Arrow Video USA unveils the AMERICAN HORROR PROJECT (review)

Arrow Video and NIGHTMARE U.S.A. author Stephen Thrower give a second life to three undeservedly obscure horror films of the seventies in the ambitious boxed set AMERICAN HORROR PROJECT.  In THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA, Millie Perkins (THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK) is a Santa Monica Pier barmaid whose repressed childhood memories drive her to seduce and kill men who remind her of her father.  In THE PREMONITION, a woman's nightmares may be the only way of finding her adopted daughter who has been taken by the girl's unstable mother and killer clown boyfriend.  Sharon Farrell and Richard Lynch star.  In MALATESTA'S CARNIVAL OF BLOOD, an amusement park on its last legs hides a cannibalistic cult who pray on the pockets and then the flesh of unsuspecting investors.
