On Saturday October 27, at 10:00 p.m., Doctor Madblood presents his 43rd anniversary Halloween special, MB 43. The Doctor and his gang emerge from the depths of the Pungo Swamp to present a Roger Corman classic stinker from 1961, The Last Woman on Earth.
The film was shot on location in Puerto Rico with the cast and crew from his previous film Creature From The Haunted Sea. The screenplay is by Robert Towne, who also plays a shady lawyer in the film, under a nom de guerre.
Towne also wrote Creature From The Haunted Sea, and went on to write the Academy Award-winning screenplay for Chinatown, considered by many critics to be among the best film scripts ever written. He gained Oscar nominations for writing The Last Detail and Shampoo, and a lot of critical praise for Tequila Sunrise. He also penned scenes for Bonnie and Clyde, The Godfather and Mission Impossible.
Doctor Madblood puts his gang back together to celebrate Halloween with all the usual nonsense. His pals Dusty and Count Lacudra (both Mike Arlo), his nurse Velma (Susie Passanisi) and of course Brain (Craig T. Adams) will present plenty of foolishness. Plus the doctor’s monsters will be running around inside the film.
The Sybil of the Swamp (Jewell Willis) will appear with two of her witch-sisters (Lori Pucher and Lauren Sundarajan). We can expect trouble from this year’s troublemaker Mana-Jerka (Craig T. Adams) and Pungo Police Officer Hardas (Shellee Casiello). The entire program will be announced by PJ the DJ (Bernie Melton).
Join Doctor Madblood and his troops as they wish Hampton Roads Happy Halloween for the 43rd time!
In addition to the broadcast, this year’s anniversary will also be available online live on this page, and will be live-streamed on the WHRO Facebook page!
