Sunday Movie:: Cellar Dweller (1988) (Via Comet TV)

May 14th, 2017 by unkle lancifer · 3 Comments

Have you ever spent the better part of a day sobbing uncontrollably while throwing fine china against the wall because the multi-talented JOHN CARL BUECHLER (TROLL) never directed a movie based on a screenplay written by DON (CHILD’S PLAY) MANCINI? Well, stop doing that because such a film does indeed exist and it goes by the name CELLAR DWELLER. It just so happens to be the greatest horror film involving comic books that takes place in an artist colony that features JEFFREY COMBS ever made. I wrote about it way back HERE and I do believe my only major gripe was that the monster was too adorable. Anyway, today is the luckiest day of your entire life because our good pals over at the best TV station ever invented, COMET TV are showing it for free at four, HERE! I think we should ALL watch it but only after we’ve called our moms and wished them a Happy Mother’s Day. Did I mention the ultimate, quintessential horror momma YVONNE DE CARLO is in this movie making it a perfectly fine choice for Mother’s Day? She is! Happy Mother’s Day!

I. Love. This. Movie. I am so glad that you mention the many, many joys of this fun little, forgotten flick. I still have the Fangoria issue that had an article on this film, and was quoting it at JCB when I met him at Horrorhound Weekend last fall. He actually seemed somewhat touched that someone remembered that this film exists. (Then I droned on and on about how his Friday the 13th entry was easily the best one.) It always makes me happy when others love the same gems that I do.

Let’s face, Tina’s Mom’s hair is the real star of the show. I think we raved about this on my IAHTKY way back.
