This would be an awesome Halloween episode, or just a great episode in general. There's so much to unpack with this one. First off, it was written by Harvey Weinstein. It also features a ton of recognizable actors and some of the shortest shorts in cinema history. One of the camp counselors is played by a young and slightly less bald Jason Alexander, and Holly Hunter has a small role as a teenage camper. As well as the great Fisher Stevens, who would go on to deliver an overtly racist performance as an Indian man in "Short Circuit" (1&2) .It hits a lot of the familiar slasher movie beats, some kids play a prank on the camp janitor, resulting in him being severely burned (just like in the title... get it?). He comes back a few years later to seek revenge on the campers, which basically just entails him mutilating them all with a pair of hedge tremors. It falls in line with "Sleepaway Camp", and after seeing it, I'm sure it served as an influence on "Wet Hot American Summer". It has a massive cult following, and it's free for your viewing pleasure on Youtube. http://www.imdb.com/...8/?ref_=nv_sr_2
I thought of this while listening to "The Color of Night" episode. The basic plot involves a guy following his seemingly mild-mannered co-worker (Kathleen Turner) one night, discovering that she moonlights as a prostitute called "China Blue". Also that China is being stalked by a bat-shit insane street preacher (Anthony Perkins), who wants to "save her soul" by stabbing her to death with a sharpened dildo. Ya' know, that old trope. And that's just the beginning. Auteur Ken Russell directs, adding his bizarre touch to this sleazy erotic thriller, which actually makes it way more watchable than it otherwise would've been. And it's chock full of next level bonkers dialogue that you will quote forever. This could make for a mind-blowing episode. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087100/?ref_=nm_flmg_dr_35
