Episode 75: New Years Evil (1980)

Rundown

2016 has been a real crap year, so of course it needs to end with an equally crappy horror movie about an totally-unmasked killer stalking women to kill as midnight rings in each timezone! That's right, the boys are ringing in the new year with 1980s New Years Eeeeeeeeeeevil. This film is what you'd imagine a quaalude nap at Studio 54 felt like, though there would've probably been a ton more nudity there too, so really, that's a lame example anyway. Nevermind, we have eeeeeeeevil to discuss, so if you're really eeeeeeeeeevil, put on your best Christmas-ribbon dress, slap some rouge across that eeeeeeevil face, and LISTEN. TO. THE REPLAY on the first Horror Movie Night of 2017!
