  • Spookies 1986

    ★★★ Watched 15 Oct, 2014 1

    Just about as terrifying as its title, Spookies never gives you the willies, but you might die from laughter or sheer bewilderment.

    Essentially two movies awkwardly stitched together (and the seams really show) Spookies has no real plot but makes up for this by relentlessly bombarding the stupefied audienced with all kinds of bat-shit insane monsters.

    "Week 1 of the Adapted April Challenge"

    Film 3 of the Top 50 Horror Project

    I was very excited that my first assignment was to be Candyman , a movie that I wanted to see for a long time. I had heard very much about it, but mostly that it was an important horror movie everyone interested in horror should see. So I knew nothing specific about it and just figured it would be an usual horror flick about an…
