My favorite 24-hour horror movie marathon, the Massacre takes place October 12 at the Patio Theater here in Chicago and the guest list is truly surprising. Fans can expect to meet, greet and get stuff signed by Mark Patton, the star of A Nightmare on Elm St. 2, Fred Walton, the director of April Fool's Day and the original classic When A Stranger Calls and last but hardly least, the one and only Gary Sherman, director of such classics as Dead and Buried, Raw Meat, and Vice Squad. The schedule of films looks fun as well. 11:30am - Trailer Trash (Vintage Horror Trailers & Shorts)Noon - Edison's Frankenstein (Silent with Live Organ!)12:30pm - Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman2pm - The Tomb of Ligeia3:45pm - Martin5:30pm - Dead and Buried (dir.

As all lovers of crime, suspense thriller, war, western, horror and science fiction films know, creating a truly great cinematic villain is no easy task. When it happens, it’s virtually impossible to forget that character.
We’ll now take a look at the greatest film villains of the 1980’s.
The criteria for this article is the same as my previous article Cinema’s Greatest Villains: The 1970’s: the villains must be from live-action films-no animated features-and must pose some type of direct or indirect lethal threat. The villains can be either individuals or small groups that act as one unit.
The villains must be human or human in appearance, so no shape-shifting alien from John Carpenter’s amazing 1982 The Thing, no Aliens from James Cameron’s classic 1986 sequel and no Predator from John McTiernan’s beloved 1987 film of the same name.
Also, individuals that are the central protagonists/antiheroes »

This week for Exploitation Alley, I’ve got a good one for you readers. A movie that scared the hell out of me as a kid, and is still pretty intense decades later. I’m talking about Gary Sherman’s 1982 thriller, Vice Squad. So, stay away from the corners and watch out for Ramrod, it’s Exploitation Alley time!
Vice Squad tells the story of Princess (Season Hubley, Escape From New York and also one of my all time favorite films: Hardcore), a single mother and business woman, who turns to prostitution when things get tough. Princess is willing to do pretty much anything with her prospective clients, as long as there’s some decent money involved. When asked if she’s into “golden showers”, she initially declines but when the customer offers her a little bit more money, Princess jumps at the chance. She’s definitely down on her luck. »
