The People Under the Stairs

Posted by knobbygirl

I figured out who THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS are. Remember all those second and third tier hair bands from the 80s? Most of them had an "-er" in the name - WingER, TrixtER, SlaughtER, CindERella, etc. When grunge hit the scene in 1991 (the very year this movie was released), hair bands went out of fashion and were no longer profitable.

Office Killer

Posted by knobbygirl

My office needs one of these.

All kidding aside, every office has at least one. One person that is undeniably, certifiably insane. Batshit, Nutso, Loco, the elevator doesn't go all the way to the top floor. We've got a guy who hears voices, one of which is Jesus. We even have a guy who refers to himself in third person and that we think may show up with a gun and mow everyone down one day...but we don't have anyone like Dorine Douglas.

I Know What You Did Last Summer

Posted by knobbygirl

So...the obvious question - Scream vs. I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Again, I'm coming to the party late. Having seen Scream shortly after it was released on video, I have an automatic bias towards Scream. Scream netted 2 sequels, while I Know What You Did Last Summer netted only one - and it starred Brandy. Huh?. Scream definitely has the better franchise.

Student Bodies

Posted by knobbygirl

Before Scary Movie, there was Student Bodies.

I certainly don't mean to imply that Student Bodies invented the horror spoof - or even perfected it...both honors that belong to Mel Brooks. But it definitely holds a special place in my heart - because it's just SO FUCKING GOOFY. The rubber chicken? The horsehead bookends? The body count? Malvert?

Shaun of the Dead

Posted by knobbygirl

Zombie flicks are my second favorite kind of horror movie, right behind vampire flicks, but way ahead of number three, which are those starring deranged hillbillies. (I have yet to see a movie that utilizes all three, although Redneck Zombies comes tantalizingly close.)

Scarecrow Gone Wild

Posted by knobbygirl

Honestly, I expect more "wild" from a film with "Gone Wild" in the title. Don't get me wrong, there was boobage...just not good boobage. There's nothing wild about fake middle aged boobs or nipples-only pre-teen boobs. Frankly, I'm disappointed in the makers of the Girls Gone Wild films. They would have done well to stick with college girls with low self esteem, instead of branching out into the world of killer scarecrows.

Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland

Posted by knobbygirl

Would snorting Drano actually kill a person?

We all know that drinking it will - but would snorting it be just as deadly? According to the third installment of the Sleepaway Camp trilogy, snorting drain cleaner seems to be even more deadly than drinking it, as the lady who did the snorting didn't even have time to utter "cornuts" as she slumped dead in her convertible.
