May 22, 2016

Last year weThe Film Geeks (FaceBook Page), in order to make a more perfect union of film lovers, made living in San Diego even better by screening 31 classic Universal monsters pictures at the Digital Gym Cinema. The year-long series, dubbed The Universal Suspects, was a smashing success adored by all who partook of the creature feature goodness.

Now we will bring the next generation of monster movies from across the pond! More blood! More bodices! More color! That’s right–Great Britain’s own Hammer Pictures continued the Gothic horror tradition with their own versions of movie monsters. Now we will bring a selection to San Diego all year long in 2016 as part of our new series:

 

GET HAMMERED!!

This Month’s Screening Synopsis:

In prison and awaiting execution, Dr. Victor Frankenstein recounts to a priest what led him to his current circumstance. He inherited his family’s wealth after the death of his mother when he was still only a young man. He hired Paul Krempe as his tutor and he immediately developed an interest in medical science. After several years, he and Krempe became equals and he developed an interest in the origins and nature of life. After successfully re-animating a dead dog, Victor sets about constructing a man using body parts he acquires for the purpose including the hands of a pianist and the brain of a renowned scholar. As Frankenstein’s excesses continue to grow, Krempe is not only repulsed by what his friend has done but is concerned for the safety of the beautiful Elizabeth, Victor’s cousin and fiancée who has come to live with them. His experiments lead to tragedy and his eventual demise.
