Everyone Needs a Paycheck(1978)
My Kingdom for a Manitou(a spirit being of the Algonquin Native American Indians(initially)) or any spirit being contained by the energy of a living being or even 1970's style computers, which were not known for being user friendly. That being said this film is a tribute to that kind of thinking. So far Karen Tandy(Susan Strasberg)psychic has a tumor or something growing on or out of her back. Harry Erskine(Tony Curtis) wants to help and seeks out a counter shaman John Singing Rock(Michael Ansara) in a non-threatining role, he usually plays a heavy. As the story goes along things go from bad to worse when trying to remove that nasty ol' Manitou with a "lazer." Then the entire ward gets cold and frozen , albeit without the theme to Lauras' Song.Then Tony C. tries to stop Mr. M by throwing an unthawed TYPEWRITER at him. Pretty heavy stuff. But Mr. M calls up "Satan" and the special effects kick in, 1970's disco effects. You can guess the rest.. 1,5 stars out of 5. Everyone needs a paycheck, almost eveyone...Plenty of guest cameos Burgess Meredith, Ann Southern, Tony Curtis, Michael Ansara...
Love this movie! Want it on DVD! It explores the very unique world of Native American lore.
Not available in Canada
Unfortunately I can't watch this horror movie since it is not available on Canadian TV only US.
Tony Curtis in the 1970's
This movie literally just started about 20 minutes ago, it's interesting to see Tony Curtis in the late 70's as opposed to the 50's or even the 60's. he listens to Disco (even dances a little) but I have to admit, and this is probably just a reflection of the era, but the movie is a bit corny, and this one probably makes Mr. Curtis cringe a little when he knows it's coming on anywhere.
A classic suspense/horror flick
This is one of the most scariest movies I have ever seen!
