Steven Tyler Opens Up About How His Addiction Battle in the '80s Led Him to Start New Charity Helping Abused Girls
It's been almost 30 years since Steven Tyler first dreamed up the title lyric to the 1989 Aerosmith hit "Janie's Got a Gun," a song about a girl who shoots her father in a desperate effort to end his sexual abuse. Now the tune, which derived from Tyler's own experience meeting victims of sexual abuse in rehab while struggling to overcome his addictions in the '80s, has new legs, thanks to the rocker's Janie's Fund, a foundation that helps provide resources for victims in need. "I think this is what I was born to do," Tyler tells People in this week's issue.

Night of the Demons 2 (1994)

Directed by: Brian Trenchard-Smith

Written by: Joe Augustyn, James Penzi

Cast: Merle Kennedy, Amelia Kinkade, Cristi Harris, Rick Peters, Jennifer Rhodes, Christine Taylor

Released on home video in 1994, Night of the Demons 2 is a bit of a surprise. The MPAA had spent the past decade beating up horror films is response to the slasher craze. The failure of the new Nc-17 rating was becoming evident, as most theaters and newspaper listings treated films with the rating like pornographic features (Showgirls didn't help much). The advent of home video was raising new concerns about children getting a hold of unrated horror films - with no one remembering that a decade ago, retailers were selling Rambo 2 toys to children.

James Reviews The Slumber Party Massacre Trilogy [DVD Review]

Let’s go back to the 1980′s. Ronald Reagan was president. Our economy was in the shitter. AIDS was making news as a real threat to society. And the slasher film was making tons of money in the box office and at home with a new fangled contraption called a VHS player. Halloween. Friday the 13th. Nightmare on Elm Street. Those are but a few names that get thrown around when people speak about the slasher genre. But one series that tends to get forgotten or mixed up in the mess is The Slumber Party Massacre Trilogy.

But do they still match up to their brethren in the genre?

In 1982, Roger Corman wanted to cash in on the slasher craze,

Interview With Scott Westmoreland of Slumber Party Massacre II

Scott Westmoreland was another of the entrprising young actors trying to make it back in Hollywood in the 80's. Even though he didn't make it as a film actor, he will always be part of a movie, Slumber Party Massacre II, that holds a special place in many a genre fan's bloody heart. Slumber Party Massacre was produced by Roger Corman's Concorde Pictures studio and released by the now defunct Nelson Entertainment. The film enjoyed a re-release on the DVD market in the early part of the decade under Roger Corman's New Concorde Home Entertainment label only to be discontinued and sky rocket in cost to the point that it was unaffordable. Lucky for us, the film is getting re-released yet again by Shout! Factory as part of The Slumber Party Massacre collection. Slumber Party Massacre II co-starred Crystal Bernard, Jennifer Rhodes, and Patrick Lowe. Here is what
