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.
