The Face of Fear: The Manitou (1978)

November is Native American Heritage Month. And what better way to remember then that time a woman had a 400-year-old medicine man birth out of the tumor in her back?! Then waged war with him in a far off galaxy/hospital bed via toplessness and hand lasers?! I feel so culturally rich, you guys!

And yet worth more honor still? Tony Curtis, pinkies up as he defiantly gays up his straight leading man role. Tony quickly becomes fascinated with the Manitou and - while he isn't much to look at - stoner-faced greasy prosthetic that he is... He is always on his knees and has the ass of another cultural stereotype.
