True, The Exorcist did create its own strain(s) of horror film, but Blacula and Frogs represented trends that were just getting started and remained strong for most of the decade.
But…but…The Legend of Boggy Creek!
Blood Splattered Bride and Don’t Torture a Duckling are good ones
Ishtar & Howard the Duck. Whew - those were horrors!
Like … Hell Comes to Frogtown?
I was thinking of the wave of revenge of nature films of the ‘70s, Phase IV, Day of the Animals, Squirm, etc.
My favorite early 70’s horror film was Gargoyles. I also remember Willard and its sequel Ben. And then there was Sssssss.
Hey now! I liked Howard the Duck.
Just outside the 1972 release date but 1973 still a good year.
One of my favorites from that era.
And put me down as a Howard The Duck fan.
Blast those motorcycle hooligans!
