Fango editor Chris Alexander’s Film School Confidential
screening series in Toronto continues on Thursday, August 18 with a vintage
35mm screening of legendary gimmick master William (THE TINGLER) Castle’s
delirious post-PSYCHO trash thriller HOMICIDAL (1961) a violent, mean and fun
flick that might just be his best film.
HOMICIDAL is a Hitchcock-tinged venture into overheated
Gothic melodrama, sexual taboo and—for the time—surprisingly graphic murder. It
features the infamous final-reel “Fright Break,” a prime bit of Castle
showmanship that stops the film dead to allow easily spooked viewers to run for
the “Coward’s Corner” and get a refund. Film School Confidential promises no
such refund, but we do promise a solid night of vintage camp thrills,
Fango wants to give Toronto-area horror fans a chance to see
this special 35mm screening, which takes place on the 18th at 9 p.m. at the
Revue Cinema (400 Roncesvalles Avenue), for free; Castle’s daughter Terry will
be calling in to say hello and help introduce her dad’s masterwork. The first
