ICFS Presents: Side Effects May Vary

Thursday, July 11, 2024

Presented by ICFS


-Legendary DIY director J.R. Bookwalter (“The Dead Next Door;” “Robot Ninja”)…
-“Side Effects May Vary” writer & star James L. Edwards….
-AND Co-star and Catskill’s own Sasha Graham!
-Plus the Q&A with all of the above will be moderated by DARRYL RABIDEAU (Carl & Darryl’s Top 5 Podcast)

This is Bookwalter’s 1st film in over 20 years and critics agree:
“It’s like he never stopped making movies.”
It’s “Magnificent on every level.”
It’s “everything I wanted it to be. It was hilarious, it was disgusting, it was exciting..”
It’s “totally indistinguishable from classic 80s genre fare… and I loved every second.”

And what did ICFS’s Paul Kazee write? “No lie. I experienced more joy watching this, than I did “Dune: Part 2.”

In addition to Bookwalter and Edwards, the cast includes Brinke Stevens (“Slumber Party Massacre;” “This is Spinal Tap”), Tina Krause (“My Last Best Friend;” “Sixteen Tongues”) and a voice cameo by Debbie Rochon (“Satan Hates You;” “Tromeo & Juliet”).


With the world gripped by a deadly pandemic, science denier Glenn Rollins turns to an experimental vaccine as treatment for a lingering sickness. Much to the surprise of his doctor, wife and friends, the remedy immediately fixes what ails him. But, as Glenn soon discovers, the only thing more fatal than the virus…is the cure!

NOTE: While supplies last, attendees will receive a FREE collectible promotional giveaway surgical mask featuring full-color artwork from the movie’s poster, plus a FREE mystery DVD from the Tempe archives! Plus, both Bookwalter, Edwards and Graham will stick around for a post-show Q&A.

Of course, as with other ICFS events, expect prizes, surprises, comfy sofas and a convenient bar.
