                              The Satanic Rites of Dracula is a 1974 Hammer Horror film directed by Alan Gibson, and starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee.

                              The film is the eighth Hammer film featuring Dracula in the title, and the seventh film to star Lee in the title role, and a sequel to Dracula AD 1972, with action which follows up on the previous Hammer Dracula film without being dependent on it.

                              The original score was composed by television composer John Cacavas. In the United States, the film was distributed as Count Dracula and His Vampire Bride. It is also marketed with the tagline “Evil begets evil on the Sabbath of the undead!”

                                Messiah of Evil , aka “Dead People”, is a film made in 1971 by Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz. This husband and wife team was also behind the film version of Howard the Duck as well as the screenplay for American Graffiti. Quite a contrast in the quality of entertainment produced. Messiah of Evil probably falls more towards the former than the latter, but 70’s horror fans should enjoy this flick.

                                  Amarcord (di Federico Fellini, 1973) by gmaria2

                                  Amarcord is a 1973 Italian drama film directed by Federico Fellini, a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age tale that combines poignancy with bawdy comedy. It tells the story of a wild cast of characters inhabiting the fictional Borgo based on Fellini’s hometown of Rimini in 1930s Fascist Italy. Amarcord is Romagnolo for “I remember”.

                                  Titta’s sentimental education is emblematic of Italy’s “lapse of conscience”. Fellini skewers Mussolini’s ludicrous posturings and those of a Catholic Church that “imprisoned Italians in a perpetual adolescence” by mocking himself and his fellow villagers in comic scenes that underline their incapacity to adopt genuine moral responsibility or outgrow foolish sexual fantasies.

                                    The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, and was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Director and Best Writing, Original Screenplay.
