Meet the “Banned in the UK” film Driller Killer, which is a perfect example of the 1970’s violent exploitation film Americans loved at the time. It’s about an starving artist who likes to take out random bums with a power drill. Rated R.
This low budget 60’s sci-fi is a unique mixture of sawdust, glue, ham and wood. A Nazi scientist invents a time machine enabling him to go back to alter the events of WWII. He’s discovered by some teenagers who’s car breaks down on the way to a college football game.
Bert I. Gordon is an American film director most famous for such science fiction and horror schlock as The Amazing Colossal Man and Village of the Giants. This movie is less famous.
The film is set in Stephens Sanitarium, a secluded rural mental health institute whose chief doctor believes that the best way to deal with insanity is to allow the patients to freely act out their realities in the hopes that they will snap out of it, so to speak.
Here’s a better than fair Boris Karloff movie about an Egyptologist that comes back from the dead to take revenge.
The film begins following a moonlit night in the Louisiana Bayou town of Marsh Island as two farmers discover the mauled, dead body of a local resident, an attractive young girl. Sheriff Aaron Whitaker (David Janssen) is called in. The victim’s temperamental brother Lawrence Burrifors (Geoffrey Lewis) arrives at the crime scene and jumps to the conclusion that the girl’s lover committed the murder, a man whose very name her brother does not know. The town’s Dr. Drutan (John Beradino) examines the body and pronounces the girl died of a severe blow to the head caused by a human hand. He tells Sheriff Whitaker, “It looks like you have a murder on your hands.” The sheriff replies, “Just what I needed.”
