Wow, great, insightful review James! I caught the end of this on TV when I was a kid and always wondered what movie it was. I’m really going to miss Monser Madness after this year but know you’ll just keep cranking out awesome content. Thanks!

I think it’s worth mentioning that the sniper storyline was based on the Charles Whitman shooting at the University of Texas a couple of years prior to Targets’ release. As you said though, it was definitely a response to the fears of the real world. Great review.

Good grief, I want to watch Monster Madness, not an ad for a sissy soccer game or an ad featuring frumps and their cats.

“The world is changing” – it’s getting more violent. That’s a false perception people have. The world has always been violent. There has always been murder. Nothing is changing.

No shit there has always been murder. Everybody knows that. But to say that “nothing is changing” is flat-out incorrect.

Wonder if the car shooting was an inspiration to the beltway snipers?

The Drive-In was located in Reseda California in the good ol San Fernando Valley. I grew up not very far from there in Northridge and Chatsworth. My local Drive-In was the Winnetka 6 in Chatsworth. The great times I had at Winnetka are wonderful memories. I need to check this film out now. It looks great. Boris Karloff is in it, that alone justifies everything.

Intersting film. By far the best scene is Karloff vs the sniper. Honestly, that murderous fuck deserved to slapped around a hell of a lot more.

I’m definitely picking up a copy of this one. Looks good.
