Greeley Grindhouse Presents…

Invasion of the Bee Girls

It’s Greeley Grindhouse time! Mac Bell and Greeley are showing “Invasion of the Bee Girls” and you won’t want to miss this 1973 sci-fi film. Join us Thursday, June 26th, at 7:20 p.m.

Here’s the scoop:

Neil Agar, a special agent with the State Department’s Office of Security, is called to Peckham, California to investigate the death of John Grubowsky. Upon arrival Neil meets the laboratory’s head librarian, Julie Zorn, and then begins interviewing the firm’s leading scientists. But not long after he begins the investigation things take a turn with a growing number of deaths, and all of them men who died of congestive heart failure caused by sexual exhaustion.

Faced with a rapidly escalating body count, the local sheriff, Captain Peters, calls a town meeting in which the laboratory’s leading sex researcher, Henry Murger, urges the town to practice sexual abstinence. Needless to say the town wasn’t too excited with the idea.

After the town meeting, Neil and Julie arrange a time to meet with Murger to discuss his theories concerning the cause of deaths. But that meeting never occurred. Neil and Julie witnessed Murger chased down and run over by a car with an unseen driver. While investigating Murger’s home in search of clues, Neil discovers a secret room concealing sexual paraphernalia and Murger’s gay lover, Joe, who informs Neil that he saw Murger driving off with an unknown woman prior to his death.

Neil continues his investigation and is met with constant twists and turns. So how does he solve the murders? Who’s good and who’s not? Join us and see how the story unfolds.

Invasion of the Bee Girls was titled the Graveyard Tramps in the UK version. This was the first film venture for writer Nicholas Meyer. It was directed by Denis Sanders and starred William Smith, Anitra Ford and Victoria Vetri. Meyer almost didn’t put his name to the project after he saw it, but was later convinced by his manager.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Greeley Grindhouse Presents…

The brainOh yes, it’s that time again…Mac Bell is hosting Greeley Grindhouse and presenting “The Brain That Wouldn’t Die”! This horror film was produced in 1962.

Here’s the scoop:

A scientist, Dr. Bill Cortner, (played by Jason Evers) performs medical experiments in his basement laboratory including bringing his fiancé back from the dead after a horrible car accident that decapitates her. Bill’s main area of interest and what he considers his expertise, is transplantation mixed in with a bit of electric shock to restore life to the recently deceased.

When Bill causes a car crash that decapitates his fiancée, Jan Compton, (played by Virginia Leith) he rushes her head off to his laboratory and keeps it alive with an experimental new serum. However, he needs a body for her so he begins searching  the dives, strip clubs, and suburban streets for an attractive woman whose body he can steal to restore Jan. But, Jan isn’t excited about that idea and begins to hate Bill for not allowing her to die. Developing telepathic powers that allow her to communicate with one of Bill’s failed experiments that turned into a monster, she begins to plot her revenge.

Finally, Bill has the perfect candidate for bringing Jan back to her full potential, figure model Doris Powell. However, Bill has quite a surprise in store when he returns to the lab and finds there is a woman scorned waiting for him!

The promotional tagline for The Brain That Wouldn’t Die was “Alive…
without a body…fed by an unspeakable horror from hell!” The film helped provide the inspiration for ’80s horror/comedy director Frank Henenlotter’s Frankenhooker and Basket Case 2.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!

Greeley Grindhouse Presents…

Night of the LepusIt’s time for the Greeley Grindhouse and this month Mac Bell presents Night of the Lepus. This isn’t a bunny foo foo movie, this rabbit is a true killer. Night of the Lepus, also known as Rabbits, is a 1972 American science fiction horror film based on the 1964 science fiction novel “The Year of the Angry Rabbit.”

Rancher Cole Hillman, played by Rory Calhoun, seeks the help of college president Elgin Clark and DeForest Kelley to combat thousands of rabbits that have taken over the area after the coyotes were all killed.  Elgin asks for the assistance of researchers Roy, Stuart Whitman, Gerry Bennett and Janet Leigh in order to find another way to rid the town of the rabbits other than cyanide. Roy suggests using hormones that will disrupt their breeding cycle instead. After everyone agrees, Roy takes a few rabbits to begin experimenting on. After injecting one of the rabbits, Amanda, Melanie Fullerton, falls in love with it and she switches it with one from the control group. Not long after Amanda takes it home, the rabbit escapes.

Large animal tracks begin appearing near the rabbit’s burrows and not long after people are missing and turn up mutilated all over town. Elgin, the Bennett’s, Cole and Cole’s two ranch hands, Frank and Jud, go to the mine in order to get some explosives to kill the rabbits. Just as Elgin and Cole light the explosives, Roy and Frank enter the shaft to get pictures; and a rabbit appears out of the burrow and attacks Jud. However, Roy and Frank make it out and escape the rabbits in the mine as the explosives are detonated.

But, there’s bad news, the explosives don’t kill the rabbits, but the rabbits are pissed and seek revenge!

Don’t miss this epic battle of man vs. bunny! The fun begins Thursday, April 17th at 7:20 p.m.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
