Few actresses have ever shown their range and thespian abilities like Lynda Day George in the 1982 slasher movie, Pieces. Such poise. Such grace. Such gratuitous over-acting. All of this adds up to one of the best moments in horror movie history. Strap yourselves in and prepare yourself for: “Bastaaaaaaaaaard!!!”
Are you taking notes, Meryl Streep? You damn well better be. Lynda Day George took that to another level and we’re all better people for it. You want to know the sad thing about that clip though? It’s not even the best part in the movie. Pieces is in another realm when it comes to bad horror, and I mean that in the most endearing way possible. Unfortunately, the Blu-ray gods have yet to release this craptastic masterpiece, which is a god damn tragedy. Seek it out on DVD if you can, and maybe you can surprise that horror movie lover in your life for the holidays!
What’s the best way to get you out of your Monday funk? By watching 15 minutes of pure over-the-top gory awesomeness from 1983’s ‘so bad it’s good’ alien schlockfest, The Deadly Spawn.
Now if you’ve never seen The Deadly Spawn, I’m hear to tell you that you’re completely missing out. What boggles my mind is that I remember watching this on basic TV in the afternoon, with full gore intact, when I was about 10-years-old. If you have a fetish for seeing old people get attacked and bitten by baby aliens with jagged teeth, then today’s your lucky day. Make sure to check out the clip around 7 minutes in if you want to see that madness unfold, but I highly recommend watching the whole 15 minutes.
