If you were wondering whether we're tired of meta horror yet, here's your answer: nope! Matt chose a real banger this week, the alien-frog-with-laser-eyes romp THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE (1992). There are punks, bros, hot ladies, skinny-dipping, a ridiculous monster with even more ridiculous weaknesses, and even a boom mic getaway. This one is a cult classic for a reason, and it's save to say it checks all of the HMN boxes!
Just when you thought you had escaped the mediocrity of the Amityville Horror franchise, we remind you that things got really weird once the evil in the house started possessing random decorations. The clock is ticking, so join our discussion about AMITYVILLE 1992: IT'S ABOUT TIME! There's the dad from Monster Squad, the girl from PCU, and an old lady gets speared through the chest with a stork statue. Read that again. STORK. STATUE. KILL. That's about all we need to get a good episode out of this one, but rest assured, there's more to talk about than just that. But really. Stork statue kill.
Continuing last week's spectacle of cat abuse, we're setting sail for parts unknown with a killer mutant tabby and there's nothing to eat except champagne and cereal... and rat poison. You might have guessed it, we're talking 1988's Uninvited and man, what a ride. We are joined again by our resident Film Freak, horror handyman Kyle Kuchta, as we wax poetic about animal shelters, Clu Gulager's fake teeth, how much cats hate wine, and why you should never pick up strays. How much would YOU debase yourself for a suitcase full of dirty money? This is the question that burns within our psyches daily, but can finally elaborate upon with each other, this week on Horror Movie Night!
