My Nominations: Beneath The Planet Of The Apes. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage. The Dunwich Horror.
No official category this year, as you well know, so you’ll have to put up with my picks scant as they are. There’s a wealth of crappy to average horror movies this year, The Dunwhich Horror just about scrapes by due to interesting ideas though it’s hackneyed and terribly dated now – decent make-up in places. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage is much better and not as gory and stylized as Argento’s later efforts. While Beneath The Planet Of The Apes doesn’t really advance the work achieved in the early entry in the series, it does offer some mutants as well as the apes, and is still my choice as winner.
My Winner: Beneath The Planet Of The Apes.
