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!
Another BYE week for our friends and programmer in Austin so I decided to pick something from the many VHS tapes my friend has acquired over the past few months. There were a few that I knew were winners, or things I have seen before, but I wanted to go with something completely off my radar. A big part of the fun of Horror Movie Night is discovering new older horror flicks that I missed on my many trips to the local mom-and-pop shop. So I went with Moon in Scorpio (1987). Murder on a boat sounded good and it stars the great Britt Ekland and William Smith – what could go wrong? A lot, it seems.
