Terror Train is another slasher that proved a lot better than I remembered it being when I watched it again about a year ago. But while the movie was enjoyable, the ads for it’s first run kinda stink. Yeah, the quality of the old Conestoga Four ad mats definitely took a nose dive when the 1980’s hit, with these hastily hacked and pasted together montages, which is both embarrassing and kinda sucks for ad hunters like myself. Feh.

This lurid and highly provocative art for Black Christmas was a revelation to me, as I had never seen it before until unearthing these ads. I was only familiar with the iconic image of the dead girl in the attack that was featured in the poster campaign, but this is amazing. However, they only got away with that ad once, and only once. (Once more, your local censors at work.) Known by many names before it found any cinematic footing, Bob Clark’s seminal Proto-Slasher has grown on me over the years. Yeah, the first time through I found it too slow and too deliberate, and that obtuse ending had me winging the rental case at the TV. (I guess my skin was on too tight back then, ‘natch.) Now, some 25 years later, one can truly appreciate this Creepy McMoody effort that helped secure a beachhead for a whole new species of cinematic thriller.

Man-Eater is actually a Samuel Fuller retread from 1969, re-released in 1975 for SOME reason.  It was originally released as either Shark, Caine or Twist of the Knife depending on which source you’re consulting. The film is somewhat notorious because a stuntman was actually killed by a shark while filming. And perhaps not in the most tasteful of moves, the producers decided to tout that fact in the initial ad campaigns, a decision that, along with some extensive re-editing, caused Fuller to disavow the film altogether.
