Hello,

I'm wondering if you any of you have booked the film "Antichrist". If so, how were the numbers?

Thanks!

I've been seeing it pop up in the strangest of places. Mainly arthouses, but a Bollywood Theater about 200 miles from me had it for a week. Also, I've seen it second-run screens alongside the blockbusters and family films!

Played it in Michigan in mid-December to zero biz. Have it coming in Kentucky next week (1/22). Am not particularly optimistic.

Did you play "Drag Me To Hell" or "Zack & Miri Make a Porno"? Curious as to what sort of complaints you've received....

The theatre owners on this site know their communities Bernie and know what will and will not offend. There are a lot more people in this country who would be offended by seeing "Antichrist" on a marquee than would be bothered by "Hell" or "Porno". I support Slap and his opposition to putting the title on his readerboard and your apparent attempt to belittle him is not going to endear you to the members here.

It certainly wasn't my intention to offend Slap. My question, in hindsight, could have been read in a couple different ways but I didn't mean to challenge his ethics or morals when it comes to booking. Slap has had great success so I have no reason to question how he runs his business. My interest in Antichrist stems from my broader interest in independent film, and whether or not the public will take a chance on tougher, experimental filmmaking. My feeling is that they should - but that's a different topic.

Sorry if I hurt any feelings.

I did play Zack and Miri it did ok...We never get complaints on any films we play ,as far as content... Just seems ANTICHRIST name was meant to shock. Just me... I play all crazy films.... I wish sometimes people would protest like the old days... Even Bruno did not get anyone to complain to us.
