Podcast: Decades of Horror 1970′s Eps 010 – The Manitou (1978)

“Evil Does Not Die…It Waits…to be Re-Born.” The tag line for The Manitou (1978) promises the birth of a modern horror classic monster. The re-release of William Girdler’s film reveals a number of its more prominent influences, “Possession marked The Exorcist. Demonaic Pregenacy arupted Rosemary’s Baby. Warnings followed The Omen. And The Manitou has it all combined!” The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.
