Terror Trivia Tuesday for 12/15!

Promotional materials for this early 70s horror film encouraged theater managers to mail out newspaper ads and invitations for the movie enclosed in Christmas cards. This would have been an attention-grabber, since the movie opened in the United States several months before December. What was the title given to this motion picture upon its US release?

No and no...and I've seen a number of postings about this movie on other blogs in the last few weeks...(but I'm looking at the press & promotions kit right now, and that's where the ? comes from)...

And I should also say that those pictures may have suggested the same thing in their promotions, but they didn't have the distinct features of 1) a non-holiday release and 2) a unique US title.

Nope...

"Whoever Slew Auntie Roo?" -- released in the US as "Who Slew Auntie Roo?"
