"Chris, I owe you a public apology cuz when you told me this is what we were watching, I thought, "We're not watching that. That's not going to happen. I'm not going to allow that." And, dude, I'm wicked happy that it happened so, thank you." Brian Verderosa, Talking Movies
"A lot of love was put in to this movie, and someone clearly wanted people to have a good time." Nick Scalia, Talking Movies
The Talking Movies crew smell and hunt down Jim Wynorski's Chopping Mall, training a deadly laser at it's head, only to invite it to a Furniture Store party after it charms them all.
What do you think of Chopping Mall?
Do you guys know of any Eighties Slasher gems that might be hidden?
PODCAST MUSINGS ANSWERED The movie that Allison and Ferdy are watching in Chopping Mall was Roger Corman's 'Attack Of The Crab Monsters' (1957).
“Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue, don’t subdue if you can pacify, and don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve extended it.”
An engaging but under-remembered Eighties horror film that might be considered a slasher film is "Dead and Buried" from 1981; directed by Gary Sherman, the plot revolves around the small town of Potter's Bluff where a series of murders is committed...by what seems the population of the entire town! (No spoilers, that's in the opening scene!) It's dripping with a creepy, semi-Lovecraftian atmosphere, and an engaging cast of veteran character actors (look for a pre-Freddy Robert Englund) bring a clever script with hints of dark comedy to life.
