Lonesome for a time when demented characters like Vampira, Elvira, and Morgus the Magnificent invaded late-night television bearing B-movie frights and cinematic shrieks? Those were the days when a memorable Saturday evening required little more than a ghoulish host and something creepy flickering on a black-and-white screen.
The glory days of macabre midnight movies may have long since passed, but dont tell that to Phoenixs own Tommy Cannon, aka Dr. Zombie. His quest for shock film supremacy has found him schlepping his stock of schlocky and spooky flicks to some of the states darkest corners, including (gasp!) Casa Grande. The horror!
Cannon is bringing the 1962 cult classic The Brain that Wouldnt Die -- featuring a crazed mutant, disembodied head and a maniacal mad scientist -- to the Trunk Space, 1506 Grand Avenue, for the latest edition of Dr. Zombies Movie Lab of Terror on Saturday, April 23.
