A husband, (Morell), plots the death of his wife, but when she is killed her pet cat seems to be responsible for the vengeful killings of those who conspired against her.

Fuller disowned the film when it was taken away from him for re-editing.

(1965/Hammer/7 Arts) 105mins. UK.
Credits: Dir: Robert Day; Prod: Michael Carreras; A.Prod: Aida Young; Sc: David T. Chantler; Ph: Harry Waxman; Ed: James Needs & Eric Boyd Perkins; Art: Robert Jones & Don Mingaye; Sfx: George Blackwell & Roy Ashton; Choreo: Christine Lawson; Mus: James Bernard. From the story by H. Rider Haggard.

Leo is forced to wait another 2000 years before he can die.
A flashy Hammer production that loses some of the fascination of the novel until the climactic scene in which Ayeshea becomes mortal.

THE SHE BEAST (1965) see La Sorella di Satana

SHE CREATURE (1956/Golden State) 77mins. BW. US.
Credits: Dir: Edward L. Cahn; Prod: Alex Gordon; Ex.Prod: Samuel Z. Arkoff; Sc: Lou Rusoff; Ph: Frederick E. West; Ed: Ronald Sinclair; Art: Don Ament; Monster Des: Paul Blaisdell; Mus: Ronald Stein. From a story by Jerry Zigmund.

Fairground hypnotist Dr. Carlo Rambaldi, (Morris), can mesmerise his pretty young assistant Andrea, (English), to bring forth from the sea a murderous prehistoric creature that is actually Andrea herself from a previous life form. Lombardi makes a name for himself by controlling the creature through Andrea and predicting the murders it commits, but his fame is threatened when Andrea falls in love with the sceptical Professor Ted Ericson, (Fuller). Lombardi mesmerises Andrea and sends the monster to kill the professor, but because the creature is telepathically linked to the assistant it disobeys Lombardi and kills him before disappearing into the sea.
A low-budget '50's monster movie with good pacing and an enjoyable stroyline. The film was later remade as Creature of Destruction.
Originally double billed with It Conquered the World.
The same monster appeared with a different head in Voodoo Woman.

SHE DEMONS (1958/Screencraft/Astor) 80mins. BW.
Credits: Dir: Richard E. Cunha; Prod: Arthur A. Jacobs; Sc: Richard E. Cunha & H.E. Barrie; Ph: Meredith Nicholson; Ed: William Shea; Des: Harold Banks; Sfx: David Koehler; Mu: Carlie Taylor; Mus: Nicolas Carras.

Among the castaways is the pretty Jerri Turner, (McCalla), who Osler abducts, but American bombers decide to use the island as target practice killing the the doctor and his wife while the castaways make their escape.
A tedious and badly made mad scientist story, too inept to even be unintentionally amusing.

SHE DEVIL (1957/Regal) 77mins. BW.
Credits: Dir. & Prod: Kurt Neumann; Sc: Kurt Neumann & Carroll Young; Ph: Karl Struss; Ed: Carl Pierson; Art: Theobold Holsopple; Mus: Paul Sawtell & Bert Shefter. Based loosely on the short story "The Adaptive Ultimate" by John Jessel (Stanley G. Weinbaum).

SHE DEVILS ON WHEELS (1968/Mayflower) 83mins. US.
Credits: Dir. & Prod: Herschell Gordon Lewis; Ex.Prod: Fred M. Sandy; Sc: Louise Downe; Ph: Ray Collodi; Ed: Richard C. Brinkman; Des: Robert Enrietto; Song: Robert Lewis & Herschell Gordon Lewis.
Cast: Betty Connell, Pat Poston, Nancy Lee Noble, Christie Wagner, Rodney Bedell, Ruby Tuesday, John Weymer.
A gang of women bikers who hate men, dismember and mutilate every male they meet.
Although poorly made this has achieved minor cult status.

SHE FREAK (1966/Sonny-Friedman) 87mins.
Aka: FREAKS!; ALLEY OF NIGHTMARES.
Credits: Dir. & Ed: Byron Mabe; Prod. & Sc: David F. Friedman; A.Prod: Dan Sonney & D.I. Long; Ph: Bill Troiano & Andy Romanoff; Mu: Harry Thomas; Mus: Billy Allen.

When the owner discovers her affair with the ferris wheel operator he kills him and goes to prison, leaving her in charge of the freaks who she rules with sadistic discipline. After sacking Shorty the midget, the freaks turn on her, disfigure her and make her one of their own.
A slow paced film that ignores plot development for countless sequences of carnival footage which does nothing to relieve the boredom. Although a partial remake of Browning's Freaks, there is very little here to warrant a mention of the 1932 classic in the same breath.

SHE GODS OF SHARK REEF (1957/AIP.) 63mins. BW.
Credits: Dir: Roger Corman; Prod: Ludwig H. Gerber; Sc: Robert Hill & Victor Stoloff.

Johnny Barrett, (Breck), an ambitious investigative reporter conspires with his girlfriend to be committed to an insane asylum where he tries to uncover the identity of a murderer. During the course of his investigations, Johnny becomes insane himself.
America's failings have all been locked away in this gripping and moody message drama that tries for realism, but becomes rather pretentious instead. This has some of the best hallucination scenes put on film, one originally shown in colour.
Footage shot in 1955 remained on the shelf until the film could be completed.

SHONEN TANTEIDAN - KABUTOMUSHI NO YOKI & TETTO NO KAIJIN (1957/Toei) 113mins. Japan.

Years ago Susannah's uncle had chained Susannah's insane sibling in an upstairs room. There she remains looked after by her aging aunt.
An intriguing chiller thriller with a good cast, but the plot fails to cohesively solve the mystery.

DET SJUNDE INSEGLET (1957/AB Svensk Filmindustri Prod.) 95mins. BW. Sweden.
Aka: THE SEVENTH SEAL.
Credits: Dir. & Sc: Ingmar Bergman; Prod: Allen Ekelund; Ph: Gunnar Fischer; Ed: Lennart Wallen; Art: P.A. Lundgren; Mus: Erik Nordgren. From the play "Tramalning" by Ingmar Bergman.
Cast: Max Von Sydow, Gunner Bjornstrand, Bengt Ekerot, Nils Poppe, Bibi Andersson, Ake Fridell, Inga Gill, Erik Strandmark, Maud Hansson, Inga Landgre, Bertil Anderberg, Gunnel Lindblom, Anders Ek.
A knight named Antonius Block, (Von Sydow), returns from the crusades to find his land ravaged by the plague, the atmosphere thick with dread and the Day Of Judgement immanent with the opening of the Seventh Seal. On a bleak foreshore Block encounters Death, (Ekerot), who challanges him to a game of chess to spare his life long enough to ponder about God and his own existence which he has failed to do during his travels. The knight finally cheats Death by knocking over the playing pieces and saves himself and some travelling players.
Set in a dark world irrationally sustained by religion, this is one of cinema's finest representations of Death weaved with an exploration of the existence of God in a cruel and unforgiving world. Visually entrancing with bleached monochrome photography and a poetic styled interpretation of medieval brutality.
The famous dance sequence at the end of the film was actually improvised by Bergman after the day's filming was completed. He noticed a cloud formation on the horizon and helped the photographer ready his camera while grips, technicians and two visitors stood in for the actors who had gone home.

THE SKULL (1965/Amicus/Paramount) 90mins. UK.

One such dealer, (Wymark), offers Maitland the skull of the Marquis de Sade, but he later discovers it was stolen from his friend Matthew Philips, (Lee), who confesses that he was glad the skull was stolen and warns his friend of the deadly power it possesses.
An original idea is ploddingly developed with the occasional interesting camerashot through the eye sockets of the skull.
Cinema patrons were given promotional horror rings.

THE SLIME PEOPLE (1962/Hutton-Robertson Prod./Hanson) 60mins. BW. US.

Anything this low budget and badly scripted film might have had to it's credit is lost behind the constant fog that prevents an audience seeing the actors or the monsters.

SNUFF
(1970/Selected Pictures)
Credits: Dir: Michael & Roberta Findlay; Prod: Allan Shackerton.
"The film that could only be made in South America...where life is cheap!"
A woman hired to act in a film is conned by the director onto a bed and chopped to bits for the camera.
Filmed in Argentina, this began life as a poor $50 thousand porn film titled SLAUGHTER that sat on the shelf for several years before distributor Allan Shackleton who was inspired by the media attention given to the notorious Manson killings, tacked on a supposedly genuine murder scene, retitled the film and removed all the credits to make the source more mysterious. Unfortunately the effects are so bad that it convinced no one and remains just a poorly made and badly constructed thriller.
