Drafthouse Films Presents... | The Cinefamily
3/16 - MIDNITE $12/free for members Fraizer Park: an alternate trailer trash dimension out of time and space. Within these county lines, a Dance-Dance-Revolution-inspired dystopian underground prevails — only, in this game, losing can be fatal. The dumpster lovechild of Mad Max, Idiocracy and Footloose, The FP weaves a harrowing tale of bros, hos, and fancy footwork. After the tragic “dirt nap” (i.e. death) of his beloved bro, JTRO thinks he’s out of the game for good — but when a turf war threatens to rip the town apart, it’s up to our hero to set **** straight once again in an ultimate montage-loving battle for vengeance, until only one man is left dancing. With an epic 1980s John Carpenter-meets-JPop soundtrack, gratuitous nudity, and a flurry of neon streetwear, this film is going to blow your brain, for reals. Cast/crew members in person
Dirs. Brandon & Jason Trost, 2011, HDCAM, 83 min.

Don’t Be a Chucklehead, Get to Know ‘The FP’ Urban Dictionary Then Bring That **** to Your Town | Film School Rejects
I had the glossary posted, but it had some words that could not be altered...click on the linkIf the title of Brian Salisbury’s SXSW 2011 review of The FP – ‘The FP’ Shakes Off the Suckas and Drops that Dope Absurdity in Ya Eye Holes! – is any indication, there’s some language in this film that is simply out of the realm of casual, polite conversation. It’s a hyper-real story about a relentless turf war in a dystopian future where everything is decided by dance battle, a place where brothers named BTRO and JTRO battle for honor.
Destined to be a cult hit, The FP is one of the lead films for the new Tugg service, which allows users to sign up at Tugg.com/TheFP and bring the film to their own local theater in conjunction with its limited release on March 16. Now you too can be the hero who brings such an ambitious, ridiculous, completely hilarious experience to your neighbors. They’ll probably thank you for it, unless they are Chuckleheads.
To celebrate the release, the folks over at Drafthouse Films, who bought the distribution rights to The FP right after it exploded out of the 2011 SXSW film festival, have sent over this Urban Dictionary for The FP, which explains some of the lingo behind this Knuckle Fluffin’ Whatchamacallit havin’ movie. As we always say, it’s important that you’re prepared. So check out the Urban Dictionary by The Brothers Trost and request The FP on Tugg. You owe it to yoself… yo.
Midnight shows @ cinefamily this weekend. Hope to see some of yez on Friday night.
Movie Review: The FP | Geeks of Doom
Wish I had read this review first. Yeah, it's kinda hacky and not really in a good way. It says here that it was expanded from a short...yeah, in screentime only. Kinda like the worst SNL flicks, a decent joke repeated to the point of dilution. There are a few bright spots, just not enough. Not clever enough or stupid enough to really make a mark and in the end it simply just...is. That's what happens when you TRY to create a cult movie. PASS.
