Join us on Monday, September 30 for two films directed by Detroit-born great Roger Corman!
In A Bucket of Blood (1959), a dim-witted busboy (that guy Dick Miller) finds acclaim as an artist by presenting a plaster-covered dead cat that is mistaken for a skillful statuette. His desire for more praise from the beatnik set soon leads him to create an increasingly deadly series of works. A deceptively simple horror film/satire/black comedy.
The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) was loosely inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s 1842 short story of the same name. In sixteenth-century Spain, Englishman Francis Barnard (John Kerr) visits a forbidding castle to investigate the mysterious death of his sister Elizabeth (Barbara Steele). His brother-in-law Nicholas Medina (Vincent Price) and sister-in-law Catherine (Luana Anders) offer a vague explanation that Elizabeth died from a rare blood disorder six months earlier, but Nicholas is disturbingly evasive when Francis asks for specific details. Francis vows that he will not leave until he discovers the true circumstances surrounding his sister’s death.
