Psychotronic Film Society presents: "Terror at London Bridge" (1985)

  • The Sentient Bean 13 East Park Avenue Savannah, GA, 31401 United States (map)

Showtime 8 p.m. with $8 admission; discounts on craft beer and organic wine during the screening.

The Psychotronic Film Society’s ongoing weekly showcase of overlooked or marginalized feature films from around the world continues with a special 65th birthday salute to the Knight Rider himself, international camp icon of both acting and pop music David Hasselhoff. In his honor, the PFS will screen the forgotten 1985 made-for-TV thriller “Terror at London Bridge,” which stars the Hoff as an unorthodox Arizona policeman who becomes convinced that a series of unsolved killings in his sleepy little tourist town of Lake Havasu are actually being committed by the reincarnation of famed British serial murderer Jack the Ripper, whose soul has been released from a stone in which it had been imprisoned for almost 100 years.

Co-starring Adrienne Barbeau (“Creepshow”), Rose Marie (TV’s “The Dick Van Dyke Show”) and the criminally under-appreciated Randolph Mantooth (TV’s “Emergency”), this surprisingly entertaining obscurity was written by William F. Nolan, the same man who peened the screenplays for Dan Curtis’ way-cool 1970s horror pilot “The Norliss Tapes,” as well as co-wrote the original novel on which the film and TV series “Logan’s Run” were based. Legitimately creepy at times, yet endearingly cheesy throughout, “Terror at London Bridge” aka “Bridge Across Time” is something of a Hasselhoff rarity which should be a treat for fans of his unique approach to the dramatic arts.
