No, not really, but imagine if you could combine the two? Well, tonight you can! The New Beverly Cinema is hosting a double feature of Joe Dante’s Matinee (1993) and The Masque of Red Death (1964) – one of my favorites (if I’m forced to pick) of the Corman flicks – all of that crushed velvet, Hazel Court, Vincent Price’s eyebrow-arching gothic horror goodness and if that’s not enough – Jane Asher, too.
In between films, Dana Gould will chat with both Corman and Dante. If that’s not enough, tomorrow, the Hero Complex Gallery along with Trailers from Hell co-present artwork inspired by- and props from- the films of Corman and Dante. If you can’t make it tonight, both Corman and Dante will be there tomorrow as well.
