'The Leech Woman'

The Bad Film Society presents yet another precious but dreadful jewel of a movie Sunday at 6 p.m. downstairs in The Ashland Elks' Dungeon.

The feature is the 1960 Universal horror film "The Leech Woman." When a decrepit, old mysterious African woman offers an ambitious doctor the secret of eternal youth, he decides to take his estranged and no-longer-young-and-beautiful wife along with him on a safari to witness the secret sacrificial ritual. But then the wife finds out the true reason for their sudden reconciliation is so that she can serve as his guinea pig. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, especially one with the murderous secret of endless youth and beauty!

Also stay tuned the fourth chapter of the serial "Tiger Woman" from 1944. Evil oil speculators in South America attempt to drive away an exotic native tribe and their hot queen, the Tiger Woman "¦ but she's a white woman and might be the lost heiress to a vast fortune! Actually The Tiger Woman wore a leopard-spotted outfit because the studio couldn't find any tiger patterned fabric! It's a howler!

Members should bring some great food for a scrumptious potluck dinner before the feature. Some bottom feeders just come for the great food! It sure beats dumpster diving!

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.
