The Test of Time: The Burning (1981)

We all have certain movies we love. Movies we respect without question because of either tradition, childhood love, or because they’ve always been classics. However, as time keeps ticking, do those classics still hold up? Do they continue to be must see? So…the point of this here column is how a film stands against the Test of Time, if the thing holds up for a modern...

The Test of Time: The Road Warrior (Mad Max 2) (1981)

We all have certain movies we love. Movies we respect without question because of either tradition, childhood love, or because they’ve always been classics. However, as time keeps ticking, do those classics still hold up? Do they continue to be must see?

Horror Movie Hotties: Friday the 13th: Part 2 (1981)

Yes, Virginia, there is a Jason Voorhees. Friday the 13th is coming up for the second month in a row, which rarely happens, so of course this calls for some sort of freaky celebration. In other words, it gives me the opportunity to share hotties clips from the campy horror series that keeps on giving. Let's start with Kirsten Baker, who sported some short shorts and a Mickey Mouse...

Horror Movie Hotties: Bloody Birthday (1981)

I don't know about you, but I've been celebrating a lot of bloody birthdays this month. Not that it's all bad, but it get exhausting. What is it with months like November, April and June that seem to be magnets for babies? Anyway, wherever there's a universally recognized day of celebration, there's a horror movie to make you fearful of that event, and in this...

Horror Movie Hotties: Deadly Blessing (1981)

Today we'll be stepping back in time, all the way to the year 1981, when the Sharon Stone chiller DEADLY BLESSING hit theaters. I know not everyone is as big a fan of nude actresses from the early '80's as I am, but it doesn't hurt to tip our hats to the ladies who started the cliche once in a while. That cliche being whenever there's some creepy, eery music playing,...

Kill of the Day: The Howling (1981)

I don't know about the rest of you but I love werewolves. Chances are if you're a fan of this beloved genre than you're a fan of those pesky lycans as well. Recently I put up a werewolf themed Kill of the Day and today once again we're getting a little furry! This time we're going back to a classic. That's right folks, I'm talking Joe Dante's THE HOWLING! Actually for today's kill we've...

Kill of the Day: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

For today's Kill of the Day I decided to take a side-step from our beloved horror genre and step on over to the world of action/adventure/fantasy. That's right folks, I'm talking Indiana Jones! See, not that big of a step, right? Chances are if you're a fan of the genre than you're an Indiana Jones fan. Actually chances are you're an Indiana Jones fan, period. If that's the case then...

Kill of the Day: Fear No Evil (1981)

I'm going to go ahead and warn you folks, today's Kill of the Day is pretty twisted. Now I haven't seen the 1981 flick FEAR NO EVIL but after seeing this clip I would be lying if I said I wasn't intrigued. In today's scene we're treated to what seems to be some dude as he ... grows boobs? It gets stranger people. Then some pasty dude comes walking in and forces the guy with boobs to...

Face-Off: My Bloody Valentine (original) Vs. My Bloody Valentine (remake)

I was pleased to see the amount of undead affinity our last Face-Off garnered. Both flicks battling definitely have a special place in the hearts of horror lovers and ya'll did a fine job speaking from your tickers. I do believe Peter Jackson's Dead Alive did just solidify a victory. Thanks for showing the love. And today, we are mixing love and horror into a fun little cocktail of...
