Jul 20, 2018
In our household, Friday the 13th is a holiday that can happen up to three times a year. This past one, July 13th, has to be one of the best ones that comes to mind. Despite the internet being broken for a period of time by Mr Briggs, and his return of the MonsterVision format, it was an event that more than delivered on its promises.
They say you can't revisit you're youth, but for an evening, I felt like I was able to. Jess had never seen MonsterVision before, so I had the double thrill of introducing it to someone else as well. Each of these films are available on Shudder.com, and I recommend each of you giving them a shot. Some of these are on the raw and gory side, but Joe Bob brings out the best in each of them.
The films shown in the marathon and discussed are Tourist Trap, Sleepaway Camp, Rabid, The Prowler, Sorority Babes at the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, Daughters of Darkness, Blood Feast, Basket Case, Re-Animator, Demons, The Legend of Boggy Creek, Hellraiser, and Pieces.
