Scary movies The intrepid Andrew's Video Vault delivers a double bill of typically obscure horror films: The Body Beneath, from 1970, is an old-school vampire film (i.e., you don't want to kiss them, girls) with a surprising political undertone, filmed by grindhouse auteur Andy Miligan, about a family of bloodsuckers disguised as clergy. The 1991 Door to Silence, by Italian "splatter king" Lucio Fulci, stars John Savage as a salesman thrust into a terrifying nightmare in backwoods Louisiana. The films screen at 8 p.m. at the Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St. Admission is free. Call 215-573-3234.
