#BMovieManiacs Event: Deadly Strangers (1975)

Hayley Mills has to get to Crumbling-on-Stoke or someplace and she’s missed the last bus, so she takes a ride with Simon Ward, a farm equipment salesman from Birmingham. They bond over coffee and vehicular manslaughter.

“What’s that in the road, a head?”

“He’ll be fine.”

Along the way, Hayley runs into the flamboyantly eccentric Sterling Hayden and British motorway hijinks ensue.

“The white whale tried to steal my precious bodily fluids.”

Oh, there’s also an escaped mental patient on the loose and some murders and Simon Ward has flashbacks to failed sexual encounters. It’s a gay romp through repressed sexuality, British accents, and driving on the wrong side of the road. Actually, it’s a nifty little thriller.

It’s a lighter AND a flamethrower.

Join the #BMovieManiacs crew on Twitter as we trade jibes and generally dish about the film. At 11pm, Friday, September 22, hit play, comment using the #BMovieManiacs hashtag, and enjoy. It’s fun.
