Welcome to the first of 3 weeks delving into the demented depths of decades of depravity! This spooky season CinemaJaw is choosing the top 5 scariest of three major decades in horror film – the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s.

We begin this terrible task with the decade that gave us disco, pet rocks, and punk rock. The 1970’s. It would be too obvious to choose the usual suspects, your Exorcists of the world so we tried to delve a little deeper and look for hidden gems as best we could. Joining us on this quivering quest is a guy with some experience as a CinemaJaw guest. John Otterbacher…

Back for his umpteenth time on the show is a friend, film professor, filmmaker, producer and polymath John Otterbacher. In addition to his many credits and projects, John is a member of Chicago’s IFA (Independent Film Alliance), the mission of the IFA: to build a foundation to provide thier members the community and resources they need to be part of a growing film industry in Chicago. Something CinemaJaw is very much in favor of! They have a block party event coming up on October 23rd that is the perfect jumping on point for anyone interested. Get your tickets here.

OF COURSE we also talk to Professor O. about all of his many other projects and ideas that are coming down the pipe.

So go back in time with us to a place best forgotten, but not really. A horribly wonderful time for horror… the 1970’s

Here we go!
