Now I definitely searched the forums for this movie, and nothing came up. If someone finds otherwise, point me in the right direction.

 

My boyfriend and I just finished watching one of the most insane horror movies from the late '80s. And we stumbled upon it! This movie is straight up craze balls. There's random gratuitous ass and titty shots that make you convince yourself one of the actresses and the director might have been fucking. One of the characters, possessed by a demon, draws lipstick slowly over her chest and nipple, and then proceeds to press the entire tube of lipstick into (and subsequently THROUGH) her nipple, into her chest. The character that walks in on her, moments later gets his eyes popped right into his skull.

 

Who knows with this crazy and AMAZING awful piece of work what they were thinking. Parts of worked for us. Most of it was crazy. The LINES in this. An old man shakes his fist at a kid, in the beginning and says "YOU SONOFABITCH" shaking his fist like the most stereotypical crotchety old man.

 

At one point, to get a party started, someone says they brought a strobe light from home because their parents were "former acid heads". Spoiler alert! It really DOES get the party started for some reason.

 

Also, this is one of the very rare horror movies, especially of its time, to have the ONLY black character be a complete coward, AND survive. Well.... he redeems himself at the VERY end. But MAN does he take his time.

 

There's a pretty psychedelic dance sequence in which one of the characters, dressed as a bride in black, is spinning to the strobe light while demonic sounding backward-speaking Latin metallica music plays in the background.

 

These are just mere moments from this full on crazy wild ride of a horror movie. The first 45 minutes is literally all exposition. But once all the characters look into a mirror, shit his the fan and it doesn't stop spattering all over the floors and walls of and ceilings of this crazy frickin' movie until the very last frame

I just watched this last night as my roommate rented it from netflix and yeah, it's definitely worth a recommendation for entertainingly bad. I laughed a good few times.

 

Also fun to note are the random changes in film quality in some scenes. First and most notably being a scene where the camera spins around from within the circle of teens. It's obviously a handheld camera lol

 

The setting was interesting, being an old abandoned mortuary, I think they did an... okay job of making it seems expansive, despite the limited rooms that get explored. It was dark and confusing, and super dirty, yet somehow that's a great invitation for horny teens to fool around. I guess tetanus IS the least of their worries.

AKA, "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by Bauhaus.

I'm just going to say that this really should be used for a future episode around Halloween. This movie as Jason would say is "bonkers"

 

A group of teens decide to party at Hull House (in this movie its an abandoned funeral parlor). All of the tropes are there; the jock, the nerd, the prep, the virgin, the slut, the bitch, & the black guy. There is gratuitous nudity, a tit that eats a lipstick, a fireplace flash-dance, horrible dialogue (including ADR), crazy practical effects, a truly strange ending with an old man, and is only 89 minutes long.

 

I originally saw this at a sixth-grade slumber party. I love it, but it's completely terrible. Like horribly sexist and terrible but also absurd. To any 80's horror fan this film is very much at home in all of the cliches of that era.

 

Also, this movie had two sequels and a reboot in 2008.

So for this; that song is Stigmata Martyr from the band Bauhaus (with Peter Murphy front man)
