SUDDEN IMPACT
1983, Warner Bros., 117 min, USA, Dir: Clint Eastwood

A vigilante is targeting male criminals from San Francisco to sleepy (and fictional) San Paulo and shooting them in their manhoods. “Dirty” Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) takes the case. But as he digs deeper, he discovers things aren’t as clear-cut - as the facts unfold, Harry finds himself empathizing with the killer. To further muddy the waters, he meets a local artist named Jennifer who might be the one behind the trigger. Costarring Sondra Locke.


PSYCHO III
1986, Universal, 93 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Perkins

Anthony Perkins directs and stars in this final theatrical installment of the PSYCHO saga. As Norman Bates, he’s still dealing with the fallout from the last group of killings in the form of a nosy journalist and a disgruntled motel employee. On the plus side, he’s fallen in love with a suicidal nun (Diana Scarwid) - but Norman’s overprotective mother never did think much of his taste in women.


WHITE DOG
1982, Paramount, 89 min, USA, Dir: Sam Fuller

Virtually unseen outside of a few retrospective screenings, this film is the story of “a four-legged time bomb,” a powder-white German shepherd trained to attack black people. In a fit of inspired casting, teen queen Kristy McNichol (TV’s "Family") stars as the dog’s owner - but the film really belongs to Paul Winfield as an Ahab-like animal trainer, obsessed with de-programming the dog. Music by spaghetti Western composer Ennio Morricone.
