And here’s The Weekly ShoutOUT™. Each week we’re going to focus on one out athlete/performer and feature a daily pic and career timeline. We’ll be showcasing the big names, but also the lesser-known gay celebs who deserve more recognition. This week we give a ShoutOUT to … Wentworth Miller. Wentworth got his start on an episode of Buffy, but his big break came in 2002, when he starred on the big budget ABC mini-series Dinotopia.
Now, presenting … THE TOP 40 HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! Journey with me back to the birth of the Dead Teenager movie (actually, that began in the 70’s, so I guess it would be the Afterbirth Of The Dead Teenager Movie), the last gasps of the Italian Horror Masters, and the franchises that still continue today. Yes, your Freddy, Jason, and Chucky will be represented, but I’m also going to pay tribute to the obscurities that deserve to be seen. And here we have the TOP TEN HORROR FILMS OF THE 80’S! At #2 is the SNICKS DRIVE IN DOUBLE FEATURE… Night Of The Creeps/Night Of The Comet
It’s difficult to do horror satire successfully, but the films tied at #2 not only achieve that goal, but they also work as straight horror films, and in the case of the latter film, as romantic fluff.
Night Of The Creeps isn’t very well known, but it should be. Alien slugs crash to earth, turning frat kids into zombies. Two frat pledges discover the grisly truth, and try to fight the invasion. Oh, did I mention they’re at Corman University? If that means something to you, then you’ll probably enjoy this underrated gem. And I think this may have been the first time I ever heard the expression “Screaming Like Banshees.”
Part horror, part sci-fi, part romance, Night Of The Comet stars Catherine Mary Stewart and Kelli Maroney as Valley Girl sisters who survive when a comet brings the zombie apocalypse. Featuring Mary Woronov, Chakotay and an awesome 80’s synth soundtrack, it’s a lot of fun, with some actual scares along the way. A perfect 80’s time capsule.
