Episode 105 - The Pyx of Death

This week we go deep into the cave...all the way to the fires of Hell! We encounter evil forces yet, thankfully, live to tell the tale.  We start off with an amazing film from 1973 called The Pyx. It stars Karen Black and Christopher Plummer in a tragic story of a prostitute who gets involved in nefarious dealings and pays the ultimate price, and the detective who's trying to unravel the mystery of her death. The film has a fascinating structure, with the story broken into two timelines. It was a real surprise to both of us and we highly recommend it.  We follow that up with 1981's Demonoid: Messenger of Death, which features Samantha Eggar and Stuart Whitman. It is the story of an American couple who've bought a mine in Mexico where they unknowingly unleash an evil disembodied hand that seemingly wants to take over the world.  It is a mish-mash of interesting moments but ultimately is not really worth your time. Let us know what you thought of the show by writing to us at flickersfrom@yahoo.com or flickersfrom@gmail.com. Alternately, you could post a message on our Facebook page or tweet @cavewalls.
