We’ve received quite a few requests for this weekend’s film. We’re not sure why. It doesn’t seem that special. It’s not particularly scary. The effects are fairly mediocre. And the acting is only a notch or two above wooden. But we suspect it’s one of those “it scared me as a kid” movies. And nostalgia coupled with terror can be a beautiful thing. And that’s good enough for us, so this Saturday we shall serve up:
“Fiend Without a Face” from 1958. Starring Marshall Thompson, Kim Parker and Terry Kilburn, this British-made indy movie revolves around an invisible life form that feeds on atomic power and steals human brains and spinal columns. Yes, you heard that last part right. Should be fun.
Joining us to watch this cinematic gem will be actor Jonathan David, who has the unique distinction of being one of a very few actors to be featured in every single episode of the original Star Trek series. He’ll tell us how he was cast for this prestigious gig, chat about what it was like behind the scenes and bring us up to speed on how he’s doing on the convention circuit.
All while Tangella practices her cosmetology skills, next Saturday night at 9PM Pacific at the link above and on-demand at our Roku, AppleTV and FireTV channels. Don’t miss it!
