Well, this is it folks. The Movie Discussion Club that covers Halloween. To put the cherry(Not you Cherry Liquor) on top of this horror sundae we've been having this month, I went to the one and only SuperMarcey. And boy does she deliver!
This week's theme is "Horror from 1985."
1. Re-Animator(1985) R
Based on a story by H.P. Lovecraft, this campy send-up that spawned a similarly outlandish sequel follows an egotistical medical student named Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs), who develops a serum that miraculously revives the dead. Together with his obdurate roommate, Dan (Bruce Abbott), and his girlfriend, Megan (Barbara Crampton), West reanimates a corpse -- but he doesn't factor in certain complications.
2. Fright Night(1985) R
Nobody believes teenager Charley Brewster (William Ragsdale) when he discovers that his suave new neighbor, Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon), is a vampire. So when the bloodsucker starts stalking Charley, he turns to has-been actor Peter Vincent (Roddy McDowall), famed for portraying a ghoul hunter. Unfortunately for the would-be vampire slayers, Dandridge has set his sights on Charlie's girlfriend in this clever spoof of the horror genre.
3. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge(1985) R
It's been 5 years since Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) tormented those hapless Elm Street teens with his razor glove and maniacal sense of humor. Now, he's back for revenge, with his sights set on another innocent victim he can torture and possess. If Freddy's plan to live again succeeds, he'll return from the dead and be free to kill anyone his twisted heart desires!
The lady has taste, that's for sure! I'm curious to see which one wins, as I love all 3 for completely different reasons.
Now go ahead and vote!
