Well, I took about a week’s hiatus from writing and decided to come back with a ridiculous post about horror movie posters that have my first name on them. Nothing but the best bottom-of-the-barrel writing here, folks! Oh, but it’s not just any movie or movie poster that I’m talking about. It’s none other than the 1983 British alien horror movie Xtro!!!!
See, my name is Tony. And in the poster up there, in case you couldn’t see the large font, it says “When Tony grows up, he’s going to be just like Daddy!“. So naturally when I was younger and saw this, I got excited since me and the kid in the movie apparently had the same name. And then I watched the movie and was less excited. Actually, I take that back. Xtro is pure entertaining horror movie trash and it should be praised for that.
Do you want to see an alien rape a woman? Xtro has you covered! Want to see a woman give birth to a full-grown alien man? Xtro has that too! In fact, the more that I think about it, Xtro has everything you could possibly want in an 80’s horror movie! Including my name as a character in the movie and on the poster like I’ve already mentioned a few times. Now I know what you’re thinking……How does a woman give birth to a full-grown man? I wouldn’t leave you hanging with that inquisition, so check out the clip below to see!
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!
