Here we go again with another rental regret that I have weighing on my conscience from my horror movie renting days in the 80’s. Now to clarify, this is a movie that I always saw at my local video store and for whatever reason passed over and rented something else. And now I’m having regrets! Hence the name of the post. And the movie I am speaking of is…………..
Cellar Dweller! Now, I can’t really give a valid reason as to why I never rented this – but I should have snatched it up considering those legs in the fishnet stockings on the cover. Rawwwwrrrr! I would grab those too, Mr. Monster hand. Ok, pervy me aside – the premise for Cellar Dweller sounds interesting enough:
Thirty years have passed since the grisly murder/suicide of Colin Childress, creator of the comic book, Cellar Dweller. But, as often happens to those ignorant of it, comic book artist Whitney Taylor is doomed to repeat history in a most grotesque way. Little does she know that her twisted renderings will soon reincarnate the bloody hysteria of Cellar Dweller.
Comic books, monsters, and a murder/suicide? Talk about a trifecta. Let’s take a look at the severely outdated trailer and get some more convincing:
Jeffrey Combs? Lily Munster? That guy from the 80’s show Head Of The Class that went on to be a bad director? Pentagrams written on the cover of books? Oh, how the hell did I pass this up (shakes fist vehemently in the air). Not to mention that it’s directed by John Carl Buechler (Friday The 13th Part VII, Troll) to add some more interest. Alright, I can be the bigger man and admit when I’m wrong. And I’m going to right that wrong and seek out Cellar Dweller as soon as possible to enjoy the full viewing experience!
