    2. Patrick, just so I'm not rocking the boat too much, what qualifies as a scary movie for scary movie month? Does it need to be a horror movie or can it simply be a movie that uses horror movie conventions?

    2. Perhaps the most horrific aspect of the film is Roger Vadim's ineptitude. Casting Jane and Peter Fonda as love interests? What about those costumes?

    4. I'm glad I watched it because there are some very attractive people on display and Terence Stamp is great as always...but it just didn't really do much for me. You're right about the Jane and Peter Fonda thing. I literally started doubting everything I thought I knew and asked myself "Wait...were they husband and wife and NOT brother and sister?!?"
