PURE TERROR MONTH: Terror In the Jungle (1968)

I kind of wish that I was alive in 1968 just so I could have been part of this movie. Seriously, I've never seen a film that so quicky changes its tone and central theme so quickly, abandoning characters that its taken time to set up for an entirely new situation. And then we get… Continue reading PURE TERROR MONTH: Terror In the Jungle (1968)
