Lock up your cows, and grab your lasers because we are back-ack-ack with 1996's cult classic MARS ATTACKS! This super cheesy, utterly ridiculous movie by Tim Burton is a real whos who from 90s movie stardom, and our live preshow is some of Boston's favorite inhuman babes!

What is SLAUGHTERHOUSE MOVIE CLUB? It’s a series of live pre-show and movie combos brought to you by the twisted entertainment ghouls at the SLAUGHTERHOUSE SOCIETY – the same folks who brought you CAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, CABARET IN THE WOODS, A WET DREAM ON ELM STREET, BURLESQUE FINDS A WAY and BOOMSTICK. Expect drag, burlesque, real buttered popcorn, a great flick, and lots of excited yelling. Grab your tickets in advance or at the door, and remember- WE COME IN PEACE!
Synopsis: President James Dale (Nicholson) of the United States and his right-hand man, Jerry Ross (Short) discover that an army of Martian UFOs are hovering around the Earth, and everyone has a different response. Some, like Texan alcohol dealer Art Land (Nicholson) and slimy newsman Jason Stone (Fox), just want to make a profit out of it. Others, such as TV hostess Nathalie Lake (Parker), Land's spiritualist wife Barbara (Bening), and the Southern-like Norris family, are excited, and some, like Dale's wife, Marsha (Close), and daughter, Taffy (Portman), don't care. Richie Norris (Haas)is extremely unintelligent but is only respected by his insane grandmother, while his older brother Billy (Black) is favored for joining the army. General Decker (Steiger) doesn't trust the Martians and insist they fight, but General Casey (Winfield) & Professor Kessler (Brosnan) are more optimistic. The Martians appear to come in peace but suddenly begin to use their super-powerful and technologically advanced weapons to wipe out the population and great structures. Will anybody find a way to stop them or will they all die in the war with these short, big-brained aliens?
