It’s a Horror to Know You: Stevil1981

1. What is the first film that ever scared you?

I’d have to say Spookies from 1986. I’m almost ashamed to say it as it’s such a goofy movie but man, that birthday scene at the start (shudder)

2. What is the last film that scared you?

I think someone else said this but Insidious had me pretty freaked for days after watching it.

3. Name three Horror movies that you believe are underrated.

The Feast trilogy. It’s almost unknown (at least it seems that way to me, nobody I know has seen any of them). For the most part I prefer psychological horror and anything with dense atmosphere over blood and guts but there’s a part of me that’s a total gorehound especially when it’s got it’s tongue lodged in it’s cheek, oh and cats getting raped by monsters, yeah cats getting raped by giant monsters that’s always good.

4. Name three horror movies that you enjoy against your better judgment.

The above mentioned Spookies (really can’t help myself)

Basket Case. I love this movie but when I tried to watch it with my girlfriend there was continual eye rolling and total bafflement as to why anyone would spend any money on it.

The Bronx Warriors. I mean… WOW! just WOW! It’s terrible but….no, no, no, I don’t even know where to begin with this one, just watch it and be careful you don’t break your jaw when it hits the floor.

5. Send us to five places on the Internet

Hysteria Lives. Extremely thorough slasher site from the UK.

BadMovies.Org. Really funny reviews from a guy who clearly knows his stuff.

Inferno Music Vault. This guy has extensively compiled soundtracks to some really awesome movies sometimes they’re rips from official soundtracks sometimes VHS rips (Looker soundtrack by Barry Devorzon!) always great.

Cinemassacre. I’m sure most readers know of James’s work but for anyone who hasn’t been here before it’s well worth getting initiated.

Urban Legends Demos. Sorry I’m not normally one for shameless self promotion but this is the bandcamp for a musical collaboration I make up 50% of. We write songs based on urban legends. Right now only our rough demos are up but we’ll be starting work on our first proper record in a month or so.

    Don’t be ashamed to love Spookies that movie is awesome! And such incredibly cool special effects!!!I’ve only seen the first FEAST but I thought it was well done and I was seriously prepared to hate it after the “Project Greenlight” thing. I’ll have to catch the other two although I’m sensitive to cat abuse! I need to see Bronx Warriors on DVD too. It looks so bright and colorful in those youtube clips and I’ve only see it on a ratty VHS. Basketcase is a work of genius that’s all I know about that. Thanks for these stellar picks and Spookies forever!

    Also, excellent job on those Urban Legends songs. When you said “demo” I thought they would be rough sounding but they sound great! Brilliant idea! Don’t ever be worried about self-promoton, you’re doing people a favor letting them know about your work!

    Folks, you really should listen to this song “The Babysitter and the man upstairs”! So good!

    Hey Unk thanks, really glad you like it.

    Yes, “Spookies”! A USA Up All Night classic! I second that emotion! Glad to see someone else enjoys this weird little oddity. You can find the whole movie on YouTube, btw.

    I came to the comments prepared to say something along the lines of “I’ve only seen the first Feast but I thought it was well done and I was seriously prepared to hate it after the ‘Project Greenlight’ thing” but Unk covered that nicely. If the other Feasts are worthy too, I’ll definitely have to seek them out.

    I love Spookies too! That spider woman freaked me the fek out. Of course being terrified beyond ridiculous of spiders doesn’t help….

    You know it’s funny, I’d never even heard of Project Greenlight, then after watching the movies I looked back over the history and found out about it there. Maybe that helped with my enjoyment of the series.
