With the 1980s came the growth of the personal video camera market. With the growth of the market came an influx of low-budget films made by amateur filmmakers who did not have a deep knowledge of how to make films. With this new wave of low-budget films came an abundance of low-budget horror that … Continue reading

Abby-1974-movie-William-Girdler-4

SYNOPSIS:

Abby, a wholesome young woman becomes possessed by the Nigerian god, Eshu.

But, shortly after its initial run, American International got sued by Warner Bros. for ripping off THE EXORCIST. Warner Bros. won the case, and ABBY, as a result, became … Continue reading
