Tonight on Me-TV- the genres of westerns and horror flicks collide when a bullying desperado becomes the target of a blood-sucking gunslinger in “Curse of the Undead”!
One mean galoot known as Buffer is antagonizing the family of the town doctor- who is already dealing with the heartache of a mysterious plague affecting the young womenfolk of the area, with no idea what the cause might be. When the doctor himself becomes a victim, his hotheaded son decides that Buffer must be the perpetrator- and, in spite of his sister, the local reverend, and the kindly sheriff, he aims to gun down the varmint- with tragic results!
This prompts his lovely sister to advertise for someone to step up and put Buffer in his place -that place being the local Boot Hill! Though the reverend and sheriff try to dissuade her , she finally finds the man for the job- a shadowy stranger who has some pretty odd ways- oh, like, for example- SLEEPING IN A COFFIN!?
It becomes a battle between Buffer, the fair maiden, the reverend, and the gunslinger- with the lines blurring (thank you, Robin Thicke) with the reality of the existence of the undead on the frontier !
This unusual 1959 vampire flick features some faces you’ll recognize from Me-TV shows- we’ll point them out for you- and, we’ll have a special Sven feature playing off vampires in a rustic setting- that stems from one of the most popular current cable “reality” series!
“Curse of the Undead” saddles up on ME-TV tonight at 10 pm eastern and pacific, 9 pm central, and please check your local listings for when we’ll be on in your neck (see what I did there? Vampires?) of the woods. In Chicago, get a return visit to the “Cult of the Cobra” on WCIU- the U- at 11 am!
