Thrillville at the Roxie

The evening of July 22nd, 2010, marked the end of an era as "Will the Thrill" Viharo hosted the final event of the Thrillville film series which began back in 1997. Promoted as the "Centerpiece" of the 2010 Another Hole in the Head Film Film Festival, this event promised to be something special - and it truly was.

The festivities took place at the historic Roxie cinema in San Francisco and featured Mil Mascaras vs. the Aztec Mummy as the main event. There was music, lucha fans dressed as their favorite luchadores, and of course Will and his wife, Monica the Tiki goddess.

The extravaganza began with Jeffrey Uhlmann's short film, Susan's Big Day, followed by the main feature, and concluded with the second half of the Mil Mascaras double-bill, Academy of Doom - all three of which were produced at the University of Missouri in Columbia. Although the event stretched into the early morning, nearly everyone stayed to the end to wish a fond farewell to Thrillville and to mark the end of the spectacular international festival run for the two Mil Mascaras films.
