for adult audience

In the past, Białystok has been invaded both on screen as well as in reality – by alien civilizations, by cannibal Christmas trees or by football hooligans. This time the ŻUBROFFKA flagship is embarking on yet another voyage and there is an intensive mixture of kitsch, humor and terror on board! This night’s entertainment will be a crazy ride and the healthiest combination of bloodbaths and absurdity ever seen on the wide screen!

The program includes: a possessed VHS tape threatening the lives of the video rental owner and the entire world; made in the climate of low-budget SF films from the 50’s story of a Latvian kidnapped by aliens (!); stars of a hit sitcom testing their family’s unity when bloodthirsty clones try to tear them apart during a live show; and a Finnish comedy horror about a woman fighting to survive among men who want to educate her on everything which all ends in a real Helsinki massacre! We find out that sex educators sometimes forget to consider all scenarios in which sex with an artificial sex doll can end; we will tell you how to (not) make a bad impression on the family of the girl you love who happen to be gathered around the bed of her dying grandfather; we will consider the difficult puberty of a girl who has been teased mercilessly for her acne and for which she seeks a particularly hideous manner of vengeance; we will learn the story of Doug who, while investigating the disappearance of his father, gets sucked into the world of VHS horror and, finally, we will see the world’s most intimate TV show about painting!
