching brows, a sharp tongue, and cakes of glittery makeup, legendary San Francisco drag queen Peaches Christ is touring with All About Evil, which also stars Natasha Lyonne, Mink Stole, and Elvira. During a recent chat with the writer-director (aka Joshua Grannell when out of costume, he explains, “All About Evil is my first feature film. It’s a black comedy set in the world of old horror films of the ’60s and ’70s. It’s about a woman going to any length to save her neighborhood movie theater. It’s not scary, but maybe a little bit gross.” How gross? “We’ve had a few walkouts exactly when they should be. There was one very verbal walkout where someone yelled, “This is disgusting!’ So that was great.” Note: Christ will appear before the screening with Sylvia O’Stayformore and the Bacon Strip Players.
