Wicked, Wicked (’73)

Tonight on TCM, it’s time to get Wicked, Wicked (’73.) Synopsis: A masked murderer is loose at a seacoast hotel, targeting blondes and dismembering them.



Filmed in Anamorphic "Duo-vision," a split-screen technique also used by Brian De Palma, most notably in "Sisters" from the same year, this is a real one of a kind horror film oddity… check TCM for more info and show times in your area!

And click HERE for the awesome trailer!

This is a very good proto-slasher if i can recall correctly,i think i may have taped it,but i'll check.

Based on the trailer, I've gotta say that doing the weekly laundry might be more exciting than watching that turkey.

The lead actors talents are less than stellar also!

I saw this years ago and loved it, I'm sure it'll be more campy goof than anything now, but man the fantastic trailer really brought back alot of memories. I remember at the time my mom and dad going bonkers because of the split screen duo-vision gimmick, like they couldn't understand how to watch it or something.

I'll take Tiffany Bolling over the weekly laundry anyday......and I for one do not watch films like this for stellar acting. Just kick back an enjoy the cheese, it's loaded!

I spoke with the director, Richard Lee Bare and he wanted it filmed in Parascope. He disliked the term, Duo-vision. He came up with the idea for the story while gazing at two sides of the highway! I highly recommend this film. It really made me think.
