Today is the final day of the Hugo Stiglitz Makes Movies 3rd Annual Italian Horror Blogathon. This is one of my favorite ‘thons, it’s something I look forward to every year, and I can guarantee you that the entries this year are phenomenal! Check them out here at the main links page. Kevin has also been posting some terrific entries this year, which you can find on his blogathon tag. When you come back in from your Halloween parties, spend some time with all the posts, I think you’ll be glad you did.
Last year, I had planned on doing Umberto Lenzi’s Orgasmo (1969, a.k.a. Paranoia), but my copy’s audio went bad and I had no time to get a new copy. I did some lesser Argento instead, determined to get Orgasmo this year. It’s a fascinating movie, one I very much want to blog about. But as I mentioned in my Lewton blogathon post earlier today, both my website and my computer have been down, and that lost time means my post will be after the ‘thon is over. I had scheduled all my Spectrum deadlines and SBBN posts carefully, but once everything broke the hell down I lost the days I had set aside for my Orgasmo post.
My apologies to Kevin. Next year, I will be a total superstar and everything will go without a hitch, promise. In the meantime, everyone, go read the Italian Horror Blogathon entries!
