Original or remake?
Original...most definately. I haven't seen the remake, but I have been assured that it is dire, well in comparison.
I think the TCM has the best introduction of a badguy. The first scene with LeatherFace is ...well I can't explain it.Seen all three multiple times. It's hard to believe (or maybe not) that the first was a serious attempt at a horror movie.
I was twelve when I saw the first one...it scared the bejaysus outta me.Any 80's Zombie flick!!!
'Dawn of the Dead' = People holed up in a Shopping Mall
'Day of the Dead' = Civi's and Military in an underground military installation
There is also Freaky Friday, the Jason movies, Nightmare on Elm Street Movies and Halloween movies.
Jason X (Jason camps it up as a cyborg in a space station, should have won 'Best Improvised Weapon' award at movie award shows for using a valley girl in a sleeping bag)
Jason Vs. Freddy (Can't comment, but I have been told it is a bit of a larf)
Hellraiser (all except the last one set in space)
The Goolies - Excellent 80's horror (Hurrah for puppets - again barring the last one set in space)
Manic Cop (Cop is burned alive, dies, comes back a bit of a psycho)
IT (I will NEVER
watch that one again!)Funny thing, after watching that movie [Event Horizon]in the cinema myself and a friend headed back to my place where he was crashing for the night. ... huge spider ran over my friend's bare feet.
He screamed, I screamed, we beat it to death with a double video set of Bottom.
Oooh, I remember that. It was the pilot and the best one, it went down hill after that.'John Carpenter's: The Thing'
Played the game but never seen the movie (and therefore missed the point of any of the easter eggs or references to the film itself)
Game = Shite
Movie = Coolness
There is also John Carpenter's: Vampires! although less of a horror flick, it stars (one of the many) Baldwins, and a Deadly James Woods as a modern day Paladin working for the Vatican. But he is cool as he swears, carouses, and goes boozing after every vampire hunt! Much fun to be had with this one.'The Shadow Builder'
Never heard of that one and I've watched almost everything in the local Chartbusters and Lazer. I'm hoping my six month hiatus from renting anything will mean there's some new stock in there.
Try and find it, it is odd, so very odd. But alot of fun.
And if you can find it:
Actione Mutante (it is an Italian film, but it is feckin deadly!) [if you haven't guessed it translates as Mutant Action!]
More will come, as I try to remember my teenage summer weekednds wasted infront on the TV!
