Anticlimactic Bat Pills
I haven't gone back to check the previous schedules, but I'm pretty sure our Halloween Film Festival hit an all-time low point with a movie called THE VAMPIRE. Not much of a title to begin with, and the guy's not even a vampire! They threw in some bats as a lazy afterthought. And I think he... takes pills of made of bats...? But he's strictly a Mr. Hyde type. He's a doctor, and at the beginning of the movie one of his patients tells him in a burst of disjointed sentences that she lives alone, has a heart condition, is easily frightened, and thinks that something is going to happen to her. "That's some heavy foreshadowing," said Dr. Theresa.
