Sometimes there’s a character in a horror movie that we wish would have stayed around a little longer, just so we could get more of their zany antics. Case in point: Wooley from the original Dawn Of The Dead!
Now, slight spoiler alert before you watch the following clip: Wooley dies. Yeah, he deserves it. But man oh man is it fun to watch him go full on ‘ape shit’ before he bites the bullet. Wooley is a self-proclaimed hothead and doesn’t mind spouting off the occasional racial slur either. All the more reason that it’s best that Ken Foree takes him down before he could do anymore damage with his gun or his mouth. So let’s pull up a chair and enjoy Wooley’s final 48 seconds of glory in Youtube form:
Have you ever been in your gym having a nice workout and wondered if it was possessed? Maybe the bad body odor going through the air can play tricks on your mind, making you think that something is controlling everyone’s smelly armpits. Well, I’m here to tell you that your gym probably isn’t haunted. But in the 1989 horror movie Death Spa (also awesomely known as Witch Bitch), there is a haunted gym/spa and it’s killing people in fun ways!
Welcome to Sunday Bloody Sunday, where I am indeed highlighting the movie Death Spa. A first-time watch for me recently, this movie is pure 80’s horror cheesy greatness. How I let this one slip by me for this long is beyond me. And one of the things that makes it great, besides the 80’s aerobic outfits and multiple boob sightings, are some inventive kills. Case in point, the one below where a woman is literally torn apart by a shattering mirror. But don’t take my word for it – click below to see, and do yourself a favor and watch the whole movie. And horror favorite Ken Foree is in it too!
Sometimes you have to go back to the classics. And for me, one of my personal horror classics is the original Dawn Of The Dead. Forget all of the social commentary though, let’s talk zombie death scenes!
On this edition of Monday Bloody Monday, I want to take a minute to bow our heads (slight pun there) to remember one of my favorite zombies from Dawn Of The Dead: The abandoned hangar zombie. He wasn’t with us very long, but what a memorable time he gave us while he was here. If you needed proof that zombies aren’t too smart after they’re resurrected, look no further than this poor bastard walking literally into his own death. At least that death was swift and quick by the hands of some merciless helicopter propellor blades. As a bonus in the clip, you get to watch Peter (Ken Foree) mow down some zombie kids with a machine gun to some rather hilarious music!
