Sleepwalkers

Hailed (a bit wrongly) as “the first Stephen King movie written specifically for the screen,” this early 90’s video store staple is a product of its time. With early CGI morphing in all its glory, in-your-face incest, tons of celebrity cameos, and some fairly brutal violence, it doesn’t hold much back. You just kinda wish it turned out better as a result.

Home Sweet Home

Happy Thanksgiving! We managed to find an obscure slasher that takes place on this hungriest of holidays. And it’s a real turkey. But it does star Jake of “Body By Jake” fame! Where ya at, our 80’s kids?

Alligator

Robert Forster died last month. As always, we pay tribute to a late actor by reviewing one of his (usually) awful horror films. This one has nothing remarkable about it, except that there are some remarkable people involved in it, and it has an inexplicable 80% plus fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Who can figure this out? We can’t.

Once Bitten

So it’s basically a high school sex comedy with a horror theme, and not scary at all. But for the Halloween season we had to fulfill this request from Loyal Listener Neil, which thrilled Craig to no end. This is Jim Carrey’s big breakthrough – his first starring role as a frustrated teenage virgin who can’t get his girlfriend to give it up, so he turns to a female vampire instead and gets more than he bargained for. It’s goofy as hell and 80’s through-and-through, which means we more or less loved it.
