Hello and welcome back to everyone's favorite Thanksgiving haunt!
Just as this USA holiday signals the start of the Christmas season, it also begins the most hectic time of the year - the holiday shopping season. We here at the creepy cinema thought most of you could use a break from the fussing and fighting that comes along with all those Black Friday deals; so, set against a backdrop of Nazis, zombies and jungle dangers, we happily present three films featuring the almost forgotten comic genius of Mantan Moreland!
First up, after some brief coming attractions, we present 1941's "King of Zombies" wherein Mantan and his boss come across a zombie master on a remote Caribbean island. Then, after a quick intermission, we bring you the "Law of the Jungle", a 1942 epic with Mr. Moreland and Arline Judge taking on enemy agents during a safari. Finally, we close out the evening with more zombies as Mantan meets John Carradine in 1943's "Revenge of the Zombies".
Now, this triple feature may sound a bit more horrific than humorous, but trust us, Mantan Moreland was never in a movie that he could not steal with his comic timing and downtown styling that mocked the stereotypes of the times and elevated this character with genuine intelligence and well deserved respect.
We salute Mr. Moreland because he was a warm and funny man. We hope you too will appreciate his great talents as you take a breather from spending your hard earned money on all those Christmas gifts. But don't forget to visit the snack bar - who knows what kind of deals you might find there!
