No, “The Final Weekend” is not the name of a slasher movie (that I’m aware of, but maybe it should be). It’s here, folks. We made it (almost). The last weekend of Summer of Slash 2017.

You probably haven’t watched today’s SoS installment either: Tourist Trap. Just to torture you more, here are a bunch of creepy mannequins I found on the internet.
aka The Girl Who Knew Too Much, Mario Bava’s Evil Eye is considered the first giallo film. It’s entertaining. And it stars two of the most beautiful people in the world:John Saxon and Leticia Roman. The whole time I was watching this I kept thinking: My God. If these two fornicated, they would have the … More #SummerOfSlash 2017: Evil Eye
