CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE (1976, Full Widescreen, 35mm) Jack Elam, Dub Taylor, Dennis Fimple, John David Carson. One of the best drive-in movies of the ‘70s. Two college kids come to a backwater town doing research on a “bigfoot” creature that’s known to inhabit a nearby swamp. Before long they’re caught up in a series of chilling events, culminating with a head-to-head confrontation with the terrifying creature. Taylor and Elam are terrific in supporting roles. Fimple and Carson steal the show as boisterous college kids who bite off more than they can chew. Witty dialogue, a chilling climax, and a fine music score. Nice color, 35mm.
DEVIL KISS (1975, Full Widescreen) Silvia Solar, Olivier Othot, Jose Nieto, Evelyne Scott. A great Euro-horror thriller about a psychic countess and mad scientist who conduct occult research in the castle of Count Victor. Working from the cellar with a twisted dwarf, the two of them re-animate a corpse and command it to commit murder. This is a lovably schlocky film that’s lots of fun. Rated R, nudity and violence. Color, 35mm.
