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.

The Spirit is Willing was my personal introduction to the kookie and ghoulish world of William Castle, seen many, many moons ago at the old Rivoli theater during some weekend matinee re-release in the early 1970’s. Before finally seeing it again, all I really remembered about it was a family moving into a haunted house, where a love-triangle-entangled trio of ghosts still lurk and cause all kinds of mischief; but the strongest and most impressionable image to four or five year old me was a slow-motion meat-cleaver massacre that explains the reason for the ghosts — and probably goes a long, long way in explaining my slightly bent taste in film. And for that, Mr. Castle, I am eternally grateful to you for properly corrupting my childhood.
