    Movie Meltdown presents the Meltdown Macabre double feature
    Print this page

    Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it is that time of year: the air is chilled and pumpkins are emerging and before too long we'll have hordes of pesky teenagers getting up to all their usual shenanigans. But we are here to talk about the opposite of that: virginity.

    Propriety keeps me from giving my full thoughts on the subject, so we'll move on to the point: a fantastic event hosted by none other than your favorite film discussion podcast in the world: Movie Meltdown, presenting Meltdown Macabre, a super-special double feature.

    It starts with a screening of Chastity Bites, a new film whose only screening in Louisville will be at this very event. At a modern-day high school, a beautiful and charismatic woman appears to lead the girls in the Virginity Action Group, a trendy abstinence-only program. Turns out she is centuries old and relies on the blood of virgins to keep her young. Who can stop her devious plan??

    This will be followed by the cult classic Mama Dracula, starring Oscar winner Louise Fletcher (Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest). The year is 1980 and Fletcher is the title character, a vampire who relies on the blood of virgins to stay alive. However, being the end of the '70s and the beginning of the 80s, there are not many virgins around, which presents a problem for our heroine.

    Finally, to cap it all off, the Meltdown crew will be conducting a live episode recording with a discussion of Mama Dracula.

    It all happens tomorrow, Saturday, at 7:00 at the Alley Theater, located at 1205 E. Washington Street. Admission is only $10. Complete details can be found at the Facebook event page.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
