Performers, Cast and Crew:
Moster-ous double-feature, including:
BRIDE OF THE GORILLA - Burr is a plantation owner who changes into a gorilla and terrorizes his wife, baffling the local authorities. Chaney plays the good guy for a change.
BRIDE OF THE MONSTER - A howler from Ed Wood, who brought us PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and consistently reached astonishing new lows in film-making. The grim story of a madman who puts a giant rubbery octopus in a local streambed gives Lugosi full artistic reign. Great supporting cast includes Tor Johnson as "Lobo," Lugosi's musclebound Swedish bodyguard.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Bride Of The Gorilla - Excitement and suspense abound in this rousing jungle thriller starring legendary Lon Chaney, Jr. (The Wolf Man), Raymond Burr (TV's "Perry Mason"), and tabloid sex goddess Barbara Payton as a seductive blonde bombshell. She marries a wealthy plantation owner in the South American jungle, where strange, hideous experiments are underway using ancient jungle curses and supernatural forces summoned from beyond! "Bride of Monster Mania" chronicles the evolution of women in horror films from hapless victim to empowered heroine--and specifically how some of these films reflected the changing role of women in society--featuring a sensational array of footage from silent films, classic horror, contemporary favorites and state-of-the-art science fiction. Prepare for the most bewitching collection of female-driven horror unleashed on the screen. Highlights include spectacular clips from all-time horror favorites "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935), "The Exorcist" (1973), "The Stepford Wives" (1975), "Carrie" (1976) and many more; a glimpse at ultimate sci-fi heroine "Ripley" as played by Sigourney Weaver in "Alien" (1979), "Aliens" (1986), "Alien 3" (1992) and "Alien Resurrection" (1997); enchanting footage of Dracula's alluring feminine counterparts in "Dracula's Daughter" (1936), "The Brides of Dracula" (1960), "Twins of Evil" (1971) and many more. Hosted by Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.
