Blow Out (1981)

A silent killer stalks a house of female coeds. He leers at them from the windows, breaks in, corners a young woman in the shower. As he raises his knife, she lets out a half-assed, laughable scream. 470 more words

Shaun vs. Terror in the Aisles (1984)

Directed by Andrew Kuehn

Starring Donald Pleasance, Nancy Allen and a cast of thousands!

Released October 26, 1984

Rated R

Donald Pleasance (Halloween) and Nancy Allen (Dressed to Kill) play two of the worst theatre patrons ever as they narrate a documentary about scary films while showing clips and scenes from classic monster movies of the 30s up to the nasty slashers of the early 80s while covering topics such as how sex gets you killed in these movies and how do they do those darn effects? 739 more words
