And stick around this weekend for another 2-day theme--- that is, unless you have a thing about creepy killer clowns...
Speaking of skulls, I’ve had a few people email me asking about my Halloween mask from the “Cryptic Cadavers” series by PMG Halloween. It was purchased at one of the many local Johnnie Brock’s Dungeon stores here in St Louis MO for $20.00 ...though it is of course available online as well. Click HERE. And yes people, that was NOT my real face. Sorry!
Lost Skeleton Day in Los Angeles!
Sunday, November 9 - 5:00
THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA. 2004, Sony Repertory, 89 min. Dir. Larry Blamire. If you missed it before or just need a refresher, here's the original cult favorite! A gleefully deadpan recreation of those ultra-cheap '50s sci-fi horror movies, as a host of stereotypes descend upon Bronson Canyon in search of a meteorite containing a mysterious radioactive element. A rare chance to see one of the most quotable movies of recent years on the big screen. Plus Ub Iwerks' 1937 cartoon classic, SKELETON FROLICS.
Writer/Director/Star Larry Blamire will introduce the screening.
Sunday, November 9 - 7:30
Los Angeles Premiere!
THE LOST SKELETON RETURNS AGAIN. 2008, Bantam Street, 91 min. Dir. Larry Blamire. It's two years later, and the action shifts to the Amazon Jungle, as old friends and new enemies schlep into the dreaded Valley of the Monsters in search of yet another rare element. This bigger, better, bonier sequel moves up the budgetary scale from Ed Wood to Sam Katzman, containing some nifty special effects and a dynamic musical score--along with the expected hilarious performances and Blamire's trademark loopy dialogue. But you can still see the wires!
Discussion following with the cast and crew.
Tickets are available in advance at the Egyptian box office or through Fandango. The Egyptian is at 6712 Hollywood Blvd., 2 blocks east of Highland. For more info please visit: http://www.americancinematheque.com/
