VHS Memories XII: 80's Grab Bag
Here are some random 80's flicks. Some good, some bad, some meh.
To finish things off, here's a notorious Scott Spiegel slasher set in a grocery store. Shot in 1989 and cut all to hell by the MPAA, it has finally been given an uncut release by Synapse Films. The story is pretty pedestrian (outside of an odd twist at the end) but the real showcase here is the incredibly gory set of murders featured. Both Sam and Ted Raimi meet gruesome ends, a guy has his head crushed in a baler and there's much more in the first big job for KNB. It's certainly worth a look and as one who works in a grocery store, I can say that they made full use of the location which is exactly what a movie set in a specific location should do.
