For the twenty-second day of the B&S About Movies April Movie Thon, let’s talk about movies some stars would like to forget.

April 24: Reincarnated (and it feels so good) — Hey it’s Shirley McClaine’s birthday, so let’s write about movies that have a reincarnation theme.

All April long, we’ll have thirty themes as writing prompts. If you’d like to be part of it, you can just send us an article for that day to bandsaboutmovies@gmail.com or post it on your site and share it out with the hashtag #BSAprilMovieThon.

Here are a few movies to watch today:

Audrey Rose (1977): Based on the 1975 novel of the same name by Frank De Felitta — who also wrote the screenplay, as well as The Entity and Dark Night of the Scarecrow — this is the story of Bill and Janice Templeton, who are being hounded by a mysterious stranger who just wants to meet their daughter Ivy, because she’s his dead daughter.

The Manitou (1978): Susan Strasberg is Karen Tandy — who is suffering from a gigantic growth in her neck that ends up being the reincarnation of Misquamacus, a wonder worker of the Wampanoag tribe.

Beyond and Back (1978): Both this and its sequel — Beyond Death’s Door — are Sunn Classics take on whatever was hot in the new age and religious world. That means you shoudl devour them.
