Make sure to shine that flashlight at the TV when watching Humongous.
"Dark" is an understatement
Tell me about it! Haha, I could hardly see a third of it!
Still, it was a fine waste of time. Stupid characters played by bad actors are always good for entertainment!
Perhaps that laserdisc edition of "Humongous" is not as dark... the screenshots certainly look much crisper, unless they're promotional stills.
That's what I'm hoping, but I don't have a laserdisc player to even check it out, let alone convert it. Anyone wanna step up and grab/convert it? I'd gladly donate like five bucks
Never cared for Humongous. The creepy poster is better than the actual movie!

The Humongous laserdisc grab could be an idea for fanedit.org...
Moon In Scorpio (1987)
This one sure is obscure, taking place on a boat. The story hardly made sense but you get a few neat killings and Britt Ekland in the nuthouse. Sadly this is not available on DVD but I think MGM hold the rights. Here's hoping for a Midnite release someday ...
The best obscure slasher within a slasher? CO-ED FRENZY from BLOW OUT. Man that movie would have ruled.
You know it comes with subtitles right? The dubbing was awful and I was literally praying for there to be subtitles.
I just watched this one too and really enjoyed it. It never takes itself too seriously but at the same time it doesn't go too far into the realm of goofiness. Love at the beginning when the mom was asking about the dog.....
Let's write it, Rhett. What do you say?
American Nightmare (1983)
Canadian slasher with Michael Ironside and Alexandra Paul of Baywatch fame.
There was a VHS of this movie put out by Media Home Entertainment in the 1980's.
This movie has a high sleaze factor like Maniac (1980) and The New York Ripper.
Needs a DVD release.
Looks like Cold Prey will finally get a US release. In a recent ad, Anchor Bay has it listed for "early 2009".
I think you're confusing the recent COLD PREY with the classic "It's not human and it's got an axe!" THE PREY. I'd love to see THE PREY finally get released. Didn't Anchor Bay once say they were releasing it, back in the MADMAN days?
No, Anchor Bay got the rights to Cold Prey aka Fritt Vilt awhile back. I am glad of it, it is a good movie that deserves a bigger audience and hopefully it will hasten the DVD release of part 2 once it hits.
The Prey was supposed to be paired with The Pit but AB dropped their plans because they couldn't track down the unrated print of The Prey? I think that is what I've heard.
I honestly wouldn't mind the R-Rated version of The Prey on DVD though.
Yeah, that movie is so bad/awesome I'd take it any way I can get. As long as the Eisensteinian sheriff/vulture/corpse editing montage remains, I'm sold. Oh, and that joke he speaks to that fawn too. :lol:
Man, I LOVED The Prey. Cheesy as hell, so much animal/forest footage spliced in that it looked like a bad nature show from the 70s, a great ending (well, depending on what your opinion of "great" is, but I found it fun), etc.
The oddest thing about that movie from what I can remember is that the kids going into the woods weren't that annoying and they were all actually good-looking people. Those tend to be rare in 80s slashers.
Here's hoping Anchor Bay puts it out, but I'm willing to bet it's Cold Prey that's coming out and The Prey will stay unreleased forever
I recently saw The Cottage and though it's not a standard slasher film I liked it a lot. The slasher scenes reminded me a little of Hatchet, which was great in its own right. The Cottage featured humor that actually worked and some really effective scares.
I'm really gonna have to see if I can go rent this or something.
