CHILLING CLASSICS: Funeral Home (1980)

After my review of Funeral Home, I was hoping that someone else would write about it as part of our Chilling Classics month. Luckily, Becca, the B of B and S About Movies volunteered. She agreed to be interviewed about her feelings on this movie. Sam: So did you like Funeral Home?  Becca: It's been on for about… Continue reading CHILLING CLASSICS: Funeral Home (1980)

2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 12: The Children (1980)

Day 12 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is Too Soon: Kids 12 or less meet an early demise. Geez, grim. Who Could Kill a Child seems like a pick that everyone would pull out, so I decided to go 80's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NusR2Syokag The best thing that I can say about this movie is that nearly every person… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 12: The Children (1980)

Kill or Be Killed (1980)

Martial arts movies make little to no sense most of the time. Then, there's this movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTWutgUNNRM Steve Chase is a martial artist who goes to the desert for what he thinks is an Olympic style meet. Nope.

BIGFOOT WEEK: Night of the Demon (1980)

As I worked on Bigfoot Week, I turned to Phil Hall’s The Weirdest Movie Ever Made for guidance.

DEADLY GAME SHOWS: The Gong Show Movie (1980)

It's hard for me to explain the cultural behemoth that The Gong Show was when it debuted. Originally airing on NBC from June 14, 1976 to July 21, 1978 (and in first-run syndication from 1976 to 1980), the show was basically a talent contest with celebrity judges that graded the talent and could gong -- meaning they'd have… Continue reading DEADLY GAME SHOWS: The Gong Show Movie (1980)
