It's a case of mistaken identity when American actress Betty Williams gets confused with her vampire grandmother. Betty has inherited grandma's castle in Transylvania and accidentally sets her loose from her tomb. What follows is a sex comedy that you can really sink your teeth into, complete with a bloodsuckers' ball orgy featuring top vamp Dracula himself.

The
Silencer
(1992, USA)

Directed and Co‑written by
Amy Goldstein

Retired assassin Angel is getting back in the game. Literally, as in she gets her assignments through an 16-bit arcade machine. She's out to ice five scumbags running a child prostitution ring, including Morton Downey Jr. (The Morton Downey Jr. Show), all the while being tracked by her former boss/lover. What better way to spend the time between each hit than cheap sex and riding a bike. And they'll never see her coming. Silent, but deadly.

Russ Meyer's EVE AND THE HANDYMAN (1961, USA)

8pm:
Faster,
Pussycat!
Kill!
Kill!

(1965, USA)

Welcome to violence! Racing out into the barren California desert, three thrill-seeking go-go dancers get their kicks from crimes. Drag races, catfights, murders, straining blouses, and lots of torrid action await. Tura Satana (The Astro Zombies) stars as Varla, the karate-chopping, catsuit-suited, busty, black booted leader of the trio, laying down one sarcastic one-liner after another. "The point is of no return, and you've reached it!"

"Beyond a doubt, the best movie ever made. It is possibly better than any film that will be made in the future." ―John Waters

Shaken, Not Stirred

7pm:
Shaken, Not Stirred
Delving into the world of '60s super spies and secret agents

MODESTY BLAISE (1966, UK)
8pm:
Modesty
Blaise

(1966, UK)

Directed by
Joseph Losey
(The Servant, Mr. Klein, The Go‑Between
These Are the Damned, The Boy with Green Hair)

Monica Vitta (L'Avventura, L'Eclisse, Red Desert, La Notte, The Phantom of Liberty) is Modesty Blaise, a secret agent whose wardrobe and hair style change at the snap of her fingers. Wily cohort Terence Stamp (Superman, Superman 2, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The Limey) is there to help her thwart a jewel heist. But suave, mastermind thief Dirk Bogarde (Death in Venice, The Night Porter, The Servant, The Damned) has his own plans for them. It's a mad, mod world of sexy, stylish intrigue, mile-high hairdos, and swinging, psychedelic wall patterns in this campy spoof based on the British comic strip of the same name.
