Movie Review – Encounters Of The Spooky Kind

Encounters Of The Spooky Kind (Gui da gui) Hong Kong (1980) Dir. Sammo Hung We know courtesy of Steven Spielberg that the (close) encounter of the third kind involves aliens, so where in the order do encounters of a supernatural flavour come? First? Second?

Movie Review – The Third Eye

The Third Eye (Il terzo occhio) Italy (1966) Dir. Mino Guerrini Would having three eyes really be helpful?
