Welcome to another special edition of Lisa Marie’s favorite Grindhouse and Exploitation film trailers!
Today, for her music video of the day post, Val took a look at the video for Josh Ritter’s The Evil Eye. I’m the one who suggested that video to her. Little did I know that it would lead to her watching a handful of films, all of which were either titled Evil Eye or, at the very least, has a connection to eyes that might have been evil!
So, in honor of Val’s commitment to her craft, I decided that today’s six trailers would be for six movies that Val either watched or mentioned in her review of The Evil Eye! Unfortunately, it turns out that not all of those movies have trailers on YouTube. And I already shared the trailer for Mario Bava’s The Girl Who Knew Too Much (a.k.a. Evil Eye) last week.
Let’s see what I did find!
- Bruka, Queen of Evil (1973)
I could not find a trailer for Queen of Evil. However, when I did a search for “Queen of Evil Trailer,” one of the trailers that came up was for Bruka, Queen of Evil. I’ve never heard of this film before but it looks like something some of our readers would like.
2. Manhattan Baby (1982)
However, YouTube did have a trailer for Lucio Fulci’s Manhattan Baby, which was also known as Evil Eye. Actually, Evil Eye was probably a better title for it. I’m one of the few people willing to defend this film and even I’m unsure just what exactly Manhattan Baby is supposed to mean.
3. The Green Inferno (1988)
Val’s search for information about The Evil Eye led her to Bloody-Disgusting.com, which featured an infamous review of The Green Inferno. Here’s the trailer for 1988’s Green Inferno, which should not be mistaken for Eli Roth’s Green Inferno.
4. The Green Inferno (2015)
Here’s the trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno, which I have long defended as being a political satire.
5. The Wicker Man (1973)
Among the films cited as an inspiration for The Evil Eye video was the original Wicker Man! This is a classic, even without bees.
6. Evil Eye (2014)
Finally, though I couldn’t find a trailer for 1975’s Evil Eye, I did find a trailer for this 2014 Evil Eye!
