The AFI Silver theater went on a month-long Aussie exploitation binge, and I was there.  Also, here’s a teaser for the forthcoming Drive-In Super Monster-Rama update and something extra-Halloweeny just for the hell of it:

 

Fear in the Night (1972), in which Hammer Film Production taunts us with suggestions of all the pseudo-giallo movies they never actually made…

Long Weekend (1977), in which taking a wilderness camping trip together is exactly the wrong way to fix your ailing marriage, even if Mother Nature isn’t out to get you…

Patrick (1978), in which a three-year coma is no obstacle to a psychotic psychokinetic…

Road Games (1981), in which there has to be a better way of occupying oneself on a cross-country drive than throwing down with hitchhiker-stalking serial killer…

Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983), in which it isn’t just the kids running away to join the circus…

and…

Turkey Shoot (1981), in which nobody really expects neo-fascist re-education camps to do any re-educating, anyway.
