This, alas, will be my last post for 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 was science-fiction, and we’ll be leaning hard toward the “mad science” portion of the genre, here’s another exception. 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!

Stalk ‘n’ SlashCinema :: Proto-Slashers :: If This Picture Doesn’t Make Your Skin Crawl, It’s On Too Tight! (November, 1975)

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.
