“Diabolique” (1955)

THURSDAY, OCTOBER  19 @ 7:30 p.m.

Diabolique [Les Diaboliques] (United MPO, 1955)

Part horror, part thriller this is the story of a woman and her husband’s mistress who plot to kill the man they have in common. At one time, Hitchcock wanted to film the story but Henri-Georges Clouzot beat him to it. This film ended up serving as the inspiration for Psycho. Black & white, 117 minutes.  French with subtitles.

Vampire Lovers (Hammer, 1970)

Hammer horror films, low on budget but high on gore, are favorites of scary movie lovers. This one starring Peter Cushing has become a cult classic and is sure to provide opportunity for more than enough screams. Rated R. Color, 91 minutes.
