10-25-74, Greenview and High Point – Getting my files together has been a great adventure, but it sometimes provides some interesting results like this. Shriek of the Mutilated was one of the jaw-droppers of the VHS scene – yours truly among the renters – and it was a given that some viewers wondered where it wound up when it played the screens. On this day in ’74, it wound up at two of the Drive Ins noted by The Scene for the last few years, the Cedar Lake in Greenview and the Tar Heel in High Point (or Archdale to be technical). The Michael Findlay film has had it’s share of critics and fans and some very inspired advertising in it’s first year of playing, and around here it’s a given that a very low budget film following the short lived Bigfoot/Yeti trend set in upstate NY made by Michael Findlay (Richard Jennings of the Flesh Trilogy) deserves to be remembered on it’s own merits.
