This post is part of the For the Love of Film: The Film Preservation Blogathon hosted by Ferdy on Films, This Island Rod, and Wonders in the Dark. This year’s theme is science-fiction, and we’ll be leaning hard toward the “mad science” portion of the genre. Hope you enjoy, and please click on the link above and donate to help restore the silent film, Cupid in Quarantine. The goal is to raise $10,000. Give what you can, won’t you? Thank you!

And now, Boils and Ghouls, I give you William Girdler’s completely demented The Manitou, whose plot of an ancient Indian shaman being reborn from a tumorous growth on the back of Susan Strasberg’s neck — that’s more malignant than benign, and the fruitless efforts of her boyfriend, in the form of Tony Curtis, and a modern medicine man, in the from of Michael Ansara, to stop him until the patient manages to channel the inner-spirits of technology to send the massacring midget-man back to hell in a laser-disco light-show finale for the ages will definitely leave you boggling. For more on Girdler, The Manitou, and the rest of his catalog, I strongly suggest you check out this wonderful tribute site.
