In celebration of April Fool’s Day next week, here is another 80′ slasher film starring none other than Biff from Back to the Future. Stick around for an important announcement from us at the end of the podcast.
The Sam Raimi team of misfits gathers together in 1989 to add to the growing pile of middling 80’s slasher films, this one surrounding the night crew in a supermarket that is too small for its own good. Sam and Ted Raimi, Martin Sheen’s daughter, and even Bruce Campbell all make appearances, with effects by The Walking Dead goremeister Greg Nicotero.
We chose this film to finish up our month of notorious #2’s because Hooper and Co. decided to go a completely different direction with a wacky, gory comedy, instead of the shocking straight horror style of the original (which did, truth be told, have its own darkly comedic moments).
Very different in tone from the original House (which we have previously discussed), we had fond memories of this horror-comedy from our childhoods. Have a listen to see if the film measured up to our recollections.
Sorry for the lateness of this week’s (last week’s!) episode. In keeping with our holiday-ish theme, we went with a film that, although it technically takes place during Easter, should still put you in a holiday mood with all the snow, sweaters, and celebration. Red is the color of the season. Enjoy our take on the Norwegian horror film, Dead Snow.
