Terror Tuesday Forecast: The Manitou


Posted by:

The roots of my excitement for this week’s film are threefold. First, it was directed by William Girdler who also directed Terror Tuesday alums Day of the Animals and Grizzly. I love both of these films wholeheartedly and the chance to see another entry from his canon is one I wouldn’t dare miss. Also, if you aren’t intrigued on some level by the plot synopsis of The Manitou alone, I weep for your having been born bereft of awesomeness. It’s about a tumor growing on a woman that turns out to be a Native American demon trying to return to our dimension. If that sentence didn’t convince you to see this film, read it again. And finally, I have tried to watch this film on three separate occasions and, through a series of unfortunate interruptions, have yet to be able to finish it. This week I will rectify this for good and all, and in 35mm no less. Peep the trailer below…
