"LEGEND" WOLF LODGE
GRAEME CAMPBELL
NICHOLAS STILLADA
JESSE BALLARD

(into the fire; legend of wolf lodge; legend of lone wolf; wolf night) (1987 CANADA US) A young guitarist (Lee Montgomery, the child star of BEN) arrives in a small snow-covered town and accepts a job working for Art Hindle and his seemingly-neglected wife Susan Anspach at their big house. He starts dating waitress Olivia D'Abo and also has an affair with Anspach, eventualy plotting to kill Hindle for her. It all results in plot twists and a tragic ending that most people will see coming a mile off.
"MANOS": THE HANDS OF FATE
HAROLD P. WARREN
HAROLD P. WARREN
HAROLD P. WARREN

(1966 US) MANOS, a no-budget legend made by a fertilizer salesman in El Paso is so static and non-eventful that it's almost surreal. A man (Warren), woman, little daughter and dog drive for a very long time before they stop at some shack in the middle of nowhere. A semi-crippled creep called Torgo attends to them while rambling about "the master", who eventualy turns out to be a devil worshipper with his own temple and multiple wives (who have a really long catfight). The "surprise" ending is so pathetic it's almost worth suffering through MANOS for. Masochists apply here.

RALPH NELSON
RALPH NELSON / JAMES LEE BARRETT
JAMES LEE BARRETT

(1970 US) A southern town in the midst of a blistering summer becomes a hotbed of racial tension when the first black sheriff is to be appointed. That sheriff is Jim Brown. George Kennedy is at his best as the old sheriff who doesn't know what to do with his time. Don Stroud is a particularly horrible racist redneck. With Fredric March as the mayor, Bernie Casey, Dub Taylor, Almira Sessions and the ultimate southern hick film persona, Clifton James. This underrated gem is top notch in every way and is far superior to Nelson's much more famous SOLDIER BLUE from the same year. Recommended.
