After seeing the wonderful new movie Hitchcock in a theater and now seeing it again on Blu-Ray I thought it might be nice to revisit one of the Master of Suspense’s own films, preferably one I had not seen in some time. Family Plot was Sir Alfred’s last film and a pretty good finale to an amazing career that started in the silent era, an apprentice ship at Ufa Studio’s in Germany, watching no less a master film maker than Fritz Lang and ended in the 70’s when all the rules of film making were being broken by a bunch of young mavericks who changed the language of film altogether.

Even the casual horror fan has seen ‘70s horror films like Halloween and Jaws, but if you take a step away from the mainstream, there is a veritable candy store of titles that influenced the horror boom of the ‘80s. We’ve put together a list of slightly lesser known 1970s titles that we think every horror fan should see. We have steered clear of the obvious choices. So you will not see Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Alien, or even Black Christmas on our list. We have dug a little deeper to spotlight some titles that don’t always get the mainstream acclaim or recognition that they most certainly deserve.
Below, you will find an assortment of films that we think will give any viewer not intimately familiar with the horrors of the 1970s a good jumping off point to embrace one of the richest decades that horror cinema has to offer. »
