One Thousand Cries Has the Night)
Directed by: Juan Piquer Simón
Back of Box:
This bloody slasher film from director Juan Piquer Simón concerns a chain-saw wielding madman who is roaming
a college campus in search of human parts for a ghastly jigsaw puzzle. Stars Christopher George as a police Lieutenant
and Lynda Day George as a police women who goes undercover as a tennis instructor. Cult horror audiences will love this
film that includes plenty of gore, unintentional humor and of course lots of gratuitous nudity. Not for the faint of
heart. Not to be watched on a full stomach.

A pig carcass was used for the close-up of the chainsaw cutting
through the tennis player.
The film starts set in the 1940's, but a New England Patriots
pennant can easily be seen on the wall of the young boy. The Patriots didn't come into existence until 1960, and even
then they were known as the Boston Patriots.
Again the prologue is set in the 1940's, but a 1970's style push button phone is shown.
The beginning of the film is still set in the 1940's, but near the end of the opening scene
the mother tells her son to get a plastic trash bag. The plastic trash bag wasn't invented until 1950.
During the opening of the film, when the mother is screaming at her son over the pornographic
puzzle, she mentions that the son's father is in the Air Force. That's all well and good...except the fact that the
US Air Force was called the US Army Air Corps until after WWII ended.
