CURSE OF THE FLY - Bert Shefter - "Title Credits" (1965)

It's not often you get to see a woman in her bra and panties running across the screen as the opening credits are being rolled, well, at least not in 60's horror movies anyway, but indeed, in "Curse Of The Fly," that's exactly what you get, but of course, she's nuts!! We've written about Bert Shefter a lot because of his work on so many cool films, but he also wrote the music for, count 'em, 133 "Hawaiian Eye" TV episodes, the film "Faster, PussyCat! Kill! Kill!" and much more! 
Another interesting sidenote is that the father of modern Nigerian Art Music, composer Fela Sowande also shared some of the musical composition credits, and I think it shows! Fela is probably the most internationally known African composer of classical music, and this basically is the only film he ever composed music for! 
"Judith?!" "Judith!?" 
Stan Simmons as the 'big ugly guy' had a cool career in film as prison guard, thug, warrant officer and Rag "n" Bone Man, and is creepy as all get out!

My favorite critique of this film goes: “Any movie that begins with a deformed girl crashing through a window and running through the woods in her underwear CAN’T be good!”
