QUAD Cinema presents our ongoing look at lost works of American independent cinema Underexposed with this Southern Gothic horror story.
Screening on a 16mm print with filmmaker Richard Blackburn in person!
Richard Blackburn, 1972, U.S., 90m, 16mm
Angelic choirgirl Lila Lee (Cheryl “Rainbeaux” Smith) goes in search of her dying gangster father and arrives at a Georgia backwoods town populated by rival vampire factions. She’s taken in by Lemora (Lesley Gilb), who proves to be the vampires’ queen and aims to initiate the innocent into the cult of the undead. With a dreamlike atmosphere, this genuinely creepy Southern Gothic period piece of modest means is one of American indie horror’s best kept secrets.
With Richard Blackburn in person!
