(1962) George Mather, Austin Green, Esther Furst, Lomax Study. This drive-in quickie deals with the horrifying effects of raw fear on humans. A medical student has a secret fear of the dark, and when he steps into the cemetery to cut a ring off the finger of a corpse, things get very frightening. The autopsy scene is a macabre delight with some great black comedy. The rattlesnake scene is another fun moment with Mather jumping up and down trying to kill what's obviously a rubber snake! There's also a goofy beauty contest with all kinds of good-looking '60s babes dressed in tight one-piece swimming suits. The film's climactic scene inside a spooky crypt is memorable. There's also a lot of snappy teenage patter with lines like "I'm tired of playing second fiddle to a skeleton." Critics be damned...WE LIKE THIS FILM! From 16mm.
