The Killer Must Kill Again (1975)

Luigi Cozzi is well thought of around these parts for his less down to the planet Earth fare like Hercules, Star Crash and Alien Contamination. However, his giallo experience exists, as he was the writer of Argento's Four Flies on Grey Velvet. He contributed to other Argento projects throughout his career, like the special effects for Phenomena and second unit direction for The Stendhal… Continue reading The Killer Must Kill Again (1975)

TABLOID WEEK: Mysteries from Beyond Planet Earth (1975)

George Gale has mostly worked as a post-production guy, but he also produced and directed two strange 1970's Fortean documentaries, Mysteries from Beyond Planet Earth and Are We Alone in the Universe?

CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Deep Red (1975)

Deep Red is one of the few Argento movies that I've seen in a theater. I'm not sure what the audience expected, as it was on what was presented as a grindhouse night. I think they wanted something like the modern interpretation of the term, all fast moving action and laughs. I don't think that… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS MONTH: Deep Red (1975)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 8: Eyeball (1975)

The Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge for today is THE EYES HAVE IT. This pick must have an eye specific scene. I've already covered the granddaddy of all eye torture, Fulci's Zombi, as well as his other paean to ocular decimation,The New York Ripper. There's also Demonia, where nuns eat a dead baby's eyeballs. And Cat in the Brain,… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 8: Eyeball (1975)
