Episode 26: Bad Moon Rising 2: Werewolves Good, Bad & Ugly
After some ups and downs, we’ve (finally) been able to lock in a date for our very exciting July Fantasmo! Initially we were hoping to do it on Friday, July 13th, but fate (and Rocky Horror) intervened, so the new date is Saturday, July 21st! For some reason, as years past have made abundantly clear, we just can’t seem to make things happen on the first Fridays during the summer . . . go figure. The good news is that a) it’s going to be an amazing show, and b) the A/C will be under control this time (repairs have been made, and it is behaving : )
Speaking of the show, it’s going to be every bit the worthy successor to our Godzilla night! As stated previously, this one is the much anticipated sequel to our werewolf tribute from last June which featured Dog Soldiers and The Howling. This time around, we’ve upped the ante with another triple feature, with films that range from bona fide classics to outright schlock! Here’s our perfectly chosen lineup:
8:00 p.m.: An American Werewolf in London (Rated R)
10:00 p.m.: Bad Moon (Rated R)
12:00 a.m.: Silver Bullet (Rated R)
I’ll be blogging about these movies before the show rolls around, but suffice it to say it promises to be a rollercoaster. Where else can you see David Naughton, Michael Pare, Gary Busey, and Corey Haim grace the silver screen all in one evening?!? A roster like that is either a recipe for disaster, or the mark of pure genius. Rob and I like to think it’s the latter . . . see you on the 21st!
