One of these days I gotta watch those Leprechaun movies.

So, on the subject of Troma and 80's greatness, ever see "Chopper Chicks in Zombietown"? The title pretty much says it all. And it features a young Billy Bob Thornton.

I don't know that I have ever seen Burnt Offerings. I should queue that one up, too. What a cast: Karen Black, Oliver Reed and Burgess Meredith.

I haven't seen any Leprechaun or Troll movies.

A good Halloween in front of the tube:

Descent
John Carpenter's "The Thing"
Young Frankstein for some much needed comic relief!

then after the kid's are asleep

Videodrome

and then top it off with Todd Solondz's "Happiness".

I was at a film festival where this was showing before release and I boasted, "It never got weird enough for me" (quoting Dr. Hunter S. Thompson). I was wrong. It got WAY toooo weird.

Like Lynch's, "Blue Velvet" or Water's "Pink Flamingos", it is a film that I am glad that I saw but I never, never what to see again.

On the spookier side of my queue sits Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, the uber-popular web series Prom Queen, and Ten Nights of Dreams, probably more spooky/surreal than scary. I still haven't seen The Nightmare Before Christmas (blasphemy! i know), so I'm hopefully watching it 3-D in the movie theaters this week.

I've seen parts of Poultygeist. Let me say this...if you liked the gross and insulting sexual humor of the 80's Troma...they've brought it to a whole new level. Mind, some parts were genuinely funny. Others, such as the bathroom scene were just...horrifyingly disgusting.

Things I learned from Critters:

Farmers apparently don't care when their cattle is eaten by an unknown thing. Just so long as the wife don't find out.

Farmers' wives are incapable of dealing with a crisis with anything but hysterical screaming and crying.

Cats outwit evil furball aliens better than people.

All boyfriends who touch their teenaged girlfriend's breasts will die. Even if she started it.

Furball aliens are vengeful with an evil sense of humor. They are also as captivated by ET as everyone else on earth.

Psuedo-rock stars are hot.

Sheriffs can't shoot.

Chickens are yummy to all species.

Firecrackers have the power of many barrells of TNT.

Aliens do not know what a fire suppression system is.

Cats ultimately belong in mailboxes.

Poultrygeist is a must see for any Troma fan. I didn't think it was any worse than any other production.

It takes a lot to make me squeamish though.

Oooooh flavorpods!

Things I learned from The Living and the Dead:

Trusting your hyperactively insane man-boy son to take his own meds is not a good idea.

Installing just one telephone in your massive, decaying English estate might not be a good idea.

Think twice about leaving your son and invalid wife home alone and embarking on a business trip before the nurse arrives.

Approaching a person who is off his meds while brandishing a large syringe is not necessarily a bright idea.

Saying "put the knife down" doesn't always work.

Happy Halloweenie!

After the evening festivities and candy-eating, I watched the new MST3K disc of their Laserblast episode, a terrible movie done up just right.

And then watched some of the bad but watchable House on Haunted Hill remake on TV.

I was surprised to see Poltergeist was on the Family channel tonight too. That movie still scares the bejeezus out of me, not sure how it works in Family-style edits.

I know it was mentioned somewhere else on the boards, but since I can't find that post, I thought I'd mention here,

GreenCine now has Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog for rent, for those who are less inclined to keep up online!
