I am struck flipping through Caelum Vatnsdal's fascinating history of Candian Horror films, THEY CAME FROM WITHIN, by how many obscure horror films from the sixties, seventies and eighties that I still need to see. It is always exciting to be reminded that it is impossible to run out of films to watch.
Of the many titles popping out to me in this book, I must say that none sound more appealing to me than Ivan Reitman's 1973 film CANNIBAL GIRLS. After watching the trailer on YouTube, I absolutely need to see this movie right now. Reitman has never been a favorite, although I love STRIPES, but this film looks like one I could fall in love with.
This AIP distributed film might very well not live up to my expectations for it but I am now on a mission to track it down. There are several things I need in this life; a roof over my head, coffee in the morning, a time machine, my cat to talk, an evening with Asia Argento and to see this movie.
