I saw this as a kid at the venerable Pickwick Theater, right across the street from where I work today. On a whim, I picked this–which I hadn’t seen since 1977–for my Halloween movie party feature presentation last year. It was pretty popular, offering as it did a nice mix of some pretty good stuff (especially the final 20 minutes or so) topped with thick, gooey servings of pure ’70s cheese.
I noticed the film was produced by Universal, which is the studio my friends who show movies at the Portage has a deal with. So I began campaigning for this film to be run there. Sure enough, the guy who runs the programs says it will be featured during Halloween week, when they do multiple shows throughout the week. It will be doubled billed with Duel.
I think you can imagine where I’ll be spending that evening.
