Double Feature on std 8mm

The first was a creepy little thriller entitled "DEVIL DOLL", telling the tale of a ventriloquist with extraordinary powers and
whose doll is alive. It starred Bryant Halliday, William Sylvester, Yvonne Romain and the lovely blonde Sandra Dorne.
Distributed by Derann many moons ago, it does surface now and again on the secondhand circuit. Halliday, who starred in
another of Derann's releases, "The Projected Man", waived his fee and took profit share instead, he was an academic,
a scholar who taught Greek and Latin, studied for the priesthood, studied Law at Harvard and established his own film distribution company in the US.

The second film is the Vampire/witchcraft horror "Devils of Darkness", another from Derann, I think Powell Films did a super 8 version later. This also stars William Sylvester, Hubert Noel, Carole Gray and the niece of Sir Carol Reed and cousin of Oliver, Tracey Reed.
It is a slow burn of a film, but is pleasant enough, nothing to give one nightmares.

Hugh ... Those prints look in great condition considering how old they are now. Picture quality good too.
I love Standard 8mm.

Truth be told David, both are recent editions to my collection, the B/W was obtained from our own Barry of Indy 8,
the colour from a collector on ebay. I think the old gauge is my favoured of them all, maybe its nostalgia creeping in
but there is something about it that I love, granted the titles are not always "top dollar", but that doesn't seem to matter,
picture can be better than Super 8, depending on steps used in processing, the print of "Revenge of the Vampire" on std 8mm
stands head and shoulders above the shortened super 8 feature, it has far better contrast, which for these type films is important,
shadows etc. The print on S/8 seemed very light and weak, which I quickly sold on.
