Mock Squid Soup: October Trivia Teaser


Today, for this month's Mock Squid Soup, all society members are invited to post three hints for their choice of film this month. All are welcomed to guess. My three clues:

- This independent film from 1962 has been cited as an important influence for films directed by David Lynch and George A. Remero.

- This movie cost $33,000, thus it relies on atmosphere more than special effects to create a foreboding mood.

- The director was an educational video director by trade, but decided to try something new after inspiration struck while he was on a business trip.

Any guesses? Society reviews will be posted next Friday, October 9. See you then!

    1. I first saw the movie in April on Offbeat Cinema, someone at the center made me a copy of it, and I love it! I'd recommend. Before Offbeat Cinema, I never heard of it either.

      Love,

    1. The copyright has ran out on the film, so one could watch the whole thing on YouTube! The guy at the senior center who made me the copy downloaded it from somewhere. I recommend!
