    Corruption

    ★★★★

    Unbelievably ahead of its time, not just because it's the sort of jazz-scored giallo that Italy wouldn't start to do for a couple of years, but because of the home invasion at the end which appears to feature Han Solo, Roisin Conaty, Dr Evil and John Lennon dressed as Captain Birdseye.

    FIRST GRAVEDIGGER

    It must be "se offendendo"; it cannot be else. For
    here lies the point: if I drown myself…

    Sleepaway Camp

    ★★★½

    The most disturbing image in this movie isn't that final shot, it's the fact that Meg seems genuinely into the idea of shagging that rancid old camp owner.
