Valentine’s Day Double Feature

Movie Information

In Brief: Valentine's Day may well be a holiday manufactured by greeting card companies, but that doesn't mean the Thursday Horror Picture Show crew doesn't feel the love. We'll be celebrating this most saccharine of special occasions by presenting our own version of a love letter to horror fans with a double bill to die for. Since it's also Oscar season, we'll start off with The Last Woman on Earth (1960), directed by  Roger Corman, which was the debut of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Robert Towne (ChinatownThe Last Detail). We follow up that bombshell with 1962's The Brain That Wouldn't Die, a film that only a lunatic would think was romantic. Fortunately, you have just such a lunatic programming for the THPS!
Genre: Horror
Director: Roger Corman; Joseph Green
Starring: Betsy Jones-Moreland, Antony Carbone, Robert Towne; Jason Evers, Virginia Leith, Anthony La Penna

The Thursday Horror Picture Show presents The Last Woman on Earth and The Brain That Wouldn’t Die on Thursday, Feb. 14, at 7 p.m. with an introduction from Xpress head film critic Scott Douglas at Eurisko Beer Co., 255 Short Coxe Ave., Asheville.
