Aro Favourite Sadist, The


USA 1963, 91 minutes, B/W
Dir. James Landis
Rating: [M]
Genres: Cult, Suspense/Crime / Psycho


Aroview: Like BADLANDS, this little-known drive-in flick is based on the infamous Starkweather murder spree of the late 50s, and is never less than totally committed to unnerving its audience.

Taut direction builds a convincing sense of dread and helplessness as merciless villain (Arch Hall Jnr.) and his girlfriend hold three passers-by at gunpoint at a deserted pit stop. Visuals by future A-list cinematographer Vilmos Zigmond is another bonus.
