Witness if you dare, the world’s only underground kinky art porno horror film, complete with four men, three women and a gorilla. Ecstasy so great that all heaven and hell becomes just one big old Shangri-La! Director Curt McDowell and writer/actor George Kuchar created the exceptionally perverse and utterly brilliant Thundercrack!
With the initial setup of an atmospheric gothic horror tale — dark stormy night breakdown featuring a creepy old house on the hill — it quickly turns into a bawdy graphic and darkly comic orgy. Dead drunk, horny and delirious Marion Eaton commands the screen as one of cinema’s weirdest female characters while George Kuchar falls madly in love with a gorilla. Not recommended for those with tender sensibilities, Thundercrack! fully exposes itself with trash-noir lighting through which to peer at the pickles, the puke and the polymorphs.

A true cult classic that has shocked, excited and amazed audiences worldwide, this presentation of Thundercrack! is the first public screening of the film since 2003. This film will arouse,challenge and question you through every torrid moment of solo, gay, bisexual and straight couplings, voyeurism and more. You will be seduced into accepting this orgy of sexual liberation!
The most dialogue you will ever see in porn and the most porn you will ever see in a melodrama, Thundercrack! is a volatile marriage of genres, fluid sexuality and depraved perversion. — D.A. JOHNSTON
