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:
This Month’s Screening Synopsis:
Bette Davis is an English nanny whose charge is a rude 10-year-old Joey, just discharged from a disturbed children’s home where he’d spent two years undergoing treatment for drowning his little sister in the bath. He returns to an unloving father, fragile mother, and doting nanny — whom he hates. Suspicion arises again when his mother is poisoned, and Joey continues to insist Nanny is responsible. Joey contends the nanny was responsible for his little sister’s death, and only the upstairs neighbour girl believes him.
There’s just something not quite right when Bette Davis stars as an English nanny. And is her 10 year-old charge an emotionally disturbed murderer or just an insolent brat?
