Orgy of the Living Dead Memories – Screen 13’s Triple Feature Classics

HIGH-POINT-9-20-75-DEAD

9-20-75. High Point, NC, possibly the most inspired presentation of this legendary three-film show.

The Orgy of the Living Dead was the classic 3-film Europix Consolidated show that traveled through The US during the Early to Mid 70’s that contained two well-remembered titles that were PD Video staples for years, Mario Bava’s Kill Baby Kill as Curse of the Living Dead and Armando de Ossorio’s Malenka AKA Fangs of the Living Dead, a film that rode nicely on the coattails of The Fearless Vampire Killers.¬†Revenge… was Elio Scardamagila’s The Murder Clinic and has a following as well.

Both Bava’s and Scardamagila’s films were released in The US in 1968 and 1967 respectively with Fangs of the Living Dead being new to American screens at the time.

KANSAS-CITY-11-11-72

This 11-11-72 showing in Kansas City had a fourth film in Night of the Living Dead, but as it was advertised in Color, I wonder if that was another film being played under the title of the classic film or if it was just mistakenly announced that it was in Color…

…of course, there was some competition in the area with another genre popular at Drive Ins of the time…

3-23-73, Toledo – Sad they had to cut the Anita Ekberg film out of the show for this presentation, though!

4-6-73, New London, Conn. A small ad, but still sweet! Plus, you have your weekend planned with the other screen at the Twin. Of course, if you’re of voting age, you could also hop into the Capitol for the hit “Sex Ed” flick 101 Acts of Love!
