HALLOWEEN BLACK SABBATH
VINCENT PRICE
MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH
(ROGER CORMAN, 1964) 7 ONLY
Roger Corman at has best! During the Black Plague, .Prince
Prospero (Vincent Price) tries to secure his castle from the out-
side world and the victims of Pestilence. Under the protection of
black magic, he entertains a select body of noble guests. The
revelers carouse amid the baronial splendor, entertained by
cruelly devised amusements unti the chilling end, when Prospero
confronts the messenger of the Red Death! Nicholas Roeg pho-
tographed this adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's Tale in Sumptuous
Colors, and his use of red foreshadows its use 10 years later in
his own Don't Look Now. Stars Vincent Price, Jane Asher, Hazel
Court and Patrick Magee.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
(ARTHUR LUBIN, 1943) 8:45 ONLY
This spectacularly produced remake of the Lon Chaney classic
won Academy Awards for Best Color Cinematography, Best Art
Direction and Best Interior Direction. A fading violinist in the
Paris Opera falls hopelessly in love with a young soprano and
murders all those who stand in the way of her career. Highlights
include an enormous chandelier crashing down on an opening-
night audience, not to mention the climactic chase through the
Catacombs of Paris. The fantatsic musical score-often matching
on-stage music to back-stage action-includes "The Porter
Song" from Von Flotow's Martha and operatic-choral arrange-
ments from symphonic and piano music by Tchaikovsky and
Chopin, plus an original "Folk Song" and piano concerto. Claude
Rains, Nelson Eddy, Suzanna Foster, Leo Carilla and Hume Cronyn.
THE TRIP
(ROGER CORMAN, 1967) 10:30
Peter Fod4' plays a worn-out director of TV commercials who is
in the middle of divorcing his wife (Susan Strasburg) when he
decides to "open his head up" with Bruce Dern as his guide!
The visuals are very stunning, the ftaliucination scenes are hilar-
iously camp, and Roger Corman, working from a script by Jack
Nicholson, tries to deal honestly with his mixed feelings about
acid. There are many "privileged moments" that will strike close
to home for anyone who's indulged before. With Dennis Hopper.
