Aroung the same time they co-wrote the classic American Graffiti (but long before they made the infamous Howard the Duck), husband/wife team Willard Huyck & Gloria Katz made this cheapie horror movie. Despite its low budget trappings, this story about a woman who travels to a town that is strange to locate her lost father only to encounter a death cult that is strange is full of moments that are genuinely jarring occasionally. A very underrated movie, that also features classic character actors Elisha Cook Jr. and Royal Dano.
Released the same year he made Magnum Force, Ted Post’s 1973 oddity follows a social worker who discovers a grown man who has been pathologically infantilized by his mother. The man literally still thinks and acts like a baby, sleeps in a crib, etc.. This is a flick with a whopper of a twist ending you won’t see coming.

Essentially an animated Japanese Road Warrior riff with a lot of mysticism and martial arts thrown in, this movie based on the manga”Hokuto no Ken tankĊbon” is a violent hoot. The protagonist Ken (dressed in total Mad Max regalia) has mastered the art of Hokuto Shinken, wherein he basically rapid-fire punches bad guys on their pressure points until their bodies and heads literally explode! Available in both Japanese with subs and an English dub.

The Slayer

The Baby

Lord of the Rings‘ Peter Jackson’s first foray into attributes lives up to its title and then some, including crazy gross-out gags generated through ingenious special effects that withstand the low low budget. Jackson himself plays with two roles, and you may see the first inklings of a few.
This Spanish-made cult classic is like Murder on the Orient Express mashed up with a Hammer Horror flick. Hammer vets Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing lead the charge to Moscow in 1906 from China as passengers aboard the Trans-Siberian Express as they deal with one of the monsters in history, an extraterrestrial that occupies host bodies and leaves pictures of pre-historic ground. Yeah. Telly Savalas is having a ball as a Cossack officer that is willful, and the film is full of a lot of fun mini work of this train.
Annually before Aliens came out, that movies effects artists Dennis Skotak and Robert Skotak actually did the impressive effects with this Alien ripoff. Featuring a fun cast including Klaus Kinski and directed by William Malone, it’s heavy on spooky atmosphere and a must-see for Xenomorph fans. The version available on the service is actually the director’s cut titled”The Titan Find.”


Satan’s School For Girls

This 1973 made-for-TV film (produced by Aaron Spelling!) Isn’t as salacious as its title suggests. It’s actually a cracking terror story set at an all-girls academy where a young woman goes to look into her sister’s death. Roy Thinnes is terrific, and it also features a pre-Charlie’s Angels Kate Jackson!
This classic shocker (that is poised for a big remake) stars George C. Scott in a bravura performance as a composer who moves into an eerie Victorian mansion after the tragic deaths of his wife and child. Once he moves in he starts experiencing phenomena. With atmosphere, this is one of the most accomplished horror movies.
This movie could almost be considered a sort of precursor to the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise (right down to the burn victim dream monster), following an abstract artist named Kay plagued by nightmares of supernatural torment and death. Fearing her health, she is taken by Kay’s friends on a vacation to an island that they find upon landing is in fact deserted. The group starts getting picked off one by one every time Kay falls asleep.

Jodelle Ferland stars as an imaginative young girl whose parents (Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Tilly) both overdose and she’s left stranded at a remote farm house with some rather strange neighbors across the way. This is a film designed to be divisive and test your limits as a viewer in virtually every way, especially via the juxtaposition of the disturbing and the innocent.
