FOLEY - As a lead up to the library’s popular Halloween Extravaganza on Sat, Oct 27, the Foley Public Library will be hosting a Vincent Price Movie Marathon over the course of three Saturdays in October – Oct 6, 13, and 20. All movies begin at 1 pm in the upstairs meeting room of the library.
On Oct 6, the film will be The Bat, starring Vincent Price and Agnes Moorehead. Filmed in 1959 and directed by Crane Wilbur, this is a film about a mystery writer who rents a country house only to find there is a killer, known as “the Bat,” on the loose in the area.
On Oct 13, the film will be The Last Man on Earth, starring Vincent Price and filmed in 1964. Directed by Ublado Ragona and Sidney Salkow, this film tells the story of what could happen if the entire world were contaminated by a disease that puts people in a zombie like state and one doctor was left alive to try and create a cure. Some say this is very similar to the more recent film entitled I Am Legend, starring Will Smith.
On Oct 20, the film will be House on Haunted Hill, starring Vincent Price and Carol Ohmat. Also filmed in 1959 and directed by William Castle, this film concerns a millionaire who offers $10,000 to five people who agree to be locked in a large, spooky, rented house overnight with him and his wife. As stated in the film, “If I were gonna haunt somebody, this would certainly be the house I’d do it in.”
Free snacks and drinks will be served at each movie. Should you require further information, please call Foley Public Library at 251-943-7665. You can also check out our website, www.foleylibrary.org, or look for our Facebook page.
