Retro Trailer: "Slumber Party Massacre 2" (1987)

Back in the day, one of my favorite VHS tapes from my collection was "Slumber Party Massacre." Not so much for the movie, which was just a pretty run of the mill slasher flick, but for the trailer of "Slumber Party Massacre 2", which is honestly the most hilariously crazy trailer I have ever seen in my entire life. To this day, I have not seen the actual movie, but a recent browse through some of my old VHS tapes made me think of it and I am determined to check it out in the near future.

Retro Trailer: "The Stuff"

So apparently, if you are a miner and you witness a strange goo-like substance erupting from the earth deep within your mine shaft, your first instinct would be to taste the stuff. Am I right?! In writer and director Larry Cohen's horror comedy, the goo found in the earth is found to be sweet, creamy, delicious and best of all no calories! Understandably so, the stuff becomes a nationwide craze (I mean, c'mon, who doesn't wanna eat stuff found oozing out of the ground?!) and even begins hurting ice cream sales.

Retro Trailer: "Bloody New Year" (1987)

Ok, ok, ok. So, technically this movie does not take place on New Year's Eve or Day, but when a group of shipwrecked teens take shelter in an abandoned hotel, it's decorated for New Years, even though it's the middle of summer. And basically what ensues is a ghost story-meets "The Evil Dead" type of tale, full of spooks, time warps, zombies and demonic possessions. A few decent scares and fun cheese can't quite make up for the bad effects and lack of logic, but at least the story line attempts to be original. It's worth a look if you are a fan of 80's cheese.
