DEMENTIA 13 (1963, Anamorphic Widescreen) William Campbell, Luana Anders, Patrick Magee, Bart Patton. A choice chiller set in an eerie mansion with ax murders a-plenty. A scheming widow plans to snag her late husband’s inheritance, unaware that she is targeted by an axe-wielding killer who lurks inside the family's gloomy estate. A riveting music score features a harpsichord and is one of the highlights of this early Francis Coppola effort. Don’t miss it, this is truly one of the great low-budget horror films of the 1960s with a great pre-credit sequence. Roger Corman was the producer This is the uncut 75 minute version, from a beautiful 35mm print.
THE TERROR (1963, Anamorphic Widescreen) Boris Karloff, Jack Nicholson, Sandra Knight, Dick Miller, Jonathan Haze. Jack’s a wandering soldier who traces a ghostly lady to the castle of a mysterious baron played by Boris. Strange, supernatural things begin to happen. Certainly one of the most underrated of Roger Corman’s ‘60s horror films with incredible atmosphere and lush colors. The shocking climax is unforgettable. The opening credits are reminiscent of the same style Corman used in his '50s films like The Brain Eaters and Beast with a Million Eyes. Nice color, 35mm.
