RubyThe seventies gave the horror world a ton of classic movies.  Jaws scared people into not going into the water.  Halloween struck fear into the hearts of babysitters everywhere.  The Exorcist made people afraid of demonic possession.  But, for every Jaws, Halloween, or The Exorcist, there were a dozen other movies that fell along the wayside.  Made in 1977, Ruby is one of these movies.

What's the Matter with Helen?A mere day after the great Carrie Fisher died last week, her mother, the equally great Debbie Reynolds, passed away.  Like Fisher, Reynolds was mainly known for a single role, that of Kathy Selden in Singin’ in the Rain.  But, also like Fisher, Reynolds had a long and versatile list of credits to her name.  Since this is Cinema Fearité, you have probably guessed that she appeared in some horror movies.  Yes, faithful reader, she did.  In 1971, Reynolds starred in the musical mystery What’s the Matter with Helen?
