Targets (1968)

A campy and chaotic low budget horror intro perfectly suits this clever, self-referential combination of movie industry drama and psychopath thriller. Disturbing and interesting, often creating unease by a misleading technique of lingering on wrong-seeming, arbitrary details.

The concentrated story revolves around the endearing and creepy portraits of two very different men/monsters. Both out of time and place, moving in parallel through a garish 60s America, unable to cope with reality as it has become – and destined to meet in the pressure release ending.

Made with economy – but never cheap. In my book.
