This spoof of heavy-metal culture (fitting seamlessly into our most metal year yet!) that also respects the vitality and pent-up passion behind it features a powerhouse supporting cast from the likes of Chris Farley, Chicago’s own Joe Mantegna, Michael McKean, Ernie Hudson, David Arquette, Judd Nelson, and so many more.
“AIRHEADS has always been a favorite of mine and was the most fun movie to make… ever!” says director Michael Lehmann (HEATHERS, HUDSON HAWK), who will proudly be there for our Closing Night screening. “Can’t wait to see all three Lone Rangers and Lemmy rock the big screen again. Turn it up!”

We’re beyond thrilled to bring Briggs to CFF for a rare Chicago appearance on June 18th to host a very special event, HOW REDNECKS SAVED HOLLYWOOD - a fast-and-furious two hours with America's drive-in movie critic where he dives into the history of rednecks in America, as told through the classics of both grindhouse and mainstream movies.
The cherry on top of our bonus festival announcement is a special promo trailer for our hotly anticipated world premiere of the coveted TAMMY AND THE T-REX ‘Gore-Cut’, giving you a sneak-peak at the carnage-to-come on June 17th at Music Box Theatre, months before a 4K restoration of the film, sourced from the camera negative, is being prepped for theatrical & BluRay release later this year! Parental Guidance definitely advised!
