Best bad-horror-movie double feature ever

[From page 29 of the Des Moines Tribune on May 28, 1980.]

If I had one time-travel token, I'd probably use it for May 1980 and get myself to Des Moines, Iowa, and the SE 14th Street Drive-In to watch the double feature of the exquisitely awful Cathy's Curse and personal favorite (but still mostly awful) Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things.

It's also the only way to see the drive-in theater. According to Cinema Treasures, it opened on May 14, 1948, and was demolished at an unknown date after the mid-1980s. The site is now a Menards home improvement store, and I hope Cathy is haunting the aisles.
