Every Saturday at Midnight, beatniks Zelda, Bird, and Theodore show the movies that must be shown! It’s a journey into the good, the bad and the foreign on “Off Beat Cinema!” – right after “Svengoolie” at 10p.m. for a double feature of fun!
This nationally syndicated late night movie show is produced right here at WBBZ-TV in Buffalo, featuring hometown actors Constance Caldwell, Anthony Billoni, and Jeffrey Roberts.
This week, it’s a brand new show when we screen, “The Werewolf & The Vampire Woman” – a 1971 color classic featuring the popular Paul Naschy.
While searching the countryside for the grave of supposed vampire Countess Wandesa Dárvula de Nadasdy (Paty Shepard), students Genevieve (Barbara Capell) and Elvira (Gaby Fuchs) meet an amiable local named Daninsky (Paul Naschy) who offers to help them look.
Not knowing he’s a werewolf, they accept, and Daninsky leads them to the tomb where they accidentally revive the sleeping vampire. She attacks, and Daninsky and Elvira cooperate in trying to stop her — falling in love in the process.
The movie poster says it all…”the blood flows like vintage merlot!”
