Ten angry men: George C., Kirk, the Duke, Jack, Bobby D., Ray Burr, Robert Ryan, Clint, Lee Marvin, and Moe
Scott Marks 1 p.m., May 24
There isn't a lot of it, but the scary stuff in this cold-blooded horror movie is unusually nasty. It isn't the special-effects gore that is so hard to take; it is the infinite insincerity underneath. The crowning touch is when director Michael Winner, never touted as a humanist, but never before unmasked as such a carnival sideshow huckster, gathers together a group of authentic freaks with no other intent than to give you the heebie-jeebies. With Cristina Raines, Chris Sarandon, Ava Gardner, Burgess Meredith, and Sylvia Miles. 1977.
