HorrorFest Movie Day
Oct 31 @ 6:00 am – 11:45 pm

Tune in for an ALL DAY HorrorFest.  Comcast ch11, Suddenlink ch16, streaming to NevadaCountyTV.org

We will be playing the following films.

The Atomic Brain is a 1963 horror film directed by Joseph V. Mascelli. An elderly woman uses her vast fortune to convince an eccentric yet brilliant scientist to transplant her brain into a new, youthful body. The bodies are provided by three immigrant young women who are hired to be servants. The old woman then chooses which of the girls she finds to be the most beautiful, and sets about replacing the young woman’s brain with her own.

The Little Shop of Horrors is a 1960 American comedy film directed by Roger Corman. The film is a farce about an inadequate florist’s assistant who cultivates a plant that feeds on human flesh and blood. The film’s concept is thought to be based on a 1932 story called “Green Thoughts”, about a man-eating plant. However, it is thought that it may have been influenced by Arthur C. Clarke’s sci-fi short story from 1956, “The Reluctant Orchid” (which was in turn inspired by the 1905 H. G. Wells story “The Flowering of the Strange Orchid”. Mythology about man-eating plants dates back to at least the 1800s, and probably much earlier.

The Wasp Woman is a 1959 American black-and-white science fiction horror film, produced and directed by Roger Corman (who also has a cameo role in the film, playing a doctor). A scientist, Dr. Eric Zinthrop, is fired from his job at a honey farm for experimenting with wasps.

White Zombie is a 1932 American pre-Code horror film independently produced by Edward Halperin and directed by Victor Halperin. The screenplay by Garnett Weston, based on The Magic Island, is about a young woman’s transformation into a zombie at the hands of an evil voodoo master. Bela Lugosi stars as the zombie master “Murder” Legendre, with Madge Bellamy appearing as his victim. Large portions of White Zombie were shot on the Universal Studios lot, borrowing many props and scenery from other horror films of the era. The film opened in New York to negative reception, with reviewers criticizing the film’s over-the-top story and weak acting. While the film made a substantial financial profit as an independent feature, it proved less popular than other horror films of the time. White Zombie is considered the first feature-length zombie film.

The Magic Shop is a 1964 Alfred Hitchcock film and was the last episode of the Hitchcock series to be written by John Collier, and it was the only one that was an hour long. The story upon which it is based was written by H. G. Wells and was first published in the June 1903 issue of The Strand magazine, the popular British periodical where Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories appeared. The story is narrated by an unnamed London man who states that he “had seen the Magic Shop from afar several times” but had never gone in until his son Gip pulled him toward it and they had to enter. Its location was never clear: “nearer the Circus, or around the corner in Oxford Street, or even in Holburn.” The boy, Gip, is well-behaved, having inherited “his mother’s breeding, and he did not propose to enter the shop or worry in any way.” Enter it they do, however, and they meet the shopman, “a curious, sallow, dark man, with one ear larger than the other” and with “long, magic fingers.” The establishment is called the “Genuine Magic Shop” and the shopman remarks that Gip is the “Right Sort of Boy,” in contrast to another, badly-behaved boy to whom the shop’s door is locked.

Carnival of Souls is a 1962 American independent horror film written, produced, and directed by Herk Harvey, and starring Candace Hilligoss. Its plot follows Mary Henry, a young woman whose life is disturbed after a car accident. She relocates to a new city, where she finds herself unable to assimilate with the locals and becomes drawn to the pavilion of an abandoned carnival. Director Harvey also appears in the film as a ghoulish stranger who stalks her throughout. Filmed in Lawrence, Kansas and Salt Lake City, Carnival of Souls was shot on a budget of USD$33,000, and Harvey employed various guerrilla filmmaking techniques to finish the production. It was Harvey’s only feature film and did not gain widespread attention when originally released as a double feature with The Devil’s Messenger in 1962.

Black Friday is a 1940 American science fiction film starring Boris Karloff. Béla Lugosi, although second-billed, has only a small part in the film and does not appear with Karloff. Black Friday was written by Curt Siodmak. The famous Dr. Ernest Sovac’s best friend, bookish college professor George Kingsley, is run down while crossing a street. In order to save his friend’s life, Sovac implants part of another man’s brain into the professor’s. Unfortunately, the other man was a gangster who was involved in the accident. The professor recovers but at times behaves like the gangster and his whole personality changes. Sovac is horrified but also intrigued, because the gangster has hidden $500,000 somewhere in the city. The doctor continues to treat his friend and, when the professor is under the influence of the gangster’s brain, Sovac attempts to have the man lead him to the fortune. Béla Lugosi plays a gangster also trying to get his hands on the cash.

The Lodger is a 1944 horror film about Jack the Ripper, based on the novel of the same name by Marie Belloc Lowndes. It stars Merle Oberon, George Sandersand Laird Cregar, features Sir Cedric Hardwicke and was directed by John Brahm from a screenplay by Barré Lyndon. Slade, a serial killer, is a lodger in a 19th-century family’s London home. So is a singer, Kitty Langley, who definitely has caught Slade’s eye. Women are being brutally killed in the Whitechapel district. Scotland Yard is investigating and a detective, John Warwick, begins to cast his suspicions in Slade’s direction. Kitty, meanwhile, has also developed an attraction to Slade. Slade goes to see her perform at a cabaret. He goes backstage afterward and tries to make her his next victim, but Warwick’s men get there just in time. Unwilling to be taken into police custody, Slade flees to the riverbank and leaps to his death.

The Return of Dracula (a.k.a. Curse of Dracula on US television and The Fantastic Disappearing Man in the UK) is a 1958 horror film starring Francis Ledereras Count Dracula. The female lead, Rachel Mayberry, was played by Norma Eberhardt. It was filmed in black and white (with a brief color shot of blood) and was directed by Paul Landres. It was released in 1958 as a double feature with The Flame Barrier.  The film is set in Carleton, a small town in 1950s California, where Count Dracula arrives, having killed and assumed the identity of an artist named Bellac Gordal (Norbert Schiller) who has traveled from Europe to visit his cousin, Cora Mayberry (Greta Granstedt). The story revolves around his interaction with Cora’s daughter, Rachel (Eberhardt).

The Devil’s Ticket is a Boris Karloff thriller was filmed in 1961. An artist “pawns” his soul to the devil and must retrieve it by painting a portrait of another person whose soul will be exchanged for his.

Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 American independent horror film written, directed, photographed and edited by George A. Romero, co-written by John Russo, and starring Duane Jones and Judith O’Dea. The story follows seven people who are trapped in a rural farmhouse in western Pennsylvania, which is besieged by a large and growing group of “living dead” monsters. The film was completed on a $114,000 budget and shot outside Pittsburgh, where it had its theatrical premiere on October 1, 1968. The film grossed $12 million domestically and $18 million internationally, earning over 250 times its budget. Night of the Living Dead has been regarded as a cult classic by film scholars and critics, despite its being heavily criticized upon its release for its explicit gore. It eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry, as a film deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.

Nosferatu, eine Symphonie des Grauens (translated as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror; or simply Nosferatu) is a 1922 German Expressionist horror film, directed by F. W. Murnau, starring Max Schreck as the vampire Count Orlok. The film, shot in 1921 and released in 1922, was an unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Various names and other details were changed from the novel: for instance, “vampire” became “Nosferatu” and “Count Dracula” became “Count Orlok”. Stoker’s heirs sued over the adaptation, and a court ruling ordered that all copies of the film be destroyed. However, a few prints of Nosferatu survived, and the film came to be regarded as an influential masterpiece of cinema. The film was released in the United States on 3 June 1929, seven years after its original premiere in Germany.

The Premature Burial is a 1962 American International Pictures horror film, directed by Roger Corman based upon the 1844 short story of the same name by Edgar Allan Poe. It was the third in the series of eight Poe-themed pictures, known informally as the “Poe Cycle”, directed by Corman for American International.  Set in the early dark Victorian era, the film follows Guy Carrell, a British aristocrat who is consumed with the fear of being buried alive. His fear becomes so overwhelming, it nearly prevents him from marrying his fiancee Emily. He tells her that he, like his father, suffers from a cataleptic disease which can make one appear to be dead. Guy then takes Emily down to the family catacomb and claims that when he was a boy, he heard his father scream from his tomb after being interred, even though his sister insists it was all in his mind. But despite all this, Emily tells Guy that she still wants to marry him.

Whistle and I’ll Come to You filmed in 1968 is a story that tells the tale of an introverted academic who happens upon a strange whistle while exploring a Knights Templar cemetery on the East Anglian coast. When blown, the whistle unleashes a supernatural force that terrorizes its discoverer. The story was first published in 1904 in Ghost Stories of an Antiquary, the first collection of ghost stories that James published based on tales he had written as Christmas entertainments for audiences of friends and selected students at Eton and King’s College, Cambridge, where he was provost.

Diary of a Madman is a 1963 American horror film starring Vincent Price, Nancy Kovack, and Chris Warfield. The screenplay, written by producer Robert Kent, is an adaptation of Guy de Maupassant’s two short stories “Le Horla” (“The Horla”), written in 1887, and “Un fou” (“The Diary of a Madman”), written in 1885. Kent’s rendition is notably divergent from the source material, especially in relation to the religious and moral themes of the film, which contradict not only those of the short story but de Maupassant’s as well. The distinctive manner in which the Horla in the story lives on water and milk is dispensed with in the movie. Following the funeral of Simon Cordier (Vincent Price), a French magistrate and amateur sculptor, his secret diary is read out by Simon’s pastor friend to a group of people gathered around the table, Simon’s servants, and a police captain. The diary reveals that Simon has come into contact with a malevolent entity. The invisible yet corporeal being called a horla is capable of limited psychokinesis and complete mind control. It implied that Cordier’s particular horla is one of a whole race of evil beings which devote themselves to driving humans insane.

A Bucket of Blood is a 1959 American comedy horror film directed by Roger Corman. It starred Dick Miller and was set in beatnik culture. The film, produced on a $50,000 budget, was shot in five days and shares many of the low-budget filmmaking aesthetics commonly associated with Corman’s work. Written by Charles B. Griffith, the film is a dark comic satire about a dimwitted, impressionable young busboy at a Bohemian café who is acclaimed as a brilliant sculptor when he accidentally kills his landlady’s cat and covers its body in clay to hide the evidence. When he is pressured to create similar work, he becomes murderous. One night after hearing the words of Maxwell H. Brock (Julian Burton), a poet who performs at The Yellow Door cafe, the dimwitted, impressionable, busboy Walter Paisley (Dick Miller) returns home to attempt to create a sculpture of the face of the hostess Carla (Barboura Morris). He stops when he hears the meowing of Frankie, the cat owned by his inquisitive landlady, Mrs. Surchart (Myrtle Vail), who has somehow gotten himself stuck in Walter’s wall. Walter attempts to get Frankie out using a knife, but accidentally kills the cat when he sticks the knife into his wall. Instead of giving Frankie a proper burial, Walter covers the cat in clay, leaving the knife stuck in it.

House on Haunted Hill is a 1959 American horror film directed by William Castle. The film was written by Robb White and stars Vincent Price and Carol Ohmartas eccentric millionaire Frederick Loren and his wife Annabelle, who have invited five people to the house for a “haunted house” party. Whoever stays in the house for one night will earn $10,000. As the night progresses, the guests are trapped within the house, and with an assortment of terrors.  Eccentric millionaire Frederick Loren (Vincent Price) invites five people to a party he is throwing for his fourth wife Annabelle (Carol Ohmart) in an allegedly haunted house he has rented, promising to give each $10,000 with the stipulation that they stay the entire night in the house after the doors are locked at midnight. The guests are test pilot Lance Schroeder (Richard Long), newspaper columnist Ruth Bridges (Julie Mitchum), psychiatrist Dr. David Trent (Alan Marshal) who specializes in hysteria, Nora Manning (Carolyn Craig) who works for one of Loren’s companies, and the house’s owner Watson Pritchard (Elisha Cook). All are strangers to both the Lorens and each other, with their only commonality a desperate need for money.
