In the dark of night…in the cool summer air…monsters live again at The Mahoning Drive-In Theater, as we present “Universal Monster Mash VI”, two nights of 35mm triple features from the creepy crypts of the Universal film vaults!
It’s a celebration of horror from the macabre monochrome era, with classic creature features and demented deep cuts, all on the mammoth Mahoning screen!
Friday, August 19th: We begin with the film that make Boris Karloff a legend, James Whale’s FRANKENSTEIN (1931), in which a delirious doctor crafts a patchwork man from the recently-dead, with repulsive results!
Next, we check in with that vampiric vixen, DRACULA’S DAUGHER (1936), as she terrorizes London, with Dr. Van Helsing hot on her heels!
We draw the evening to a close with a 90th anniversary screening of Universal’s cinematic adaptation of what’s regarded as the first literary detective story, Edgar Allan Poe’s MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE (1932)! Bela Lugosi starts in this tale of mad scientists, gorillas, and murder!
Saturday, August 20th: Saturday night gets of to a shuffling start as Boris Karloff returns for a 90th anniversary screening of THE MUMMY (1932), a tale of centuries-old romance, resurrection, and reincarnation, with some good old-fashioned mummy murder for good measure! Sip your Tanna Leaf tea while you watch Karloff sport the finest fez fashions!
We then present an 80th anniversary screening of INVISIBLE AGENT (1942), a horror/sci-fi/espionage hybrid in which the original Invisible Man’s grandson uses the formidable formula to engage in full transparency while attempting to thwart the Nazis in WWII!
The evening wraps up with the final chapter in the CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON trilogy, presented digitally, in which medical science attempts to save the creature by making him a land-lubber, and in doing so, THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US (1956)!
