    Suffer, Little Children

    ★★½

    It’s like being forced to eat a pile of something horrible for an hour and being rewarded with a burrito for your troubles. Meaning you have to get through a pile of crap but when Jeebus himself shows up in the final 10 minutes to battle the devil covered in strobe lights you know you made the right choice. Glad to finally have seen this. Triple bill this with Cathy’s Curse and Demon Witch Child for maximum brain damage.

    The Blob

    ★★★★

    Pretty in pink. I love the 80’s blob so much, it’s crazy. It’s one of those movies that is way better than it ought to be. So many setups and payoffs. The effects are awesome, the teens likable and they actually had the nerve to kill a little kid, quite horribly too. Schocked to learn it wasn’t a big succes upon it’s release. It has all the elements that I adore about this period in horror and belongs up there with the best of ‘em.

Although to be fair, most of the killings are actually done by the trapped folks amongst themselves. There's a wild sex scene in the start which is hard…

    Lady Terminator

    ★★★½

    Yes, it rips off Terminator every chance it gets. It's also full of mystical, weird and wonderful things. Plus, and that's the real kicker, the action stuff is superior and way more brutal than the majority of similar schlock from around that time. Nobody is save, people get shot up in all kinds of glorious ways. Lovers of blood squibs take note, Lady Terminator's got you covered. There's a shootout in a police station which rivals even Maniac Cop II.…
