MIDNITE MOVIE MAMACITA & ZACK ATTACK'S MELODRAMA DOUBLE DELIGHT
They have come to a house where secrets are kept....where the future is haunted by the past.....where the innocent live in the shadow of sin.....where a dark legacy awaits to destroy all who defy it.....it's the 80's Cult Classic FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC (1987) presented in 35mm at 8pm.
After her husband's death, Corinne (Victoria Tennant) takes the family - teenagers Chris (Jeb Stuart Adams) and Cathy (Kristy Swanson) and pre-adolescent twins Carrie (Lindsay Parker) and Cory (Ben Ganger) - and becomes golddigger deluxe, moving back to her parents' house, intent on getting reinstated into her father's will.
Kids aren't crazy about the arrangement after meeting their sadistic, bible-toting, taskmaster grandmother (Louise Fletcher, doing a lot with this one-dimensional role) and getting locked into a guest room, where they are informed they must stay until their grandfather dies, so Tennant can win his affections.
Where there's a will there's a way. Christina had the will and found the way. Followed by an ultra rare screening of the lost classic CHRISTINA (1974) starring "Valley of the Dolls" babe Barbara Perkins, this will also be presented in 35mm at 10pm!
Some movies are like sloppy crimesthey leave easy clues all around. In the case of this walleyed exercise in terror, we are presented with a down-at-the-heels aircraft designer (Peter Haskell) accosted by a regal beauty down at the local unemployment office. All pretense of reality having been thus jettisoned, the beauty (Barbara Parkins) offers an unconventional proposal. Over a fancy meal, she suggests that they marry for strictly business reasons. The Immigration Department is hassling herbeauty is no barrier when the Government sees its dutyand the only way she can stay in the country is as the wife of an American citizen. The designer accepts the proposal, persuaded by the offer of a $25,000 fee and frequent flashes of cleavage from the other side of the table. After that comes the familiar crescendo of scare scenes. Parkins evaporates, but the bewitched Haskell traces her to a secludedis there any other kindmansion, where he is promptly zapped. That is followed by a defenestration, a complicated underworld search and a huge conflagration.
The movie was made in Canada, although its only real scenery is provided by Parkins' planes and valleys. Haskell, a displaced person from television, wears a wardrobe apparently tailored to suit his origins. He looks like a living test pattern.
