The Gentlemen Hecklers return to the Rio Theatre on Tuesday, October 25 with one of the 80s biggest and baddest (in a good way) sci-fi action horror thrillers (it really does have everything), PREDATOR. In John McTiernan‘s classic, Austrian Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as soldier of fortune Dutch, who is hired by the U.S. government to secretly rescue a group of politicians trapped in Guatemala. But when Dutch and his team, which includes weapons expert Blain (Jesse Ventura!) and CIA agent George (Carl Weathers!), land in Central America, something is, well… Wrong. After finding a string of dead bodies, the team intrepid commandos discover that the hunters have become the hunted.
Let The Gentlemen Hecklers provide you with their unique brand of live, hilarious commentary – for the best cheesy movies! Eric Fell, Patrick Maliha, and Shaun Stewart are Vancouver’s masters of movie riffing, making so-bad-they’re-good movies even better by talking you through them.

PREDATOR (John McTiernan, 1987 / 107 mins / 18A) Dutch and his group of commandos are hired by the CIA to rescue downed airmen from guerillas in a Central American jungle. The mission goes well but as they return they find that something is hunting them. Nearly invisible, it blends in with the forest, taking trophies from the bodies of its victims as it goes along. Occasionally seeing through its eyes, the audience sees it is an intelligent alien hunter, hunting them for sport, killing them off one at a time.
