Stingray Sam

Movies on a Big Screen at The Guild Theater
2828 35th St, Sacramento
7:30 PM
Admission: $5.00

Cory McAbee's follow-up to the cult favorite, "The American Astronaut!" An all new scifi musical western!!

A serialized film in six episodes. The official synopsis: "A dangerous mission reunites Stingray Sam with his long lost accomplice, The Quasar Kid. Follow these two space-convicts as they earn their freedom in exchange for the rescue of a young girl who is being held captive by the genetically designed figurehead of a very wealthy planet." Of course, that doesn't take into account the pregnant men. Or the corporate mascot rehab program. Or the tiny robot. Or the amazing music by McAbee's band, American Astronaut (formerly, Billy Nayer Show). Starring Cory McAbee as Stingray Sam and featuring David Hyde Pierce (TV's "Frasier) as The Narrator, and McAbee's 5 year old daughter, Willa Vy McAbee.

"'Stingray Sam' leaves one begging for more... think 'The Searchers' meets 'Eraserhead.'" - Variety

"Few films have me chuckling from beginning till end, but this one managed to do it. Well, except when I was laughing. Don't be deceived by its cheap looks or stunning black-and-white-o-vision, Cory McAbee put more creativity and wit in his film than I've seen in ten movies twice its length and a hundred times its budget." - Twitch Film

"[Stingray Sam is] cool. It's committed to its style. It's self-aware without being self-assured. It's a film you want to bring your new love interest too, because it'll show him or her that you feel comfortable having your postmodernism smothered in hilariousness. It'll prove to this new love in your life that not only can the avant-garde disturb filmic
conventions, but also be kind-hearted and sweet, subversive yet caring and generous. This is not, however, some "Ice Storm" or "Squid and the Whale" coming-of-age whinery, this is the wild galactic frickin' West. Bring your gun. Bring your dancin' boots." -
