Saturday 16th

The Lost World (silent) (1925, 68 mins)
The first film adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic novel about a land where prehistoric creatures still roam. Basically the original Jurassic Park!

The Killer Shrews (1959, 69 mins)
Is that….a dog wearing a rug? No, it’s a Killer Shrew! Definitely a killer shrew guys. Not a dog. Nope.

The Giant Gila Monster (1959, 71 mins)
Hot rod science fiction action featuring an actual Gila Monster! Keen eyed viewers might notice that the Gila Monster actor is maybe not as giant as director Ray Kellog would have you believe!

Little Shop of Horrors (1960, 72 mins)
A true cult classic! Although overshadowed by the more popular 80’s remake staring Rick Moranis, this original version is a blast! And features and early performance by Jack Nicholson.

 

Sunday 17th

The Ape (1940, 62 mins)

When Dr. Bernard Adrian (Boris Karloff) learns a vicious circus ape has broken out of its cage and is terrorising the towns folk, he hatches a plan to use the event for his mad scientist scheme!

Bride of the Gorilla (1951, 56 mins)
A young Raymond Burr (Ironside!!!) plays plantation manager Barney Chavez who falls victim to a strange voodoo curse that transforms him into a gorilla.

The Wasp Woman (1959, 72 mins)
B-Movie legend Roger Corman directs this cautionary tale of cosmetics queen Janice Starlin. When Janice develops a new product from wasp jelly she fails to anticipate the rather unfortunate sides effects.

Yongary, Monster From the Deep (1967, 77 mins)
Japan may have Godzilla but South Korea has….Yongary! When earthquakes hit central Korea we soon learn they’re the work of Yongary, a prehistoric gasoline-eating reptile that soon goes on a rampage through Seoul!
