The story of how Mary Shelley came to write Frankenstein. With Sandra (Mrs. Peter Dr. Who Davison) Dickinson as Mary Shelley; Lanny Baugniet as Percy Bysshe Shelley; and Caroline (Mrs. Stuart Re-Animator Gordon) Purdy as Augusta Leigh.
Before there was Gothic there was Bysshe.  A truly lost film. A ridiculously lost film.

Wednesday, July 30
"The Period" (2007)
Directed by J. Douglas Smith
A menstrual horror comedy. Imagine it was that time of the month for the rest of your life. Sharrie Heiman has just such a never-ceasing projectile period. This is a film that deals, like Kafkas work, with a loss of controlin a pretty explicit way, so it isnt for the sensitive. But it is also one of the best independent films of the past few years, so it should be seen by everyone regardless of their sensitivities. Complimentary tampons at the door.

Coming in August!

August 6th
Michael Reeve's THE SORCERERS (1967)
He turns them on...he turns them off...to live...love...die or KILL!

The great hypnotist Professor Montserrat (Boris Karloff) has developed a device to project his consciousness into the mind of another person to experience all of their sensory input. Jaded and bored with all the standard sex, drugs, and rock n' roll, Mike (Ian Ogilvy) is in the mood for something different. A match made in science fiction heaven!

Director, Michl Reeves only managed to finish three movies (this is the second) before dying of an accidental overdose of barbiturates and alcohol in 1969 at the age of 24. "Witchfinder General" starring Vincent Price was Reeves' masterpiece and swan song, but "The Sorcerers" is nothing to sneeze at, either. Gritty and quite modern, this picture will not be confused with anything that came out of Hammer Studios during that era.Reeves was not prone to comic relief or the Shakespearian theatrics that mar other efforts of that decade. It's dark and immediate. - Film Threat

Mike Bruce's THE LEGEND OF GOD'S GUN
A kick-ass, rock n roll spaghetti western  with mushroom sauce and style to burn!

A gun-slinging preacher returns to the debaucherous town of Playa Diablo to seek revenge on the notorious scorpion-venom drinking bandito, El Sobero. A confrontation of Biblical proportions will play out in the circle of death. This psychedelic indie-western is one of the most striking debuts in years. And we promised the director to play it loud.
