ABC Friday Night Movie

ABC's Friday Night Movie always seemed to be some kind of science fiction or supernatural fair from 1975 to at least 1982. This list is to try and identify those films a lot of which were made for TV movies. Just added films shown 1975-76 season and not sure if all of them are right.(If you can help me please do so!)
