80's slasher

Welcome to the great BGH redesign of 2014! To celebrate, Bloody Good Horror is releasing the video below. It combines my borderline disturbing love of Friday the 13th, dubstep remixes of horror themes, and seizure inducing editing.

Experiment time horror fans! Find someone who doesn’t like horror films. Be it your squeamish girlfriend, art-house dwelling hipster co-worker or your mother who doesn’t understand why you’re always watching “that garbage”, and ask them to describe “Friday the 13th”. Chances are they’ll talk about how gory the film is, mention all the horny teenagers and nudity, and talk about Jason and his hockey mask and machete. Maybe they’ll also mention Kevin Bacon because, come on, it’s Kevin Bacon. Problem is, that’s not really “Friday the 13th”.

The "Sleepaway Camp" series is hands down one of my favorite slasher series as a whole (yes, even the third one) and "Sleepaway Camp 2" is one of my all time favorite horror movies.

I'll always remember walking down the aisles of the horror section at our local mom and pop video rental store, Gary's Take-Out Video. While my parents were busy chatting it up with Gary, I was introduced to VHS cover art of the horror variety.

Over the weekend, I stumbled across the 80's slasher flick "Intruder" in my Netflix Instant Queue, and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. The film, which was written and directed by Scott Spiegel, co-writer of "Evil Dead 2", is set entirely in a local supermarket.
