After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!
1981 must have been a hell of a year for mining horror. Just a couple months in and the Canadian spelunking slasher My Bloody Valentine hacked its way into the hearts of horror fans everywhere. Little did they know that an American production was underway for release in September that would also bring terror up from the mines. This film would not be a hack-and-slash flick like its predecessor, but instead contain killer creatures from deep within the Earth – The Boogens.
