80's Flashback
9 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ya, it stinks. But, it took me back to the wacky 80's when mom and pop video stores where in every corner, when it cost 10 bucks to rent a beat up old tape and you had to leave a 50 dollar deposit before you even walked out of the place. I actually rented this back in the day and watched it with my buddies...this was a weekend ritual at my house. I was one of the few that worked part time while in high school and saved up the $800.00 for a VCR. I spent more on that than my first car, but boy did I love it. For the first time, I controlled what I watched, and horror films were and still are my favorite. The tapes that were available where either big name titles or those little, obscure films that have dissolved long ago. One of my buddies paid a small fortune of an original 1986 copy. Man, it took me back...if you like bad films are good, see this one, especially if you were a teenager during the 80's.
