Dark Sanity [Straight Jacket]
N.p. N.p., Circa 1982. Vintage album with approximately 300 reference photographs, a mix of black-and-white and color, from the 1982 horror film. Included with the album are four contact sheets (presenting approximately 120 images), one loose black-and-white reference photograph, and four negative strips housed in individual sleeves, all housed in a photography developer envelope. Single holograph ink annotation on the front of the album, noting the film title.
From the estate of cinematographer John McCoy.
Although the balance of the photographs were apparently taken for continuity and set documentation, multiple pages near the end of the album capture cast and crew members on the set. These photographs show crew members setting up scenery and relaxing, actors getting their makeup touched up, playfully posing with props (including quite a few humorous shots with a severed head) between takes, and several large group shots, ostensibly taken on the last day of filming.
A Z-budget thriller about a troubled woman who experiences psychic hallucinations of brutal decapitations after moving to a new house with her emotionally distant husband, and begins to suspect the murders are visions of her own future.
Photographs, negatives, and contact sheets varying sizes, most between 10 x 8 inches and 5 x 7 inches. Generally Near Fine. Album Very Good plus overall.
Thrower, Nightmare USA.
