Retro Clip: "Creepshow" (1982)

Every fall, I dig out some of my favorite horror movies that only feel right to watch around the Halloween season. If you've been following my blog, you know that I absolutely love, love, love, horror anthologies. One of my favorites, that comes out of my Halloween Horror Arsenal every year is the 1982 horror fan favorite "Creepshow." With the tagline: "the most fun you'll ever have being scared," how can you go wrong?!

Retro Clip: "Creepshow 2" (1987)

I love the Creepshow series, with my favorite short from them being in "Creepshow 2" The Raft features four college kids who decide to take an autumn swim at a secluded lake and are then terrorized by a hungry oil slick. They are trapped on a raft in the middle of the lake and unable to get away from the sludge like substance that's taking them out one by one. One of the things I really like about this movie is that there is no backstory regarding what the oil slick is or how it got there. I also love the ending.

Retro Clip: "Trilogy of Terror" (1975)

The "Trilogy of Terror" was an above average horror anthology that featured 3 stories all starring Karen Black. While the first two stories are somewhat forgettable, it's the third story, of an African tribal doll that comes to life and terrorizes Ms. Black that is really memorable. Although the effects are pretty laughable nowadays, this scared the heck out of me as a child. Plus, it's still pretty damn entertaining to watch every once in a while. Take a look:

Retro Clip: "Summer School" (1987)

Now I know what you're thinking, but hear me out on this. The 1987 cult comedy "Summer School" is definitely not a horror movie whatsoever. But it's one of my 'must watch' summer favorites and it features one of my all time favorite horror scenes in a non horror movie. For those unfamiliar with the movie, it's about a high school gym teacher (Mark Harmon) who has to cancel his summer plans to teach a summer school English course for a bunch of goof off underachievers. Horror fans will recognize Shawnee Smith as pregnant teen Rhonda.

Retro Clip: "The Shining" (1980)

I think it's pretty fair to say that even though Joe is our main go-to beer guy, all of us at Bloody Good Horror are fans of the beverage. I myself just got home from an amazing four hour long Samuel Adam's beer tasting, where we were able to try their most rare/expensive beer, Utopias (among many, MANY others).

Retro Clip: "Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers" (1988)

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. It has everything a suitable 80's slasher flick should have: dark humor, a likable cast, t and a, gore and finally, lots and lots of creative kills such as the outhouse drowning scene. While the original Angela Baker, Felissa Rose, does not reprise her role (she was busy attending college), we are treated to Bruce's sister, Pamela Springsteen, as everyone's favorite transsexual psycho killer.

Retro Clip: "Leprechaun In The Hood" (2000)

As you nurse your hangover from last night's festivities, why don't you sit back, pop some aspirin and feast your eyes on this little gem from 2000's Academy Award winning movie "Leprechaun In The Hood." Warwick Davis stars in the below scene as a rapping leprechaun.

.... and as an added bonus, here's one of the wee little man smoking weed... (NSFW)

Retro Clip: "Ghosthouse" (1988)

Fun Fact: In Italy, the translated titles for "The Evil Dead" and "Evil Dead 2" became "La Casa" and "La Casa 2." The titles, translating to "The House" in English, do not have much to do with the Raimi films other than the simple fact that all the films take place in some sort of cabin or house. Director Umberto Lenzi then went on to make 3 unrelated "sequels" to the "La Casa" films, which were titled "La Casa 3, 4 and 5".

Retro Clip: "Clownhouse" (1989)

The VHS cover alone was enough to give me nightmares, but the movie was pretty darn creepy too. Casey (Nathan Forrest Winters), one of three brothers, has an intense fear of clowns. His older brother Geoffrey (Brian McHugh) mostly sympathizes with Casey's fears, even though he doesn't understand them. Oldest brother Randy (Sam Rockwell) however, constantly makes fun of Casey. After a night at the circus, where Casey runs away from three clowns that approach him, the boys return home to their empty house.

Retro Clip: "The Gingerdead Man" (2005)

The 2005 holiday themed horror movie "The Gingerdead Man" is about a killer cookie that stalks the girl who sent him to the electric chair years ago. It's just as awful as it sounds, however it does have a few note worthy scenes. The first five minutes are pretty enjoyable as we get a look at what the gingerdead man looked like in human form... Surprise! It's the lovable and psychotic Gary Busey. The other notable scene? That would be the epic final battle of good versus gingerdead man, which you are about to see below. Got milk?
