Bad Film Society shows really bad film

The Bad Film Society will show the film "Evil Spawn" on Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Ashland Elks Club.

"Evil Spawn" is a 1987 film that "sort of starts out about nasty alien microbes from space, but turns into the story of a fading screen starlet who believes her career might be revived by taking an experimental youth serum," society founder ,Ed Polish said. "Unfortunately whenever her passions are aroused, she turns into a towering, bug-like monster that goes on a murderous rampage."

Random dialogue footage by film star John Carradine for a project entitled "Frankenstein's Brain" is mingled with at least three different plotlines which converge at the end.

"A work of pure trash, 'Evil Spawn' doesn't even try to be anything besides a fast-paced, senseless romp," Polish said. "This is not a movie for kids, but it is definitely one of the most ridiculously enjoyable bad films ever to be screened at The Bad Film Society.

The evening will begin with shorts presented by film archivist Steven Mayerson.

Also shown will be the 11th episode of the serial "The Lost Planet" from 1953.

Members are invited to bring a contribution for a potluck dinner before the feature.

People are also invited to bring trashy old videos for door prizes in a society raffle.
