Transcript DEAD OF NIGHT (Basil Deardon, Cavalcanti, Charles Chrichton and Robert Hamer, 1945) Recent episodic horror films don't bear comparison with this, neither does Magic, even though one sequence brilliantly stars Michael Redgrave as a possibly crazy ventriloquist. The other episodes are generally good ghost stories and the linking theme is particularly atmospheric. (104 mins) THE PHANTOM T0LLB00TH Chuck Jones and Abe Lewitow, 1969) As a movie for kids this is infinitely better thanTHE BEAST WITH HUGE THINGS. Chuck Jones did Bugs Bunny cartoons and this is a reputedly good feature following the adventures of a small boy whisked away in a magic tollbooth (which sounds suspiciously like the Tardis). (89 mins) SON OF THE BLOB (Larry Hagman, 1972) (AKA 'Beware! The Blob') Essentially a Hollywood home movie, a cheapo sequel to 'The Blob' featuring a lot of guest stars being absorbed for laffs by a pile of mobile Jello. Written by Jack Woods and Anthony Harris and stars Robert Walker Jnr, Gwynne Gilford, with cameos by Burgess Meredith, Carol Lynley, Godfrey Cambridge, Shelley Berman and Fred Smoot. ( 81* mins) PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK (Peter Weir, 1975) Like 'Duel' the atmosphere of this one makes it an ideal compliment to a sf programme. A very sensual film about a school for young women in Australia with a compelling sense of the alien. Not a sop for the Aussies but a film to draw even the most hardened drunkards from the bar ( even the Australians). ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (Jim Sharman, 1975) Tim Curry plays the Transvestite from Transexual Transylvania and Richard O'Brien, apart from having written the original thing, plays his draculoid manservant Riffraff who eventually arrests him for intergalactic misconduct. Lots of sex and drugs and rock and roll and cinematic references. Richard O'Brien will be making a personal appearance immediately after the screening to discuss the movie. ALLEGRO N0N TR0PP0 (Bruno Bozzetto, 1976) A very nicely and amusingly animated Italian parody of Fantasia which would be 100% worth seeing if it wasn't for some indifferent Italian live action comedy in between the animations. (80 mins) STAR WARS (George Lucas, 1977 ) A little-known obscure American sf art movie (121 mins) PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (Brian de Palma, 1974) The Phantom of the Opera and Faust combined and updated with good Paul Williams songs in one of the most entertaining films of the seventies. The Paradise is a new rock club haunted by William Finley (the gangling telepath in The Fury) whose face and sanity have been destroyed in a record press. Paul Williams plays the immortal Swann who steals Finley's songs.Written by Brian de Palma.( 91 mins) FLESH GORDON (Michael Benveniste, Howard Ziehm and Walter R. Cichy, 1973) Began life as a cheap hard core porn movie and ended up as a very soft core and expensive send-up of Flash Gordon and an infinitely better film than it might otherwise have been. Lots of the jokes work and the special effects are period and often impressive. Great animation sequences, especially the homage to King Kong at the end of the film. (84 mins). THE CAR (Elliot Silverstein, 1977) A marvellous rip-off of 'Duel' which surprisingly didn't do better on release. A mysterious low-slung black sedan roars out of a dust-storm and is soon flattening lots of people, apparently for the sheer heck of it - eventually it even wipes out the hero's beautiful young fiance ( Kathleen Lloyd) by driving straight through her living room. Don't miss it. Written by Dennis Shryack, Michael Butler and Lane Slate and starring James Brolin. (97 mins) THE MAN IN THE WHITE SUIT (Alexander Mackendrick, 1951) Typically low-key British approach to sf - the problems created by new technology of post-war Britain. Alec Guinness plays the inventor of an artificial everlasting fibre unable to forsee its social impact. Subtle comedy and stiff upper lips in evidence throughout. (87 mins). 17.
