Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Sometimes imitation can lead to sincere embarrassment. I’ll let you decide if sitting through this song & dance number clearly inspired by Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video from the 1985 TV horror musical The Midnight Hour will make you want to get dead.
It must be said that The Midnight Hour boasted quite an eclectic cast of B and C list actors, some whose careers had long since peaked and others who would go on to become better known than they were at the time they appeared in this.
The bell of this monster’s ball was Shari Belafonte. “Get Dead” was her big musical number, and it delivered everything you could expect from a cheesy TV movie stab at recreating the aesthetics »
Legend Films' Student Bodies: Boasting as the "Original Teen Horror Comedy," Student Bodies follows the crazed serial murderer "The Breather" as he picks off sex-starved students one-by-one with everything from paper clips, to a chalkboard eraser, to a household bookend! You'll never look at horror movies the same again once you take in this original spoof-hit that can easily be seen as an inspiration for all of today's "Scary Movies." Legend Films' Jekyll and Hyde Together Again:The laughter is as big as the scares as actor Mark Blankfield takes on the dual role of the famed Dr. Jekyll and his "inner-beast" Mr. Hyde in the comedy hit Jekyll and Hyde Together Again. Robert Louis Stevenson would be turning in his grave at this hilarious adaptation »

The Incredible Shrinking Woman (Original Release Date: 30 January 1981)
There never was a happier home for the re-sized creature feature than the fifties. So many of the classics of the genre (if it is a genre) were released in that decade: Them! (1954), Tarantula (1955), The Amazing Colossal Man (1957), The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), and the Abbott-less Lou Costello comedy, The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock (1959). (For the fetishists out there: included in The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock is a scene where Costello's character showers his giantess with an elephant hose.) These movies occasionally carried an agenda -- more often than not, the agenda had to do with how we ought to be more careful with technology in the atomic age--though they weren't necessarily always “message” movies. Many of them existed just to exploit the spectacle, or to present us with the novelty of humans interacting with wrong-sized stuff. »
