Between One Crazy Summer and Better Off Dead, it’s almost impossible not to pick the latter as the more satisfying of the two Savage Steve Holland and John Cusack collaborations. The ’80s comedies have both aged well, though. Neither film was a hit at the box-office, but time has been kind to them. Now, Holland wants to revisit some of the characters from One Crazy Summer in a sequel.

Nope. Not even three previews could come close to showcasing all the awesome stuff that’ll be at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles Friday night (yes, tonight) as Crazy 4 Cult 5: I’m Too Old For This Sh*t finally opens to the world. The show features work from over 100 artists interpreting a wide variety of cult films and, in this final (and biggest yet) preview for the show you’ll see Max Dalton‘s Monty Python and the Holy Grail inspired piece, Fight Club through the eyes of Joshua Budich, Brandon Schaefer‘s take on The Evil Dead and other art based on movies like Being John Malkovich, Buffalo 66, The Karate Kid, Mulholland Dr., A Clockwork Orange, The Hudsucker Proxy and more. There are over twenty new pieces below the jump.
This Friday, Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles will hold the fifth Crazy 4 Cult art show, an annual exhibition which I’ve called the super bowl of pop culture art. I am so jealous of all my fellow Los Angelans who are able to attend this week. I’ll be away in Texas, but I can’t complain as I’ll be bringing back my girlfriend with me (the big move, exciting). The great guys at G1988 have given me a bunch of art from the show to premiere on the site.
After the jump you will find part one of our preview, which includes a new Back to the Future-inspired piece by the great Eric Tan, Monster Squad and Better Off Dead pieces by /Film favorite Dave Perillo, an incredibly multi-level Scott Pilgrim vs. The World piece by Jim Horwat, Alex Pardee‘s tribute to a new cult classic, Rubber, and more. So what are you waiting for?
