The Manitou is a much better film, so I went with it. But Scalps is also so much fun...and so bad!
Oh, dear... I actually bought that Manitou DVD when it came out last year, because I wanted to see if I would still be as disappointed in it as I was in childhood, after reading Masterton...
I was. And the ending... better not to speak of it. Unbelievably enough, I later read that Girdler was supposedly most proud of that ridiculous end sequence, and he compared it to "Star Wars"...
But as for that other title, though I haven't seen it - and having looked it up, I do not plan to - I suspect that it's much worse, considering who its director is...
the manitou is better
The Manitou, hands down! Tony Curtis is awesome in this with his over the top 70's wardrobe. The scene where he removes his fake moustache after a scam psychic reading and gets down to hardcore disco while drinking Schlitz is priceless! Susan Strasberg, Michael Ansara, and Burgess Meredith all have cool roles. I love director William Girdler's films. He also did Day of the Animals, Grizzly, Asylum of Satan, and plenty others.
