DOUGLAS SLOCOMBE: FROM EALING TO INDIANA
Horror Triple Feature!
THE FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS / SCREAM OF FEAR / CIRCUS OF HORRORS
35 mm!

The Fearless Vampire Killers
1967, Warner Brothers, 108 min, Dir: Roman Polanski

Roman Polanski’s expertly balanced blend of humor and horror looks even better today than when it was released nearly 40 years ago. Phenomenal character actor Jack McGowran is perfectly cast as the ancient, screw-loose Professor Abronsius who, with his harebrained sidekick, Alfred (Polanski, doing double duty) is on the hunt for vampires in the snowy Carpathian mountains. Their pursuit shifts into high gear once Alfred’s admired-from-afar love interest, the inn-keeper’s daughter (Sharon Tate), is kidnapped by the undead Count von Krolock (Ferdy Mayne). With the beautiful, deeply rich color cinematography of Douglas Slocombe and a memorable score by brilliant Krzysztof Komeda.


35 mm!

SCREAM OF FEAR
1961, Sony Repertory, 81 min, Dir: Seth Holt

Director Seth Holt’s first Hammer Studios effort tracks wheelchair-bound Penny (Susan Strasberg), who returns to her family’s French Riviera estate after her mother’s untimely death. Handsome chauffeur Bob (Ronald Lewis) and sinister Dr. Gerrard (Christopher Lee) enter the mix, and someone seems bent on driving Penny over the edge into madness or, worse, death!


CIRCUS OF HORRORS
1960, 88 min, UK, Dir: Sidney Hayers

In this lurid British shocker, plastic surgeon Anton Diffring botches a job and flees for France, where he operates successfully on circus owner Donald Pleasence’s daughter. The doctor transforms several disfigured women into beauties to work as circus performers – but when any of them want to leave him, they suffer fatal accidents.
