Peripheral Visions, a co-presentation of the Belcourt Theatre and Third Man Records, will screen at the Belcourt for the next few months, while we take a brief hiatus from its original home in Third Man’s Blue Room. Join us as we continue to celebrate the very best of underappreciated genre films from the 70s and 80s.
Frank Zito (in a career performance by co-writer/co-executive producer Joe Spinell of ROCKY and THE GODFATHER fame) is a deeply disturbed man, haunted by the traumas of unspeakable childhood abuse. And when these horrific memories begin to scream inside his mind, Frank prowls the seedy streets of New York City to stalk and slaughter innocent young women. Now Frank has begun a relationship with a beautiful photographer (Caroline Munro of THE SPY WHO LOVED ME), yet his vile compulsions remain. These are the atrocities of a human monster. This is the story of a MANIAC.
Directed by William Lustig (MANIAC COP, VIGILANTE) and featuring landmark gore effects by Tom Savini (DAWN OF THE DEAD, FRIDAY THE 13th), this relentlessly shocking and disturbing film was originally censored all over the world due to its graphic violence. (Synopsis courtesy of Blue Underground)
