Retro Trailer: "Ruby" (1977)

When I was growing up, I happened to catch the 1977 supernatural horror flick "Ruby" airing on TV and it scared the crap out of me. Since I always enjoy re-watching the movies that terrified me as a child and seeing how well they hold up today, I decided to check it out. While the movie does not hold up as well as I would have hoped, it does pack some effective scares and a pretty decent performance by Piper Laurie who plays the title role of Ruby Claire.

Retro Trailer: "Slumber Party Massacre 2" (1987)

Back in the day, one of my favorite VHS tapes from my collection was "Slumber Party Massacre." Not so much for the movie, which was just a pretty run of the mill slasher flick, but for the trailer of "Slumber Party Massacre 2", which is honestly the most hilariously crazy trailer I have ever seen in my entire life. To this day, I have not seen the actual movie, but a recent browse through some of my old VHS tapes made me think of it and I am determined to check it out in the near future.

Retro Trailer: "Student Bodies"

I'm just going to lay it out here: I hate the Scream series. Sure, the first one was good, but in true Hollywood tradition, we need to milk every god damn ounce of potential profit until even a mention of the aforementioned movie produces a onslaught of bile in our throats.

Retro Trailer: "Ginger Snaps" (2000)

"Ginger Snaps" is a quirky, fun werewolf movie. It's certainly no "Twilight", but unfortunately, not every movie can be a masterpiece. All sarcasm aside, the 2000 Canadian film directed by John Fawcett, offers a different take on the whole werewolf flick, as the film uses lycanthropy as a metaphor for puberty. Teen sisters Brigitte and Ginger (Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle) are awkward high school outcasts who are obsessed with death.

Retro Trailer: "A Nightmare on Elm Street" Trailer (1984 - you know, the good one?)

As BGH re-visits the horror podcast classics, I'm continuing the theme with my first horror obsession - Wes Craven's "A Nightmare on Elm Street". You know the story - the kids of Elm Street are being visited in their dreams by scarred man in a fedora, a green & red striped sweater and a gloved hand with razor fingers. The movie continually blurs the line between reality & dream as the teens are picked off one by one - because if you die in your dream.... you die for real.
