DRIVE-IN COMBO #192 . (DVD item #DI-192D) ALIAS JOHN PRESTON (1956) Christopher Lee, Betta St. John, Alexander Knox, Sandra Dorne. Chris, tormented by bizarre, murderous dreams about a woman from his past, eventually transforms into a Jekyll and Hyde type with an urge to kill. Knox is the psychological counsellor who tries to help him figure things out. In spite of its bland title, this is a pretty well-made psycho-horror thriller with an ending that packs a good punch. St. John would work with Lee again in Horror Hotel. From 35mm. FRIGHT (1956) Eric Fleming, Nancy Malone, Dean Almquist. This eerie film had a most unusual premise: a lady thinks she’s the reincarnation of an ancient prince’s elicit lover. At the same time, a killer turns out to be the reincarnation of the prince. Fleming plays the smooth-talking doctor who tries to figure it all out—and solve some murders to boot! Cool premise is helped along by a good script and nice performances. 16mm.

(DVD item #DI-190D) THE HEADLESS EYES (1971) Bo Brundin, Ramon Gordon, Kelly Swartz, Mary Jane Early. A true drive-in classic. A down-on-his luck artist gets more than he bargained for in a failed robbery attempt—an eye gouged out with a spoon! With his eye hanging out and dangling by the nerve, he stumbles out, screaming in the night! He then goes nuts and turns to killing women and cutting their eyes out. Not exactly high art, but good, schlocky drive-in fun. Nice color, from 16mm. THE GHASTLY ONES (1968) Veronica Radburn, Maggie Rogers, Hal Borske, directed by Andy Milligan. Three couples end up spending the night in a creepy Victorian-style house in order to claim their inheritance. Sounds easy enough, but before long, they start dying horribly at the hand of a knife-and-pitchfork-wielding psycho who wants their inheritance. Hilariously gruesome! Watch for the live-rabbit eating scene. Color, 35mm.

(DVD item #DI-191D) DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS (1948) Maxwell Reed, Siobhan McKenna, Anne Crawford, Honor Blackman. McKenna is brilliant as an insane killer. Reed is a carnival boxer who falls under her spell and ends up hideously scarred from her jagged fingernails. Soon, young men turn up slain. This forgotten film is choked with gothic atmosphere and moments of true terror. McKenna’s face is unique, having the eyes of Agnes Moorehead and the mouth of Barbara Steele, reeking with seductive power. She lures men to their deaths like a spider. A superb psychological horror film. 16mm. THE MONKEY’S PAW (1948) Milton Rosmer, Megs Jenkins, Michael Harvey, Eric Micklewood. A man obtains a dead monkey’s magical paw. He is bestowed three wishes. His first wish is to be debt-free. The wish is granted, but the price is his son’s life. The next wish is for the son to be returned to life—but the price is truly horrible.

(DVD item #DI-03D) CREATURE FROM THE HAUNTED SEA (1961) Anthony Carbone, Betsy Jones Morland, Edward Wain. This is another of Roger Corman's horror comedies, inspired in part by TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT. A fake sea monster, blamed for many deaths, turns out to be real. Morland and Carbone are perfect in their roles (Betsy is as cute as a bug0. The final belching scene is hysterical. Much of the dialogue is wonderfully satirical and witty. Off-beat for sure, but great fun From 16mm. DEVIL’S PARTNER (1958) Edwin Nelson, Edgar Buchannon, Jean Allison, Richard Crane. A must-see for all fans of 50's horror. A strange man comes to claim his inheritance in a small desert town and brings along with him satanic rites, evil spells and death! He also has occasion to change himself into various wild animals when killing off his enemies! There are a lot of really cool supernatural scenes in this film, all done in a dilapidated old shack. A top “B” film, both chilling and atmospheric. 35mm. DRIVE-IN COMBO #65 . (DVD item #DI-65) WEREWOLF IN A GIRLS’ DORMITORY (1963) Barbara Lass, Carl Schell, Curt Lowens, Luciano Pigozzi, Maurice Marsac. A creepy, gothic tale about a snarling werewolf on the prowl in and around at a girls’ reform school. Suspicion falls upon a new teacher after a horrible, animallike slaying takes place. Is he really the murdering, supernatural beast? A little slow at times, but very atmospheric. The chase scene through the darkened forest is unforgettable. From a beautiful 35mm print. THE MAD EXECUTIONERS (1963) Hansjorg Felmy, Wolfgang Preiss, Chris Howland, Maria Perschy, Dieter Borsche. A secret society seems to be bumping off a large number of notorious criminals.

(DVD item #DI-92D) THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO STOPPED LIVING AND BECAME MIXED UP ZOMBIES (1963) Ray Stecker, Carolyn Brandt, Brett O'Hara. A musical monster movie! Ray’s a drifter who’s drawn to an eerie sideshow where he's hypnotized by a gypsy and turned into a murdering zombie. Hidden in cages are other zombies whose faces have been disfigured with acid by the gypsy and her hunchback. At the climax, the creatures break loose and go on a carnage. This is the film that made Ray Steckler a cult movie luminary. From 35mm. THE THRILL KILLERS (1965) Ray Steckler, Brick Bardo, Herb Robins, Liz Renay, Carolyn Brandt. A nail-biting story of a psycho who kills to satisfy his perverse hatred toward all people. Also on the loose is his loony tunes brother and his ax-wielding buddies. An aspiring actor and his wife are caught in the middle of their bloodthirsty insanity. The grueling chase scene with Carolyn Brandt is tops! A great, low budget shocker. From 35mm.
