Here we go again with my walk down Rental Regrets lane, where I come up with a horror movie from the 80’s that I kinda wish I would have rented. I watched literally hundereds of horror movies back then, but there are always a few that slipped through my chubby teenage fingers while I was at my favorite Mom & Pop video store. So what forgotten 80’s horror nugget is on my brain today?
Oh yeah! It’s Sorority House Massacre – another slasher movies in a sea of slasher movies that came out at that time. But look – there’s a scantily-dressed young lady on the cover about to remove her lingerie! How did I not rent this?!? Well, to be honest – I was most likely bored of the ‘slasher genre’ in the 80’s. They were a dime a dozen, and as much as I like girls running around in their underwear and having pillow fights while I murderer watches from an outside window……I became numb to all of it. But I have to say, I’m having regrets from not renting Sorority House Massacre and I think what sealed it for me (other than the above lingerie) was when I finally watched the trailer on Youtube:
Does this movie take place in Bedrock? Because I could have sworn I heard some Flintstones sound effects in there a few times. Anyway, time for me to stop procrastinating and start watching this sucker. Until then, I’ll just keep gazing up at the hot and sexy……..tagline ‘A slash course in absolute terror!‘.
What do you get the horror fan in your life that already has everything? Why you get them a rare video store standee from the 1986 sci-fi/horror flick Critters, that’s what!
On Ebay right now, someone is selling a vintage display that was used to promote Critters when it made it’s debut on VHS back in 1986. You remember VHS tapes, right? Standing about 4 feet tall and holding the actual video cassette case from the movie, this standee is actually that kind of thing that I love Ebay for. I remember seeing this exact one in my local Mom & Pop video store growing up and if I had the room, I just might slap a bid down on this cheesy piece of nostalgia.
What perfect timing too, because with the holidays right around the corner, maybe you can surprise that special Critters fan who’s always wanted something like this. Or you’ll get it for them and they’ll look at you confused and say “What the hell did you get me this for?” You’ll get a reaction either way! There are three days left to bid and at the time I’m posting this, the bid is at $100. Head on over right HERE and take a look. Beats the hell out of getting someone another pair of socks.
