So the good people behind Dead Channels and Cosmic Hex also run The Vortex Room, and they're hosting a series of screenings all month leading up to Halloween. Doors at 9, movies at 10, sliding scale $5-10.
So last night I went to the first screening, the laughably god-awful 60's sci-fi craptacular, "Queen of Blood". Released in 1966 (but re-using the special effects scenes from a 1960 Russian film), it tells of the terrifying future of 1990 (to their credit, they totally nailed the cafeteria trays we'd use in the future--eerie!), when an alien vampire queen attacks and Basil Rathbone, John Saxon, and a really, really young Dennis Hopper have to save the world. It takes waaay too long for the Queen of Blood to actually do anything, and by that time I was waaaay to drunk to care.
In other words, I had a blast! Next week is James Brolin in "The Car", can't wait!
