The Killing Kind

According to: DVD Drive-In, on Nov. 20th, Darksy Films will release one of my all time favorites: The Killing Kind, a twisted little psychological thriller by the late, great, Curtis Harrington, director of Night Tide, What's the Matter With Helen?, Ruby, Queen of Blood, among many other genre favorites.

The Killing Kind (1973) stars a young John Savage (The Deer Hunter) as a 21-year-old just released from prison for a rape (he didn't really commit) who lives with his smothering, doting, mother (Ann Southern) who runs a boarding house for women. And yes, the ladies start showing up dead... The movie features a great supporting cast: Cindy Williams, Ruth Roman and Luana Anders. I just love this one. It's perverse and perfect.
