It’s the 1980s, and you’re staying home this Halloween evening to enjoy some scary movies with friends. That means a stop at the old video store to rent something from the horror section. Here are the VHS boxes on the shelf from A to Z. What will you be renting tonight?
“Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water… you can’t get to it.. and if you’re in the water, stay there.
Worst. Tagline. Ever.
One the most depraved movies you’re ever likely to see.
I saw this in the theater when it came out. I still remember the audience’s WTF reaction when the undead Samantha throws a basketball at the neighbor lady and her head literally explodes.
I love the special feature on this VHS: “To make this an amusing and enjoyable film and to ensure no one should take the sex scenes too seriously, the final scenes include the best and funniest of the out-takes.”
This was actually a crummy TV movie starring the lady from Cagney & Lacy (Tyne Daly).
So, which ones are you renting tonight? I’d be interested to learn what tapes are going in your VCR this evening.
