SCREAM OF FEAR
1961, Sony Repertory, 81 min, Dir: Seth Holt

Director Seth Holt’s first Hammer Studios effort tracks wheelchair-bound Penny (Susan Strasberg), who returns to her family’s French Riviera estate after her mother’s untimely death. Handsome chauffeur Bob (Ronald Lewis) and sinister Dr. Gerrard (Christopher Lee) enter the mix, and someone seems bent on driving Penny over the edge into madness or, worse, death!


THE RESIDENT
2010, Image Entertainment, 91 min, Dir: Antti Jokinen

Juliet (Academy Award winner Hilary Swank) gets the unnerving feeling she is not alone in her new “perfect” New York apartment. But how can she stop an evil she can't see, or even prove exists? Jeffrey Dean Morgan and screen legend Christopher Lee costar in this pulse-pounding shocker from famed horror studio Hammer Films.


THE EXORCIST
1973, Warner Brothers, 121 min, Dir: William Friedkin

Friedkin adapted William Peter Blatty’s bone-chilling best-seller into the classic American horror film in which Catholic priests Jason Miller and Max von Sydow go head-to-head with the unholy one, inhabiting the body of young Linda Blair. "I auditioned 500 girls and went with Linda because I felt she was the most intelligent, most pulled-together youngster I had ever met." - Friedkin. With Ellen Burstyn.
