Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
Dir: Dario Argento
Dario Argento's mastery of the giallo is clear in this stylish thriller, which is among the writer-director's most violent - and erotic. In Rome to promote his new novel, a murder mystery writer (Anthony Franciosa) learns that his work has inspired a serial slasher who targets women. As the author teams with the police to find the killer, the blood flows as freely as the plot twists in this oft-censored "video nasty," which includes some of Argento's most dazzling set pieces. Goblin keyboardist Claudio Simonetti, guitarist Massimo Morante and bassist Fabio Pignatelli reunited to create the suspenseful soundtrack. With John Saxon and Daria Nicolodi.

Marlon Brando stars as Matt Fletcher, a Mexican-American buffalo hunter at odds with ominous local bandit general Chuy Medina (John Saxon). It’s the last straw for Matt when Chuy steals his appaloosa horse, and he sets out for revenge - even if it means singlehandedly taking on all of Chuy’s ruthless gang in the process. Saxon received a Golden Globe nomination for his supporting turn.

Widely hailed as the legendary Bruce Lee’s finest film, ENTER THE DRAGON also helped break down the doors of American mainstream culture for the martial arts genre. Spectacular nonstop kung fu action as Lee and co-stars John Saxon, Jim Kelly, Bolo Yeung and Robert Wall compete in a deadly martial arts tournament on the island fortress of drug overlord Han (the deliciously evil Kien Shih). With memorable dialogue - "Boards don’t hit back!" - by screenwriter Michael Allin, and a killer score by Lalo Schifrin (TV’s "Mission Impossible").
