Sunday Evening Video
We are in October, and all month long folks immerse themselves in the macabre in search of fun. In that spirit, we kick off the first Sunday Evening Video this month with a 1980 movie starring Vincent Price, which offers up just the right mix of scary and goofy.
Actually, it’s way more goofy than scary, but The Monster Club is still loads of fun, with Price singing, plus appearances by John Carradine, Donald Pleasence and Britt Ekland, Is undeservedly obscure. It’s basically a horror anthology with a monster’s party as the framing device for three short horror tales.
A trivia note: This film was the only time that Vincent Price played a vampire in a full-length movie. Bonus obscurity is that the music in the film is provided by The Pretty Things and a pre-fame UB40 among others.
