In Dutch Only. Here's a gross out film from Holland that should satisfy the jaded ones in the
audience. Colette is a demented young woman who lives in a HELLRAISER-like place where she

that are direct steals from the first two ALIEN films.

Swamp Of The Ravens Add to Shopping Cart
Manuel Cano 1974
Fernando Sancho
Without a doubt one of the creepiest Spanish horror films I have ever seen. A crazy doctor is
performing reanimation experiments in the middle of the Florida swamps. He begins to have
success just as the police and locals close in on him. The scenes of zombies rising from the
swamp creeped me out and an there's an autopsy scene that's all too real. Director Manuel
Cano has a made a weird little film to say the least

1978
Jack Taylor
A young girl is troubled by loud sounds and the vision of a scary man in black walking toward

meeting, the girl cold-cocks the doctor and knocks her ass around the room. Eventually, she
kills her own mother (it's ruled an accident) and moves in with the doctor who ultimately pays a
high price for trying to cure her. This film eschews the overt graphic imagery of most
EXORCIST-clones and goes for a more subtle approach. Jack Taylor plays a medical colleague
who feels shock treatments are the only way to cure the kid. Too bad no one listened to him!
