Sansho the Bailiff (Sansho Dayu) (1954)

Humanoids from the Deep (1980)

Some very disturbing things are happening in the small fishing town of Noyo, California. A fishing boat blows ups without warning, the town’s dog population mysteriously winds up dead, and several residents seem to up and disappear out of thin air. The timing for all of this couldn’t be worse. They’re just days away from their annual Salmon Festival, and a new, though controversial, canning facility is set to start construction soon, something that’s set to bring more jobs to little Noyo. The canning company, Canco (no really, that’s the name) has even sent some VIPs to the town to drum up support, including one of its own scientists. But as more strange things continue to happen, it’s becoming apparent to some of the locals that Canco may already be more involved in the happenings of this small town than they’re letting on.

Portrait of Jennie (1948)

Yet another gift brought to you by TCM. It should be noted that is aired at 8pm, not my usual 2am viewing time, so the quality of this film is quite a bit better than some of the other write-ups I do with the ‘cult’ films TCM airs in the wee hours of the morning. […]
