Slasher mashes!

From here, two Mondays ago.

Chock full of horror stars, this is what I'd call a "slasher mash".

Hmm...compiling slasher mashes would be a fun post...stay tuned.

So, here it is!

Waxwork (1988)

See here, here, and here.

Also has David Warner, Patrick Macnee, and Miles O'Keeffe, as Dracula.

Waxwork II (1992)

Ditto the links above.

Did I mention it has Bruce Campbell?

Body Bags (1993)

See here, and here.

Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (1994)

See here, and here.

Seen it now.
Oh, man, bad.

Terrible lighting, and camera work, the Pumpkinhead monster is too visible, and moves like a guy in a Godzilla suit, and just looks awful.
No, the guy who played Godzilla was a pro, more like a Power Rangers monster.

Anyway, it's really only neat to see all the guest stars.
As a straight ahead horror flick, it's kind of ass.
Not "The Curse", bad, but...meh.

Wishmaster (1997)

See here.

Freddy vs Jason (2003)

See here, and here.

2001 Maniacs (2005)

See here, and here.

Behind The Mask: 
The Rise Of Leslie Vernon (2006)

See here.

Hatchet (2006)

See here.

Brutal Massacre: A Comedy (2007)

See here.

Hey, even though I thought it stunk, I liked the people involved.

Hatchet II (2010)

See here.

Hatchet III (2013)

See here.

So, this came out in June, and I didn't even know it....d'oh.

Seen it, and it's a blast.
It's got Zach Galligan (Billy From 'Gremlins', guy from 'Waxwork'), Danielle Harris ('Halloween 5'), Caroline Williams (Stretch from 'Texas Chainsaw 2'), Derek Mears (remake Jason), and Kane Hodder (classic Jason).

Only complaint?
Not enough Danielle Harris.
We get her naked for a bit, and she has some amusing lines, but she isn't quite the action princess she was in 2.

We get a lot more of Carolne Williams though.

Overall, decent little flick, but the cliffhanger leading toward 4 is a lot more interesting.

And, there, that little OCD chore is done.

Tomorrow, Halloween!
