What if the most scary 80’s film horror characters were alive now?

Ok, so it’s soon Halloween time, not a special event really for me except for one thing, there are more horror movies on TV. I’m a huge fan of horror movies ever since a little boy in Sweden when I first saw Jason chopping up unsuspected silly teenagers in the woods in Friday the 13th no 2. Since then my life changed, I went through all the horror movies I could get hold of, Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13 1,2,3,4,5 etc (I know they are shit but they are good shit..>), Razorback (man, that was a brilliant movie, Basketcase (really freaky movie) and so on… all the classic Hammer ones with lovely Christopher Lee (btw, read his autobiography, it’s so brilliant), Peter Cushing and Vincent Price went through my VCR for diligent watching.
I remember skipping school and cycling back with my mates for 2 hours to my house (yes, I lived in the woods) after renting Evil Dead to watch it. Sam Raimi was my god from that moment on and living in Brighton I got to see Brain Dead for the 1st time by Peter Jackson, one of the most bizarre movies but oh so fun, well ok my landlady didn’t agree completely…
I subscribed to the biggest gorefest magazine Fangoria so every month I could get advance warning of all the movies I had to see, my mom and dad really did wonder what was becoming of me.
So to celebrate the soon-to-come Halloween, will have more posts about Scream Queens, great horror movies you JUST have to watch and of course the normal pinups this month.
Hope you will enjoy and stay scared…
