Starring John Ahearn, Jack Smith, and many other downtown luminaries including but not limited to Jenny Holzer, Gary Indiana, and Richard Prince, The Trap Door was Beth & Scott B’s final feature shot on Super 8. Progenitors of the Cinema of Transgression, Scott and Beth B played a large part in the New York no-wave scene and punk filmmaking. The Trap Door, in particular, captures the spirit of the downtown scene in a demented Nietzschean parable. Poster includes stills from the film with tagline: "A naïve American boy in an inescapably
insane world."
