HELL-elujah! It’s just a little over three weeks away from Halloween, and if you’re like me you’re already searching for a nice assortment of dvds for that special night; some odd, long forgotten slasher or grindhouse classic to set the mood. Sure, you could settle for the traditional John Carpenter’s Halloween or any of it’s numerous sequels. You could make do with any of the Friday the 13th movies. Why not? They’re all great. But why not program an epic, schlocky, b-movie night that will knock you and your hallows eve guests on your collective asses? Don’t worry, chumps. Just sit back and I’ll get you started:
I think Brett Piper’s Shock-O-Rama is as good a place to start as any. It’s a fun, refreshing, three-part anthology film (ala Creepshow) featuring sexy, b-movie, scream queen, Misty Mundae in the wraparound story. You even get to see her face off against a zombie with a chainsaw! Nice, eh? Cartoonishly lit with an E.C. comics sensibility, Shock-O-Rama is great, old-school-style, horror fun! Aliens, zombies, disreputable movie producers…and yes, plenty of nudity! I’ll definitely have more movie picks for you in the days to come. In the meantime, reserve a copy of Shock-O-Rama for your Halloween viewing. You can order it as well, directly from Alternative Cinema. Those guys rule! And here’s a nice parting shot I drew of young Jason Voorhees waving to you from the depths of Crystal Lake. Hee-hee!
