Killer Party (1986)

Killer Party (1986)

Country:  Canada

Director: William Fruet

Main Stars: Martin Hewitt, Ralph Seymour, Elaine Wilkes, Sherry Wilis-Burch, Alicia Fleer, Joanna Johnson

Storyline: A group of young girls try to join a sorority and are part of a hazing at a haunted house.

Review (Spoils): A small group of friends (who look in their thirties so bad selection of girls for the part) want to stick together and join a girls sorority. So to make the cut then need to do a large amount of stupid stuff like stealing shirts from the boys group, setup props, raw egg eating, goats eyes and goat heads. While this is going on for a near hour of the film, we have backstory (with lack of information) of a once man named Adam who was killed and haunting and old sorority house.

This movie did not age well. The film is acting silly and boring for the first hour … if you can survive it then the actual last part is actually entertaining. Outside the stupidness of the storyline when the haunting possession kicks in it is actual fun ride for about 15-20min. The special effects of the demon possession is actually fun and well done. It reminded actual of Evil Dead for the last 15min. too bad the film is poor and boring till that point.

Rating: Not the greatest 80s horror film at all. It is stupid when it comes to all the college crap and boy chasing crap. However, if you can get past that the ending is entertaining and the special effects are cool. So we have 80s chicks, tight t-shirt boys and a bee scene which gives us the typical 80s TA.

Just Before Dawn (1981)

Just Before Dawn (1981)

Country: USA

Director: Jeff Lieberman

Main Stars: George Kennedy, Mike Kellin, Chris Lemmon, Gregg Henry, Deborah Benson, Ralph Seymour, Katie Powell, Jamie Rose

Storyline: A group of young people got some property and want to check it out. After being advised of a machete wielding maniac they still go for the weekend.

MV5BMjAzNTk3NzMzNF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwODg5NDAzMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR4,0,214,317_AL_Review (Spoils): Park ranger Roy McLean (George Kennedy) warned the kids multiple times but still the young group take their van deep into the backwoods. Not sure why we have an odd mix of couples but these films love the third wheel guy.

So we have typical warnings, some skinny dipping, machete in the nuts, hillbillies, machete to the hand, some stabbings, some bad make-up and the classic fist in the mouth scene. We have everything that you would want in a bad acting redneck inbreed film.

Rating: This film screams total influence to The Wrong Turn and it does not do too badly of a job of it even though the warnings and some of the character actions are whacked. Sure it’s your typical storyline for the hillbillies in the woods films but it was one of the first next to The Hills Have Eyes. But the film has its own twists and leaves the audience with a bit of cliff hanger.
