Inside Denver's new neo-cult series Channel Z

When Lamberto Bava's splatter classic Demons screens this Saturday, January 25 at the Alamo Drafthouse, it isn't just a rare chance to see this obscure gem on the big screen. The film also marks the debut of Channel Z, Keith Garcia's new cult-film series that picks up where his excellent Watching Hour left off. Along with co-programmer Theresa Mercado, Garcia plans to use the series to bring lesser known but still fantastic underground films to a wider audience. We recently caught up with Garcia and Mercado to talk about what to expect from the series, how it came to be and how it will fit into the Denver film scene.
