This awesome double feature tribute to Ed Wood draws us inexorably into the nether world of grade-Z cinema, a mesmerizing realm of microscopic budgets, cheesy special effects and outrageous home-spun performances.
Night of the Fools (2004, B&W and Color): An otherworldly encounter with alien beings gives director Edward D. Wood, Jr. a telepathic inspiration for his next picture! After a night of dining and drink, Ed and a small crew of loyal friends - Bela Lugosi, Tor Johnson, Vampira, and the amazing Criswell - discuss plans for his new project, which has the working title, Grave-Robbers from Outer Space. As the wine flows and tongues loosen, no one notices when Ed is drawn off into the night by a strange glow from space. A giant UFO, hovering over the glittering lights of Hollywood, beams the film-maker aboard, where an Intergalactic entity explains how his next movie will serve a greater cosmic plan for all future generations.
Starring Dash Titan, Yahuba Daly, Tim Timkoko, Don Mouskouri; Written and Directed by Ace Fronton.
Gypsy Vampire's Revenge (2007, Color): The demonic minions of Count Lugo, the Gypsy Vampire, bring him back from the dead to continue their blood-sucking orgy! They've taken up residence in the same castle they were driven from three years earlier. The new owners have turned Lugo's lair into a playhouse and his old nemesis, Dr. Cabasa, has arrived to consult on the first production - a play based on the Doctor's earlier bloody showdown with the Gypsy Vampire!
