The atmosphere of fear which descended on Boston in the early 1960s is chillingly re-created in Richard Fleischer's compelling and disturbing look into the mind of a psychopath. Also starring Henry Fonda, George Kennedy and Sally Kellerman. 1/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow

Cured of her belief that she is a killer, stripper Anita emerges from the asylum, only to plunge into a nightmare of murder and mayhem when she flashjs the flesh at Gypsy Rose's sin bin. The plot may not make sense, but no one seems to care as the frenzied bloodbath just gets more and more weird. 2/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow

The story of a cannibalistic maniac who kills every full moon gets the all- stops-out treatment from a cast who would become horror favourites. Fay Wray was yet to scream at King Kong and Lionel Atwill soon found a regular job in Universal's famous horror cycle. Directed by Michael Curtiz 3/3 Previews + Today PALPlus Films tomorrow
