2104 is almost here! And I know what you’re thinking…..why haven’t there been any good horror movies centered around New Year’s Eve? And to that I say…..Pfffft! Have you not seen New Year’s Evil??? Ok – that’s a bad example because it sucks. But maybe when you were younger, you stumbled across this gem from 1987:
Yes….it’s Bloody New Year! And it even has a snappy tagline to coincide with the joyous ringing in of a new year: ‘Should old aquaintance be forgot? Or just brutally murdered.‘ Ooooooh. Are you intrigued? Well, you really shouldn’t be because the point of this post is to ask if the VHS cover is better than the actual movie. And in this case, it is.
Haha! Look at that skeleton on the cover! Here’s got a New Year’s party favor in his mouth AND a party hat on! And trust me, it’s more entertaining than anything in the movie. However, if you are looking for a horror movie that is based around New Year’s Eve that makes absolutely no sense at all, in a cheesy good kind of way, give Bloody New Year a whirl. For me, I’ll just keep looking at that VHS cover for my entertainment. Haha – did I mention that the skeleton has a party favor in his mouth!?! And that disco ball in the background only means one thing: that skeleton is gonna get down and get funky! Happy New Year, everyone!
