Day twelve of the B&S About Movies April Movie Thon is about 4-1-2. Pittsburgh-made movies!

April 12: 412 Day — A movie about Pittsburgh (if you’re not from here that’s our area code). Or maybe one made here. Heck, just write about Striking Distance if you want.

All April long, we’ll have thirty themes as writing prompts. If you’d like to be part of it, you can just send us an article for that day to bandsaboutmovies@gmail.com or post it on your site and share it out with the hashtag #BSAprilMovieThon.

Here are some films that we can recommend to watch today:

Martin (1978): This movie is the best version of Pittsburgh, the truest, that has even been filmed. It’s also George Romero’s best movie.

Effects (1981): While not seen much when it was released, this is one of the most imaginative horror movies ever, not just one of the best movies made in Pittsburgh.

Sudden Death (1995): JCVD fought our hockey mascot, Iceberg. That’s all you need to know about this movie.

What are you watching?
