Cheerleader Camp, with Betsy Russell... that does look good. Going back to the first post, with the random hotdog cooking scene, isn't that from The Exterminator? Another ultra violent early 80s shocker.

If you want a really creepy and unsettling film from back then, that's fairly off the radar now, check this out:

The 1988 version starred Shawnee Smith and Tammy Lauren as two teens, Lisa and Kim, who for kicks begin making prank calls seductively saying "I saw what you did!". But when they randomly call a guy chosen out of the phonebook named Adrian Lancer, the prank goes very bad. You see Adrian has just killed someone and now he thinks they actually saw him do it.

It's all fun and games Lisa and Kim.. until you mistakenly stalk a deranged killer!

This was a very good rather unknown thriller.

Why you should watch it..

Great to see Robert Carradine in a different type of role and kinda cool that David Carradine played his brother in the movie.

The director was Fred Walton who also directed the films "When A Stranger Calls" and "April Fool's Day".

The little sister that starts the idea of prank calls is Candance Cameron who you might remember as Cindy Nelson from "Some Kind of Wonderful".

This movie actually won an Emmy for Cinematography.

Hey.. this is the lost horror thread .. you expected better reasons? [Big Grin]

Excellent post!

i watched this 1988 horror - the unholy when it first came out but can remember very little from it,though i do remember laughing at some demon creature that pops up at the end.

I have it on a UK dvd from Columbia Pictures.

It's been a while since i've seen it, but i remember i quite liked it.
It tried to move away from the teen-horror so popular in the 80's and do something more serious.

Watching it today it's kinda hampered by its 80's look and fashion, but it's not bad.. not at all.
