The Unholy (1988)

The Unholy is a decent horror flick.
The cast is good: Ben Cross, Hal Holbrook, Ned Beatty, Jill Carroll and William Russ.

Too bad that nothing much happens during the middle part
because the beginning of the movie and especially the ending rocks.

Good score composed by Roger Bellon and some cool and nasty special effects.

I saw this film back in the 80s but the Finnish VHS tape was cut.
Now i own this uncut Dutch tape.

seen all of them good package,i liked chud ,the stuff and house 1 a lot,return to horror high was pretty bad but still watchable,mountaintop motel massacre was the only one that tested my patience ,i only lasted half the movie and turned it off,i personally thought it was a bit of a stinker,though i have heard of a few people that have liked it .

Quicksilver Highway.

Not the best Stephen King Horror movie.
Maximum Overdrive is probably my favorite

The Carpenter (1987)

Canadian production starring Wings Hauser doing another one of his psycho roles.
Actually there is some very good acting in this one, especially from Lynne Adams in the role of
Alice.
It's always good to see Wings Hauser, but in this one he is nowhere near as good as he was in
Vice Squad. (Ramrod is still one of the best psychos in movie-history !)
I thought the horror scenes were a bit uninspired though.

The Carpenter has recently been released on region-free dvd courtesy of Scorpion Releasing.

Fright Night and The Gate.

Fright Night is stand out teen vamp classic!

The Gate is interesting and became more darker during further watching of it.

C.H.U.D. and House are both very good mid-80's New World horror movies. I'll reserve my comments on Return to Horror High and Mountaintop Motel Massacre until I've actually viewed them, though.

C.H.U.D. offers up some a lively performance from Daniel Stern, terrific monster effects by John Caglione, gore effects by Ed French, a moody synth score, and some excellent use of dark shadows and lighting in the sewer and nighttime scenes.

House is a fun horror-comedy hybrid. If you like movies that have lots of monsters, then you'll probably like House, as it's got plenty of them. Among the more notable creatures are the fat female goblin in the dress, the slimy beast in the closet, and the skeleton/zombie version of Big Ben (the Vietnam War buddy of William Katt's character who haunts him).

You Better Watch Out aka Christmas Evil (1980)

It was a fun and sad low budget horror flick.
Brandon Maggart was great as Harry Stadling. He took Christmas pretty seriously [Smile]
I loved the scene where he puts the beard on and realizes that he´s born
to give gifts to the good ones and punish the bad. "It´s me!! Hahahah" (evil laugh).

The cheap synth score was perfect for the movie, so EVIL [Big Grin]
Loved the ending too.

Just watched New Year´s Evil (1980)

It was pretty good old school horror movie.
I didn´t remember that this was a Golan/Globus flick.

The cast did a decent work and i liked the atmosphere. I also liked the music.
The band called Shadow is pretty good, especially their theme tune "New Year´s Evil" rocks.

The Van Nuys Drive-In scene is pure gold featuring topless Teri Copley in her first feature film.

Cool music, decent kills, awesome early 80s scenery and one mixed-up family.

I own this dutch VHS tape:

Caught Amityville 3-D today. I had seen bits of it before, but I didn't know I'd like it so much!

 -

Haha, love the funny cover art. I was pre-warned that aside from Meg Ryan and Lori Loughlin being in it, it was nothing worth checking out. Not true! I actually liked it and it had some creepy moments.

 -

The whole seance part was fun to watch. I don't know why seance scenes are always fun to watch in movies?
 -

Glad I watched. [Smile]

I watched New Year's Evil. It was weird at first, but it got pretty good. @ Ronnie, I like Amityville 3D cause it has Neil Barry, who played Stiggs in O.C. and Stiggs!

Alien 2 ; Sulla Terra (1980)

Cool Italian horror-fest about a group of speliologists encountering alien rocks (??!!)..
or something. [Big Grin]

After the surviving members finally find a way out of the cave, they're shocked to find out
the whole world has changed overnight.
(something that reminded me of the later Night of the Comet (1984) and Demons (1985)

The movie was independently released on limited edition dvd and blu-ray about a year ago, and
looks truly amazing on both formats.

If you can find it, get it !

Rats - Night of Terror (1984)

"One hundred years after a nuclear war has devastated the planet, society has been reborn into two factions;
the underground society and the scavangers above in the wastelands.
A group of scavangers on bikes come across a town infested with flesh eating rats,
and soon the gore is spilling everywhere." (IMDb)

This was a mediocre and supercampy horror flick directed by Bruno Mattei.
I have to say that i expected much more from this one.
It was overlong, unexciting and the "acting" was just hilarious.
I liked the synth score composed by Luigi Ceccarelli and the surprise ending though.

Slaughterhouse Rock (1988)

Just watched this A Nightmare on Elm Street wannabe directed by Dimitri Logothetis (Pretty Smart)

Starring Nicholas Celozzi, Tom Reilly (Young Warriors), Hope Marie Carlton (Terminal Exposure and Sidaris regular),
Tamara Hyler, Donna Denton, Steven Brian Smith, Ty Miller and pop star Toni Basil.

I was a bit disappointed because the plot and the acting are sub-standard even for a b-movie.
The score was pretty good (performed by Devo) and i also liked the Devo/Toni Basil end credits tune "The Only One".

Some nice sequences and one nasty kill plus few Hope Marie Carlton nude scenes [Smile]
The trailer is pretty good so check it out!
