Before there was Emmanuelle, there was Emmanuelle. Emmanuelle Arsan, to be slightly more precise. Marayat Rollet-Andriane to be even more precise still. Born Marayat Bibidh in January in the city of Bangkok, she was the real-life Emmanuelle.
THE EVIL DEAD (1981) Ash: "You b*****ds, why are you torturing me like this? Why?" Sam Raimi and friends created the world's first rock and roll fright film. Plots don't come much simpler - five friends travel to a cabin in the woods where they unknowingly release flesh-possessing demons - but the controversy it created resulted in the "zombies make mincemeat of teens in the woods" shocker only finally being seen uncut by British horror fans in 2001.
FRANKENSTEIN MUST BE DESTROYED (1969) Professor Richter: "I fancy that I am the spider and you are the fly, Frankenstein." The fifth in Hammer's Frankenstein series, this came closest to novelist Mary Shelley's original vision. The Baron (Peter Cushing) is at his most villainous (rape, murder, blackmail) while his monster (Freddie Jones) is at his most sympathetic as the pathetic yet love torn and vengeful creature.
