Maniacal Movie Poster Monday #138!

Curucu, Beast of the Amazon  (Universal International, 1956)

This movie was a long time showing up on Channel 30's Creature Feature - and after I saw it I think I know why other movies were on their third showing before this one showed up - SPOILER ALERT - there's no damn monster! It's a native in a costume trying to scare the interlopers off. Listen, if I want to watch Scooby Doo I'll watch it in color and with a Great Dane in it! WTH were you thinking, Curt Siodmak? Great poster, though.

Jennifer  (American International Pictures, 1978)

I haven't seen this Carrie ripoff featuring snakes (which has the cojones to compare itself to the other movie right on the poster) but you know I'd sit right down with it given the chance!

The Black Cat  (Universal Studios, 1934)

This is probably my favorite Karloff/Lugosi pairing. It's the wildest, with crazy Art Deco sets, and Karloff and Lugosi barely managing to restrain themselves from leaping at each other through the entire running time. And to top it off - you get Lugosi's immortal dialogue - in response to a guy talking about "All that supernatural baloney!" Lugosi responds: "Supernatural? Perhaps. Baloney? Perhaps not!"

Until tomorrow's post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!


  1. That first one reminds me of "The Village." Very disappointing.
