STRANGE SHADOWS IN AN EMPTY ROOM
UNA MAGNUM SPECIAL PER TONY SAITTA
1976, Park Circus/MGM, 99 min, Italy/Canada, Dir: Alberto De Martino

Stuart Whitman stars as an Ottawa police captain looking for the person who poisoned his sister. But when the constraints of the law restrain his investigation, he goes rogue using brutality to get answers.

DEMONOID
1981, Vinegar Syndrome, 78 min, USA, Dir: Alfredo Zacarias

A mining mishap in Mexico unlocks an ancient curse of a demon that only possesses people’s left hand. Once it takes hold of the appendage, it causes pain, suffering and gory death. The only way the possessed can free themselves is by cutting off their hand. In the tradition of Oliver Stone’s THE HAND and EVIL DEAD II comes the ultimate killer-hand film.


THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES
1965, 20th Century Fox, 132 min, UK, Dir: Ken Annakin

Stuart Whitman, Sarah Miles, Robert Morley, James Fox and the ever-delightful Terry-Thomas star as a group of lovably crack-pot aviators, inventors and villains competing to win a London-to-Paris air race in 1910, in director Ken Annakin’s irresistible combination of epic adventure and slapstick comedy.
