The Ninth Configuration
Directed by William Peter Blatty
A troubled psychiatrist takes command of a military asylum filled with insane soldiers in this creepy only-in-the-’70s oddity written and directed by William Peter Blatty (THE EXORCIST). When Kane arrives at an army castle to cure the inhabitants, he bonds with an astronaut who snapped before a mission. But as the two men examine their demons, it becomes clear Kane may be more in need of help than his patients. Blatty’s unsettling mix of psychological horror and Altman-meets-Joseph Heller-esque comedy has fascinated die-hard cult cinema fans since its release in 1980.

interesting and weird. Not a horror film at all. i was hoping for a fright- didnt happen at all.
Haunting, mesmerising. You can see the void in their eyes.
A masterpiece of anti-war surrealism, up until the last two shots, where the religious overlay obscures the humanist core. The 'lamb's name was V.C., Not J.C.
Holy shit, incredible
