Get your gore-gawk on Femmeward Lens-style with “A Lizard in a Woman’s Skin”!
Considered by many to be Italian gore master Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece, this cult classic murder mystery is full of LSD orgies, melodramatic psychoanalysis and kinky lesbianism in swinging 1960’s London. A delusional woman (Florinda Bolkan) is the suspect in a series of erotic murders and it’s up to a policeman (Stanley Baker) to decipher fact from fantasy. Music by Ennio Morricone. Lucio Fulci—Spain/Italy/France—1971—98 mins.
If time and interest we might also show another 70’s blood-romp,
“The Grapes of Death” (Les Raisins de la Mort)
Pesticides used in the local vineyards turn villagers into horribly mutated, zombie-like killers. When a young woman arrives in the town, her planned vacation turns into a horrifying nightmare. Jean Rollin cranks up the gore in this long-unavailable trash-film classic, presented uncut and uncensored, mastered from the original 35mm camera negative. Also known as Pesticide. In French with English subtitles. Jean Rollin—France—1978—90 mins
ALSO, serving popcorn and reptilian seductress sangria for a suggested donation!
