Great year!

Morgiana (Juraj Herz)



He of The Cremator fame directed this just a few years later - one of my favourites.

Also, Solaris. It's not my favourite Tarkovsky film by some stretch, but if I was to nominate Andrei scenes this would be right up there:

Easily my favourite Hammer, and goes very well with Psychomania in a double bill.

Oh yes. What a joyous evening of grotty early '70s British horror that would be.

Mort, if you haven't done so already, I urge you to watch these films, preferably with some pale ale and limp burgers on tap.
