Joining us to wrap up our 7th year is our “Final Guy,” Mike Wood, with three weeks of “California Screaming: West Coast Cult Horror.” Mike, a historian and archaeologist by profession—and expert on Indonesian culture, history and politics—has been devouring films like PSYCH-OUT (1968), COUNT YORGA, VAMPIRE (1970), and MEPHISTO WALTZ (1971), since he was in his teens. In this course, he turns his youthful cinephilia into an exploration of the alternative religious movements and cults in 1960s and 1970s California—perhaps most notoriously represented by Charles Manson and Jim Jones, and their followers—that spawned a whole subgenre of films.
