Top Five Favorite Films From 1987

Secret of My Success (1987)

It’s been quite a while (over six months!!!) but I’m back today with another favorite film list. This time the year is 1987 and I’ve got to tell you, this isn’t getting any easier as we move through the ’80s. After a couple of passes through the list of potential entries I still had 26 films that were in contention! You can check out my previous lists here: 1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 | 1986 … Continue reading

Big Trouble For The Dream Warriors

2015 HorrorHound Indianapolis - LoPan (original)

So it’s nearly WrestleMania time once again! In less than a week, Pip will make his yearly trek to Cleveland for a weekend of pretending we’re way younger than we actually are, movie viewing and general bad behavior. I won’t speak for him but I look forward to our twice yearly get togethers and I start counting down to his Cleveland trip pretty much from the time I pull out of his driveway on my … Continue reading

Top Five Favorite Films From 1984

Police Academy (1984)

It’s been a while but I’m back again with another top five list, this time 1984. I won’t bury the lead here… this was the most difficult list I’ve come up with yet! I thought 1982 was difficult but this one puts it to shame. WOW… so many amazing films were released in 84! So basically, the way I make these lists are go through every movie and narrow it down to a list of … Continue reading

Meeting Robert Englund – Welcome To Prime Time Chewie

Robert Englund & Chewie

In a recent post I talked about how I got to cross off a bucket list item last month when Pip and I attended HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis and I got to meet Barry Bostwick.  The last line of that particular post I ended like this: “The weekend didn’t end there… I had another “nightmarish” encounter at the same show.  But that will be covered in another post.”  And finally… here’s the other post.  If you couldn’t … Continue reading

A Nightmare On Pip Street

Pip As Freddy

I just simply HAD to share this.  Check out Pip’s bad ass Halloween costume this year!  As you may or may not know, Pip and I are pretty hard core horror movie buffs.  In fact, we’ve taken this love for horror and actually turned it into something… We’re in the process of launching a website where we’ll talk nothing but horror movies and reviews.  When you get a moment check out www.scaretissue.com for all the … Continue reading

Freddy’s Back… Sort Of… “A Nightmare On Elm Street”

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

The wife isn’t a huge horror movie fan, but she’ll indulge me once a year on Halloween.  Last year we watched Psycho and the previous year we checked out the original Halloween.  I’d had the remake of A Nightmare On Elm Street sitting on my shelf for quite a few months now and I figured Halloween night was a good opportunity to check it out. In a word… meh. First off, the flick starts in … Continue reading

11 Years And We’re Still Screaming For Scream 4

Scream 4 (2011)

I don’t go to the movies all that often these days but when it comes to a good horror franchise I just can’t pass it up.  I consider the Scream franchise one of the best in horror over the last couple of decades so Marko and I headed to the theater on opening weekend to check this one out. I was not a huge fan of the third entrance into this series (that’s the one … Continue reading

Hockey Masks, Razor Blades & Impalements… Oh My

Scream

The fall seems to be synonymous with horror movies.  It might be due to a little flick called Halloween.  In any case I’m a HUGE fan of the genre (as evidenced by the fact that Pip and I started a horror movie review website called ScareTissue).  For my money I’d pick a horror/slasher flick any day of the week.  Sure they’re campy, gory and go for the surprise factor but I absolutely LOVE them.  For … Continue reading

Is My Childhood Being Raped?

Child Of The 80's

I was born in the mid 70’s. It was before we had hundreds of channels on TV and it was before there was a blockbuster a week in the theaters.  There are comic, cartoon and movie properties that are so ingrained into my being that they are a part of me… and they’re all being redone for the sake of the almighty dollar. Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Halloween, Friday The 13th, Tron… I could … Continue reading
