comment on 10 great overlooked films from the 1970s by nicholas gregory schwab


if we are strictly talking about 'american' films from this time period.... here are some good horror films that have not been mentioned yet from this time period..... 1. messiah of evil (1973)-- a fine zombie mood piece. 2. let's scare jessica to death (1971)- a daydreamy horror film with a vibe akin to the story, the yellow wallpaper. 3. blood and lace (a fine and offfensive exploitation film.) 4. don't be afraid of the dark (1973, tv film)-- despite the (crappy) remake the original is underseen. but it is a great film, though. 5. alice, sweet alice (1976)-- one of the best slasher films ever. 6 & 7. helter skelter(1976)/ the deadly tower (1975)-- the manson film is somewhat known, but i was surprised it has so few votes on imdb. it's a great true crime film
