The Sivads of March Are Here

Memphis Flyer reporter Chris Davis did a MONSTROUS job writing the cover story about the Sivads of March in this week’s edition:

The horror first took control of Memphis television sets at 6 p.m. Saturday, September 29, 1962. It began with a grainy clip of black-and-white film showing an ornate horse-drawn hearse moving silently through a misty stretch of Overton Park. Weird music screeched and swelled, helping to set the scene. A fanged man in a top hat and cape dismounted. His skin was creased, corpse-like. He looked over his shoulder once, then dragged a crude, wooden coffin from the back of the hearse. His white-gloved hand opened the lid, releasing a plume of thick fog and revealing the bloody logo of Fantastic Features.

“Ah. Goooood eeeevening. I am Sivad, your monster of ceremonies,” the caped figure drawled, in an accent that existed nowhere else on planet Earth.

Go here for the rest of the story.

In the same issue, Davis’ cohort Chris Herrington offers a complete synopsis of the Fantastic Features we’ll be showing at the Brooks all weekend.

Folks, if you don’t have tickets yet for tonight’s kickoff for the Sivads of March, we recommend pre-purchasing them online, because tonight looks like it’s going to be a sellout!
