Alisa Ramone and Bobi Lobotomy here, reviewing the best (and worst) of the bad in horror. We are working from what we believe to be a comprehensive list of ’80’s horror. You’ll be getting the worst the decade has to offer. Not everything will be from the ’80’s, be ready for anything we might throw at you.
The two of us rarely agree on what makes a bad film great. For both of us though, the campier the movie the better. Alisa does not care for werewolves (“I’m not worried about a giant dog”), robots or aliens. I don’t like sea creatures or slashers. We do, however, both like zombies, psychological horror and splatterific deaths.
We’ll be watching the classics and the not-so-classics. Everything from mainstream releases to bottom of the barrel Troma films. We have a back log of films that have been watched and need to be reviewed. Please feel free to send us your suggestions and comments.
So, why are we doing this? Alisa and I have recently discovered a shared love for all that is bloody, gory and tacky. Poking around the internet has opened up a world of laughably terrifying horror gems. Maybe we can open someone else’s eyes to the wonders of lousy cinema.
Hey, thanks for following my Deep Red Rum blog. An all 80s horror blog is a noble pursuit you have here; I had never even heard of Slime City!
You’ve got some great stuff over at Deep Red Rum! We’re hoping we didn’t bite off more than we can chew. Check out Slime City, it’s worth at least one viewing.
The 80s was a great time for movies in general, not just horror. Just watch THE ADVENTURES OF BUCKAROO BANZAI if you’re in any doubt! But seriously, there is enough prime cheesy goodness from the decade that taste forgot to keep this site going for years. I’m looking forward to seeing all the gems you two crazy kids manage to unearth.
As for suggestions, have you seen THE STUFF? Totally worth a look 🙂
I’m glad you found our little blog. We are pretty excited to watch every wonderful movie the 80’s has to offer and share them with you.
The Stuff is already on our short list! I just recently watched it for the first time and I have a whole lot to say about it.
Feel free to throw any other suggestions at me that you can think of.
Hey, thanks for following my blog. 80’s rule. I’ll definitely be covering them as I get going. In the meantime I might have to peruse your posts for inspiration 🙂
You’re welcome! Thanks for stopping by and peruse away
Thanks for checking out The Derby Killer, and I’m now following back! Even though we review most everything, Joe watches a lot of horror old and new, while I’m a fan of schlocky monster films from the 1950s to the 1980s; we should have something interesting for you at least once a week!
Thanks, Todd! We look forward to it.
Hey. Great blog! It’s always nice to find people with similar interests! There are some pretty craptastic films you’ve got reviewed. Can’t wait to see more from you!
Thanks, Paul! We love finding like minded weirdos!
I just watched Piranha Part 2: The Spawning yesterday and thought of this blog. It’s incredibly bad and made me embarrassed for Lance Henriksen. Not to mention how embarrassed it made me feel for James Cameron. It was his first movie and he was fired a week in. His name is still credited as director because of a contract issue. Hilarious.
We are flattered that you thought of our blog while watching something so horrible. It means a lot to us! I haven’t made it to Piranha 2 yet, but I’m sure it is coming soon and I’m a huge fan of movie facts, so if you have anymore, throw them our way! Thanks.
Haha. Of course, I meant that as a compliment! I am loving the blog. One of my favorite things to do is watch shitty movies and the horror genre replete with them. Keep it up!
As far as movie facts go, I’ve got a bunch. Most of them culled from IMDb’s trivia pages. Piranha Part 2 has an interesting one. Not only was Cameron fired after a week, he wasn’t allowed to see any of his footage and ended up breaking into the editing room and made his own cut of the movie. His version wasn’t used, though I’m not sure how much better it would have been.
