Stale Popcorn and Sticky Floors (2020)

This documentary offers a look back at the films that we love to cover most on this site, the grindhouse and drive-in horrors of the 70s and 80s. It has plenty of the stars lined up and doesn’t do anything to get in the way of them telling their stories, along with clips of the films for which they’re known best.

You’ll get to hear from everyone from Brinke Stevens (Slumber Party Massacre), Lynn Lowry (The CraziesI Drink Your BloodShivers), Kevin Van Hentenryck (Basket Case), John Dugan (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Mel Novak (Game of Death), John Russo (the writer of Night of the Living DeadMidnight and The Majorettes), Carl Crew (Blood Diner), Jonathan Peacy (I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu), Marneen Fields (Hellhole), Camilla Carr (Don’t Look in the Basement), Craig Muckler (the producer of Microwave Massacre), John Naulin (special effects for Re-Animator), Frank M. Farel (writer and producer of Spookies) and Craig Reed (who played the one-armed zombie in Re-Animator).

The only downside I can think to this movie is that it has such a short running time. I would have loved to hear more stories from everyone involved. If you’re a fan of any of these movies, this is something you’ll enjoy watching.

You can watch this online on the So Cal Cinema On Demand page or buy the DVD right here. To learn more, visit the official SCS Facebook page.
