Last time on Weird Movie of the Week, we covered a guy who killed Hitler, and then Bigfoot. This time, we’ve got The Manitou, which I discovered reading Brian Collins’s Horror Movie A Day: The Book. His brief “synopsis based on fading memory” sounds glorious:
A woman gets a weird growth on her shoulder. As is often the case, it turns out to be a fetus.
And not just any fetus, but “a 400 year-old demonic Native American” fetus. And if that’s not enough, the trailer hints at even more bizarre happenings, including Tony Curtis randomly screaming “John!” and a door opening to a starscape or something.
Next week begins the fabled Six Weeks of Halloween, so get strapped in… up first is some Italian horror/Giallos…
