The score for the movie was composed by the incarcerated killer Bobby Beausoleil, one of the infamous Charles Manson family killers. He was in jail when he made the score. It is the only film score to be written and recorded wholly in a prison.

Josh Saco, co-founder of the analogue film specialists group Cigarette Burns, said he believes the women in giallo films are "the original scream queens."

He said, "You watch these films because you want to see people like Florinda Bolkan [the star of A Lizard in a Woman's Skin and Don't Torture a Duckling]. These women are stunning and interesting; they play these crazy roles and you're really drawn to them. So many people find their way through giallo because of the actresses: they're really important people in the genre."

"Don't be afraid anymore. I'll take care of you. Always. Yes, always. I understand you. I know you. I've always known you. You won't be alone any more, because I'll be with you always. Whenever you put out your hand, you will find my hand. You are no longer shipwrecked, no longer a fugitive. No more loneliness. No more selfishness. We will share a life of serenity and devotion. The one you and I were waiting for. You had no faith, but you trusted and found me. I am the one you were waiting for. And I am here with you. Forever."

Performance (1970)




During the filming, Donald Cammell allegedly encouraged the cast and crew to take drugs and mingle sexually to help get into the necessary atmosphere. According to Anita Pallenberg, one scene actually shows her shooting heroin, which she was just starting to get into at the time.

Donald Cammell and Nicolas Roeg (mainly responsible for the 'look' of the film) also benefited from a lack of interference from Warner Bros. studio executives, who believed they were getting a Rolling Stones equivalent of A Hard Day's Night (1964). Instead, they delivered a dark, experimental film which included graphic depictions of violence, sex and drug use.

At a test screening in Santa Monica in March 1970, one Warner executive's wife vomited with shock in response to the film and paying customers had to be offered their money back.

Before filming began, director Alejandro Jodorowsky spent a week without sleep under a Zen Master's direction and lived communally with the film's cast for a month.

George Harrison, himself a big fan of Jodorowksy's work after having seen El Topo (1970), was originally up for the role of The Thief, but disagreed with the director over what he considered gratuitous nudity - particularly, the shot where his anus is bathed. Rather than cast a stand-in, or remove the shot altogether, Jodorowsky stood his ground, prompting Harrison to drop out. Jodorowsky later expressed some regret over this in the Anchor Bay DVD commentary, noting that Harrison's involvement could have exposed the film to an even larger audience.

Star Marlene Clark said the first time she saw the movie was at the opening-night screening in New York. "There was a splashy party afterward -- and being the lead actress, I was pretty much the star of the party!" She said in an interview. "Nothing like that had ever happened to me before. It was wonderful."

The bubble burst the next day, however, when almost every New York critic panned the film. "When I read the reviews, I thought, 'They didn't get it,'" Clark remembers. "Many critics believe that black people make very straightforward, literal movies -- so Bill was really an enigma to them. They just did not understand what he had done. It never found much of an audience, but a number of industry people saw it, especially in New York, so I was offered some other movies."

Monica Weston: I hope you didn't mind being alone for a few minutes. I wanted to change into something nice; I think making love should be elegant, yet simple. You know... me and you. Nothing elaborate.

George Dumurrier: You don't go for threesomes?

Monica Weston: Depends on how much I get.

According to Kenneth Anger, Scorpio is the zodiac sign that rules both the sex organs and machinery, so it seemed like a good choice for the title. "Rising" implies the astrological term "ascendant."

It is considered by many to be one of the first post-modern films and a direct influence on such avant garde directors as Martin Scorsese and David Lynch.

Michelangelo Antonioni's assistant and casting director, Sally Dennison, first spotted Mark Frechette having an argument with a woman at a bus stop in Los Angeles. Frechette was not an actor but a carpenter at the time so when Dennison brought him to Antonioni's attention, she told him "He's twenty and he hates". Antonioni cast him on the spot.

In real life, Mark Frechette led a counterculture life much like his character's in the film. Three years after the release of this film, he was imprisoned for his part in a bank hold-up in Boston. He died in prison in 1975 during a weightlifting exercise when a barbell fell on his neck.

One hundred people participated in the orgy scene, half of them from Joseph Chaikin 's Open Theatre company, and the other half "made up of assorted hippies."

It has been claimed that this movie was the beginning of Gabriel's inspiration for the classic Genesis concept album, 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway'.

David Gilmour, guitarist of Pink Floyd, was one of the session musicians who performed the movie's original score.

A number of the movie's set pieces and art and set direction were inspired by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer fantasy-adventure classic The Wizard of Oz (1939).

House (1977)




The script was partly inspired by the director Nobuhiko Ôbayashi's then 12 year old daughter Chigumi. She told him of a fear she had where the mirror she used would eat her.

According to Ôbayashi, this is the first Japanese film to use video effects, which he applied in a scene to make one of the girls "dissolve" underwater through low fidelity video and a simple chroma key effect.

Psychedelia refers to the psychedelic subculture and the psychedelic experience from the 1960s. This includes psychedelic art, psychedelic music and style of dress during that era. This was primarily generated by people who used psychedelic drugs such as LSD, mescaline (found in peyote) and psilocybin (found in magic mushrooms) and also non-users who were participants and aficionados of this subculture.

Psychedelic art and music typically recreate or reflect the experience of altered consciousness. Psychedelic art uses highly distorted, surreal visuals, bright colors and full spectrums and animation (including cartoons) to evoke, convey, or enhance the psychedelic experience.

Psychedelic music uses distorted electric guitar, Indian music elements such as the sitar, tabla, electronic effects, sound effects and reverberation, and elaborate studio effects, such as playing tapes backwards or panning the music from one side to another.



The term "psychedelic" is derived from the Ancient Greek words psychē (ψυχή, "soul") and dēloun (δηλοῦν, "to make visible, to reveal") translating to "mind-manifesting".

A psychedelic experience is characterized by the striking perception of aspects of one's mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences including changes of perception such as hallucinations, synesthesia, altered states of awareness or focused consciousness, variation in thought patterns, trance or hypnotic states, mystical states, and other mind alterations.

These processes can lead some people to experience changes in mental operation defining their self-identity (whether in momentary acuity or chronic development) different enough from their previous normal state that it can excite feelings of newly formed understanding such as revelation, enlightenment, confusion, and psychosis.
