April is Mad Scientist Appreciation month and do we have some mad scientists for you. Lady Frankenstein and Ed Wood’s Bride of the Monster will not disappoint! The perfect double bill and all for the low, low price of $5. That’s right FIVE DOLLARS! And there will be trivia with prizes!
Doors (back performance space) open at 8 pm and the movies begin at 8:30 pm.
Lady Frankenstein (99 min) is a 1971 English-language Italian horror film directed by Mel Welles and written by cult writer Edward di Lorenzo. It stars Rosalba Neri (under the pseudonym Sara Bey), Joseph Cotten, Mickey Hargitay and Paul Müller.
Bride of the Monster (75 min) is a 1955 American science fiction horror film directed, written, and produced by Edward D. Wood Jr., and starring Bela Lugosi, along with Tor Johnson, Tony McCoy and Loretta King.
The film is considered to have Wood’s biggest budget ($70,000). Production commenced in 1953 but, due to further financial problems, was not completed until 1955.
A sequel, entitled Night of the Ghouls, was finished in 1959, but due to last-minute financial problems, was not released until 1984.
