Film Screening: THE DEATH KISS
October 30 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Six months is a long time for a weekly community film series to be on hiatus from public visibility, holed up (as we’ve been) in a private residence with the occasional outdoor (backyard) show breaking up the cramped-space feel. But now we’re back, just in time for a seasonally spooky presentation and observance of the 90th anniversary of 1931’s “Dracula” to boot.
It jump-started the sound era’s horror-movie industry and to mark the occasion, we’ll be watching its 1932 follow-up “The Death Kiss,” an obscure but crackling good murder-mystery reuniting “Dracula’s” three male stars, Bela Lugosi, David Manners, and Edward Van Sloan. Again playing the heroic romantic lead, Manners shines beyond his “Dracula” performance with all the best lines this time, while the other two are intriguingly cast against type. A hugely enjoyable little film, exemplifying the adage that big things can indeed come in small packages.
Screening on classically reel-to-reel 16mm film at 7 pm Saturday, Oct. 30th at the Best Western (Plus), located at 446 Rt. 3 (next to 99 Restaurant) in uptown Plattsburgh.
Free, with donations welcome (free food as well). Please register your interest in attending either by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling/texting 518-802-1220.
