Comment: Like a trainwreck you can't turn away from. I've just gotta see it. Truly frightening.

Girls Nite Out © 1984 [P]
Comment: Cheesy 80's slasher where the killer wears the university's mascot uniform (a bear suit), with knives as "claws." Bad, but you know I have a soft spot for all those 80's slashers.

September 20
Jack O'Lantern © 2004 [R]
Comment: Since creating this post, I have rented...paid perfectly good money for this DVD. What a shitbomb. It should have been called Turd-o-Lantern. Oh my God, what a complete and utter waste of celluloid, not to mention $4. Why this was released in "Widescreen" is beyond me. Avoid like the plague!

The Psycho movies reminded me that I saw former teen idol Tab Hunter on Larry King the other night. He was talking about his coming out of the closet finally and that one his longest relationships was with friend and fellow actor, Anthony Perkins. It's amazing how many celebrities from the past were closeted, and actually how freakin' undetectable the older generation gay actors were, like Rock Hudson(they almost seem normal! ha ha, that's just a joke). Although, Paul Lynde certainly wasn't hiding. Neat stuff.

You KNOW I already own both Olivia DVDs. They're remarkably cheesy -- I love her to death, but when videos were in their infancy, they were really really bad and, sad to say, a little boring. But then I love her and just love to see her whatever the hell she's doing.

McLibel looks awesome. I missed it when it was in the indie theaters here. Must go rent that.

Yep! I was pretty excited too. I love the sequels, though I think III is my favorite, though II has some great moments too. I'll be buying them. :D

Are you trying to tell me that Paul Lynde was gay? I guess next you'll be telling me Liberace was gay too. Hmph!

Of course I had you in mind when I posted the Olivia DVDs. I already own one of her music video DVD compilations (I had to have the video for Physical).

I agree. I can't wait to see McLibel, not to mention Gay Republicans. Scary! Just in time for Halloween!
