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
