Archive Treasures-THE HAUNTED / THE UNKNOWN

Synopsis:

Friday February 25th 2011, 7:30PM (Free Admission)

THE HAUNTED (a.k.a. The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre) (1965)
Directed by Joseph Stefano
Martin Landau stars as a Los Angeles-based architect-cum-paranormal investigator who specializes in assessing and exorcising old homes. Stefano here weaves together vengeance, hallucinogens and a “bleeding ghost” in a gothic telefilm that was deemed too frightening to air by network executives. Stefano's only directorial effort, this extremely rare pilot never aired in the U.S. 16mm, b/w, 52 min.


THE UNKNOWN (1964) Directed by Gerd Oswald
With nods to Psycho and Clouzot’s Diabolique, The Unknown unleashes sadism and madness when a wealthy playboy lures two unsuspecting women into a house of horrors. With its nightmarish tone and art-film cinematography, The Unknown pilot was considered too off-beat by ABC and was retooled as an episode of Outer Limits. The original pilot is being screened tonight from a rare 35mm print. 35mm, B/W, 45 min.
