When shy Goth girl Megan (Rainbow Harvest) moves to a new town with her recently widowed mother (Karen Black), she has a bit of trouble fitting in with her peers. Taunted by her classmates, she does manage to begin a friendship with a two teens from school, Nikki and Ron.

Medical dummies are just plain creepy. Even creepier? When said dummy is used by an emotionally distant father, who uses his ventriloquist skills to make his children believe that it's alive, which is the case in the 1988 flick "Pin".

In celebration of the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday, I thought we'd take a look at a movie that reflects the true meaning of the holiday: blood and guts and crazy people. The movie "Lovers Lane" takes the plot of an old urban legend we've all heard before and turns it into a slasher flick.

I tend to pride myself on the crazy amounts of crappy horror movies that I can tolerate and most of the time, enjoy. So when I was home sick from work this week, Netflix Instant Watch became my best friend.

Drew Barrymore stars in this low budget thriller as 14 year old Joleen Cox, an angsty teen who is finishing a cross country trip with her dad when they run out of gas in a small desert town in Nevada.

Ok, so let's just get this out in the open: If you haven't already figured it out, I am a fan of truly awful 80's cheese. I mean I like some REALLY bad stuff. Like "Uninvited," a movie about a cute cuddly kitty who has a mean mutant kitty living in it's mouth that kills people.

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.

When most of us think about Christmas, it's only natural that we think of nazi experiments involving elves, am I right?

When I heard about the Shock-O-Rama movie, "Chainsaw Sally," about a girl (April Monique Burril) who is a quiet librarian by day and a chainsaw wielding killer by night, I knew I just had to see it.

I'm not sure how a gem like this could have come out in 2006 and I completely missed it.
