Spike & Mike's Sick & Twisted Festival of Animation
18+ | Vinyl | 11:30 PM
Spike & Mike began screening horror films and movie classics in Riverside, California in the 1970s. After spending the summer of 1977 giving out flyers for the Fantastic Animation Festival, they decided to focus on presenting packages of animated films themselves.
In the 1990s, Spike and Mike showed work from animators such as Craig McCracken, Miles Thompson, Danny Antonucci, Dave Smith, Steve Fonti, Craig Kellman, Mike Judge and many more. Several films under Spike and Mike's Mellow Manor Productions were funded either partially or entirely from concept to completion (such us Mike Judge's first Beavis and Butthead films). Working beyond their initial projects, many of these artists have become prominent in the industry and independent creatives, commercial artists, painters, screenwriters, and designers. Several notables and their work have gone on to be nominated for or won Oscars, Emmys, Annie Awards, and other honors.
