The Manitou Playing on TCM Underground TONIGHT

Just a heads up: 1978's The Manitou is playing on Turner Classic Movies TCM UNDERGROUND late tonight/early tomorrow morning, starting "around 2 A.M."

The synopsis (taken from
When Karen is admitted to a San Francisco hospital because she has a tumor growing on her neck, the doctors come to believe that there is a fetus inside it. The growth is in fact an old, Indian shaman who is reincarnating himself through Karen, and when he begins to see himself under attack from the x-rays being used to examine him and stunt his growth, gruesome things start happening. The shaman is also out to avenge North American's indigenous people who were killed off by the invading white men. Once the identity of the Manitou is understood, another native American shaman is called in to control him, but is no match for his power.
Set your DVR's, hipsters!


  1. Whoever sees it for the first time is in for a treat!

  2. Watch "Simon of the Desert" too. Starts at 1PM (Eastern time). It's a great mini-film from Bunuel - trust me - it's a keeper.

  3. I love it when Tony Curtis calls the evil Misquamacus "Mixmaster"!!!


What do you got to say about it!?
