HORROR Double Bill from Republic

Every so often, I seem to come across these older DOUBLE BILL film  programmes – and this comes from Republic Pictures who are known really for their Westerns – some very good ones at that – which they seemed to churn out in great numbers.

THE VAMPIRE’S GHOST and VALLEY OF THE ZOMBIES! RARE 1940′s double HORROR bill!

Republic Horror Double Bill

Republic Pictures, were well known for  Westerns and serials but they also ventured into HORROR films.  These are two  from the mid-1940s featuring John Abbott with Peggy Stewart in THE VAMPIRE’S GHOST and Robert Livingston, Adrian Booth and  Ian Keith in VALLEY OF THE ZOMBIES. Also featuring Adele Mara and Roy Barcroft.  

Republic Horror Double Bill 2

Republic Pictures. Directed by Philip Ford and Leslie Selander.

Republic Pictures churned out a lot of “B” pictures  during the 1940s, many of which were barely watchable. Some like this one were quite good.   THE VAMPIRE’S GHOST is a low budget horror film with the script written by the legendary science fiction writer Leigh Brackett.

The story has the exotic location of an African plantation with the well mannered John Abbott starring as Webb Fallon, a centuries old vampire now living in Africa and running a saloon. The incidents in the film are quite unusual, most notably an exotic dance performed by Adele Mara in Fallon’s saloon.

An atmospheric film.

These are of course TWO 1940′s  Films.
