THE BAD SEED (1956)

Director Mervyn Leroy’s horror-thriller classic features an amazing performance by 9-year old Patty McCormack as sweet, innocent Rhoda Penmark. The end title card says it all: You have just seen a motion picture whose theme dares to be startlingly different. May we ask that you do not divulge the unusual climax of the story. Thank you.

#DriveInMob Sinks Its Teeth Into VAMPIRE DOLL

8/21/14

Drive-In Mob Sinks Its Teeth Into VAMPIRE DOLL!

8:00 pm EST
Vampire Doll (1970)

aka Fear of the Ghost House: Bloodsucking Doll
The first of the three “Bloodthirsty Trilogy” vampire movies produced by Toho in the early 70s (LAKE OF DRACULA and EVIL OF DRACULA followed, all directed by Michio Yamamoto), this creepy movie owes more to Western influences like the Hammer films and Dark Shadows than any Asian vampire lore. Yukiko Kobayashi from Destroy All Monsters has a chilling look as the title character. A very effective horror thriller! (Warning – an animal DOES get harmed in this movie.)

#driveinmob Drops Acid with SKIDOO!

Skidoo (1968)

Otto Preminger’s infamous 1968 box office bomb has an incredible cast – Jackie Gleason, Carol Channing, Mickey Rooney, Groucho Marx (his last film!), Frankie Avalon, Frank Gorshin, Cesar Romero, Burgess Meredith, John Phillip Law, Peter Lawford, Harry Nilsson, George Raft, Arnold Stang, Austin Pendleton, Slim Pickens, Robert Donner, Fred Clark, Michael Constantine and even Richard Kiel – and mixes the people you would least expect to see with hippies…with hippies. If you ever wanted to see Jackie Gleason on an acid trip, this is the film for you! A fun soundtrack by Harry Nilsson compliments the misguided insanity evidenced here.
