Panic – 1982 – Italy/Spain

An experiment goes awry and a scientist is infected by a deadly bacteria. He degenerates into a freakish mutant and stalks the streets of a small Italian town. A corporation and the government try to conceal the accident. They quarantine the town and debate whether to kill all the inhabitants with nerve gas. A special agent for the military (named Captain Kirk of all things) is sent in to find and kill the mutant before the creature can spread its infection. He teams up with a sexy lady scientist, but surprisingly, they don’t hook up unless I fell asleep and missed it. In the end, the mutant is killed and the town is spared the horrors of nerve gas. After the credits, a message says, “What you have seen might really happen… Perhaps it already has.”

How to Make a Doll – 1968 – United States

Percy Corley is a scientist who is scared of women. He lives with his mother and drives an Isetta (like Steve Urkel from Family Matters). With another scientist named Hamilcar West, he programs a computer (with a punched card reader) to create beautiful subservient girlfriends. With a puff of smoke, nymphomaniac babes in underwear and high heels pop out of the computer and make out with the scientists. Getting tired of that, Hamilcar (somehow) transfers his mind into the computer and (somehow) teaches Percy to be a chick magnet. Percy balls women until he is sick of it and then settles down with a nice girl.

The Witches’ Mountain

February 5, 2017 at 10:36 pm (3 Heads, Witches' Mountain) (, )

The Witches’ Mountain – 1975 – Spain

In the first scene of The Witches’ Mountain, a woman returns to her house and discovers something amiss. One of her wigs has been cut up, a doll has been impaled, and her cat has been killed. It’s the work of a little girl (maybe the woman’s daughter) and her pet snake. The woman then lights the bratty girl on fire. This scene is mostly unrelated to the rest of the film.

A photographer breaks up with his girlfriend (the woman in the first scene) and takes a trip to the mountains where he meets a beautiful new girlfriend. The photographer and his girlfriend stay in a decrepit mountain village occupied by a single old lady. Roaming through the woods is a coven of witches who kidnap the travelers and abuse them in magic rituals.

Drive-In Massacre – 1977 – United States

A sword-wielding maniac beheads people at a drive-in theater. Two pudgy middle-aged police detectives investigate. The theater was built on the site of a carnival and is staffed by former carnies, but this fact is irrelevant to the plot. The detectives unsuccessfully question a series of mean, seedy, or pathetic suspects. The theater manager cruelly abuses his staff. A peeping tom cracks during interrogation and admits, “I just wanted to beat my meat!” An imbecilic janitor gets fired for helping the detectives. At the plot’s climax, the killer commits a daring murder in the theater’s projection booth. He is never caught and his identity is never revealed. Before the credits, a message warns viewers to be careful while attending drive-in theaters.
