Synopsis: A thorough examination and reminiscence on an underappreciated horror film.

Our Thoughts:  1989 was not the best time for horror film fans.  The early 80’s slasher genre was all but dead, the innovative directors of the decade were starting to slow down, and a plethora of questionable sequels like Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason takes Manhattan and Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child filled your local multiplex.  This is not to say that I didn’t see these films; in fact, I saw pretty much all of them in the theater.  As a junior in high school who was obsessed with heavy metal and horror, it is pretty much a certainty that if you could get in a time machine and travel back to 1989, you would invariably find me and my friends at the theater on opening night, along with the raucous teen audiences who made even these “lesser lights” of the horror genre successes.    read more
