I don't know how low the budget was, but "Fright Night" is my fave!

'The Keep' is not available. For low-budget flicks I'd have to add 'The Gate'.

Devolution here,
Summer Camp Nightmare, with Chuck Conners
a classic. When the band sings Beef Bologna.
I have Sleepaway Camp, loved it from childhood.

They don't make B movies like they used to.

I agree! The cheese factor is very high in the low budget 80s horror flicks, but that makes them more likable.

My older sister and I loved those two films when we were kids. Sleep Away Camps sequels were awful and never did the first justice.

Well thats just my two cents.

Sleepaway Camp ^^

Liked it so much that I ordered it online and paid so much because I live in the end of the world and it came from us. It was worth it anyway. !!!

Actually, I really liked Sleepaway Camp II. It was funny. That's the one with Renee Estevez (Sheen).

Angela (Pamela Springsteen) kills someone with a drill, drowns Ally (the camp tramp) in a latrine (YUCK!) and there are a few other inventive murders that I can't remember. Angela was insane singing Coombayah and talking about fornication.

"Oh, I'm a happy camper
I love the summer sun
I love the trees and forest
I'm always having fun!"

I watched it a bajillion times. It always makes me think of "Scream for Help", cause they were my two goofy horror flicks for awhile.

Does anyone else have a special place in their heart for "Scream for Help"? I eventually shared the flick with my high school friends and it was one of the films we would recite the lines from and the most abstract times.

"what are you going do?" <rolls her eyes> "Get an abortion, of course!"

What about "Blades"? Did anyone like that film? I haven't seen it in awhile, it came out in 89. It's gross but really funny! People at a country club are being killed by a lawn mower! I reccomend you guys check it out if you haven't already!

Naw, it's not. It's not super low budget, but it's super over-the-top and hilarious. I mean, how can you NOT laugh when our heroine is maniacally bicycling all over town stalking her stepfather who she thinks wants to murder her. I mean, it's crazy. Me and my friends would sing the Wicked Witch of the West theme song while she rode around town.

There's not much info on IMDB so here's the link to read the customer reviews on Amazon. It'll give you a good idea of what you're gonna get. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/6301651847/103-2354494-1207832

The screenplay is written by Tom Holland who wrote and directed "Fright Night" (an absolute favorite) and "Child's Play".

Corey Parker is the only recognizable person in the cast. Although the stepfather was in a big Grapenuts campaign in the early 90s.

I'm gonna have to buy one of the used copies. I'm getting a smile on my face just thinking about it.

Here's a write-up in "The Onion". There's a pic of the video box cover. Maybe it'll ring a couple of bells.

another So Bad Its Good is The Pit. Its about a disturbed little kid no one likes whose in obsessive lust with his babysitter(he deops silverware off the table to look up her skirt,he makes her give him baths) he finds a little colony of "monsters" living in the woods behind his house.They become his friends,they only eat people,he becomes thier "feeder". This movie might not even be so hysterical if the monsters werent so shoddy lookin....but the things a real cheapy,and very funny.

Basket Case is great! Have you seen any of it's sequels? Of course they're not as good as the first butthey are quite entertaining.

Has anyone ever seen Wes Cravens 'Last House On The Left'? That's a classic. It was low budget because I think it was his first film or something. The thought of what happened in the movie kinda creeps me out. If you haven't seen it, check it out!

I don't remember, it's been so long....

Does anybody rememebr "Waxwork" and "April Fools Day" ? Waxwork had kind of a good storyline, for an 80s horror flick. AFD, was plain funny with some hilarious death scenes. Deborah Foreman was in both films. You'd probably know her from Valley Girl.

There's also a low budget horror film I've been thinking of but can't remember the title. It might have been made in the late 70s. Some guy with an extra finger kills a bunch of people who are celebrating their high school reunion or something. I also remeber a clown and a priest. In the begining, I remember some kid walking out of a lake totaly dry. He just keeps walking. Anyone got a clue?

Devolution here,

Yeah, Ali, I remember them and remember them well. The problem is Waxwork was a Joe Bob Briggs special a long time ago, and April Fools Day was a bit nuts, with the kid and the boat in the beginning of the movie.

Your movie sounds a bit like Slaughter High, but I don't think that it is. Cinemax in the late 80's used to put on some good stuff horror wise for the fans out there.

There are too many to say, I love 80s horror film, that such camp feel to them, here are some great ones.

Return of the Living Dead (Do you wanna party, its party time)
Street Trash (Melting Homeless)
Slaughter High (Poor Marty)
Day of the Dead (Romero is GOD)
Elm Street Series (main stream -low budget)
Bad Taste (Gore-tastic)

......can't think of more but there are many

Joe Bob Briggs! Haha I remember his show on The Movie Channel(I think it was on there). Yeah those films weren't that great but if you watch them now it's hilarious!
I just watched Night Screams again the other day because my friend wanted to see it. I laugh every time the guy gets his face burned on the stove. It's also pretty funny when this girl gets squashed by a car. The movie isn't that great but a few scenes make it watchable.
