Mick Garris on

Scream and Scream Again

Released 1970
Distributor AIP

Reputedly a favorite of Fritz Lang, this is an oddly structured sci-fi horror spy movie that anticipates a number of later horror trends. Fans tend to either love it or hate it, but it does provide a welcome break from the increasingly formulaic genre films of the period. Peter Cushing is misidentified in this trailer. Didn’t the promo people watch these things?

About Mick Garris
