THE PARADISE THEATRE AND WEIRD ALICE PRESENT- EVIL WOMEN: a monthly screening series devoted to the femme fatales we desire and dread in our wildest dreams and worst nightmares! Join us on the last Sunday of the month for some unholy flicks- curated and presented by Weird Alice at the Paradise Theatre.
FOR LITTLE RHODA, MURDER IS CHILD’S PLAY. This May Evil Women is serving up the morbid side of Mother's Day with a screening of Mervyn LeRoy's cult classic. Rhoda Penmark seems like your average, sweet eight-year-old girl until her rival at school dies in mysterious circumstances at the school picnic and her mother starts to suspect that Rhoda was responsible in 1956's THE BAD SEED.
Air Force Colonel Kenneth Penmark and his wife, Christine, dote on their daughter, Rhoda – as does their lonely landlady, Monica Breedlove. But self-centered Rhoda has a secret tendency for selfishness and loves to accumulate gifts, whether given or stolen, in her room. Christine keeps her knowledge of her daughter’s darker side to herself, but when a schoolmate of Rhoda’s dies mysteriously, her self-deception unravels.
