Wicked, Wicked

Set those DVRs for overnight Friday June 6 at 2AM. Turner Classic Movies has once again dug into its vaults for a cult classic and dug out the rarely aired Wicked, Wicked (1973). A slasher movie ahead of its time, it is about a psychotic hotel worker with a penchant for donning a mask and killing nubile long-haired blondes. Randy Roberts who went on to briefly play “Chuck Cunningham” on TV’s Happy Days is the maniac, Edd “Kookie” Byrnes is a lifeguard, and the blondes in peril include Fantasy Femme Diane McBain and Tiffany Bolling. It was directed by Richard L. Bare who was best known at the time for directing epiosdes of Green Acres and filmed in Duo-Vision a split screen process where as the ads proclaimed, “See the hunter, see the hunted – both at the same time!”
