Hey NYC horror fans! Don't miss the premiere of Troma's FATHER'S DAY on February 10-11 that will have the director Astron-6 present and participating in a Q & A with Troma's very own Lloyd Kaufman.

From the Press Release:
February 2, 2012, New York, NY - Greetings from Tromaville! Lock up your fathers: Troma Entertainment is proud to announce the New York screenings of Father's Day at Sunshine Cinema on February 10 & 11 will now be attended by its creators, filmmaking collective Astron-6! Members Jeremy Gillespie, Steven Kostanski, Matt Kennedy and Conor Sweeney will be present for a Q & A session at the midnight premiere of Father's Day. The Q & A will be moderated by Father's Day producer, creator of The Toxic Avenger and President of Troma Entertainment, Lloyd Kaufman.

Sunshine Cinema is located at 143 East Houston Street, New York. Tickets are now on sale online at or from the box office.

History of Astron-6: On March 3, 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and to ensure that the handful of men who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world.
They succeeded.
Today, the Navy calls it Fighter Weapons School. The flyers call it: Astron-6.

The gritty, gruesome, grindhouse Father's Day follows that classic story we all grew up with: boy watches father murdered, boy grows into a vengeful one-eyed man, man teams up with a priest and a male prostitute to take down his father's killer. Varietycalls Father's Day "a gleefully tasteless quasi-grindhouse nasty that's funnier than most of the many such parodic cheesefests that have been created since, well, Grindhouse!"Ain't it Cool News adds "Father's Day is over the top, tasteless, senseless, and completely hilarious."  For more on Father's Day, including information on filmmakers Astron-6, and additional theatres where Father's Day will be presented,
