'The Wild World of Batwoman'
The public is invited to witness a new low in The Bad Film Society's attempt to scrutinize really, really terrible cinema on Sunday, March 11, at 6 p.m., downstairs at the Ashland Elks.
The feature will be the pop culture gem, "The Wild World of Batwoman" from 1966. Slightly overage Katherine Victor stars in a tight black costume with a cheap mask, teased hair and a rubber bat glued to her chest. She and her bikini-clad, go-go dancing Batgirls battle Dr. Neon and Ratfink who are after a hearing aid/atomic bomb and use laughter pills.
Godawful director, Jerry Warren was sued for using the name Batwoman, so he changed the title to "She Was a Hippy Vampire." He lost so much cash fighting the lawsuit, it was years before he blessed us with more of his cinematic charms.
Please bring some delicious treats for the potluck dinner before the feature. Various oddball shorts will be screened to aid digestion.
Also, don't miss the first episode of the 1939 serial "The Phantom Creeps," Starring bad film favorite Bela Lugosi as demented Dr. Zorka who has a giant snarling robot, an invisibility belt, a z-ray gun and mechanical death spiders!
Also, unload your trashy videos for door prizes in our humiliating and hilarious raffle. Loads o'fun!
Check out our website: /badfilm. The entrance to the Ashland Elks is on Will Dodge Way, the alley between E. Main and Lithia Way and First and Second streets. You'll see the "Elks Dining" sign. The private Elks parking lot will be open for use. To park, enter on Second Street. There is a $3 donation requested to cover the costs of the room rental and supplies.
This is a unique opportunity for the public to enter the hallowed and prestigious portals of the very ritzy and exclusive Ashland Elks Lodge. Ask me how to join.
