Horror Cinema: Shanks

Movie review
William Castle’s Shanks

I visited the Paramount Vault on Youtube for a free movie last night and found Shanks. If you have an evening to kill, this movie would be worth it. While the story is campy and wandering, it’s a thrill to watch the dead corpses animated by a puppeteer. The violence is timid enough that I could imagine it playing on late-night tv in the 80s. A total throwback!

Castle, William. Shanks, Paramount Pictures, 1974.
