You begin to crave pumpkins and scary stories... history can have it's frights too.

Join us for Saturday Night Frights! A series of classic horror films to be shown at the museum with special horror host guests from the excellent locally produced podcast, Garage-A-Rama.

Sept. 21st -- The Brain that Wouldn't Die, 1962

Plot -- "Dr. Bill Cortner (Jason Evers) and his fiancée, Jan Compton (Virginia Leith), are driving to his lab when they get into a horrible car accident. Compton is decapitated. But Cortner is not fazed by this seemingly insurmountable hurdle. His expertise is in transplants, and he is excited to perform the first head transplant. Keeping Compton's head alive in his lab, Cortner plans the groundbreaking yet unorthodox surgery. First, however, he needs a body."
