I’ve had this happen to me before… When I mention freeze-frame shock endings (granted, it does sound grammatically incorrect), people suddenly give me a peculiar look and ask what the hell I’m talking about. So here’s a little introduction to the subject matter.
And if you’re one of the cool cats who do know what I’m talking about, go ahead and read this brief editorial anyway, as you don’t want to go clicking on things you didn’t want to know yet.

Director: José Ramón Larraz
Writer: Sture Sjöstedt and José Ramón Larraz
Release Year: 1971
José Ramón Larraz is quite the interesting duckling of Spanish horror & exploitation cinema. From his early sensual psycho-thrillers from the ’70s to his more genre-flavored ’80s horror efforts. His 1988 slasher outing ‘Edge Of The Axe’ is another film that would qualify for a terrific entry in this Shock Endings series. But since we recently managed to watch one of his very first films, one to end on a mental frozen shock moment no less, that’s the one we’ll be talking about.

Release Year: 1976
Trends and waves have appeared vastly in the horror genre throughout all decades. And by the time the second half of the 70′s came around, it were the animals who had built up an unstoppable reign of terror in horror cinema.

Director: Jean Rollin
Writers: Jean Rollin and Jacques Ralf
Release year: 1982
Jean Rollin’s LA MORTE VIVANTE (aka THE LIVING DEAD GIRL) – so far the one and only Rollin movie I’ve seen – is a very hit-and-miss kind of deal. But I’m not here to talk about the actual movie, of course.

LE NOTTI DEL TERRORE or BURIAL GROUND or THE ZOMBIE DEAD or whatever else aka-title this steaming pile of zombie-turd is known by, easily is one of the best bad zombie-movies out there. And a must-see for all Italian zombie-fans. You know, the slow, dry & dusty kind.
