This week on Sunday Bloody Sunday, I go back to a time when the USA network would show horror movies on Saturday mornings. Yes, in addition to the awesome late nightness of Up All Night, you could catch a shitty horror flick while you ate your bowl of Sugar Smacks. And one of those shitty, but enjoyable, viewings was the ridiculous, Spookies. Yep, just as eye-rolling as the name was the plot, which centered around a creepy old mansion, a Ouija board, and some farting mud men. But more notably, it involved one of the better ‘death by spider’ scenes ever, complete with a practical effect transformation of an asian woman into the killer arachnid. And poor Rich (Peter Iasillo Jr.) was the recipient of her bitchy wrath. Join me below in picture form as we applaud his sucked out head demise:
Ha haaa … it pays to have SPOOKIES on my Google Alerts! Thanks for mentioning my classic death scene. Check out the Official Spookies Facebook today. ~ Petey I.
