SCHALCKEN THE PAINTER (1979) Jeremy Clyde, Maurice Denham, Cheryl Kennedy, John Justin, Anthony Sharp. It is amazing to see Clyde, a former British Invasion heart-throb (Yes…Chad and Jeremy!) giving an outstanding performance in what is truly a marvelous gothic horror film. Based on the chilling J. Sheridan LeFanu (the man who gave us Carmilla) short story of the same name. A lovely maiden (Kennedy) disappears after being forced into marriage with a mysterious man. Schalcken (played by Clyde) is determined to find out what happened to her, having used her previously as a model. The stark terror he eventually unearths grips him for the rest of his life and spills into his paintings. This is one of those movies you just have to see to find out how good it is. Beautiful color.
