Today is Movie Day at Capricon 36


Available now, exclusively at Capricon 36!

If you love movies, then you’ll love Capricon 36, the official launch event for my new book, THE BLACKENING OF FLESH. Today, while I’m signing copies of my new ghosts and gangsters novel, you can enjoy three can’t-miss genre movies: GALAXY QUEST, THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN, and EXPELLED FROM PARADISE.

In GALAXY QUEST, Tim Allen stars as the Shatner-esque actor who once played a captain on a sci-fi TV series in the vein of STAR TREK. When an alien culture calls on him and his former co-stars for aid in their struggles against a conquering world, it’s up to the crew of the Protector to play the roles they were born to play. GALAXY QUEST screens today from 5:30 to 7:15.

Terry Gilliam’s THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN is a 1988 fantasy comedy based on the exploits of Hieronymus Karl Friedrich von Münchhausen (1720-1797), first fictionalized by Rudolf Erich Raspe in his 1785 book BARON MUNCHAUSEN’S NARRATIVE OF HIS MARVELOUS TRAVELS AND CAMPAIGNS IN RUSSIA. THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN screens tonight from 7:15 to 9:15.

Animation fans will love EXPELLED FROM PARADISE, a film about humans who have abandoned their bodies to live as data in a virtual reality aboard DEVA, a space station orbiting Earth. When a hacker interferes their existence, two agents on the planet’s surface make it their mission to neutralize the threat. EXPELLED FROM PARADISE screens tonight from 9:15 to 11:00.

And tomorrow, the late, great David Bowie plays the Goblin King in LABYRINTH. Jennifer Connolly also stars Sarah, a teenager on a quest to find her kidnapped infant brother in a fantastic, wending world populated by creatures provided by the Jim Henson’s creature workshop. LABYRINTH screens tomorrow afternoon from 4:30 to 6:00.

Come to Capricon 36 at the Westin North Shore Chicago, because it’s not just movies. There’s gaming, parties, and panels galore, and when you get a spare minute or two, check out the dealer room and pick up a signed copy of THE BLACKENING OF FLESH at the Post Mortem Press table.

Christian A. Larsen is the author of the novels LOSING TOUCH and THE BLACKENING OF FLESHnow available to order from Post Mortem Press.
