SAN FRANCISCO, CA May Day! May Day! Six weeks of cinematic pseudo-sincerity! This May Day comes Attack of the Killer B-Movies. A trio of deadly B-movies at their biggest, baddest and most brilliant! Horror classics The Birds, the Bad Seed and the Blob, are brought to life by an intrepid acting ensemble, and streamlined by SF playwright Sean Owens (Best Comic Playwright, SF Weekly). Two weekends eachand all three deftly handled by a fearless stable of actors. Another Dark Room classic, to be talked about for years to come!
Equal parts camp and cunning, each of these film classics exudes lurid excess, as well as astute insights on the taboos and terrors of its era, balancing the satiric with the sensational, the clich and the clever.
Beginning with the Hitchcock classic, THE BIRDS (May 1-10), this ominous tale of avian invasion ripples with undercurrents of feminism, as willful gadabout Melanie Daniels pursues a lovebird relationship with enterprising lawyer Mitch Brenner, while the quiet town of Bodega Bay takes notice. Its Mitchs mother, Lydia who rules the roostbut before feathers can fly, an aerial assault pits the hapless household against a squadron of starlings. Michelle Talgarow directs.
Next, Maxwell Andersons cult classic THE BAD SEED (May 15-24) finally gets the spanking it deserves. Pandemonium reigns as Christine Penmark, devoted wife and mother, gradually discovers the dark side of her insufferably sweet 10-year old daughter Rhoda. Christine grows more alarmed when little Claude, the winner of the schools coveted penmanship medal, tragically drowns and his medal mysteriously vanishes. Can a criminologist, a mystery writer and a Freud-fixated, nosy neighbor discover the moral decay festering behind little Rhodas radiant smile? Jim Fourniadis directs.
Finally, it takes a ragtag team of scofflaws to alert their sleepy town to the gelatinous dangers that a fallen meteor has unleashed. Brooding teen Steve Andrews interrupts a hot date with good girl Janie Johnson to chase the oozing, formless horror thats gobbling up the community in THE BLOB (May 29 - June 7). Sean Owens directs.
