NIGHT OF THE STRANGLER

Joy N. Houck, Jr., USA, 1972, AGFA, Cult

“It's sort of like the natural meeting place between GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER and POOR PRETTY EDDIE. And as batshit as that sounds.
— Justin LaLiberty, LETTERBOXD

Directed by Joy N. Houck Jr. (NIGHT OF BLOODY HORROR, CREATURE FROM BLACK LAKE), NIGHT OF THE STRANGLER is a southern-friend whodunnit hatewave featuring, murder, racial tension, and a starring role from The Monkees’ Micky Donlenz. This sweat-soaked, sleazoid slay-ride was originally marketed as a semi-slasher, but is more like a cross between a giallo and a trashy airport paperback: guns! Knives! Drowning! Venomous snakes! Absolutely zero strangling!
