Fantasmo Episode 57: Tales From the Vault of Amicus

Hey Superfans!

A BIG thanks to all of you who came out this past weekend to support our BIG Freeplay event! The day was a major hit and we hope to make this an annual occurrence. Also a HUGE(!) thanks to the gaming enthusiasts who provided the machines and made it all possible: Matt Crainer, Mike Barnett, Ethan O'Toole, and Derek Williams. Here's looking forward to Freeplay 2011!

In the realm of things coming soon, we're gearing up for our pre-Monster Fest September show and have a great double-feature lined up for you! Once again we're returning to the wonderful world of Amicus anthologies, with arguably the two best entries from their esteemed catalog: Tales From the Crypt & Vault of Horror. Those titles are no strangers to fans of classic comic books (or HBO for that matter), as they are based on the classic EC horror comics of the 1950's. The films feature a host of great stars including the likes of Joan Collins, Peter Cushing and Tom "Dr. Who" Baker, inhabiting some truly spine-tingling tales. There's really no going wrong here, and it's a perfect warm up for Monster Fest : ) Without any further ado here are your full Episode 57 details:

When: Friday, September 17th

Where: Chesapeake Central Library, 298 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322

Films:

8:00 P.M.: Tales From the Crypt (1972)

9:45 P.M.: Vault of Horror (1973)

So there you have it, two Amicus classics on the big screen . . . THE WAY THEY WERE MEANT TO BE SEEN! You dare not miss it!

Be there or be square! If only Baker wore his outrageously long scarf in Vault of Horror.

You know I don't think he sports a scarf in the film, but as I recall he has a ridiculously unkempt beard!

Oh you are correct sir, there is no scarf to be found. I do have to concur on the beard thing though. Baker is looking rather unkempt in this one but it goes with the character I reckon.
